2019 was yet another interesting and varied year for your Nottingham wedding photographer, Paul Eyre Images. Begining with Shani & Joe’s awesome Rock & Roll wedding back in March, then off to Hertfordshire for Nealesh & Reshma’s Hindu wedding in April and Michelle & Leigh’s Viking-themed wedding at the family farm.
There has been blistering sunshine, torrential rain, hail, fog, gailforce winds, you name it…but we survived and made memories from it!
It has been a pleasure to visit new venues, such as Hogarth’s Hotel, Solihull, The Walled Garden at Beeston, Haarlem Mill in Derbyshire and Kelham Hall at Newark. Re-visiting regular venues such as Priesthouse by the River , Horsley Lodge and Donington Park Farmhouse.
In November, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had been nominated for The English Wedding Awards ‘Wedding Photographer Of The Year’. Imagine my delight at winning the East Midlands category, with some very formidable competiton. Therefore I would like to thank all the awesome suppliers and clients who voted for me and made this happen.
From the thousands of images captured last year, here are few that really captured the essence of an awesome wedding! Click on the image below and enjoy 2019 from behind the lens…
It has been great to meet many more talented suppliers, all with the common goal of giving our couples the very best. Finally, thanks to my fantastic second shooters for 2019…Christian, Ian and Ania – you guys rocked!

Situated in 26 acres of beautiful, scenic grounds is the stunning new Donington Hall wedding venue
In October 2016, I had the privilege of photographing one of the first weddings to take place at the stunning new Donington Hall wedding venue. The day began at the Priest House, which is Donington Hall’s sister venue. With it’s beautiful river side location, the Priest House is the perfect place for couples to enjoy a relaxing stay before and after the wedding. It was also an ideal location for my wonderful couple to start their day! With just a very short drive along the tree-lined lane in this quiet corner of Leicestershire, we arrived at the stunning 18th century Hall. As I entered through the grand doorway, I paused to read the historic scriptures above, which detail the history of this grand building. The calm ambiance inside resonated throughout the grand rooms, with high ceilings and many original features.
Our bride made her arrival and was able to make her way to the chapel along the south-facing frontage of the house, giving me some epic shots! Inside the chapel, the sun was streaming in through the colourful stained-glass windows. The guests took their seats as the groom waited patiently (nervously!) for his beautiful bride’s grand entrance. The light streaming into the stunning chapel made for superb photographs and also gave the civil ceremony a church-like feel.
Following the ceremony, our happy couple exited the chapel into the glorious sunshine that bathed the front of the house. Whilst guests mingled in the bar area, we made use of the stunning scenery as a backdrop for family photos. We also made good use of the time before food was served to create many dramatic, epic shots and fully utilised the fabulous surroundings!
Enjoy this wonderful collection of real wedding images from the stunning Donington Hall wedding venue!
