Lynsey & Jamie's Wedding at Sheffield & Hassop Hall

For Lynsey & Jamie's wedding I got the chance for a ride up to the fab city of Sheffield. I spent a ton of time in Sheffield back when I was young and trendy, but hardly ever get to visit these days, so this was a treat.

First stop was at the luxurious Kenwood Hall where Lynsey and the girls were in the middle of the preparations. It was lovely to see our friend Tina from Beau Hair on the case - surely one of the best bridal hairdressers we've met.

This is not the finished look.

We got across town to see the guys arriving and being fussed over :) The car window reads 'Groom In Transit!"

I insisted Jamie keep his shades on for a few 'looking cool shots' in front of the magnificent St John's Church, in the Ranmoor area of Sheffield.

After we got a few shots and I'd briefed the ushers about the plan for after the ceremony, we spent some time grabbing some more photojournalistic style shots.

As I said, St John's Church is truly magnificent, and has the honour of possessing THE MOST precarious and inaccessible balcony I have EVER attempted to shoot from. Being fair, there's no public access, it's behind a locked door, I asked for access, they warned me against it, I insisted, then insisted again, and got what I deserved I guess.

But I also got THIS shot...

I was soon back at ground level...

I wanted to try to show the imposing scale of the church, so sitting down with the wide angle lens on did the trick very nicely.

On the way across the moorland of the Derbyshire Dales to Hassop Hall, we made time for a stop off and a quick photowalk around a random field in the middle of nowhere!

Then it was Hassop Hall time! One of my favourite venues, and, being a bit of a ride away, not a place I get to visit too regularly. Another treat!

We split our time between a photowalk or two, and some casual candid shots to show the atmosphere of the day.

I've shown off the shot below a couple of times already, and I'll say the same thing again - THAT is how you display a wedding cake. Well done Hassop Hall.

Congratulations Lynsey & Jamie!

Anne & Stuart's wedding at the Cathedral Quarter Hotel, Derby

It's safe to say that the Cathedral Quarter Hotel in Derby has to be one of my favourite city-chic style wedding venues, so I was quite happy to be spending the day with Anne and Stuart and their families at their wedding back in the summer.

Anne was getting ready in the split-level apartment upstairs, so it was an easy wander up to get some 'before' shots.

We had to get a shot of Stuart by the stylish main door.

Then back upstairs to see the finishing touches!

Coverage during the ceremony was nice and discreet, shooting from the back with a good wide angle lens to really capture the character of the ceremony room.

I loved the way the light bounced around and almost spotlit the couple while they signed the registers. Though it was a tougher job to make sure that flower in the windowsill didn't shoot up from Stuart's head for the official shot :)

The couple's daughters were their bridesmaids, so we paid special attention to getting some ace shots of them, both in a photojournalistic style, and as a family later on...

I even managed to catch Stuart showing his creative side :)

The one thing I love more than anything about the Cathedral Quarter Hotel is that our photowalks are unique. To be able to get shots around the sumptuous surroundings of the hotel and then within a few minutes be able to explore in areas like the one above is just amazing!

After a few family shots like the one above, we sent the girls back to relax while I worked Anne and Stuart a bit harder on the urban stage of our photowalk...

Finally arriving back at the hotel to make the most of the amazing interiors.

Congratulations Anne & Stuart!
