Weddings at Cubley Hall in Penistone are some of my favourites. I've shot there a lot over the past couple of years and it's always such a great venue. The staff are so very lovely, the food is amazing and I just adore the country feel of the venue.
Emma and Gareth met whilst working at Hillsborough Leisure centre as life guards and went out for quite a few meals and drinks before officially becoming an item. Gareth proposed after asking Emma's Dads blessing on hoilday in Turkey with her family. He proposed on the bridge of a little river after a meal at their favorite restaurant in Turkey. Emma said she was totally surprised, as was her mum and brother, who also had no idea it was about to happen!
Just over a year later, Emma and Gareth started their wedding with a religious ceremony at St.Nicholas Church in Bradfield on the edge of the beautiful Peak District. It was o beautiful with the sun shining and everyone in good spirits. Their very traditional wedding ceremony at the church was followed by a fun and awesome wedding reception at Cubley Hall where everyone was dancing and singing well into the night!
Emma and Gareth's favorite part of the day was all of it! Emma said that spending the day with their nearest and dearest was what made their wedding day amazing and special!
I enjoyed photographing their wedding so much! Emma and Gareth are warmest and loveliest couple ever and they have the best family and friends that helped them celebrate their day in true Yorkshire style!
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Kirkham! Wishing you both a long and happy marriage together!
