Jez and Carolyn at The Embankment

On the 4th of March, I was invited to photograph Jez and Carolyn's relaxed wedding at The Embankment in Nottingham. This Tudor style, recently re-launched stylish venue was the perfect backdrop to the richly coloured romantic themed weddings. 

The Embankment have utilised the historic aspects of the room to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The room was lit by magnificent crystal chandeliers when the sun set and in daylight, the sun streamed through the original leaded stained glass bay windows. The architecture of the room made it easy for me to take picture of the guests as throughout the room there were original architectural arches giving the venue a feeling of history and heritage. 

Throughout the ceremony and wedding breakfast, the personal touches enhanced the relaxed intimate feeling of the day. The bride and groom wrote their own vows which were both funny and heartwarming and the bride made her own of the shoulder, fitted black dress.

The evening reception was filled with fun and laughter thanks to the amazing Dindongdaddios, their uplifting swing music got everyone up dancing from young to old.
