This gorgeous couple met when Greg was studying in the USA. It was love at first sight and when the time came to decide where in the world they should settle, they decided on coming back to where Greg was born in Yorkshire, UK. They set about planning their dream wedding at Hazel Gap Barn, Nottinghamshire, to include traditions from both sides of the Atlantic. They wrote each other letters to read on the morning of the wedding, had a steak BBQ for their meal and toasted smores over open fires in the evening. The weather was just perfect on the day, one of those beautiful warm September days we occasionally get in England, and it ended with a gorgeous sunset. There was lots of fun and dancing throughout the night and even a cake fight between Greg and Chaunsey. It was an amazing wedding day and I loved capturing it. I don't need to say anything else, you can just see the fun, how everyone was sharing in their happiness and what a perfect day it was from the photos.
Emma and Gareth's wedding day was as Yorkshire as I could have been. All the wedding guests met for pre-wedding drinks at a very Yorkshire pub close to Bradfield Chuch. The church, even though it is is Gods own county (Yorkshire), overlooks the the gorgeous Derbyshire Peak District. Thankfully it was only a short walk from the pub to the church where Emma and Gareth where married on a beautiful June day last year. A fabulous vintage VW took them from the church to the reception at Cubley Hall, Penistone via a short stop off for photos in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. This was deliberate, so that as soon as they got to the venue, they could just relax and party with their friends and family. And, party they did! There was lots of fun, laughter, singing and crazy dancing well in to the night. The photos definately show that everyone had a "reight" good time at this very Yorkshire wedding!
These two definitely had one of the best days weather for their wedding day. It was late March and I kid you not it was pushing the mid twenties outside. Aston Hall in Sheffield is one of my favourite venues. Not only is it stunning inside but also has the most beautiful grounds for photography with blossom trees blooming at this time of year. It was a very emotional day, with lots of laughter and happy tears. One of the highlights of the day was the alternative "cake". Ben doesn't have a sweet tooth, so as well as the traditional wedding cake, they had a pork pie cake! It was a huge hit with everyone, especially Ben.
