Jodie & Toni’s Hillsborough Arena Wedding

Photographing weddings can be a lonely life.  Meet a bunch of strangers, share an amazing day with them, get to know them, leave and start again at the next wedding.  So it’s a real treat when I get to a wedding and already know half the family.

That’s what Jodie and Toni’s wedding was like for me.  Jodie had been a bridesmaid some years earlier at her cousin Lisa’s wedding at Wortley Hall.  Even at Lisa’s wedding I had met most of the family at her brother Matt’s wedding at Kenwood Hall earlier that same year.  So although a few years had passed it felt like a reunion, which is really special.

Anyway enough about the past, because this blog is about Jodie and her new bride Toni, and their wedding which took us Sheffield Town Hall and then over to Hillsborough Arena.

What I didn’t know at the time was that this would be my last wedding for some time.  It was the last weekend before the UK went into Covid-19 lockdown.  Yet another thing that makes this a special memory for me.  The threat of the Coronavirus was a mere undercurrent on the day, I think the severity of the outbreak hadn’t quite landed with us yet, so plenty of hugs and handshakes going around.  

Despite impending pandemics and quarantines the day was a great success.  There was a chilled vibe throughout, and a great party atmosphere to close it out.

Shout out to Alex, my second photographer on the day, who took at least a couple of the snaps you’ll see shortly.
