A stark contrast in weather from the previous day and wedding but when life gives you lemons you… anyway, it was fun nipping between the bridal party and the groomsmen who were only a few minutes apart between the Sophie’s parents family home and the newly refurbished Bridge Inn for the boys. The weather was typical inclemently British and went from downpours to drizzle to some sunshine, thankfully though this was only short lived while I was shooting the getting ready shots. It passed in time for Sophie arriving at the church with her father, both looking very proud, excited and perhaps just a tad nervous. The wedding ceremony held at All Saints Church in Curbar was delightful, a fantastic delivery from the vicar and some unbelievably breathtaking singing from one of the bridesmaids really did give that hair on the back of the neck effect. You couldn’t have wished for anything nicer for a lovely couple.
After the ceremony everyone lined up for one of the biggest confetti lines I have photographed yet, lots of petals later we took off in the car to Curbar Edge for some scenic images which we had already shot on Andrew and Sophie’s engagement shoot a couple of months prior. It was a tad windier and not quite as sunny this time but I think that it added to the mood creating some dramatic images.
Back to The Maynard in Grindleford for the formal photos and the wedding reception which went down really well, lots of people enjoying good food, great speeches and of course the odd bubble or two! The evening carried into the cutting of the delicious fresh looking cake and onto the first dance watched over by lots of guests and to the melody of the live band.
Have a look through a small selection of some of the images from the day…
