Sheffield Town Hall and Rutland Hotel Wedding

Most relaxed wedding ceremony ever!  This is the story of Kay and Lynval’s wedding day, starting out with the ceremony in the Sheffield Town Hall and then moving across town to the Rutland Hotel in Broomhill.

Actually, my day began at Kay’s house where we had a reasonably relaxed morning getting ready.  The music was pumping, hair was extending, make-up was, erm, being applied.  Amongst the highlights of the morning for me was getting to meet Michelle who was pulling a triple shift as hairdresser, evening reception guest and supplier of a sweetie wheel (look for Sugar Rush on Facebook).

Clumber Park Hotel Wedding

A small wedding does not mean an underwhelming wedding.  Andrew and Madeleine  got married at the Clumber Park Hotel in Sherwood Forrest in a relatively cosy ceremony surrounded by only their closest family and friends.

By the time their wedding day came around, Andy and Mandy were already well acquainted with the business end of my cameras, having had an engagement photos shoot at Linacre Reservoir back in March of this year.  Thanks to that practice session they were much more relaxed around me and were able to get on with worrying about getting married instead.

Padley Gorge Engagement Photo Shoot

Victoria and Kelso are getting married next May with your truly going along as their official photographer for the proceedings.  At this point I am going to stay cool whilst I nonchalantly mention that the wedding will be in Italy, to say I am looking forward to that is a huge understatement.

St Peter’s Church, Letwell & Travellers Rest, Brookhouse Wedding

To fully appreciate what impressed me at Stephanie & Allen’s wedding, you need a little context first.  St Peter’s Church, Letwell is about 10 minutes by car from The Travellers Rest, Brookhouse.  That’s 10 minutes of open country roads where you are likely to average 50 miles per hour.

Why am I telling you this?  Well, Stephanie and Allen got married at St Peter’s Church, and then made their way over to The Travellers Rest for their reception.  What is worth noting is how the newlyweds went from church to reception….

Nottingham Council House, George’s Kitchen & Basford Hall Wedding

From the first time I met Wendy & Keith at Basford Hall I knew this was going to be one to remember.  They talked me through their plans for a fish and chip dinner at George’s Great British Kitchen, a premium chippy in the centre of Nottingham, and then all the fun twists they had incorporated into the evening reception at Basford Hall.  They even offered me a ride in the bridal car into town which was particularly useful as it saved me having to find parking in Nottingham City Centre on a busy Friday afternoon.
