Iain and Amanda at Eyam Hall

Eyam Hall Wedding by Sheffield Wedding Photographer Chris Loneragan

Iain and Amanda live in the USA and so I only met them by video before they flew to the UK to get married at Eyam Hall in the Derbyshire Peak District, but they felt like old friends on the day. They flew what felt like hundreds of family and friends over to spend the day with them, and the multi cultural feel was amazing. The weather was wonderful, the laughter infectious, and they had the perfect English (with a bit of American) wedding.

2022! Back With a Bang!

2022 was the year that weddings came back!

The summer was a heady mix of outdoor weddings, fantastic hazy summer light and the fulfilment of lots of couples long held weddings dreams after the pandemic. It was brilliant too to meet up with couples again who were now having a big wedding party after an intimate lockdown wedding, or who were celebrating the birth of their little ones with a photo shoot - so many babies, you have all been busy! Another highlight has been the weddings of family and friends of couples who I have already photographed. It's always such a compliment when people love their photos enough to recommend me to their loved ones.

I hope you enjoy watching the slideshow as much as i have enjoyed putting it together. Happy New Year!

Abi and Scott at Whirlowbrook Hall

Whirlowbrook Hall Wedding by Sheffield Wedding Photographer Chris Loneragan

Abi and Scott tied the knot at the fabulous Whirlowbrook Hall in Sheffield. Their late summer wedding was the wedding of their dreams and shared with their closest friends and family. A special touch for Abi and Scott was their pre-ceremony reveal on the stairs - a touching and very private moment. The lawn games were also a massive hit - especially when Abi's mum showed everyone how to limbo!

I hope you enjoy the images.

Anna and Alastair's Summer Wedding at The Maynard

Maynard Wedding by Sheffield Wedding Photographer Chris Loneragan Peak District Wedding 0822 45

Anna and Alastair chose one of the hottest days of 2022 to get married, and they did it in style! Their day was filled with wonderful friends and family, some awesome personal touches (check out the table plan tree and the hand made sign post!), and a sunset trip to the Peak District for some gorgeous sunset portraits.

The Maynard is always one of my favourite wedding venues, so if you are getting married there why not get in touch to discuss your wedding photography.

Francesca and Michael's Spectacular Thornbridge Hall Wedding

Frankie and Mike chose the beautiful Peak District for their summer wedding. A lovely cottage in Great Longstone was the base for Frankie and her family and bridesmaids to get ready, followed by a beautiful service at St Anne's Church in Baslow, and then a cracking reception at Thronbridge Hall. Transport was provided by a double decker London bus and a vintage Rolls Royce. The whole day was made very special or them by their wonderful family and friends. Frankie's sister (Jenny Walser) was a brilliant toast master for some very heartfelt and often funny speeches, the Ceilidh was hilarious, and the live band finished the evening in style.

Pamela and Sam's oh so elegant Chatsworth House wedding

Chatsworth House wedding by Sheffield wedding photographer Chris Loneragan

I've been excitedly waiting for Pam and Sam's Chatsworth House wedding ever since they first contacted me, and made all the more so by their beautiful bluebell inspired woodland pre-wedding shoot. The day did not disappoint as Pam and Sam are two of the loveliest people ever! Their wedding was a blending of cultures in one of England's finest stately homes, and features timeless elegance married with fun, laughter, and plenty of love.

Sarah and Tristan's wonderful Peak District wedding at Eyam Hall

Eyam Hall wedding by Peak District and Sheffield wedding photographer

Sarah and Tristan's wedding was one of those truly special days - not only because two people that love each other dearly got married, but they were blessed with some of that special afternoon light that only the Peak District can offer.

The day started at The George Hotel in Hathersage with the girls getting ready. Tristan's nerves were probably a tad frayed when Sarah arrived fashionably late at St Michael and All Angels Church, but he was soon smiling his huge smile again when she walked down the aisle. As soon as the service was over it was outside to throw confetti in the beautiful May sunshine before jumping in the vintage VW Camper (Vintage Volksweddings) for a trip to Higgar Tor for some relaxed portraits in the rugged landscape of the Peak District. This was my favourite part of the day as the light really did help me paint some gorgeous images. The happy couple then jumped back in the camper for the ride to Eyam Hall and a wonderful reception the garden marquee. Food was masterfully supplied by the Greedy Greek and the hospitality from the staff at Eyam Hall was second to none. Sarah and Tristan added personal touched to the decor, including a cake stand made from old doors from the house they are renovating and a fun filled cupcake bake-off competition.

