Roshan and Jenna were married during the summer at Newton House in the village of Newton Solney in Derbyshire. Newton House is a relatively new wedding venue in Derbyshire and this was our first visit and wedding there. The day began with preparation photographs of Jenna and her bridesmaids as they were busy finishing off getting ready in the cottage. Normally when entering a room full of bridesmaids, a bride and an array of spectators, family and friends general chaos ensues, today was strangely different and very peaceful despite the number of people getting ready. This was great for us as it allowed plenty of opportunity for happy non stressed faces and time to shoot Jenna with her make up and prep as well as her red dress and shoes complete with matching red soles, yep those ones from Paris.
The red colour theme became even more apparent when we caught up with Rosh and his groomsmen. Their red scarves and gold outfits were a perfect match for the Sari’s of the bridesmaids and Jenna’s dress. Cameras and wedding albums love bright colours and under a blue sky they are even better, today was going to be a good day for photographs.The wedding ceremony was a fusion ceremony taking in both Jenna and Roshan’s religions and beliefs and performed on a small stage at the front of the large barn. Following the wedding ceremony guests were lead outside onto the large lawns of Newton House and during drinks reception we are able to complete the group photographs and also whisk Jenna and Roshan away for a photo session taking in the grounds and scenery of their wedding venue.
Back into the barn for the wedding breakfast and with food provided by one of our favourite outside catering companies and local restaurants (The Aagrah) we could hardly say no to an assortment of starters and mains whilst we backed up the photos and prepared for the evening slideshow. Following sunset and first dance we ended our day with a number of after dark photographs in the grounds before heading home.
