Details can really make a wedding - they can completely transform a venue and bring a quirky twist to your big day!
Todays post is all about this gorgeous couple who got married on Easter Sunday last year at the magnificent Sheffield City Hall. Colourful tulips brought a spring feel to a slightly rainy Sunday and there was no shortage of sunshine inside the hall with Amy's flower girls dancing around the guests and the three best men getting together for a shared speech...poor Aldo!
This was such a fun, lighthearted wedding to be a part of! Happy 1st Anniversary to Amy + Aldo!
I was so excited when I was asked to be part of this styled shoot organised by wedding planners Once Upon a Wedding with a whole team of local suppliers, including Chesterfield based Tipi & Kata. The day started with some Oh So Makeup magic for the hair and make-up on the lovely bridal model Katy, while she got to know her Groom for the day - Doug.
While Katy enjoyed some TLC in the make-up chair, perched on her lap was her puppy bridesmaid Scout, who stole everyones hearts! Scout looked even more adorable in her flower collar made by Amy at Polka Dot Florist, Ripley. Matching the purple hues of the floral arrangements around the tipi as well as the two statement bridal bouquets and crown.
Katy wore a stunning dress by Susanna Greening which was a silk embroidered, polka dot dress with special 'something blue' mixed buttons down the back. The detail of this dress was incredible and the length was perfect for this playful shoot. Doug went smart-casual in a waistcoat from Tweed and Groom with contrasting chinos.
I worked alongside the lovely Mariola Zoladz and Lukas & Laura Films which was great as we could all focus on different aspects of the shoot! Salute Prosecco bar was on hand to keep us all refreshed and provide a pretty fairy lit backdrop for the gorgeous couple.

I drove into the beautiful ground of Whirlowbrook Park up to the beautiful hall where Leanne and James would be married later that day, I was greeted by a room full of cheery bridesmaids and Leanne having her make-up done by Emma. All the Bridesmaids wore gorgeous baby pink dresses and floral head crowns to match, and Leanne's wore a stunning embellished, strapless dress and lovely sparkling accessories. The ceremony was relaxed and heartfelt, with Leanne and James smiling the whole way through!
Leanne stayed upbeat despite the drizzling rain outside whilst greeting her guests and decided she still wanted to have photos outside with her new husband so we took shelter in a woodland area. Later all guests were able to join us outside as the weather brightened up.
I joined the happy couple later in the evening for their reception, where the younger guests had already taken to the dance floor before Leanne and James performed their first dance.
