Hayley & Chris' Wedding At Shottle Hall

More lovely shots from Shottle Hall! This time from a few months back when Hayley & Chris were married there in a lovely civil ceremony in the lounge. Hayley was in mid prep when we arrived upstairs and things were progressing well.

Back downstairs shortly afterward we got the chaps all sorted for their team photograph outside.

One of my favourite things about Shottle is that we can quickly scoot back and forth to see the everything happening, so it was back upstairs to see Hayley getting all finished off before the ceremony.

I never figured out who those GIANT shoes belonged to.

After seeing Hayley arrive at the front, we shuffled quietly to the back to cover the ceremony.

Afterwards it was outside for a few family shots and some nice relaxed photojournalistic photographs too.

I do so love this old barn door, it always makes people wonder quite where they are being taken for photographs when we wander off the beaten track and around the old outbuildings at the hall!

Hayley & Chris wanted a shot with the Shottle Hall deer, and I really loved the low sunlight and long shadows on this different version.

Then we walked up and down the country lane, past the hall entrance, over the fields and just about everywhere to get some lovely shots on the way, what a great couple!

Congratulations Hayley & Chris!

Theresa & Ian's wedding at Shottle Hall

We were over at the lovely Shottle Hall a few months ago, and we were blessed with mostly decent weather! Theresa our bride was getting ready upstairs, right across the hall from where Ian was preparing, so we spent a bit of time scooting back and forth to capture a few details.

Once Ian was all set up and looking good, we got one of my favourite shots of the day before the wedding even started...

During the ceremony we got a few shots safely out of the way at the back, before finding a cosy corner to capture the couple signing the register.

After a few arranged group shots, most of the afternoon was spent capturing a more documentary style of work.

Theresa and Ian were up for a stroll around the gardens and grounds despite the cool weather and fading light, and it sure was worth getting cold for a while - what surroundings!

Luckily our bride and groom were up for braving the cold, and it turns out the fading daylight got us a nice dramatic shot before we packed up and went in :)

Others, of course, had the right idea and never ventured out!

Congratulations Theresa & Ian!

Kerrie & Matt's Wedding At Derby Cathedral & The Cathedral Quarter Hotel

It was a trip to central Derby for the wedding of the lovely Kerrie & Matt in the lovely Cathedral Quarter of the city on a stunning sunny day a few months ago.

We started with a visit to the Cathedral Quarter Hotel where the Bride and her party were getting ready.

As it's name suggests, the hotel is only a stone's throw from Derby Cathedral, so we popped up the road to shoot the chaps arriving before heading back to make sure Kerrie was managing OK without us.

As it happened, they were all fine, so while the ladies finished work on Kerrie's dress I supervised the girls while they dismantled the video camera.

One of the shots I was most looking forward to was when we got to accompany the bridal party on the short walk through the city streets to the Cathedral.

Inside, the Cathedral is quite stunning, and the priest kindly allowed me to borrow the key to the balcony to grab this shot.

Not a half bad pile. I love the sense of scale that the tiny bride and groom give.

After everybody had made their exit, we got a few sneaky shots back inside where the heating was still on :)

One thing I love about city centre weddings are the sheer amount of different areas and backdrops available to us that give us different looking results.

And talking of 'different', the shot below certainly counts :) The bride and groom had organised a shot with their dog, and he couldn't get to see them fast enough!

We spent a little time grabbing a few photojournalistic style shots before dinnertime...

Congratulations Kerrie & Matt!
