Steph & Alex got married on the 30th September 2017. I joined Steph and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Hampton by Hilton in Sheffield a short stroll away from their very cool wedding venue – The Hide. There was a hive of activity in the hotel with hair and make-up in full swing. We did just about have time to pop over to The Hide for some quick snaps with the campervan, courtesy of VintageVolksweddings before heading to the Knowle Top Chapel in Stannington where the ceremony was to take place.
I loved this wedding ceremony, this church has such a lovely light open feel to it and I was able to wander around quite a bit capturing both Steph & Alex and their guests. After the service we managed to dodge some rain showers over the road in the park area. I think we timed it quite well actually as when we got back into the campervan the rain had really started! In fact I think Steph and Alex were quite reluctant to get out of it when me and Richard – of VintageVolksweddings suggested it would be a good idea to get out for a pic with the Pete McKee artwork on the side of Fagan’s Pub – I’m pleased we did though I love these.
Then onto The Hide – incredibly decked out by this couple. The rest of the day was totally chilled, filled with laughter, good food and good times!
Possibly the most laid-back and happy (see pics, so many smiles and giggles!) couple you could meet. Nicola & Jonathan got married on the 23rd September 2017 at the iconic Crucible Theatre in Sheffield – having been here only weeks beforehand I was delighted to be returning.
My day started at St Paul’s Mecure Hotel Sheffield, where Nicola and her many bridesmaids were getting ready. I was also able to pop downstairs to see all the hard work that had gone into decking out the reception room. After a stint with the girls I headed to the theatre and found Jonathan and his best men greeting guests in the bar & awaiting the arrival of the bride. The ceremony had so much giggling and happy tears – I loved capturing all these little moments and the guests watching on.
After the ceremony Nicola, Jonathan and I headed over to the neighbouring Lyceum Theatre – as always I was blown away by the beauty and grandeur of this place and enjoyed creating the moody pictures of the two of them. Then back to the guests for group shots and confetti before heading back over to St Pauls. Once here guests were able to play on all the amazing arcade games that Nicola’s dad owns – just brilliant – in fact the guests were pretty reluctant to go into the wedding breakfast as they were having so much fun! Speeches concluded the wedding breakfast and we headed into the winter gardens just as the light was beginning to fade. Then onto the sparkler action as guests lined the steps.
I also worked with videographer Eric from Bigger Boat Film on this day who was great to work with, & I’m sure captured this day beautifully.
