Date: 12st November 2016
Ceremony and Reception: Cubley Hall, Peak District

When I met Jenny and Andy for the engagement shoot it is fair to say Andy was a little hesitant (and slightly hungover) about having his photo taken.  Yet after 5 mins he was proving to be a natural, as was Jenny who is just always smiling.  They are a lovely couple and it was a pleasure to capture their beautiful day.

The morning started a little foggy and dark but as the morning went by it turned into a beautiful fresh winter day.  After taking a few photos of the boys I met the bridal party in the busy bridal suite.  Jenny was her usual self, amazingly relaxed, whilst the rest of the bridal party were a little more anxious.  By the time Jenny had her dress on everyone was excited and relaxed (the Jager did the trick) and the little flower girls were eagerly awaiting the walk across to the ceremony.  Here are few of the morning…

Cubley hall is a fantastic venue for a wedding, especially civil weddings using the outside pavilion or beautiful converted barn.  The ceremony took place in the barn where Andy was waiting patiently.  It was a lovely ceremony which involved lots of smiling and happy tears.

After the ceremony we quickly got the formals and group photos done.  I always like to get through these as fast as possible so we can they head off with the couple and the bridesmaids and groomsmen for some fun and relaxed photos.  We used the beautiful garden pavilion for photos before I took Jenny and Andy alone for some alone time around the gorgeous grounds.

The evening was back in the barn that looked amazing.  The speeches were epic and the groom did a fantastic job of praising his beautiful wife and ripping one of his best men to pieces.  Isn’t it normally supposed to be the other way around? It was hilarious and even the bride had the room in stitches with her speech, followed by strict orders for everyone to shot more eager.  All in all a wonderful winter wedding that had everything.
