The West Mill Wedding Photography | Danielle & Craig

 
 
Westmill Wedding Photography
 

Industrial Wedding Venue In Derby

Earlier in the year I was asked by Danielle and Craig to Photograph their wedding day at the West Mill in Derby. The Mill is a grade 1 listed building and sits on the river Derwent. It was originally built as a cotton spinning mill in 1822 and has since been beautifully restored. It has kept all of its character and charm and is now an exclusive wedding venue and one of my favourite places to photograph a wedding.

I spent the morning with the girls as they had their hair and make up done before heading over to St Alkmund's Church in nearby Duffield and then onto the wedding reception which was held at the West Mill in Derby.
Family and friends travelled from all over the country to celebrate with Danielle and Craig at the West Mill. 
A big thank you to all the staff for their fantastic hospitality and for making the day run so smoothly.
The West Mill is a fantastic exclusive use wedding venue and I hope to return here again very soon.

Harlaxton Manor Wedding Photographer

 

Very few wedding venues have the same wow factor as Harlaxton Manor. The approach is incredible and it takes you up its mile long drive way and under the gatehouse before finally arriving at the Manor,  set in 117 acres of gardens and woodland with views over looking the Vale of Belvoir.

In this beautiful 1830's country estate was Roxanne and Drew's wedding. My day as a Harlaxton Manor wedding photographer doesn't get much better than this. Harlaxton is one of the most sought after wedding venues in the country and its very easy to see why.

There are so many photographic opportunities here with its beautiful gardens and endless back drops. Roxanne and Drew had an amazing wedding day among family and friends at this superb wedding venue in Grantham. A big thank you to all the staff at Harlaxton for their fantastic hospitality. 

Here are a few of my favourites from the day, Enjoy!

Preparations for the wedding


I began the day with Chris and his groomsman at the Bull and Swan, which is a beautiful little hotel in the middle of Stamford before heading over to St John the Evangelist Church in nearby Ryhall for the wedding service and then onto the reception which was held at the beautiful Burghley house estate.


 

Relaxed documentary photography at Burghley House


I have been to Burghley House a few times in the past and it was good to be back at this amazing wedding venue again and shoot alongside Rachel Blackwell. You can see why Burghley is such a sought after wedding venue and my job as a wedding photographer doesn't get much better than this. 

Champagne and canapés were waiting for the wedding guests as they arrived in the Rose Garden along with various lawn games. The Great Hall was set up beautifully for their wedding breakfast with spectacular floral arrangements by Rebecca at Pollen Designs who is Burghley's recommended florist and you can see why.

Sophie and Chris are both from Stamford and wanted to embrace their surroundings and make the most of the stunning scenery that is on their doorstep. The weather was great,  and just a beautiful place to have your wedding. Burghley House is now one of my new favourite places to photograph a wedding

Thank you to the staff at Burghley House for their hospitality and for making their day so special.

Here are a few highlights from the day, enjoy!

Natural, Relaxed Wedding Photography At Langar Hall

 

Melanie and Daniel chose to get married at Langar Hall which is located in the vale of Belvoir. I always look forward to shooting at this wonderful wedding venue. The 19th century manor is set in lush gardens and is quirky, fun and full of character and is perfect for an intimate wedding. 

I began the day with Melanie and the girls at Langar Hall for their bridal preparations. The morning was very relaxed and the girls enjoyed a glass of champagne or two while they opened gifts and cards. The ceremony was held at St Mary the Virgin Church in nearby Plumtree. 

Family and friends travelled from all corners of the globe & celebrated with Melanie and Daniel until the early hours.

Thank you to all the staff at Langar Hall who made Melanie & Daniel's wedding day so special.

Melanie & Daniel enjoyed their honeymoon in Crete.

What a fantastic day and it was so lovely to be part of their special day, here are a few of my favourites from the wedding.

Swancar Farm Wedding Photographer | Emma & Paul

 
 
 

Swancar Farm Wedding Photography

 

Emma and Paul's wedding at Swancar Farm was my last wedding of the year and one that I had been looking forward to since they booked me earlier in the year. It isn't my first time as a Swancar Farm wedding photographer and hopefully I will shoot many more at this wonderful wedding venue.

It was a cold, crisp December morning and I started the day with Paul and the boys as they got ready in the bridal suite at Swancar Farm. The entire day was held at the venue. The long drive approaching Country house is a backdrop that everybody loves. Emma and the girls got ready at her home which is a short drive away. Emma looked stunning in her beautiful Jenni Packham dress (which I get asked about quite often)


 

Wedding Ceremony In the Barn


Emma and Paul had their beautiful intimate wedding ceremony in the Gallery which is situated in the upper part of the Barn. After such a lovely ceremony everybody headed downstairs to the Lower Barn which features beamed ceilings and a beautiful stone floor to enjoy reception drinks and canapes among family and friends.

The wedding breakfast and evening reception was held in the stunning Oak Hall. The wedding speeches were hilarious and Emma's dads speech was very moving. It was a wonderful day and I enjoyed every minute of it. Swancar Farm is a fabulous wedding venue to celebrate a marriage and I hope to return there very soon.

Family and friends travelled from all over the UK and further to celebrate . A big thank you to all the staff for their amazing hospitality and for making the day run smoothly.

Callow Hall is a beautiful country house set in the Derbyshire peak district and is very close to the market town of Ashbourne. It is set in over 35 acres of gardens and country side and is the perfect place to get married with wonderful views looking over to Dovedale.

Not my first time as a Callow Hall wedding photographer, It was great to be back at this beautiful wedding venue in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak district.

 

Wedding Preparations
 

Lauren and the girls all got ready at Callow Hall in the bridal suite and it was a very relaxing morning while they all had their hair and make up done along with the odd glass of champagne. 

 

Outdoor Wedding Ceremony
 

Lauren and Greg wanted to do something a little different and that was to get married outside. Luckily it was a perfect day for this and they were blessed with blue skies and temperatures in the high twenties. Callow Hall is now one of my new favourite places to photograph a wedding.

Family and friends travelled from all over the UK and further to celebrate with Lauren and Greg and everyone had a fantastic time and partied until the early hours.
