Peter and Sue’s wedding

Peter and Sue
Upper House, Hayfield wedding photography


Peter and Sue had an extremely informal and beautifully intimate wedding gathering at Upper House in Hayfield. This was now my second mid-week wedding at Upper House and true to form it couldn’t really have gone any better at this amazing venue way out in the sticks right at the foot of Kinder Scout! It wasn’t a full day wedding but instead a very relaxed mid day meet up for the small number of close friends and family who all gathered together, including Peter and Sue, for lunch in the splendid kitchen of Upper House before everyone dispersed to get ready for the main event. The wedding was held in what is called ‘The Great Hall’ and you’ll see why they call it that from the photos below, with a small gathering of the essential people for Peter and Sue plus the acoustic and vocals it made for a lovely intimate ceremony which I thoroughly enjoyed photographing.

Unfortunately though being close to Kinder Scout and the surrounding inclement weather it meant we didn’t quite have that fairytale story of glorious sunshine and fluffy white clouds, that being said it didn’t put an damper on anyone’s spirits and the guests all seemed to really enjoy themselves after the ceremony and during the meal. Once the meal had finished I had noticed a serious improvement in the weather, some moody skies but with some shafts of light breaking through every now and again, so I made the decision to get Peter and Sue to wonder out with me away from the house and in the direction of Kinder Reservoir for some shots. They donned their wellies for the wet grass we were about to embark upon and brought with them their best smiles, it worked, we were so lucky and had about 10-15 minutes of some amazing beautiful light which has given them both some amazing shots that they can treasure forever now.

I hope you enjoy looking through the smaller selection of images from their wedding below…
