A beautifully festive Christmas Wedding at Kelham House

Today I am thrilled to share a beautifully festive Christmas Wedding at Kelham House.

Amy and Nick met when their respective paragliding clubs were merged, so bonded over an enthusiasm for the same sport, and their love story went from there.

Images of this seasonal day were captured by Sarah at Mirror Imaging Photography.

Mirror Imaging Photography is run by Sarah Illingworth, a fine art photographer.

Mirror Imaging is based centrally to Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield and Newark, and cover all areas of Nottinghamshire, across the UK and abroad.

Working in an elegant and editorial style, she says of her work…

“One of the reasons I first picked up a camera was to help positively change the way people (and particularly women) saw themselves and it still holds true today, and for every wedding and portrait I capture.”

“It is a combination of clean, beautiful photography and this level of empathy and understanding that is most often cited by clients as the reason they choose Mirror Imaging.”

“I strive to capture the best of everyone and everything, developing a simply beautiful style that won’t date or go out of fashion.”


I hand over to Sarah to share her recollections of the couples day…


“Amy & Nick were married this month at Burton Joyce Community Church, with their wintry wedding reception at Kelham House.”

“The day had a subtle Christmassy feel, with the bridesmaids in beautiful red dresses and red roses, berries and foliage in the bouquets by Jacaranda with the Bride describing her day as traditional.”

“The bride was dropped at church in the couples own ribboned car, and the groom drove them from the church to reception in same car.”

“The bride’s reverend uncle conducted most of the beautiful ceremony, giving it a more meaningful tone before the team at Kelham House greeted everyone with drinks and canapés which were enjoyed by the roaring log fire.”

“A family friend made the cakes, which were three separate fruit cakes with iced decoration to match the bride’s bouquet, and the table names, were places the couple had travelled, (they loved to travel together a lot).



Thank you so much to Sarah for sharing this stunning Christmas Wedding.

The glow of the Christmas lights and the the styling vibrant with seasonal berry colours give the day a lovely cosy warm feel.

A magical celebration of love….
