Kelham House Wedding

 

The wedding of Lauren Vizza ( Miss Louisiana USA 2018 ) and Matthew Rich took place on 16th April 2019. It was my first time visiting Nottinghamshire. The ceremony took place at Newark Castle and Lauren’s stepfather conducted the service. With a backdrop of a castle wall, it was truly magical!

The morning started with Lauren, her maid of honour & her bridesmaid getting ready at Kelham House; another stunning venue! Lauren did her own makeup and Lauren’s sister (also her maid of honour) helped style her hair. Matthew was also getting ready in a separate room with his twin brother and brother in law to be.

Lauren’s wedding dress was by Town and Country Bridal and her wedding shoes were a gift from a friend back when she was competing at Miss America in 2013. She looked incredible!

Their wedding ceremony was intimate with only their closest family members. They’ll be having a larger reception party back home with their friends. When I asked Lauren why she came to England for her wedding, she replied, “We chose England and the Newark area in particular because Matt’s mother grew up there and her whole family still lives in the area. There are childhood photos of Matt, his mother and siblings at Newark Castle”. The ceremony was beautiful & emotional!

I couldn’t wait to get started on their couple photos! Some of the images from their day are below.
