Wedding Photography

Sarah & Wayne

St John the evangelist, Ilkeston

Festival Inn, Trowel, Nottingham

May 2022

My day started with bridal preparation, and with a bridal party of 18 I knew there was much to do. From there we had a beautiful service conducted by Rev Andrew in the lovely St John's Church in Ilkeston. The sun shone and we took confetti and group shots outside the family's church. From there the reception was held at the Festival Inn and I left Sarah & Wayne after the cake cutting and first dances in the knowledge that celebrations would continue into the night!

Before their couple's shoot Becky shared a mood board of images and we created some fun shots in Sutton Park. For their wedding day, Neil & I shot in a colourful, spring style and picked up the great colours in the dress, flowers and suits to keep the same mood. A small outdoor garden gave a backdrop for fun outdoor shots during the day and early evening.

Farmhouse at Mackworth

Dani & Jordan's wedding took place at the fabulous Folly at the Farmhouse at Mackworth. Bridal prep (including shots in a rolltop bath) preceded a lovely ceremony and wedding breakfast. We took some nice shots outside during the day and even after the cake cutting and first dances we went outdoors again to get some shots as the light faded.

An awesome wedding with a fun and relaxed couple that could be summed up in Phil's suit and the intimate couple photos we took after the ceremony.

"Stuart you are a brilliant photographer, organised and knew exactly what we wanted. Neither of us felt you were in our faces, it was so relaxed just how we wanted it. We would also like to say "thank you" not only for being our amazing photographer but also for all the support you gave us all day long ."

"Stuart was an absolute pleasure to work with for both our engagement and wedding photoshoots. Right from day one he was very understanding of our requirements and we felt at ease with him as our photographer. He made a lot of great suggestions while also incorporating our own ideas and the photos we've seen so far are absolutely fantastic!"

"Stuart is a truly skilled photographer, a kind gentleman who goes out of his way to make it all a completely pleasant experience. He is assertive but gentle when trying to rally guests for photos. Our wedding consisted of two brides so this slightly altered normal procedures when it came to capturing both the brides at every stage Stuart completely took this in his stride, planned effectively and beautifully captured all the special moments we asked and more."

"The whole day was so very special. You made the taking of our photos very easy. We didn’t have to worry about anything. You were very professional and extremely friendly. Your service is superb and the photos are brilliant."

"Stuart was incredible from start to finish. He’s an amazing photographer with a passion for his craft. Instant rapport, not at all phased by our disabilities or complex needs and even managed to put our three autistic children at ease (which is not an easy task!). Stuart was quiet and unobtrusive which was just what we needed as we are both so very camera shy.
We would not hesitate to recommend Stuart and Portfolio Photographic to everyone!"

"As with all photos I was keeping my fingers crossed that, as long as there were one or two that I liked, I'd be happy. There were not one or two. There were not ten or twenty. There were hundreds. I'm not even exaggerating. HUNDREDS of photos that are so absolutely stunningly beautiful.
Stuart captured the very essence of the two separate days down to a tee in exactly the way we had wanted. Fun and frivolity. Epic and atmospheric. Non posed. Non formal. Friendly. Fierce. Fabulous.
Stuart has done us proud."

"Portfolio Photographic did a wonderful job at our wedding. They were super professional, exceptionally friendly, and very well organised. I got every shot I wanted and more I'd never thought about. Their post production was spot on, and we've now got amazing physical memories of our special day. I wholeheartedly recommend them for any job, and I can't thank them enough for our top quality photographs."
