Reportage Wedding Photography by Shell Woodward

Having met Adam & Ami a couple of times & kept in touch online for over 12 months made me feel like I was attending a friends wedding and I believe they felt the same as I received a beautiful invitation, was spoiled rotten by sharing their wedding breakfast, and partied with them till late, and I would have stayed longer if possible.

Amazing family and friends made me feel so welcome and the venue... wow... yeah... best hotel venue I've experienced to date. The staff went above and beyond to ensure the day ran perfectly, the interior is a photographer's dream and the food.. omg, yeah, i'll be returning! Hallmark

It was wonderful to be back at Goosedale and things have really improved there. They now have vegan meal options including muffins and BBQ food, the gardens are coming on nicely and the staff are all happy and pleasant.

Ami decorated the venue beautifully, full of grace, just like herself. A wonderful day. Made friends. Happy days.

My very own Rock n Roll bride chose one of Nottingham's most beautiful wedding venues - the gorgeous Risley Hall. Her choice of colours, decorations, flowers & attire complemented the venue like I've never seen before making all the historical features, decor & ambiance pop out against her modern twist. Bravo Mrs Beeson, bravo!

My first visit to Shottle Hall and I was stunned by its beauty, awed by its character, grounds and furnishings and very pleased with the staff, food & marquee.  

A day full of tiny feet on the dance floor, groups of friends laughing and wonderful families uniting in celebration and a fantastic sunset too.... just perfect!

I was joined by  a must for any event as well as bumping into guests who i'd previously met at other weddings. What a fantastic day!

Laura & Ryan's wonderful wedding day was captured at the beautiful Thrumpton Hall, another of Nottinghamshire's amazing wedding venues that are dotted over the East Midland's landscape. We're so lucky.

It was my first visit here (I know, how did that happen right!) and I wasn't disappointed. Just like Woodborough, Prestwold, Kelham, Shottle, Cockcliffe, Colwick and Wolloton Hall(s), it was full of charm, character and culture, that makes the best of backdrops for any wedding. Romance was in abundance here, from the four poster beds to the bridge over the lake. 

A lovely day, with a fantastic couple.

I returned to Kelham House today to capture Lizi and Martin's special day. It never fails to awe me. Kelham house has it all, the amazing grounds, history, quirkiness, charm, character, great natural lighting and lovely, warm, welcoming staff.

As always the day went swimmingly well embedded with laughter, love and tiny footprints tapping on the dance floor and the heavens didn't open until the last professional picture was taken. 

Lizi has an Instagram tag for her snaps - #LiziandMartin2017 

Such a beautiful, elegant bride... stunning.

Belper and weddings go together like bread and butter and the brides of Belper are always stunning, must be something in the water. The River Gardens is a popular spot for the private shoot and it never disappoints, no matter what season it happens to be, just like the rest of the Peak District. Peak District weddings and wedding venues are truly some of the best in the UK.
