Shottle Hall Wedding Photography

The Wedding Venue- Shottle Hall, Belper

"Shottle Hall wasn't our first choice for our venue. Unfortunately, our original venue closed down. When this happened my mother-in-law suggested that we paid Shottle a visit as she had been to weddings there before. On the day of our visit, I remember crying in the drive way before even entering as it was just perfect! It was everything we were looking for, rustic and exclusive. Then we saw the Orangery and I was sold. The whole venue is absolutely stunning and Lois, Helen & Nathan (with the rest of the team) were amazing through the whole process from start to finish! After our first visit, I cancelled viewings with other venues as I knew nothing would compare!"

The Dress, Shoes and Flowers

"My dress and shoes were from Scarlett Poppy in Yorkshire (where I live). It was heavily altered by their inhouse seamstress, Louise, who helped bring my dream of a dress with a 3 quarter length sleeve to life! I also had parts of my mum's wedding dress added into the design to make it ultra special. I visited Scarlett Poppy first and then a number of other shops. But unfortunately, I had already fallen in love with Mai and so returned to Scarlett Poppy and made my wedding dress dreams come true!"

"My flowers were from a small business, Pretty Perfect Bouquets. Rebecca was amazing and helped me every step of the way. It was important to me that I could keep my flowers after the wedding so I wanted to go for an artificial bouquet. Rebecca helped me choose the perfect style and found the most amazing roses to match my pastel green and white colour scheme. She also helped me to incorporate daisies and lilies into my bouquet, which was important to me as my daughters are Daisy and Lily and I really wanted to include my flower girls in my flowers."

The Make up and Hair

"I am not a very girly girl so hair and make up was where I struggled. I wanted this process to be as straightforward as possible with lots of guidance. I booked my hair and make-up through Absolutely Flawless and Emma (make-up) and Oksana (hair) helped me to make decisions on what I wanted very easily by asking all the right questions and guiding me. They did an amazing job on the day of getting all 6 of us ready.."

"On the day of the wedding, I surprised most of the bridal party and myself! I'm a very anxious person and a control freak so normally I would want everything to be running perfectly and need to know what is going on at every moment of the day. But I felt so relaxed and Emma & Oksana helped to guide us through every step of the morning. "
