Last week I had a brilliant alternative to sitting in my office on a Thursday afternoon. Instead I headed up the road to photograph Sarah and Peter’s brilliant Shottle Hall wedding.
I first met Sarah and Peter at Sarah’s sister’s wedding in Spain last year. They were in the thick of the celebrations and really enjoyed a good party. So when we first started talking about their Shottle Hall wedding I was really excited about having the opportunity to be a part of it.
With having a few photographers in their family, Sarah and Peter were really clear about how they wanted their wedding photography to look. Few formalities were needed with the focus being on natural photography. Clearly I was on board with that so set about adding my angle to their wedding photography.
In the early afternoon it was great to catch up with many familiar faces, first with Peter and his Groomsmen before moving to the front of Shottle Hall to photograph Sarah’s last preparations.
Their ceremony was a pleasure to photograph, with both Sarah and Peter unable to hold back the emotions, causing them both to cry both tears of joy and laughter.
The surprise sunshine was the icing on the cake, with forecasts leading up to their Shottle Hall wedding suggesting heavy rain throughout the afternoon. Thankfully the clouds held back until the evening.
Here are some previews of my favourite moments from Sarah and Peter’s Shottle Hall wedding. You can also see and share these from my Facebook Page in a few days.
