Gemma + Gary

First thing to mention about this wedding is that Gemma & Gary are possibly two of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. From the first moment I met them right up until the day, their warmth and friendliness was immeasurable! Gemma also wins the award for most excited bride-to-be I’ve met ;) The wedding took place on the 20th August 2016. I joined Gemma at her Mum’s house where she was getting ready with her bridesmaids and her beloved nephew Fin :) There was a lot of activity and excitement in the house especially when the gorgeous wedding flowers arrived – always lovely to catch up (briefly) with Tracey from Campbells Flowers. After my stint at the house I jumped in the car to beat everyone to St Marie’s Cathedral in Sheffield. The blokes seemed pretty organised when I got there dutifully handing out order of services and ushering guests in. When Gemma arrived and all the guests were seated an emotional yet happy service ensued. Afterwards we headed to the reception venue – Halifax Hall – and it was absolutely chucking it down by this point! Everybody made a dash inside and enjoyed welcome drinks and canapes. Fortunately Halifax Hall has a lovely covered area outside where we were able to do a lot of the group shots. After the meal, the rain having stopped, we headed back outside and braved the soggy grass for some shots of the newly-weds. I felt so welcome on this wedding day and really enjoyed documenting this lovely couple and their equally lovely family and friends :) x
