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.

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.

Reception venue: Ringwood Hall Hotel, Brampton
Dress: New York Bride

Samantha and Paul's gorgeous summer wedding at Ringwood Hall Hotel in Chesterfield

Sam and Paul's wedding at Ringwood Hall was a classically beautiful affair. The summer weather and gorgeous grounds provided a spectacular setting for a traditional wedding. Sam's dress was gorgeous and gives the illusion of marble in the images. I absolutely loved photographing this wedding, and I am sure you will love the images in this blog post….
