Lee and Chrissie's Nottingham Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Lee and Chrissies wedding in Beeston Parish Church and then Clumber Park Spa. It was a lovely winters day in December and thankfully the rain held off. This is an eight minute slideshow that tells the story of their day with just a few of the hundreds of pictures that they recieved.

Lee and Chrissie were delighted with the results simply saying..... "These photos are Amazing, we LOVE the photos! can't wait to see the album."

Clumber Park Hotel & Spa is one of Nottinghamshire’s premier venue for your wedding celebrations. Clumber Park is over 3,800 acres (15 km²) in extent, including woods, open heath and rolling farmland. It contains a superb, serpentine lake covering 87 acres (352,000 m²), and the longest double avenue of lime trees in Europe (pictured). The avenue extends over three miles (5 km), and was created by the 5th Duke of Newcastle in the 19th Century. The Park was originally left to the people of Worksop by the late Duke of Newcastle but the National Trust bought it in 1946.[3] Some of the park's estate was subsequently closed to the public. There is vehicle access for the areas that are open to the public, and the parking in the central area has a charge (free for members of National Trust).[4] On the way to the main park ing area there is also has a cricket pitch with a thatched roof pavilion in the style of a cottage clad in rustic split logs. Along the road side are large open areas to park and picnic.
The Gothic revival chapel at Clumber is an excellent place for long walks and has several miles of paths and cycle tracks surrounding the lake. The park has a range of bicycles available for hire including tandems and adult tricycles from an estate building located by the main car park adjacent to the chapel and the Visitors center in the old stable block, were a range of facilities are located. Part of the block house a visitor display on the history of the park, the usual National Trust Shop and Restrauant, and toilets. Off the main lime tree avenue are camping facilities.

Route 6 of the National Cycle Network passes through the park linking it to Sherwood Forest and Sherwood Pines with only a few road crossings necessary.
