Alana and Paul’s White Wedding | December 2009 | Sneak Preview

Alana and Paul were married on a beautiful winter’s afternoon at Ringwood Hall in Chesterfield, which was decorated for Christmas complete with a log fire to keep us all warm on the coldest day of the year so far. We start this sneak preview of their wedding photographs with Alana and her bridesmaid Sara getting ready in the pretty Renishaw room, which made a perfect backdrop for the bridal preparations…

Chris and Paul braved the cold to capture these cool images before the ceremony. No evidence yet of the fact that this was a white wedding (some superb snowy shots to follow in the full Blog post!)


Some more of the groom’s preparations and a beautiful portrait of the bride. Because Paul and Alana didn’t get married until 3.00 p.m. and we were only 3 days off the shortest day of the year it meant there was very little natural light available, which gave us a great opportunity to work with the artificial light at Ringwood Hall, together with our own lighting, to create some beautifully dramatic images.


The final shot is one of my favourites. Chris and I were keen to put our lighting to full use in the nighttime darkness after dinner. Paul and Alana were a wonderful couple to work with, braving the chill while we worked quickly to set up the shots…

Thanks to Paul and Alana for your hospitality on the day (especially for including us in the delicious meal) and to Paul’s mum Pauline for your warm welcome. We had a great time photographing this pretty wedding and look forward to sharing more images with you soon!
