Michael & Nicola | Mother of God Church & Thornbridge Hall | Wedding

My day started with Nicola’s family at the beautifully converted Albertine Barn in a remote Derbyshire valley.  I was welcomed by Pauline, Nicola’s mum who opened the door and led me up to Nicola who was having her hair done.  The bridal party were hugely hospitable and did a great job of looking after me whilst I was with them (sausage sandwiches for all!) After photographing Nicola’s beautiful dress I left the barn and drove to Mother Of God Church in Sheffield. This impressive and prominent Catholic church stands on one of Sheffield’s arterial routes and was a perfect choice of venue for Michael and Nicola’s beautiful ceremony.

Michael and Nicola left the church to a incredible covering of confetti from their 180 guests. The bride and groom, their families and all of the guests then made their way to the reception at the breath-taking thornbridge hall  in Derbyshire.  This private, family home was the perfect setting for their wedding and the gardens were idyllic for the drinks reception and lawn games which was flooded with sunlight on one of July’s hottest days. The styling in the Carriage House was sublime and food provided by the Larkspur St. James catering team was superb.

Laura & Tim | Whirlowbrook Hall | Engagement Shoot

I met a super couple called Laura and Tim last weekend in the grounds of Whirlowbrook Hall in Sheffield. We had originally planned to meet on the Saturday but the weather was foul so we rescheduled for the Sunday – a good move because the weather completely cleared up. We jumped a few gates, crossed through some fields and walked around the woods and grounds which surround the Hall. It was great to get to know the couple and their cute cocker spaniel and I can’t wait to photograph their up and coming wedding at the stunning Hassop Hall.. its going to be great!
