Weddings ~ Couples ~ Familes

Donna & Michael

I first met Donna at a wedding fayre at Colwick Hall back on the 18th September 2022 and we click straight away! When she told me about all the plans, it sounded amazing and right up my street! An outdoor wedding at Hothorpe, that was going to be filled with colour with an Alice in Wonderland twist, up for fun photos, loved my smoke bombs and they were doing their wedding how they wanted… plus, Donna has pink hair!!!

I was so excited that they choose me to capture their day and let me show you why…

The date was the 17th of August. The sunlit gardens of Hothorpe Hall witnessed a celebration straight out of a fairytale as Donna and Michael brought their love story to life amidst an enchanting Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding. The air buzzed with anticipation, and the vibrancy of colours adorned every corner, setting the stage for an unforgettable journey down the rabbit hole of love.

Just beautiful

The venue was transformed into a wonderland where fantasy met reality. The setting itself seemed to be plucked from the pages of Lewis Carroll’s beloved tale.

Ceremony time

Donna, radiating elegance in her tea length gown from Beau Belles, and Michael, with eyes only for his beloved, exchanged vows under a canopy of vibrant blooms. Laughter and joy echoed through the air as the couple sealed their commitment with a kiss.

The first kiss as husband and wife

The celebration wasn’t just about the decorations or the themeβ€”it was a canvas painted with the couple’s love story. Donna and Michael’s personalities shone through every detail, making each guest feel like an essential part of their magical day.
