Peak District pre-wedding shoot with Christina and Toby

Peak District pre-wedding photography Christina and Toby edge

Christina and Toby are a couple who are very much in love. I am a photographer and I am very much in love with the Peak District, so what better place to celebrate our mutual affections than sunset at Curbar Edge. It is fair to say that when Christina and Toby left after the shoot, they had also fallen deeply in love with the Peak District.

Enjoy the photos, and if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding or couples shoot, then please get in touch.

Catherine and Pearce's Peak District marquee wedding in the Spring sunshine at Standlow Farm

Derbyshire marquee wedding at Standlow Farm by Sheffield wedding photographer-39 edge

Remember that beautiful hot summer day we had in April this year? Well that was the perfect day for Catherine and Pearce's amazing marquee wedding at Standlow Farm in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District. The first thing I noticed when I arrived was the swimming costumes drying in the sun - in April!

Catherine wore a most beautiful Essense of Australia vintage lace dress which contrasted perfectly with her bridesmaids' purple tones. The vintage theme was carried over in to the 1960s VW camper that whisked her off to the church in Kniveton - fashionable just a few minutes late of course. Pearce had a few personal touches with his blue suit - cufflinks with C and P engaged on them and some personalised stitching inside his jacket.

The church at Kniveton is absolutely beautiful, if a little bit tiny, inside and was packed with Catherine and Pearce's family and friends. The ceremony was traditional right up until the end when everyone got up to dance and sing one of Pearce's favourite songs as the married couple exited the church. After a few glasses of champagne outside the VW camper then took them back to the farm for a marquee reception with some of the best wedding food I have yet to taste. A perfect day was made even more perfect by golden sunshine that lasted until the pizza oven opened outside for the evening guests to enjoy.

Katie and Craig's Peak Edge Hotel wedding

Peak Edge Hotel wedding by Sheffield wedding photographer Chris Loneragan 010417 edge

When two of the most easy going people you could ever meet get married you can be sure they will have a great time, and that's exactly what Katie and Craig's wedding was - fun, fun, fun!

The dress: a stunning vintage lace Maggie Sottero that made Katie look a million dollars and more. The girls: a crazy fun bunch that were all beautiful in their pastel shades. The groom: clearly loves Katie to bits. The guys: a genuinely nice crowd dressed in suits by Reece Ford.

Check out the photos for a feel of this wonderful wedding, portraits by the famous rock, a lovely sunset, and hilarious guests.

Once again it's a big thank you to Peal Edge Hotel for looking after the bride and groom, their guests, and of course their photographer. But my biggest thank you goes to Katie and Craig for inviting me to be part of their wedding and document their special day.

Venue: Peak Edge Hotel at The Red Lion
Dress: Maggie Sottero

Nicole and Mark's Christmas fireworks wedding at Ringwood Hall Hotel

Sheffield wedding photographer Christmas wedding at Ringwood Hall-50 edge

I love Christmas weddings, and Ringwood Hall becomes a magical winter wonderland at this time of year - even without any snow!

Nicole and her bridesmaids got ready at home in Wakefield with Nicole's two cats looking on. The bridesmaids wore beautiful earthy dresses and matching gold trainers. Nicole made the unique pinecone bouquets herself on the morning of the wedding, which were the perfect complement to her stunning bouquet complete with a claret protea from her native South Africa (made by The Little Flower Shop). Mark was waiting slightly longer than expected for his fashionably late bride at St Helen's Church in Wakefield, which was a beautiful candlelit and romantic setting for a Christmas wedding. Vows done it was time to head into the gale force wind for a crazy confetti shot before the now Mr and Mrs headed down the motorway to Derbyshire for their reception.

Wind and rain would keep most brides inside, but Nicole was more than keen to get out for a few high speed portraits which only added to the fun of the day. Check out the veil shots in the gallery below for an idea of just how string the wind was. The wedding breakfast was followed by speeches that were almost as exciting as the weather, filled with South African banter and more than a touch of emotion. The wind dropped just in time for a spectacular surprise firework display on the hotel back lawn before everyone headed back inside to dance the night away.

Congratulations Nicole and Mark, and thank you so much for inviting me to tell the story of your day.

My favourites from 2016


sheffield wedding photographer blog best edge

2016 was a fantastic year for me. I have been privileged to photograph some amazing weddings, and have met and made friends with many lovely couples. I am now a recommended supplier for Kenwood Hall which is one of the top wedding venues in Sheffield, and another venue is in the pipeline! My photographic style and skills are always developing and improving, and I love the creative side of my work - I really am very lucky to be able to earn a living doing something I truly love. 2017 looks to be even more fantastic as not only will I be capturing many more weddings, but I will also experience life on the other side of the lens when I get married to my wonderful fiancee.

I hope you enjoy this short review of some of my 2016 weddings. If you are getting married and like what you see then please get in touch for a chat and a coffee.

Happy New Year!

