Ciara + Dale got married on the 19th July 2018. I’ve met this pair and their beautiful daughter Keeva and poodle Bridie before, so I knew this was going to be a lovely laid-back affair. I joined Ciara & her family & close friends getting ready at home. I think Keeva & Bridie in particular were enjoying all the attention and rightly so they definitely both looked the part on this day, with Keeva in her beautiful princess dress and Bridie with her special wedding day grooming. I was at the house just long enough to capture Ciara donning her stunning gown, it was absolutely perfect for her and she looked incredible.
Then onto Sheffield Town Hall to meet with Dale busily (and a little nervously) awaiting the arrival of Ciara. Once Ciara arrived, I was able to capture a few shots of Ciara & Keeva before the ceremony started. The service was upstairs in the Town Hall – What a very beautiful light space this is to photograph in, I loved it.
After the service we took some group shots, and of course Bridie arrived with her veil on – as most people that read my blog will know I am a big dog fan, so if there is one at a wedding and it has a veil on then I’m going to very happy!
Before heading to the reception venue, myself, Ciara & Dale and videographer Andrew of Tregoning Weddings had a short walk through the Peace Gardens and Winter Gardens to get some shots of the happy twosome on their own.
Afterwards everybody headed to Tamper for the continuing laid-back celebration of these two officially tieing the knot! Huge love to all four of you xx
Rachel + Luke got married on the 14th July 2018. Like most of the couples I have the pleasure of photographing, this pair are really laid-back and happy… refer to pics!!
The day started at Rachel’s parents house where hair and make-up were in full swing. I always enjoy seeing the dress and all the wedding apparel for the first time, and was delighted to see the Jimmy Choo shoes, what is not to love about a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes, and did I mention they had feathery pom-poms!!
After all the excitement of the bridal preparations and the grand reveal to Dad I headed over to Ecclesfield Church. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph at this church several times over the years, it’s really beautiful inside and the light is always gorgeous.
Rachel arrived and was greeted by the cutest 3 flower girls, ready to walk down the aisle. The service was filled with love and a lot of laughter – Rachel is one of the most giggliest brides I have had the pleasure of photographing and for this I love her dearly! I think she gets it from her lovely parents as I saw them giggling throughout the service too
Onto the wedding ceremony afterwards which was Firth Court – part of Sheffield University – where Rachel graduated from and has previously graced that gorgeous entranceway. The room in which the wedding breakfast was served looked incredible and guests enjoyed a delicious meal and entertaining speeches.
The evening continued in the same laid-back fashion it started in, most couple’s I meet tell me they just want everybody to have a good time, I’m pretty sure this is what these guys would have wished for, and I think the pictures prove they did! Lot of love to both of you xx
