Michael and Lucie got married in the Peak District although their wedding was a little different to say the least...
It's not unusual for us to be photographing over 200 wedding guests as part of the wedding party. Sometimes the Chinese and Indian weddings have as many as 1000 people all dressed to the nines and ready to party. Michael and Lucie's wedding was a little smaller to say the least (i've said that before somewhere). With 16 guests attending the reception a real intimate and close vibe was created. With just the important family members and friends present it was one of our smallest weddings by far. It's only to be out done when we head off to Italy for an elopement next year!
Anyway having a smaller party meant we could spend a little more time with Michael and Lucie and hopefully get the chance to create some cracking portrait shoots.
Before we get onto the photo sessions lets start with the the place they
said 'I do' slap bang in the centre of the city. Michael and Lucie got married at Upper Chapel Church right in the middle of the city centre. After all was said and done it was time to head over to The George in Hathersage.
With a bit of a drive we decided to stop off at a few locations to get a few portrait shots. Michael runs his own graphic design company
(Flinch Design) so he had a few cool ideas of where we could get some awesome shots. Enter the graffiti filled abandoned building (homeless people included). Getting to photograph in cool locations like this is awesome, yes we know it's not your traditional wedding photo place but it makes for some really cool and different wedding shots. We just loved it.
We both think that the most important part of wedding photography is capturing photos that best represent the couple and what like/dislike. We just want to say a big thank you for taking us to such a unique and awesome place for photos.