Thank you for inviting me to be part of your special day.

Wow! What a year 2018 was!

2018 has been nothing other than a wow year for me as a wedding photographer. I have been part of so many amazing weddings and have been privileged to capture so many wonderful memories for all the couples that chose me for their special day. The long hot summer meant that summer weddings were extra happy affairs, and the endless evenings with golden light were truly special. Looking back through the year's images brings back many happy memories for me and reminds me (not that I ever forget) that I LOVE wedding photography.

I hope you enjoy these wedding images as much as I do, and please get in touch if you would like me to tell your wedding story.

Rachel and Ashley's stunning sunset wedding at Peak Edge Hotel

Sunset at Peak Edge Wedding photography by Sheffield wedding photographer Chris Loneragan Peak District wedding

Rachel and Ashley married at the amazing Peak Edge Hotel on a glorious October day. For me as a photographer the best thing about October weddings is the light, and this wedding was one with beautiful low afternoon sun and a gorgeous golden evening glow. The other good thing about this wedding, of course, was Rachel and Ashley (and Ashley's gigantic family!) Rachel was beautiful in her stunning Nora Eve dress and Ashley played the part of the dapper groom in blue tweed. This was a day to remember - thank you so much for inviting me to be part of it.

Anita and Luke's Alice in Wonderland themed wedding at Whirlowbrook Hall

peak district wedding photography bridal portrait edge

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
(Lewis Carroll - Alice in Wonderland)

This was an awesome wedding and, unlike the quote above, there wasn't a mad person in sight! Anita and Luke are made for each other and it shows in the subtle glances and cheeky looks they gave each other throughout the day. Anita's dress was styled by the amazing Vyn Johns (it looks stunning in the Peak District photos), and she had the most amazing pair of Alice in Wonderland shoes. The bridesmaids were an extremely lively bunch who supported Anita throughout the day and were also very able photography assistants, and Luke was accompanied by a great bunch of friends who seemed to know exactly when to take the mickey out of him.

Whirlowbrook Hall is always one of my favourite venues, and any wedding there is a wedding to remember. The grounds are beautiful, but the Peak District is even more beautiful and so we jumped in the car and headed out to Higgar Tor for an hour in the evening to capture some lovely images of the happy couple. Amazingly there is no hint of the fact that it was 2 degrees in the photos, but when two people love each other this much cold is no obstacle.

Enjoy the slideshow and pictures, and I would love to hear from you if you would like me to be your wedding photographer.

A look back at 2017

It's that time of year again - 2017 was a truly special year and 2018 looks to be an amazing year with lots of wonderful wedding stories waiting to be told. 2017 was made even more special with Helen and I joining the many happy couples tying the knot with our own wedding last July. I have been fortunate to work with many wonderful wedding suppliers and have forged many new friendships along the way. My highlight of the year, apart from my own wedding, was not in any single wedding but in the many stories my images tell and the wealth of memories I have given my clients. Being a wedding photographer really is a privileged job to have.

If you are looking for a wedding story teller to photograph your wedding in 2018, 2019 or 2020 then please do get in touch for a chat.

This is a video review of my favourite images from 2017. Enjoy - and tell your friends too.

Peak District pre-wedding shoot with Christina and Toby

Peak District pre-wedding photography Christina and Toby edge

Christina and Toby are a couple who are very much in love. I am a photographer and I am very much in love with the Peak District, so what better place to celebrate our mutual affections than sunset at Curbar Edge. It is fair to say that when Christina and Toby left after the shoot, they had also fallen deeply in love with the Peak District.

Enjoy the photos, and if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding or couples shoot, then please get in touch.

