Rachel & Matthew’s wedding in Rolleston & Tutbury

Rachel & Matt

We LOVE nice and relaxed weddings and Rachel and Matt’s wedding didn’t disappoint! A super organised bride in the morning meant we had lots of spare time to get some amazing pictures around Hoar Cross Hall before leaving for the ceremony, no lists of group photos to do, lots and lots of time after the ceremony to head for a walk around the local village for couple shots, amazing cakes as canapés with some bubbly to wash them down with, and none of the normal traditional wedding formalities – we loved it!!

So, I joined Rachel and Jess in the morning, only to find that she was so orgainised, she was almost ready and waiting to leave, so we had lots of time to head downstairs and have a wander around the beautiful Hoar Cross Hall for photos of her and her brother Daniel and bridesmaid Jess. A real luxury for us as photographers as its normally crazy busy during the morning, so it was nice to be able to make the most of the hotel!

We headed of for the ceremony at St. Mary’s in Rolleston and then instead of the usual list of group photos, we ditched tradition and went for a walk around the village where they live, allowing guests to head of and enjoy a drink or two in the sun! Awesome!

Just as we were leaving the village for the reception, I suggested we  stop at a recently cut corn field on the way, so we abandoned our cars on a grassy verge and went for a quick stroll around the corn field in the beautiful sunshine. Well worth the extra 5 mins 🙂

Such  a lovely relaxed atmosphere back at the marquee and it was clear to see that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Here are a few of our favourites!
