Alfreton Hall Wedding, Derbyshire – Mr & Mrs Stocks
Here’s a collection of photographs from a lovely Alfreton Hall Wedding in Derbyshire. Alfreton Hall is a beautiful grade II listed building with stunning architecture and elegant interiors. It was my first wedding here, not only was I impressed with the venue from a photographic perspective, but the staff we’re fantastic – You literally couldn’t ask for more.
Now this wedding would be a little different for me, mainly because the bride is my little sister! I knew it would feel a little strange capturing my father walking down the aisle and also being around family and friends when I’m working! Having an assistant really pays dividends in this scenario, not only have I got an extra set of eyes and hands from bridal prep’ to 1st dance, but another photographer who can take the group shots that I’m in. It also gave me the chance to put my camera down for a couple of hours in the evening and have a chat with family over a beer.
Aimee & David had originally planned to tie the knot last summer, but when Aimee went into unexpected labour at just 24 weeks, the early and unanticipated arrival of baby Eric just 4 days before their big day undoubtedly halted proceedings. (I don’t think Eric wanted to miss it!) I know the months following the arrival of Eric we’re tough times and they’ve have had a long journey – which is what made their day even more special.
Aimee and her bridesmaids got the day started with hair and make up before heading to Alfreton Hall in a 1930’s Beauford convertible. The weather was spot on which meant we could get a few group shots outside. After a scrumptious 3 course wedding breakfast we went for a little stroll to get some shots of the newlyweds.
The evening reception had lots to offer, with a hog roast, popcorn & candyfloss cart, photo booth and fireworks to top off a lovely day & night.
You can see Alfreton Hall weddings have a lot to offer. I’m looking forward to the next time I photograph a wedding here.