Catherine and Pearce's Peak District marquee wedding in the Spring sunshine at Standlow Farm

Derbyshire marquee wedding at Standlow Farm by Sheffield wedding photographer-39 edge

Remember that beautiful hot summer day we had in April this year? Well that was the perfect day for Catherine and Pearce's amazing marquee wedding at Standlow Farm in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District. The first thing I noticed when I arrived was the swimming costumes drying in the sun - in April!

Catherine wore a most beautiful Essense of Australia vintage lace dress which contrasted perfectly with her bridesmaids' purple tones. The vintage theme was carried over in to the 1960s VW camper that whisked her off to the church in Kniveton - fashionable just a few minutes late of course. Pearce had a few personal touches with his blue suit - cufflinks with C and P engaged on them and some personalised stitching inside his jacket.

The church at Kniveton is absolutely beautiful, if a little bit tiny, inside and was packed with Catherine and Pearce's family and friends. The ceremony was traditional right up until the end when everyone got up to dance and sing one of Pearce's favourite songs as the married couple exited the church. After a few glasses of champagne outside the VW camper then took them back to the farm for a marquee reception with some of the best wedding food I have yet to taste. A perfect day was made even more perfect by golden sunshine that lasted until the pizza oven opened outside for the evening guests to enjoy.

Fabulous suppliers (see below):

Katie and Craig's Peak Edge Hotel wedding

Peak Edge Hotel wedding by Sheffield wedding photographer Chris Loneragan

When two of the most easy going people you could ever meet get married you can be sure they will have a great time, and that's exactly what Katie and Craig's wedding was - fun, fun, fun!

The dress: a stunning vintage lace Maggie Sottero that made Katie look a million dollars and more. The girls: a crazy fun bunch that were all beautiful in their pastel shades. The groom: clearly loves Katie to bits. The guys: a genuinely nice crowd dressed in suits by Reece Ford.

Check out the photos for a feel of this wonderful wedding, portraits by the famous rock, a lovely sunset, and hilarious guests.

Once again it's a big thank you to Peal Edge Hotel for looking after the bride and groom, their guests, and of course their photographer. But my biggest thank you goes to Katie and Craig for inviting me to be part of their wedding and document their special day.

I hope you enjoy the slideshow - it gives a real flair of what Katie and Craig's wedding was all about.

Amy and Scott's pre-wedding shoot in the Peak District

edge Peak District wedding photography engagement shoot

A beautiful late summer evening in the glorious Peak District was the perfect setting for Amy and Scott's pre-wedding shoot. The scheduled hour was such fun with these two that almost two hours flew by without us noticing - and that was despite Amy and Scott having to get a train back to London. Capturing the 'click' between two people is one of the best parts of my job as a wedding photographer, and there is nothing but 'click' in these images. Watch out for their wedding photos in a few weeks - I can't wait to photograph this couple again.

Amy and Jonathan's intimate wedding at Baslow Hall

edge baslow hall wedding by sheffield wedding photographer

Amy and Jonathan are one of the nicest couples you could wish to meet, and I had a wonderful day photographing their wedding at the stunning Baslow Hall.

The theme for the day was simple and intimate, something Baslow Hall is extremely well suited to. However Amy ensured the attention was on her with her stunning fifties dress, and Jonathan livened things up with his blue striped linen suit and bow tie.

The day started with some reportage shots of Amy getting ready with her sister and niece, before moving to Baslow Hall to capture the guests happily chatting with Jonathan. A quick trip outside produced some cool images of Jonathan just before Amy arrived to accept his hand in a ceremony filled with love and humour. A few drinks, a brilliant confetti shot, and it was off to the woods for some romantic images of the married couple. Some more shots of the guests, a beautiful meal, and then all too quick it was time to say congratulations and goodbye. Thank you to Jonathan and Amy for inviting me to be part of your special day.

Jess and Craig's Easter wedding

edge peak edge hotel wedding by sheffield wedding photographer

If you want dramatic wedding photography then you need to invite a storm, and Storm Katie turned up at just the right moment. Jess and Craig's wedding on Easter Sunday at Peak Edge Hotel was a beautiful day filled with fun, romance, hail stones, dark clouds, and brilliant sunshine. Even with the storm, Jess's spring flowers and the men's blue suits made sure there were never really any dark moments at all.
