A few weeks ago I had the awesome honour of shooting the beautiful wedding of Joanne and David.
The entire day was held in Whitley Hall, a beautiful 16th Century mansion set in the countryside on the outskirts of Sheffield. I've been looking forward to shooting here for a while - the place is an ivy-clad beauty with lovely grounds full of wandering peacocks.
The day started a bit different to most - it was my eldest boy's 16th birthday. So after a cup of tea, we dragged his lazy teenage bum out of bed and forced him to open his presents before I left. I'm pretty sure he went back to bed afterwards!
Jo didn't want any bridal prep, so upon arrival I had a little nosey around the grounds as the guests were arriving. David soon appeared so I snapped a few shots before everyone was ushered into the ceremony room.
Once the coast was clear, Jo and the girls made their way down and it was time for business.
Pretty soon the vows were said, kisses were kissed and the happy couple headed out into the glorious sunshine.
The day was an absolute belter - beautiful blue with a blazing sun. I'm pretty sure everyone almost had to be dragged back inside for the food! Once the meals had been had, it was time for the speeches - and the best man was looking a little green! Despite the nerves, he pulled a belter out of the bag.
Along with some pretty incriminating photos of the Groom!
Everyone had a good laugh and it was back into the gardens to soak up the rest of the sun.
Well, after the surprise birthday cake that is!
After enjoying the rare Yorkshire sunshine it was soon time to head back inside for the cake cutting and the first dance.
People laughed, people loved and people lived. Pretty much prefect.
Thanks for having me guys - it was awesome.
Here are 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.
