Fern and Jon’s Derbyshire Wedding Previews

I’m avoiding looking out of the window on this grey and miserable bank holiday and instead I’d much rather share some of my favourites from Fern and Jon’s intimate wedding at The Old Hall Hotel in Buxton, Derbyshire.

I’ve never any complaints taking the scenic drive north to Buxton, a small town in the high peaks that’s often a weekend retreat for those living in the surrounding cities of Manchester, Sheffield and Derby. So it was clear why Fern and Jon had chosen to go to Buxton from their home in Staffordshire for their wedding at the highly rated Old Hall Hotel.

I spent a few hours with them starting with Fern preparations through to afternoon tea.

Here’s a preview of some of my favourite moments of which you can also see and share on my Facebook page.

Nicky and Alex’s Wedding Previews

Last weekend I photographed Nicky and Alex’s wedding at Morley Hayes in Derbyshire and having known them for some time now it was an occasion I was looking forward to be being a part of.

After spending a little bit of time with Alex and his Groomsmen at the bar I headed over to Morley Hayes Hotel to photograph Nicky’s preparations. Joined by her daughter Paige, Flower Girl, Paige Boy and three Bridesmaids it was a room full of energy and enjoyment.

I’ll be sharing more details and photos from Nicky and Alex’s wedding in the coming weeks but for now here’s a preview of some of my favourite images of which you can also see and share on my Facebook page.

Laura and Ben’s New Year’s Eve Wedding at The Hillbark Hotel

The end of 2015 was simply brilliant as was the start of 2016, with Laura and Ben’s New Year’s Eve wedding at the Hillbark Hotel in Wirral ensuring that both years would be ones to remember.

There was plenty to be celebrated before Laura and Ben welcomed in 2016 with the familiar 10-second countdown and the joyous singing of Auld Lang Syne with a beautifully styled reception at the Hillbark Hotel, taking full advantage of their exclusivity with the evening being hosted in the several banqueting rooms and Marquee of the Tudor venue.

Laura prepared for the wedding at her families home in Wirral, with the highlights being the amazing reactions of her close friends and family at seeing Laura in her wedding dress for the first time.

It was then a short trip to the church for Laura and Ben’s ceremony before continuing their day at the Hillbark Hotel.

Rachel and Haydn’s candlelit wedding in Staffordshire

This intimate candlelit wedding of Rachel and Haydn’s in Staffordshire is next up on the blog with plenty of beautiful moments to be shared here and on my Facebook page.

Rachel and Haydn’s wedding celebrations brought them North from their home in Hampshire to Castle Hill House on the Tutbury Castle estate in Staffordshire, with friends and family also making their way from all around the UK.

With all of the wedding party staying at Castle Hill House the atmosphere was buzzing on arrival with celebrations in the festive season already well underway.

The dark and moody skies that cascaded down onto the town of Tutbury only added to the atmosphere as Rachel and Haydn exchanged their vows within the candlelit St Mary’s Church.

Emma and Gary’s Peak Edge Hotel Wedding

Last few weddings from 2015 coming to the blog in the next few days, starting with Emma and Gary’s festive wedding at The Peak Edge Hotel in Derbyshire.

Having relocated to Derbyshire from Devon in late 2014, Emma and Gary’s exploration of the Peak District started with an Engagement Shoot in the high peaks so it was great to continue that story on a cold and windy day just down the road.

My morning started at Emma’s parents home where she was getting ready with her family before driving over the dales for her and Gary’s ceremony and reception at the Peak Edge Hotel.
