A few weeks ago I had the lovely pleasure of photographing the wedding of Dawn and Callum down in Chesterfield.
The day started with a little bridal prep at the lovely Ringwood Hall Hotel, followed by a quick drive back into Yorkshire to Christ Church in Hackenthorpe for the vows, then back to Ringwood Hall for the wedding breakfast and evening do.
The day was blue-sky beautiful with the sun blazing down. The bridal prep was a laugh as usual, with plenty of kids running round to keep everyone on their toes. Balancing a chair on the bed to hang the wedding dress wasn't the best idea I've ever had, but I survived the wobbly deal unscathed!
After the prep, it was on to the church.
Callum was patiently waiting for his Bride-to-be. He was also looking a tad nervous!
The vows were fun, with plenty of laughs thrown in. Also plenty of tears from both the bride and the groom!
Pretty soon the vows were done, songs were sung and confetti was thrown. And kisses were had - lots of kisses.
Back to the Hall!
We arrived back and chilled in the gardens while finishing touches were made to the room.
I whisked Dawn and Callum away for a few photos round the grounds, then it was back to inspect the room. When Callum saw the memorial place setting for his father at the top table, the emotions ran very high. It was an absolutely beautiful, touching moment. I had a bit of a lump in my throat too!
Food was served, toasts were had, cakes were cut and dances were danced.
And lots more kissing too.
A beautiful, emotional day that I was privileged to be a part of.
Thanks for having me guys - you rocked.
Here's a few images from their day.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
