Derbyshire Wedding Photography: After speaking to Sarah & Shane about their 2015 Derbyshire Wedding at their picturesque farm, located in a small village on the outskirts on Chesterfield, it soon became apparent this was a wedding I was really looking forward to. The thought of capturing a vintage themed farm wedding with Tipi’s and farm animals etc was really appealing!

On the morning of the wedding myself and my assistant Gareth met with the girls to begin our storytelling. 9 bridesmaids, fresh pain au chocolate’s, cava, laughter, flowers (made by the mother of the bride) and lots of details enabled us to capture a wide range of shots.

The church ceremony was an interesting one from a photography perspective, not only did the reverend allow me to choose a suitable location at the front of the church, she also allowed guests to express their excitement (once they became Mr & Mrs Saunders) with party poppers and cheers!

The evening reception was at Oak Tree Farm, I was instantly impressed with the amount of hard work that had gone into making the evening reception so special. Three large Tipi’s joined together made the perfect setting for their evening, with led lights on the beams (I love LED lights at weddings!) and details in all directions, I was like a kid in a sweet shop capturing all the tipi had to offer.

Shortly after the wedding party had consumed their buffet, there was a surprise in store for Sarah & Shane, a helicopter flew in and took the newly weds on a short flight around the local area. A few speeches later and it was gone 7pm, (Time flies when your having fun!) The sun was setting fast and I knew we would be in for a nice sunset, a short 2 minute walk to the top of the field is all we needed to grab a couple of photographs of the loving couple set in a beautiful warm scene.

Having the perfect light in the background and some hay bales by the tractor, we captured some really nice outdoor country group shots, perfect.

The evening entertainment was a four piece rock & roll band by the name of The Buddies. They not only had a fantastic sound, but a brilliant stage presence with plenty of banter!


I think this collection of Derbyshire wedding photography shows just how much love Sarah & Shane have for each other and what a fantastic wedding this was for everybody involved.
