When I was asked to photograph Jo and Rachel’s big day I was soooooo excited! First wedding with two brides and two frocks!! Jo & Rach are so much fun and quirky…I was a very giddy lady. Their wedding took place at Nottingham Trent University where Rachel studied and the city where they first met. Here’s some words from the girls and info about the day along with some of my fav shots.. The dresses were from The Wedding Club in Birmingham. They had a pianist during the ceremony – he played Moon River on the way in, and Angry Anderson’s “Suddenly” on the way out. During the drinks reception 1930s big band tunes were played and in the evening DJ (MC Productions), and an Elvis tribute act (booked throughAlive Network) he was brilliant and had everybody up busting some shapes. Rachel’s bouquet was made up of ivory roses and purple lissianthus. Jo’s bouquet was hand made (by Jo) with vintage brooches. Flowers were by Zinc Floral Design, and Annette’s flower stall in Nottingham. One of the readings was a poem written for Rachel by Jo and they had photos of their parents’ weddings on display; the men had waistcoats made from family tartans; and the girls took care of two bay trees and two olive trees for six months – so that they could be draped with fairy lights on the day and the university girls recreated their graduation photo – 15 years’ later! “We used a sketch of the venue on our invitations and that carried through all the stationery. Our ceremony was held in the Old Chemistry Theatre, and the reception was in the Old Library so we tried to pick up on these details. Everyone’s place card was a bookmark with a personalised quote chosen just for them. It took ages to do this, but it was worth it on the day – everyone took them home as a memento of the day” You can also see their wedding blogged on bridesupnorth by clicking on this link.
