Samantha & Jason’s spring wedding happened at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel in Derbyshire, and luckily the bride, groom and their guests were bathed in the spring sunshine all day! Being hired at this Leicestershire/Derby venue as a documentary wedding photographer is always fun, as the grounds are quaint and there are loads of places to shoot – Including the field across the road (which we didn’t actually use at Sam and Jason’s wedding, as the couple wanted to mingle with guests and capture lots of documentary style wedding photographs instead).
Sam and Jason had paid loads of attention to little DIY details, including boxes of toys for the kids and a photo-board which was filled with their happy memories up to this point in their relationship. The ceremony in the stable yard was lovely, though Jason looked understandably nervous before the ceremony, fortunately he had his groomsmen there to calm the nerves for him. After the ceremony we captured lots of documentary wedding photography images outside in the Leicestershire venue to make the most of the sunshine, with a mixture of group wedding photography, some beautiful candid couple wedding photographs and then lots of documentary shots, to capture the real feel of the day.
