Wedding at The Arkwright Rooms

Rachel & Ben chose to have their wedding at The Arkwright Rooms, this beautiful building is part of Nottingham Trent Uni and The Nottingham Conference Centre. It is a beautiful building and is a great choice for a city centre wedding!

The bridal preparations

We started the morning at Rachel’s parents house in Nuthall where she was getting ready with all her bridesmaids. Hair and make-up was well under way with the lovely ladies from LW Makeup and Mon Amie Hair.  After lots of laughs, some gifts and some happy tears, it was time to head to the church, which luckily was just round the corner.

The wedding ceremony

I’ve got to say that Nuthall has the most beautiful church and it dates back to the 11th century! Ben & Rachel had filled the building with music for their wedding; a fabulous organist and an amazing choir – the sound was amazing and the made the hair on the back of your neck stand up! There was a lovely ceremony followed by the usual signing of the register, then it was time to head out for some confetti before it rained! Everyone then got on the bus to the tram stop and headed off to Nottingham 🙂

A musical day

Rachel & Ben are a very musical couple, Rachel sings and Ben plays the guitar and they even sent out a CD of their music as invitations! So on the tram from the church, Ben had organised a musical surprise for Rachel, an acapella group called The Simpletons, they sang throughout the whole tram journey and then accompnaied everyone on the short to the venue too! Then at the venue, two of the guys from Show Me The Money performed throughout the drinks reception and then at dinner the wonderful Ark Angel entertained everyone too 🙂

After dinner and a few more photos it was time for Rachel & Ben to get on stage and perform a couple of somgs for everyone – it was amazing – great job guys!! Followed by Show Me The Money again, this time as a full band and they did a great job of getting everyone up dancing!

It was a great day, full of music and happiness. We’ve never shot a wedding at The Arkwright Rooms before and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves – many thanks to Nicky (the Event Manager) for being so accommodating and friendly!!
