Rosa & Tony’s Nottingham wedding took place mid-September on a bright & sunny day. The morning preparations took place at The Atrium with the ceremony at Nottingham Council House, and evening at the Canalhouse.
The girls drank sparkling rosé, enjoyed an Italian snack spread while getting their hair & makeup did. Their finishing look was an alternative, pin-up style which looked amazing! Rosa wore a stunning floor-length, white gown (which had pockets!), and finished the rock ‘n roll look with a custom, leather ‘wifey’ jacket. The bridal troupe hopped on the tram and made their way over to Nottingham Council House. Tony was waiting for his wifey-to-be, dressed with his groomsmen in white shirts, red braces and Converse.
The ceremony was a touching affair, with many happy tears. A Winnie the Pooh reading was given paying homage to Rosa’s Granny, which was lovely. Afterwards, everyone made their way out for some group photos on the staircase, before a huge group photo outside the building itself.
The Canalhouse was a short 15 minute walk away on foot, so that’s just how everyone made their way over. Tony stopped off at a pop-up flower shop and gifted his new wife a single, red rose, which was adorable.
The Canalhouse was decorated in heaps of fairy lights and red & white bunting. There was also lots of blacks, gold, roses, feathers, candles, lanterns, old records and gin centrepieces. The theme of the day was a nod to Rosa’s burlesque background. The newlyweds and I took 15 minutes to ourselves to take some gorgeous couple photos outdoors around the surrounding canal, before heading back inside to join family & friends.
Speeches came a little later on in the evening, along with the wedding breakfast. After plenty of toasts and Prosecco drinking later the music began. Rosa & Tony began the evening of dancing together to Latch by Sam Smith – a song that Tony listened to when they were first dating. It always reminded him of Rosa, and how sweet that it’ll now remind them both of their perfect, special day.
