Unique Details in Wedding Photography Nottingham

leave a comment

As a wedding photographer in Nottingham and Mansfield, I know exactly how important my job is when capturing the unforgettable moments of a wedding day. Although the day may pass in a whirlwind of emotions and excitement for the happy couple and the guests, I make it my job to record those special details so that everyone can look back on the photos with admiration and joy.

Place Holders and Table Settings

This lovely collection of images shows a selection of details from a recent wedding. I particularly like the close up of the table setting, showing a cute slate heart as a place holder, simple white linen and classic cutlery. The focus of this photograph is on the detail of the table setting, with the rest of the scene slightly out of focus to accentuate the focal point. Images of details such as the signs for the reception area and the venue add personal touches to details of the day that may be overlooked otherwise. It’s all about the detail!

Handmade Wedding Accessories

One of my personal favourites and something of an inspiration to me were the delicate handmade details of this wedding day. Everything from the bridesmaid’s dresses and groom’s ties, bow ties and handkerchiefs, to the bunting, table decorations and wedding favours were all designed by the bride and created by her Mother. Needless to say, details such as this cannot be overlooked in great wedding photography, and I did my very best to do them justice.

Lego Cufflinks and Colour Co-ordinated Accessories

This quirky image is a great example of the importance of capturing the details in my wedding photography Nottingham. These fantastic groomsmen have all embraced a Lego cufflink theme in hot pink and royal blue, adding a quirky, individual touch to something that could so easily be overlooked. They also match the colour scheme of the wedding, tying in with everything from socks, ribbons and accessories.

Nottingham Wedding Photographer Suggests Inspiring Ideas for Wedding Cakes

leave a comment

If you’re in the process of planning a wedding and struggling for ideas for your wedding cake, we’ve picked out a few of our favourites that will definitely inspire you (and probably make you hungry!) Here at James Davies wedding photography in Nottingham, we’ve been lucky enough to see our fair share of absolutely amazing wedding cakes.

Quirky, Personalised 3 Tiered Wedding Cake

For those looking for something a little different, this quirky wedding cake is sure to make an impression on your guests. We love the fact that it is just so personal; the cake toppers lovingly crafted into miniature versions of the bride and groom from icing are gorgeous. The middle layer has been designed to resemble a tree trunk with the couple’s initials carved into it to look like wood. It’s even complete with knots and grain to create the effect of bark. The woodland feel is continued in the top and bottom tier, which are decorated with large white flowers made from icing, and blades of grass around the base.

Traditional Tiered Wedding Cake with White Royal Icing

Tiered cakes have always been a traditional wedding staple, and this gorgeous example is a beautifully classic example. Finished with deep purple ribbon to compliment the day’s accessories, this cake also features delicate hearts finely crafted from white icing to add interest and testure to each individual cake. Topped with a trio of white roses, this is a gorgeous example of a classic and elegant tiered wedding cake.

Modern Floral Tiered Wedding Cake

This gorgeous wedding cake is a contemporary twist on a classic tiered design. Although the white royal icing, ribbon and tiered arrangement are very traditional, this couple have opted for a modern floral design that cascades down the length of the cake. The large yellow gerberas, orange roses and splashes of green foliage all delicately crafted from sugar icing make for a bright, cheerful cake with plenty of personality.

Pre-Wedding ‘Getting Ready’ Images from Wedding Photography Nottinghamshire

leave a comment

As a professional wedding photographer in Nottinghamshire, I really enjoy capturing the ‘getting ready’ moments before a wedding. There’s something really personal and beautiful about documenting the excitement and anticipation of the run up to the big event, and I feel honoured to be able to capture these private moments in my wedding photography. It’s becoming more and more popular to not only capture intimate moments at your wedding, but to document the getting ready stage using candid wedding photography too.

‘Getting Ready’ Photo Tips

If you plan on inviting your wedding photographer to take some pre-wedding photos such as these, there are some things that you can do to ensure that you get the best shots. Of course, the morning of your wedding is likely to be slightly manic, and there may well be a bit of a mess going on in the area that you’re trying to get organised in. But try your best to keep it as tidy and uncluttered as is possible, the last thing you want is to see is empty pizza boxes! You could also coordinate your dressing gown or pyjamas to match your wedding colour scheme, this way you’ll tie the pre-wedding photos in with the ones from the rest of the day, creating a seamless continuation of images.

Candid ‘Make Up’ Mirror Shot

This is a great shot of a bride to be carefully applying her make up in the mirror. It’s a really intimate and personal photograph, capturing the careful preparation for, and quiet anticipation of the ceremony. I really like the way that she is reflected in the mirror in this photograph; it adds another dimension to the picture and suggests the candid capture of a private moment in the run up to the main event.

Series of Pre-Wedding ‘Getting Ready’ Images

This example of a pre wedding ‘getting ready’ photograph documents the transformation of the bride through the use of three images side by side. I love the way that in the first image the subject looks directly into the camera with her hair gently falling over her face. The second image depicts a makeup artist carefully applying her lipstick, with closed shadowed eyes and flawless skin. I particularly like the third image, which is a close up of her glossy brown hair, teased into beautiful shiny curls that cascade down her back; a beautiful and striking contrast to the white of her wedding gown.