Amy and Scott's gorgeous autumn wedding at Ringwood Hall Hotel

Ringwood Hall wedding by Sheffield wedding photographer SA151016-101 edge

Amy and Scott are one of those perfect couples that are meant to be together, something that was obvious when I first met them for a pre-wedding shoot at Surprise View in the Peak District. Their wedding can be summed up in three words - fun, romantic, and family. Fun was injected in barrel loads by the groomsmen, the romance was made by Scott and Amy and accentuated by Amy's stunning Essense of Australia dress, and they were surrounded by family from as far away as Australia. Ringwood Hall is always a wonderful place to shoot weddings at, and this one was no exception despite the added challenge of night falling a bit too early - but challenges are opportunities and I think the night time portraits of Scott and Amy have a beautiful painterly look about them. A perfect day was finished beautifully with a sparkler serenade under the big old oak tree. Thank you Amy and Scott for inviting me to share your special day with you, and I hope you enjoy the memories in these images.

Katie and Michael's beautiful Ringwood Hall wedding

Ringwood Hall wedding by Sheffield wedding photographer Chris Loneragan LSWPP KM092016-46 edge

Katie and Michael are one of the loveliest and most genuine couples you would ever want to meet, and their warmth of personality really shows through in their wedding photographs.

Autumn at Ringwood Hall is a special time in the beautiful and extensive gardens. Trees bathed in golden light turn orange, brown and yellow. Low sun enhances every view. And people get married - well not quite at Ringwood Hall in this case as Katie and Michael did everything there apart from the wedding ceremony which they dashed back to St James Church in Norton for. This set of photographs tells the story of their day and I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Megan and Andrew's classical English wedding at Ringwood Hall

Ringwood Hall wedding by Sheffield wedding photographer edge


Megan and Andrew were married in a beautifully English wedding at St James Church in Norton and Ringwood Hall Hotel. Megan looked absolutely stunning in her 1920s inspired vintage dress by New York Bride, and the classic English theme was perfectly accessorised by the groom's men's navy morning suits and the bridesmaid's gorgeous green dress. But that's enough of what everyone looked like, the emotions and characters of the day are always far more memorable, and there was certainly plenty of them! The outstanding character of the day award, if there was one, would go to the best man who gave one of the most entertaining speeches the guests had ever heard - just check out the emotions in this blog. The only downside to the day was that the weather was so wonderful, and Ringwood Hall's gardens are so beautiful, that the DJ would have been very bored had it not been for the few die hard ravers sweating through the tunes.

Amy and Scott's pre-wedding shoot in the Peak District

edge Peak District wedding photography engagement shoot

A beautiful late summer evening in the glorious Peak District was the perfect setting for Amy and Scott's pre-wedding shoot. The scheduled hour was such fun with these two that almost two hours flew by without us noticing - and that was despite Amy and Scott having to get a train back to London. Capturing the 'click' between two people is one of the best parts of my job as a wedding photographer, and there is nothing but 'click' in these images. Watch out for their wedding photos in a few weeks - I can't wait to photograph this couple again.

Amy and Jonathan's intimate wedding at Baslow Hall

edge baslow hall wedding by sheffield wedding photographer

Amy and Jonathan are one of the nicest couples you could wish to meet, and I had a wonderful day photographing their wedding at the stunning Baslow Hall.

The theme for the day was simple and intimate, something Baslow Hall is extremely well suited to. However Amy ensured the attention was on her with her stunning fifties dress, and Jonathan livened things up with his blue striped linen suit and bow tie.

The day started with some reportage shots of Amy getting ready with her sister and niece, before moving to Baslow Hall to capture the guests happily chatting with Jonathan. A quick trip outside produced some cool images of Jonathan just before Amy arrived to accept his hand in a ceremony filled with love and humour. A few drinks, a brilliant confetti shot, and it was off to the woods for some romantic images of the married couple. Some more shots of the guests, a beautiful meal, and then all too quick it was time to say congratulations and goodbye. Thank you to Jonathan and Amy for inviting me to be part of your special day.

Jess and Craig's Easter wedding

edge peak edge hotel wedding by sheffield wedding photographer

If you want dramatic wedding photography then you need to invite a storm, and Storm Katie turned up at just the right moment. Jess and Craig's wedding on Easter Sunday at Peak Edge Hotel was a beautiful day filled with fun, romance, hail stones, dark clouds, and brilliant sunshine. Even with the storm, Jess's spring flowers and the men's blue suits made sure there were never really any dark moments at all.

Jess and Craig's Valentine's Day pre-wedding shoot at Padley Gorge

Jess and Craig decided to make Valentine's Day something extra special this year. They had their engagement shoot in the snow at Padley Gorge in the Peak District, but there is so much warmth between them that I was the only frozen one (Jess's wellies helped warm the day up too). I am really looking forward to photographing their wedding on Easter Sunday.

Whitley Hall is a wedding venue I seem to be spending a lot of my time at this year, but it really is a beautiful place to get married. Jessica and Mark's wedding was no exception - the sun shone, the peacocks looked on, and everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you for asking me to photograph your special day! After the wedding Jessica had these kind words for me, "Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for doing our wedding photography at Whitley Hall on the 6th June. You were amazing, and everyone said how nice you were and how professionally you worked. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thanks again - we will definitely be recommending you to friends getting married in the future."
