I remember getting excited for this wedding. Mike and Gemma had met in Sheffield University, and loved the place from the start. At the time, doing the Pre-Wedding shoot, ideas came flowing through like the water at the Sheffield Peace gardens. Idea’s on where this stylish little picture would go, and how about a photo near the iconic Lyceum Theatre? Gemma was just as excited as I was after I told her the vision we had for her and Mike’s wedding.
The date was set. The venue was booked and the photographer was excited! Alexa and Anthony has looked around this place once before and fell in love with it (so did I). It had so much character. The building was bright, and airy. The interior was restored to it’s fantastic old fashioned self, along with a couple of new mod cons (loved the chandelier!) and the staircase was to die for.
If you’re going to have a traditional style wedding, in an urban setting, then this was definitely the place for Lucy and Nick. Lucy, the stunning bride of the day, and Nick both chose the Upper Chapel church in the centre of Sheffield to host their ceremony.
It was fantastic to see Alexa and Anthony last week for their eShoot. The travel down to Olney was quite a trip, but the trusty SatNav got me there safely and on time.
This stunning wedding took place at the Ye Olde Bell Restaurant and Hotel at Barnby Moor, Retford. The venue itself lends to a vast rear garden, large enough for a helicopter to arrive (which is just how the groom made his grand entrance to the ceremony!), whilst the interior of the hotel is ornately decorated to a fine taste.
