Congratulations to Lauren and Kieran who got married on Saturday the 27th April 2019 at Shottle Hall in Derbyshire. It was a beautiful and wonderful day, shared with their closest family and friends, and it was an absolute honour to be their wedding photographer and spend the day with them! This is their wedding photography preview blog:
How Did They Meet?
Lauren and Kieran are the CUTEST couple I have probably ever met! You could really feel just how much their wedding day meant to them both.
Lauren explains how they first met: “Kieran and I met at school. We had the same friendship group and we all used to meet up after school, as you do when you’re fifteen. Kieran asked me to be his girlfriend just before our school prom in 2009. I said yes! We were prom dates and we’ve been together since! We then brought our first house when we were 20 years old”
The Proposal Story:
“Kieran proposed to me on the 27th October 2016, and I was pregnant with Rueben at the time. We went for dinner at Marco Pierre White’s in Nottingham. We had had a lovely meal, and then a plate was brought out with pudding which read ‘Will You Marry Me’ in chocolate sauce!”
Their Wedding Planning Journey:
“Wedding planning has been a challenge with balancing work and family life! haha! My advice to other couples getting married is to start earlier! The date comes around way too fast!”
Shottle Hall is exclusive country house wedding venue located close to Derby in the heart of the Peak District – Perfect for weddings and celebrations. You can choose to use either side of the venue; either get married outside the pagoda and use the permanent starlit marquee for your reception, or utilise the beautiful original house and grounds with the grand ballroom, as Kieran and Lauren did. It’s a wonderful relaxed venue with attentive staff and great food too! It’s one of my favourite Derby wedding venues!
Congratulations again Mr and Mrs Bilkhu-Smith. It was a pleasure to have been asked to have been asked to be your wedding photographer at Shottle Hall. I wish your lovely little family all the happiness in the world!
