Canada and England unite in an amazing autumn wedding at the prestigious Colwick Hall one of Nottinghamshire’s finest wedding venues. The Cugini family made the long journey over from Canada for their daughters wedding to Nottingham native Charles, they met at Colwick hall a few years previous after Julia who is a professional singer was booked for and event at the Hall by Charles mother, fate intervened and few years later they were married. Stories like this rarely happen but so nice to be part of them when then do…..

An email i received from Julia’s mum on her return to Canada

Good morning Karl, I just wanted to thank you for the most beautiful photos of Julia & Charles Wedding. Julia just sent us the link to their pictures and we were left breathless…you truly captured the essence of the day as well as their love – you were like a ghost- floating through the guests yet so very unassuming… With Julia moving to England it was a very emotional day for our family knowing that our time together would be brief- thank you for the tender shots of our family and your sensitivity to those very special moments…We LOVED all of the sequences and how you worked so well with natures light at the perfect times of the day- such an Artist ! We wish you continued success and thank you again.
