Becky and Michael were married at St Barnabas Cathedral Nottingham
The day started for me at the home of Becky and Micheal – capturing the -bride-to-be and her girls getting ready.
It was a relaxed morning, everything was on time, make-up and hair looked awesome, and it wasn’t long until we left for the Church!
This is the first time I have had the chance to photograph in the stunning St Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham – it was STUNNING.
It was nice to be at a Church wedding where the Priest didn’t restrict where I could go. However, given my style and how I work, I do tend to move during the Hymns as its the perfect time to not be distracting and I only move perhaps 2 or 3 times during a typical 40 minute Church ceremony.
Once the Ceremony was done and dusted, it was off outside into the sunshine and onto the red London bus to take us to Trent Bridge Cricket Ground where we were met by the awesome and very helpful staff.

“I have no words for how absolutely fantastic Andy is as a wedding photographer. We found an advert for him on Facebook, and I’m beyond grateful we did!
Firstly, Andy is ridiculously punctual at getting back to you – I think he’s replied to my messages the same day every time. I can’t describe how helpful this is when you’re planning a wedding! And there is no question too small, no problem he can’t conquer to get you the best day possible, and no bit of advice he misses sharing with you to ensure you get the best photos possible!
Andy was extremely thorough before our wedding, but on the day he was absolutely amazing. We hardly noticed he was there, he just mingled and took photos of absolutely everything for us. He went above and beyond for us, even offering to take things to the venue in his car for us! Even our venue were commenting on how he’d stayed later than any photographer they had known before, and how lovely he had been in dealing with the staff there. He moved heaven and earth to make sure he was on our bus from the church to the venue so we could see what happened on the bus, even though it was completely inconvenient for him to do so, and we really appreciated how thoughtful he was in all the details of our day.
Andy was then in contact with us promptly after our wedding, and the photos came extremely quickly. And if we had been impressed so far, that was nothing to the photos we got at the end. They are absolutely stunning, and the story he’s been able to tell with the subtle little bits of our day, like catching a relative that rarely smiles smiling, or my Dad having a bit of a cry, and there were some absolutely stunning art like shots that I really wasn’t expecting but that really made the photographs for us. We hadn’t even known he was there most of the time, but what he’d made in the end was magical. Every shot we’d wanted was there, and any we’d discussed with him before were covered. He even bought lighting equipment so we could have photos at dusk at the venue, and they came out brilliantly.
As I said at the start, I don’t think words can sum up how amazing Andy is. He is one of the nicest people that we’ve ever met, and is so humble with how talented he is. His price is more than reasonable, and his dedication to getting exactly what you want from your wedding photos is second to none. We have had so many of our guests and the staff coming up to tell us how lovely he was too, which is exactly what we’d noticed. You really couldn’t find a more perfect wedding photographer anywhere, and Andy we really wanted to say thank you so very much for making our wedding so special, we really appreciate it.”
