I’m WAY behind on blog posts from weddings I covered earlier this year. Here’s Sarah and Tom’s fantastic day back in August.

To say I’d been looking forward to their special day would be a huge understatement. Saran and Tom are a fabulous couple who had big plans on how they’d like their day celebrated. As soon as they told me they had organised a tipi for the wedding breakfast my face must have lit up.

After the initial ceremony at the beautiful Baslow church, we moved onto Hollowgate Farm for a spectacular wedding breakfast and party in a trio complex of tipis – magical!

It was a joy to be accompanied by our good friend and wonderfully talented photographer, Simon, throughout the day. We had a blast documenting the day.

It was a fantastic wedding, celebration and party. Hope you enjoy the story!

I’m so reluctant to divulge the location of Roanna and Phil’s pre-wed shoot.  It was a magical place identified by Roanna and Phil themselves. We took a short walk from a narrow country road, close to Brackenfield in Derbyshire, up a hill and through a field until we came to a wooded area. Phil used to play in this area during his childhood, he knew it like the back of his hand.  After a short while walking through the trees we came to an abandoned 14th century church. It was quite late in the afternoon, just as the sun was starting to drop in the sky, producing a beautiful golden glow to the whole place. I was in my element. A fantastic couple who were relaxed in front of the camera, needing no direction from me. I hope Roanna and Phil had as much fun at the shoot as I did.
