Sophie and Mike intimate wedding at Nottingham West Bridgford Registry Office

Sophie and Mike’s intimate wedding was an absolute dream to photograph. I adore the simplicity of micro gatherings and I enjoy shooting this type of weddings. 

Sophie and Mike kept it very simple: Just the two of them, with a friend as one witness and myself as the other. It was a beautiful ceremony at the West Bridgford Registration Office: full of emotions and very romantic. It has the run-away love vibe. 

Sophie contacted me a few months before their wedding with a very exciting email saying that they booked the Registry Office last minute and hoping for low key wedding where they both are planning to wear suits! Simple, but so exciting – I was so curious to meet these two!

Sophie and Mike wanted to have beautiful pictures to print and hang on a wall in their house – Sophie mentioned a timeless gallery with lots of black and white photos. 

During our Zoom Call we brainstormed a few ideas for great backdrops and we decided on a Nottingham City Centre as the main location. As the weather has been extremely wet I recommended getting a clear umbrella – just in case! 

We met at Nottingham Lace Market about just over 1 hour before the ceremony to have the pre-wedding shoot. It was so much fun to document Sophie and Mike’s love story – just seeing them having fun, being in love, and celebrating this day….but without pressure, months of planning, or making too many decisions. 

After the shoot, we drove to West Bridgford Registration Office where Sophie and Mike got married and read vows to each other which got them both in tears! It was beautiful to see how much getting married meant to them. After the ceremony, we took a few more photos in a nearby park.

After I delivered my photos to Sophie and Mike I received an email from the bride:

”Wow! I’m speechless and can’t stop looking through all the photos! Thank you so much for making our special day even better, and taking these gorgeous snapshots which we will treasure forever! ”

I love capturing small and intimate weddings. There’s something so beautiful and authentic about couples choosing to do things their way, without all the fuss and stress of a big event. If you’re thinking about having a micro wedding or elopement, I’d love to chat about how I can document your love story. Just drop me a message and let’s make some magic together.

Here is a gallery of my favorites:
