The 'Veil-shot' one! 'Becky & Aaron'

My first wedding as a photographer at Ringwood hall in Chesterfield. I knew the venue from being a guest at my Auntie's wedding, with it’s elegant rooms and beautiful grounds. I arrived early to capture bridal preparation photos while the prosecco flowed! Jess from Blossom Lounge, Chesterfield was busy doing an amazing job with everyone's hair and Zoe was making everyone look flawless with stunning make-up.

Aaron and the men were also busily getting ready with Aaron's mum doing some last minute ironing and checking of ties! A quick check that the rings had been remembered, button holes pinned and we nipped off outside for a breath of fresh air and some relaxed, posed shots.

It's all in the details

The Groom

Then it was back upstairs in time to capture the emotional moment Bec’s dad saw his beautiful daughter in her wedding dress - tears all round. The bridal party gathered, led by maid of honour, Bec’s beautiful sister Laura and they made there way to the Chatsworth room for the ceremony.

The bridal party

After a beautiful ceremony and a drink with their guests, group photos took place in the secret garden, where the sun tried it’s very hardest to give us a wave! I then had the pleasure of taking some gorgeous shots with the newly married Mr & Mrs Stone!

'I love you'

'With these rings....'

Gorgeous veil!

'We're married'

The stunning bride - did I say she's Ginger, perfect!

The wedding breakfast followed and then speeches. For the reception photo’s I was accompanied by a pair of budding photographers!! The evening reception and buffet was in full swing when I left Bec & Aaron to party the night away with their friends and family (sampling a samosa on the way out!!)

My young apprentices!!

Don't look now mummy but I think the bride and groom are kissing!


The first dance

Happily ever after xx

Thank you for letting me be part of your day! Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness, Emma xx
