Sophie and Lee are 2 of the loveliest humans with equally lovely friends and family. When you have so many great people together at a wedding it always makes it a pleasure to be able to document the story of this wedding day. I arrived and met Sophie getting ready, she was doing her own makeup and so lovely that she had spent some time on a course learning how best to do it. To have less people in the room at bridal prep just made it all feel so chilled, which it needed to, this day in September was one where the UK seemed to be having a freak heatwave. I think we topped out at 32 Celsius and you can tell, the whole day was filled with fans to help people with the heat.
I hadn’t realised until the morning but Sophie had put her fashion expertise into use and had made her own wedding dress!! It looked gorgeous and I loved the colour of the material Sophie had chosen. I loved the way that the sunlight enriched the colour throughout the day and it just worked so well with the whole vibe of Sophie and Lee’s wedding ceremony which was conducted by Celebrant Hannah Wroe Gill. There was no shortage of tears from the guests who were watching this lovely duo tie the knot. They had one of the most impressive display of flowers as their backdrop on the gazebo at Losehill House.
After what was a beautiful ceremony Sophie and Lee snook off for a 5 minute breather and to enjoy a quite moment together with a glass of bubbly before being greeted by an abundance of happiness and congratulations from their loved ones. After a few group shots we took a short stroll down the leafy lane for some couples portraits, the hard light giving me the opportunity to create some moody portraits for Sophie and Lee. They even got enveloped by a group of hikers out in the Peak District which I had to capture of course (Insta vs Reality and all that!).
When we got back to Losehill House and before the meal and speeches I nipped into the dining room to capture a few details. At this point I saw their cake, it was absolutely amazing when you know where the cake represents. It’s modelling based on Ox Stones with Lee and Sophie standing looking at each other, it was an exceptional likeness to the stones themselves! After the speeches we were gifted with a beautiful sunset which of course I had to make use of before we went into the cutting of that amazing cake and getting everyone on the dance floor. Anyway enough from me, have a watch of their photo highlights video below or you can always scroll through the images underneath. Enjoy.
