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.

Alex and Jon's whimsical Whirlowbrook Hall wedding

Whirlowbrook Hall is a little gem on the edge of Sheffield and was the perfect venue for Alex and Jon's whimsical wedding. The beautiful grounds give a wealth of opportunity for bride and groom portraits, and for this one we disappeared into the woods to make the most of Alex's wonderful long veil against the lush contrast of an English woodland.

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!

Lisa and James' magical autumn wedding at Wentworth Church and Rotherham Golf Club

Rotherham Golf Club wedding and Wentworth Church wedding edge

Late November sunshine! Who could want more for their wedding? Lisa and James had the most beautiful of wedding days at three spectacular venues. The Rockingham Arms Hotel in Wentworth was the scene of an early start for the bride and bridesmaids with their fabulous hair and makeup artists - the low sunshine coming through the trees set up some lovely bridesmaid portraits. Off then to one of England's finest churches at Holy Trinity in Wentworth for a ceremony with a wonderful choral rendition of Ave Maria and some fun photos outside - check out the wild confetti shots in this blog - even the normal reserved James was smiling! The whole party was then moved to Rotherham Golf Club for a splendid meal and evening party. The grounds at Rotherham Gold Club were perfect for lots of evening light portraits. Thank you for inviting me to photograph you wedding, and I hope you enjoy the photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Remember remember the 5th of November! Laura and Jason will never forget their wonderful wedding day on bonfire night in Sheffield City Centre. The day was blessed with amazing weather and gorgeous autumn light from getting ready at St Paul's Mercure Hotel, through the beautiful ceremony at St Marie's Catholic Cathedral, until our little walk around the city centre capturing some beautiful bridal portraits in the city lights.

Jennie and Mark's fun fun fun wedding at Wortley Hall

edge wortley hall wedding by sheffield wedding photographer

You can tell a lot about a couple at the first meeting. Some couples invite you to their homes, some choose cafes and nice coffee, Jennie and Mark chose a pub and a pint! They turned out to be one of the most fun, sociable and genuinely down to earth couples I have ever worked with, and I think it shows through in the fun and emotional photos from their wedding day. Wortley Hall is a great venue for a wedding photographer and Jennie and Mark are a great couple so sit back and enjoy this selection of images from their wedding.

Clare and Andrew chose the grounds of Whitley Hall Hotel, their wedding venue, for their pre-wedding shoot and there was no way I was going to say no to an hour wandering the beautiful gardens in the middle of a May heatwave. Their wedding is in a few weeks and I am looking forward to photographing them again on the big day. Enjoy the pictures Happy

Kristina and Alasdair's engagement shoot

edge

Today's pre-wedding shoot at Harthill featured snow, rain and a teeny bit of sunshine - typical English weather totally unlike the Californian sunshine Kris is used to, but that she took in her stride with a little help from Al's tweed jacket. They are a lovely couple and I'm really looking forward to their wedding on Saturday. Enjoy the sneak peek...
