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.

Here are a few of my fav shots –

I started the day by joining Janette and family at her parent’s house, a place I’ve visited many times during my life. It was lovely to be asked by Janette (my first cousin, once removed) and Phil, to visually tell the story of their special day.  Simon, Janette’s brother, helped us out on the day too (when he wasn’t playing in the band)!

The ceremony took place at Community of Christ in Sutton-in-Ashfield, followed by a reception at Woodborough Hall.

Here a selection of photos from the day –
