Well, it was amazing to finally see Louise + Jason finally tie the knot after many re-arranged attempts (that C word has plenty to answer for)! A rather personal wedding for me as I have known Louise for a long time (and spent plenty of years winding her up) and Jason for just a few years less, a lovely couple who have spent eight years together and after setting a date for the 3rd time were actually able to say their “I Do’s” at the beautiful Losehill House Hotel. One of my favourite Peak District locations for a wedding because of so many factors, and I know that it’s a place that both Jason and Louise love too.
The day started with me covering bridal prep and so much going on between hair and makeup; oh, and opening a few bottles of fizz – top marks to Stacy for being chief fizz opener, even while having her hair and makeup done! Also not often that I even get to see my own daughter at a wedding too (my dream is that one day she will work a wedding day or two with me), but she even popped up to see us for bridal prep and get a sneak peek at the behind the scenes. Not to mention capturing the details of Louise’s gorgeous dress and even finer Louboutin’s; honestly, I could tell that the shoes were an important part of her outfit! After a quick visit from dad to give his seal of approval and a few tears held back from mum, it was time to head down the aisle. Sadly the weather didn’t do what everyone had hoped, and we weren’t able to proceed with an outdoor ceremony under the outdoor wedding gazebo, which had been beautifully decorated by Lou’s aunt, who also happens to be an amazing florist!
Lovely to see a very full orangery at Losehill for the wedding complete with newspaper order of services, a lovely touch I thought and a bit of an ironic headline about them finally getting married after all the changing dates. It was a beautiful service and so lovely to see the whole bridal party in such gorgeous sparkly dresses making the most of all that natural daylight in the room; another reason I love Losehill House weddings for the natural light during the ceremony. It was a beautiful ceremony with some lovely readings and great to see Ann there as registrar too.
After the ceremony, we dashed over to a location Louise + Jason had said they really wanted to do their couples portraits; Surprise View above Hathersage. It’s somewhere I have done many couples portraits and to be honest, it never fails to disappoint with it’s stunning backdrop looking out over the Hope Valley and back towards Losehill House, so it’s somewhat fitting. We arrived back in time to have some family portraits before heading into the wedding breakfast and speeches, I always love a good speech and there was some lovely energy in the room from all the lovely guests. Including plenty of passion from Jason and the rest of the Leeds fans, Lou even got her first Leeds United football shirt and scarf to go with Jason’s ball and chain! And finally, to mention that no wedding of Louise + Jason’s would have been complete without the
moped scooter being there, a huge passion of Lou’s dad Alan, and partly the reason for my tongue-in-cheek correction just there then.
Needless to say I knew that these guys would all be down with the party and hitting the dancefloor, I’m so glad that they didn’t disappoint and I’m sure you’ll see from the gallery that everyone was loving being on the dancefloor. Anyway enough from me, have a watch of their photo highlights video below or you can always scroll through the images underneath. Enjoy.
