It isn’t often Mrs Angelic gets to play in the sunshine as part of a wedding fair but yesterday she did just that. Donning her Vintage Booth hat she took one of our Vintage Photobooths to East Bridgford Hill to take part in their “Wedding Festival On The Hill”. The brainchild of Emma and Amanda (owner and co-ordinator) it involved a couple “renewing their vows” coupled with exhibitors attending as suppliers to that renewal. As a quirky idea it worked really well.
Future brides and grooms attended as guests of the couple renewing their vows generally staying for the majority of the day. The grooms took themselves out to the sun-drenched rear lawns and relaxed with a drink from Boxed Drinks’ Horsebox Bar.
They tried their hand at Clay Pigeon Shooting and croquet meanwhile their brides were able to watch the skills of make up artists and hairdressers at work. These skills were provided by Alison and Barbara for hair, Blush Moments for make up whilst Shade Bridal, Daisy Dresses and Giulia provided beautiful dresses and hats.
Guests and exhibitors all congregated to watch the ceremony charmingly conducted by Ali accompanied by ARK Angel and The Nottinghamshire Harpist. The music provided a beautiful addition to the renewal service and all the guests joined in with the spirit of the festival creating a lovely atmosphere worthy of a real celebration.
Once the ceremony had been completed guests had the opportunity to take part in the entertainment that had been provided as part of the festival. As well as our gorgeous Photobooth they could take a ride in Betty or Bertie around the village, dabble on the blackjack table or have a boogie. Guests could chat about dynamic displays, watch the lovely calligraphy talents of Danielle Lummis and marvel at the truly quintissential English floral work of Daisy Works all whilst nibbling on delightful canapes and listening to the gramaphones playing their records.
We weren’t exhibiting the wedding photography as Angelic Photo but it was lovely to meet up with the talented Mike and the quirky Hannah as they bustled about capturing the renewal….and some gorgeous gluten free cake!
Mr Angelic had been lucky enough to attend the “Swing On The Hill” event held the night before and, as always, he had his trusty Canon camera to hand to capture some images of the evening at this gorgeous Nottinghamshire venue. We will leave you with a sample of the images he captured so you can judge for yourselves.
