Over the last couple of years we have exhibited and photographed several weddings at Bestwood Lodge Hotel, Nottingham.
The hotel is a beautiful old House and formerly a Victorian Hunting Lodge, built in 1865 and set in 700 acres of parkland. It combines the elegance and beauty of a small stately home with all the comforts & conveniences expected of a top hotel.
The Lodge itself is set in beautiful grounds and if you are looking for nice wedding pictures and wedding photographer in Nottingham. It is also right on the doorstep of Bestwood Country Park!!
The Hotel staff work hard to give you a wedding to love and there are those 'behind the scenes' staff who cannot do enough for you to make sure your day goes without a hitch. I can say this as a few years ago we were married at Bestwood Lodge Hotel ourselves!!
The photography opportunities are great. Inside there is the Chapel which has a wonderful gothic, 'church-like' feeling. The upper balcony has some good views of guests below and there is the Grand Fireplace which will make a fabulous backdrop, especially if the fire is lit. If you venture through the restaurant there is little outside area with a beautiful rose garden and what looks like a small maze. This is just perfect for that romantic evening stroll before perhaps, sitting on the well positioned bench, overlooking the beautiful floral gardens.
Outside the Main Ballroom is a fabulous patio area. This patio opens up right in to Bestwood Country Park and has some brilliant views and walks. If you were to exit the patio area onto the lawns then you can become lost in the abundance of greenery, where we feel is the best place for photography, and it is ideal for getting the bride and groom away from their guests for a few creatively crafted images. Hidden away are some lovely shaded area, with steps, a fountain and plenty of ideas for creating images for newlyweds.
