Peak District Wedding Photographer in Eyam
Life as a Peak District wedding photographer is a particular joy when photographing a wedding like Bethan and Roy’s beautiful day recently. Living close by in Grindleford, I was made to feel extremely welcome by Bethan’s family when I first met them all to discuss the wedding photography.
When we met for the engagement shoot it became more of a family portrait. Joining Bethan and Roy were their two young children. Well, that’s fine by me – family photographs are great fun!
The Wedding Day
A beautiful summer’s day, beautiful surroundings and wonderful, kind people made this a wedding to truly remember.
Getting ready at the family home was exciting and emotional for Bethan. When ready she only had to walk across the road with her father to Eyam Church, where a particularly personal ceremony took place.
Having grown up in the beautiful and famous Peak District village of Eyam, in Derbyshire, it was especially wonderful for Bethan that they held their wedding at Eyam Church. A marquee reception at the family home followed the church ceremony.
Back at the house a splendid marquee awaited everyone. The marquee had been decorated by the family and particularly by Bethan who worked so hard to make it all a very personal and special day.
In keeping with the informal feel of the whole wedding, we didn’t do too many formal group photographs. Most of the photography was informal and more documentary in style. I particularly wanted to share an e-mail that I received afterwards which I think sums it up very nicely:
We are DELIGHTED!!!! You are AMAZING We really feel that you caught the whole event exactly as it was and we all relived every moment through your pictures.
I have to let you know… I had been a little anxious. I seriously thought we might be disappointed, as I just simply didn’t seem to see you taking ANY photo’s except for the more organised ones! I now have to think you are some sort of magician. Not one of us noticed how you managed to move around so swiftly to get all the shots. Your eye for detail is brilliant. We are thoroughly happy with your work! And everyone really liked having you about and chatting with you. AND you inspired little Xavier to take EXCELLENT photos too. The photos are exactly as I was hoping they would be… A job well done I say!
Kindest regards and massive appreciative hugs”.
