Hartington Hall is usually best known these days for being a YHA. However, it's also a lovely wedding venue with plenty of space for guest to stay and enjoy the Peak District while attending weddings. Just down the hill is the church where Emily and Chris said their vows. Luckily the rain held off for them to trek back up the hill to the hall for a drinks reception and the wedding breakfast. After the rain stopped, speeches were held outdoors and we found time to catch a few photos of the bride and groom on their own as seen here.
Horsley Lodge is nestled away not far from Derby and was the perfect venue for Jon and Stacey. From getting ready photos all to way to the first dance. Even though it was a windy day, we grabbed plenty of family photos along with a photo walk for just the Bride and Groom. One of my favourite photos though as to be from the first dance. To see a selection of my favourites, view the slideshow below.
Shottle Hall is gorgeous no matter what time of year. It especially looked fab with the decor Hazel and Mike chose. Which was a woodland creature theme with some Super Mario thrown in for good measure. If you know me well, you'll know that I can't resist gaming and geeky themes. So I fell in love with the cupcakes. Oh and Hazel's shoes were the bomb. Pun intended. We took advantage of the early sunset to grab some romantic shots and later pulled everyone outside for a sparkler exit. Take a peek for yourself here...
Outside of Chesterfield stands the Peak Edge Hotel Wedding venue. Chosen by Mal and Christine to say their wedding vows and celebrate with those closest to them. The Brides couldn't have been happier to finally marry each other. After making many cakes for other couples, Christine decided to make their own cake too. You can tell it took a lot of patience and was well worth it. Although it was raining, we found some time to take a few family photos in the fog before it started pouring. Along with some indoor shots of the Brides alone. See some of my favourites here:
Ripley Derbyshire sets the scene for Sarah and Mike's wedding at Lumb Farm. Complete with spring flowers and donkeys. After getting ready, the entire day was spent at the venue with family and friends. Pink was the colour scheme and it couldn't have been a better pick for such a lovely spring day. To see the picture perfect day, check out the slideshow below.
The day started out getting ready at the Bride's family home in Loscoe Derbyshire before heading to Church for the ceremony. Due to the Groom's love of James Bond films, she arrived in an Aston Martin. Rianne's mother sang beautifully during the ceremony and everyone celebrated the newlyweds by throwing confetti to see them off. The remainder of the day was spent at Makeney Hall where we took a walk through the beautiful garden for some photos. The best part was the big finale during the first dance. James and Rianne surprised everyone with a Bond themed dance. It was a great show stopper. As seen in the slideshow here...
