“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.

Whirlowbrook Hall is a little gem on the edge of Sheffield and was the perfect venue for Alex and Jon's whimsical wedding. The beautiful grounds give a wealth of opportunity for bride and groom portraits, and for this one we disappeared into the woods to make the most of Alex's wonderful long veil against the lush contrast of an English woodland.

July was a special month in Sheffield - amazing weather, Tramlines music festival, Cliffhanger outdoor festival, oh and Charlotte and Luke got married! This wedding was a festival of love, and when two people love each other like these two then nothing can stop them having the most perfect wedding day.
Whirlowbrook Hall is a gem of a venue with it's rolling parkland and Georgian interiors. Charlotte got ready in the Sycamore room with her four bridesmaids and best friends since childhood. When the time came for Charlotte's dad to see her there was a definite tear in his eye. Off in a vintage roller to St John's Church in Ranmoor and a beautiful ceremony in what is probably one of Sheffield most stunning churches. Ceremony, confetti, and some beautiful doorway portraits of the newly weds all done and it was time for drinks and canapés back at Whirlowbrook. After the wedding breakfast and speeches, I joined Charlotte and Luke for a short walk to capture some intimate moments in the grounds before they returned to their guests and the party which by now was in full swing. It was a wonderful day and I was made to feel like one of the guests, so I would like to thank Charlotte and Luke for inviting me to share their special day.
