What can I say about Abi + Dan’s amazing East Bridgford Hill wedding, AKA “Willstock”? There’s just not enough room here…
Sometimes, as a wedding photographer, I book clients that are the perfect fit. Within minutes of meeting Abi & Dan, I knew this wedding was gonna be an absolute pleasure to be a part of. And I wasn’t wrong!
It felt like shooting the wedding of my good friends, not clients. Their choices for the venue, decor, entertainment, etc makes me wanna get married to Evelyne all over again!
East Bridgford Hill Weddings
East Bridgford Hill was the perfect venue for them. A great, laid-back vibe and the staff there really looked after us.
They named their tables after some of my favourite bands – Pearl Jam, Deftones, Nine Inch Nails, Letlive., Dillinger Escape Plan etc. Jason from Letlive. even sent them a message on Instagram on their wedding day!
Then there were the hilarious speeches, a signing piano for a guest book, some trippy “Alice In Wonderland” decor, a brilliant playlist and ending the day with not one, but TWO bands and a silent disco meant the party never stopped.
Massive thanks to Abi & Dan for trusting me to cover their fantastic day and thanks to the moustachioed Mr John Dent for joining me for this one.
Since the wedding, Abi & Dan have gone on to be really great friends. They’ve stayed at our home, we’ve been to festivals together and we constantly share music nuggets on Facebook. On my workshops, I talk about finding your ideal clients, and in my head, I picture people like Abi & Dan. These two rock!
East Bridgford Hill is such a brilliant wedding venue and I’d LOVE to shoot there again. If you’re planning on getting married there, make sure you drop me an email via the Contact Page.
Below is a short slideshow of some of my favourite recent wedding photos… Take a look. And turn the speakers up!
I’m a Brit living with my wife, Evelyne and our three boys! Evelyne and I met in the Alps in 2003 when Evelyne thought she was a cool snowboarder and I thought I was a superstar DJ.
I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and have now shot almost 500 weddings, mostly in Canada & the UK, but I absolutely love travelling anywhere in the world. I enjoyed it when I started but love my job now more than ever.
