It was a bright autumnal day in Sheffield’s city centre, with a complimentary colour palette of rich oranges and reds perfectly mirroring the time of year. The backdrop was the stunning Victorian architecture of the Town Hall providing the perfect location for the wedding ceremony of David and Lorna.
The groom and best man were first to arrive with guests being greeted at the imposing entrance. Once inside guests were wowed with the grandeur and rich splendour of the Hall’s interior.Lorna’s arrival was equally as impressive. As the stretched limo pulled up outside the building it drew plenty of admiring glances from passers by, keen to catch a glimpse of the bride’s arrival.
The bridal party had been so busy that morning preparing for the big day, that the bride had accidentally forgotten her bouquet! However this didn’t matter, Lorna was perfectly calm and chilled as she strolled into the Town Hall in readiness for the ceremony, nothing was spoiling this day!After the ceremony, which saw the couple exchange wedding bands they’d forged themselves, with the help of a local jewellery maker. Everyone made their way outside to the Peace Gardens for some relaxed group shots, in front of the entertaining fountains.
The wedding celebrations were only a short drive away.
Kelham Island is a fascinating museum filled with exhibits showcasing the best of Sheffield’s Industrial Heritage, perfect for any wedding and ideal for engaging guests whilst the bride and groom are whisked away to explore the urban landscape outside and capture some stunning couple shots.
It’s not everyday that you can photograph a bride and groom beneath England’s largest surviving Bessemer Convertor, but this was that day!
Whilst everyone enjoyed the wedding breakfast and speeches the Ceilidh Band were setting up in readiness for the evening’s entertainment. But before a note was played there was a rare opportunity to witness the mighty River Don Engine in action. Not the usual wedding entertainment, but unquestionably impressive and something everyone enjoyed.Then it was off to the dance floor as the band explained the traditional Ceilidh moves, which were enthusiastically displayed by the happy couple and guests. The band played on into the night, ending perfectly what had been a fantastic day.
