Keeping everyone safe

As per the latest government regulations, see our facilities available and extra measures we’re taking so you can enjoy your visit.

Live in Nottingham? We encourage everyone to walk or cycle to the park rather than by car, where possible, as this not only helps the environment, though keeps roads clear for the emergency services & keyworkers. All ways we can keep each other & the park safe.

Behind the scenes

Like us at Wollaton Hall, many wedding suppliers in the industry are committed to making all brides & grooms feel wonderful on their wedding day.

In April, we were asked to host a special wedding styled shoot at Wollaton Hall to showcase the bride & groom parties that love wearing their glasses and want to retain their own appearance on their big day.

Introducing the idea

As many people wear glasses as a standard it seems clear that everyone should feel the same level of comfort on their wedding day, and feel as special & beautiful as they should without needing to change their appearance.

Certainly every bride & groom deserve to look & feel like themselves, without having to wear contacts or struggle with difficult eyesight.

The collaboration

A vision that originated from Lowri Moore, following her published book about a glasses wearing princess called ‘Princess Rose & the Golden Glasses’, is inspiring local wedding suppliers to develop the wedding industry and help break norms and stereotypes of how wedding parties should look & feel on their big day.

Ivory White Bridal along with other wedding suppliers, including photographer Sophie May, were keen to work with Lowri Moore and develop a styled shoot at Wollaton Hall.

As one of our aims at Wollaton Hall is to ensure all brides & grooms feel special at our venue, when we were approached to collaborate on the styled shoot, we were thrilled to be involved. It was wonderful to be able to capture the essence of a wedding party, featuring visionary Lowri Moore as a bridesmaid, wearing her own glasses.

Pleasant surprise

Much like the big day, you can never guaranty the weather and on this occasion we got very lucky with the arrival of beautiful light snow.

As it fell mid-shoot, the photographer was able to capture this breathtaking shot of the styled bride with light snow against the backdrop of the Hall’s beautiful architecture.
