Now on with the wedding photographs!

I’ve been looking forward to posting more of Jane and Neil’s wedding photographs since the sneak peek a few weeks ago. It’s taken me a while to compile as we’ve been so busy, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s been worth the wait! Jane and Neil were a great couple to work with – friendly and relaxed, and so clearly in love that it was a delight to capture all the special moments of their wedding day. To top it all off they had a lovely bunch of people celebrating with them – the wedding was an intimate affair with their closest friends and family – a cool city venue and some great winter sunshine.

Jane chose to get ready unobserved (by my camera lens!) so there’s just a few bridal morning shots before we move on to a fantastic set of images that Chris took of the groom and his best men outside Sheffield registry office before the ceremony. I’ve mentioned this before, but sometimes the groom’s preparations can get neglected. Chris always spends some time capturing relaxed images with the groom’s party before the wedding and they really do make a great start to the wedding album. But we start with the bride Jane, looking radiant with her lovely daughter and bridesmaid Ellie.



The bride arrives!

I love Jane’s expression in these ceremony shots…

One day I’m going to do a blog post of confetti shots because I absolutely love Chris’s confetti shots. It’s such a fun moment, with some great expressions from the bride and groom (and sometimes some pretty manic ones from over-enthusiastic confetti throwers) and then there’s the beautiful colour and movement…Anyway, these must rank among my favourites…

I can’t resist one more – especially with these happy expressions and this cool city backdrop…

It was very busy around Sheffield Peace Gardens on a Saturday just before Christmas but we found this great location before we moved on to the reception…

Jane and Neil’s wedding reception venue was the Hilton Hotel at Sheffield, which proved to be a great backdrop for photos, including these group shots…

I am officially a huge fan of city weddings after this one…so many amazing locations for gorgeous couple shots…

I never can pick my favourite from these next two…maybe I love them both the same!

See what I mean about the locations?…


What a cool couple…

The beautiful table settings were created by Neil’s mum Jan. And what cute cakes!

When Chris and I had come along to the Hilton Hotel in Sheffield to do our venue research before the big day we had scoped out some excellent spots for night-time photography, just in case the weather wasn’t kind during the day. We always like to have our contingencies worked out in advance, although as it happened it was a gorgeous (if cold!) day. We didn’t want to let the great night-time locations go to waste and luckily for us Jane and Neil were dream clients, braving the cold to come out for some beautifully atmospheric night-time shots. A recommendation for any couple having a winter wedding (and as photographers we do love a winter wedding – the light can be incredible!) is to bring some warm add-ons to your wedding attire, like Jane’s cute furry jacket. There is no doubt that in winter you WILL be cold, and there’s also little doubt that if you’re too cold to have your photo taken outdoors in the great venue that you have chosen for your wedding, you will regret it. Anyway, that’s enough of ‘Erica’s tips for brides!’ Enjoy these last few images…

Thank you Jane and Neil for choosing us to photograph your special day – you were a joy to work with we had a great day.
