Most of the day was centred around the lovely Shottle Hall, I went a ride over to visit Leonie and her party getting ready, and we to returned there later for the photographs, wedding breakfast and reception.
The clever Kerry from Tineke Floral Designs produced this lovely bouquet.
Then we made the short drive over to Our Lady church in Belper to capture folks arriving for the wedding ceremony itself.
I love this shot of Ben and the guys casually wandering up the road to the church!
The Priest was very welcoming, and was happy to let me spend some time quite close by during the ceremony to get some lovely shots.
We never shoot with flash in church, natural light rules and gives us beautiful effects if used correctly. This approach also ensures that we can work without intruding and causing distractions.
While wandering around Shottle we found ourselves in a stunning dandelion covered field, so stopped off for some yellow themed shots!
Followed by a little pink.
We had to organise a shot to show off Leonie's dress to it fullest, and came up with the shot above.
Then we headed off in search of this hidden away door which I think makes a fantastic backdrop.
The attention to detail was great, and we just had to get a shot of the kids enjoying themselves on the bouncy castle on the lawn.
Another clever lady, Jo from Cakey Wakey produced the cake and dressed the reception room...
Congratulations Leonie & Ben!
