Beth and Toms wedding at the Priest House

Wedding Photographers Butterworth Photography capturing the story of Beth and Toms wedding at the Priest House, Derbyshire

It was at short notice that I was available to shoot Beth and Toms wedding at the Priest House along with follow photographer Wayne Robinson.

Having known Beth for a good number of years it was a great honor to be able to capture the wedding day adventures to tell the story of their wedding day.

As I pulled up to Beth’s parents house I was surprised to see a friend and Becky’s Bride Philippa who’s wedding was captured earlier in the year at the Priest House.

Being a glorious sunny day bridal preparations were outside in the garden, not something I’ve been able to say a lot this year. With champagne flowing and friends chatting the time quickly passed by.

Groom Tom was also very keen to be photographed and off Wayne went to have fun capturing him and the groomsmen.

Tom and Beth were married at All Saints Church Sawley and then chauffeured by Jo from Dennisson classic cars using ‘Olivia’ a Classic White Daimler V8

On arriving at the Priest House I quickly created one of our signature Butterworth Photography images using Olivia and the picturesque grounds surrounding us and taking full advantage of the sun.

Look out for our new Butterworth Photography signature images page coming to the blog soon.

The pink and white polka dot theme was excellently created by Sarah from Tillyboo and matched with the impressive cake from Jo at Cakey Wakey.

After group shots it was down by the river to continue with capturing images with just Tom and Beth, set in a stunning location on the banks of the River Trent it was picturesque and peaceful, the Priest House Hotel was the perfect setting for this sunny wedding.

Both Tom and Beth make a beautiful couple and I’m looking forward to catching up with them next week at the Mill for their exclusive viewing of the their wedding day.

Wishing Beth and Tom all the best from the Butterworths, Neil & Becky x

Rachel and David wedding at Shottle Hall

Derby wedding photograhers Butterworth Photography capturing the story of Rachel and David’s wedding day at Shottle Hall

I met Rachel and David whilst down in London after visiting the society of wedding and portrait photographers convention in January this year, we then went to discuss their wedding day at Shottle Hall and to photograph their engagement photo’s near London’s Kew Gardens.

Half a year goes so quickly and the big day was quickly upon us, In the morning I travelled up to Chesterfield, Derbyshire to start the day with Rachel and her family to capture the story of getting ready with hair and make-up. Rachel was complete calm during bridal preparations even when it had emerged the bridesmaids accessories had been locked in the boot of one of the cars along with the keys….. after numerous attempts to break into the car the AA was called to assist, this did not work and it was left down to the trusty old brick.

With no serious delay’s we were off to the picturesque Shottle Hall to complete bridal preparations.

As Rachel added the finishing touches and the bridesmaids re-covered from the days earlier events they were all ready to be greeted by Dad who was very keen to see his beautiful daughter ready to walk down the lisle.

David during this whole time was relaxed and enjoying the time leading up to the ceremony. As Rachel and her dad walked down the aisle their smiles lit the Lounge room at Shottle Hall and the lovely ceremony began. I throughly enjoyed capturing the story of Dad with his none stop smile throughout the ceremony.

The speeches was great filled with laughter, crying, emotion and embarrassing photos. Then on to the beautiful gardens over looking the Peak District, within the picturesque Ecclesbourne Valley to capture some one to one Butterworth Photography signature images. I finished the evening with a group shot of the balloon release and first dance.

Wishing Rachel and David all the best from the Butterworths, Neil & Becky x

Sam and Dave Wedding Photography at Carriage Hall

Nottingham Carriage hall wedding photographers capturing the story as it unfolds

I started the day capturing Sam’s bridal preparation just down the road from where I live the closest I’ve ever had to travel. It was great, Sam was feeling relaxed during the morning enjoying the time being pampered.

Sam looked stunning as final preps were completed and the tears of joy from bridesmaid Laura confirmed how beautiful they all were.  Well on time Peter from Dennisons Classic Cars arrived to chuffer Sam to St John’s Church, Colston Bassett. Dave was equally impressive all suited and booted waiting for his bride to be to arrive.

The ceremony was nice and personal, it was great to see Sam & Dave smiling and looking at each other.  As it was time to leave the church and head to Nottingham’s Carriage Hall wedding venue there was one last story to capture – the confetti shot, both Sam & Dave was repeatedly fired upon.

Once arriving at Carriage hall they were greeted by bag pipes playing and drinks waiting. I managed to grab the main group shoots just before the heavens opened.

The wedding breakfast seemed to be enjoyed by all and with my sweet tooth the Eton Mess was fantastic. After the speeches we got out and about the grounds of Carriage Hall to capture some of Sam & Dave signature images.

Finally to round off such a fabulous daywe shot Sam & Dave’s first dance.

I was truly thankfully for being part of Sam & Dave’s wedding day and capturing the story of the day as the day unfolded. Becky and I wish you all the very best for the future together.

Sarah and Chris Elvaston Castle Engagement Photography

Engagement photography in Elvaston Castle Country Park, Derbyshire

There seems to be a re-occurring theme these last few weeks to capturing my engagement shoots, rain, rain and more rain, however this trend does not follow me to the wedding days. My fingers are crossed that this continues!

I came prepared with my two umbrella’s and a lot of enthusiasm which was equally matched by Sarah and Chris, Chris was so excited to have his photo taken. We all continued to walk, talk and capture images using the picturesque woodlands, parkland and formal gardens as cover.

I get so excited capturing engagement portrait sessions and having the freedom to have fun photographing couples enjoying themselves.

It’s always nice to receive an email knowing ours couples really enjoyed themselves too …..

“Just wanted to say thank you for yesterday! We really enjoyed our engagement shoot, even though it rained the whole time!! We felt really relaxed and had a great time! Can’t wait to see the photos and really can’t wait for our wedding day! see you soon!

Sarah and Chris xxx”

Erin and Pete's Dovedale Engagement Photography

Engagement Photography In Dovedale, Derbyshire

As a wedding photographer in the UK the weather is always going to challenge you to deliver great images in the cold, wet, windy, snowy months and it’s spring after all. The key is to have fun and enjoy yourselves.

When I meet with Erin and Pete last year and they decided to book me for their 2012 summer wedding I was delighted to be involved.  I captured their engagement shoot a few weeks ago the day after the hard snow fall. We headed to Dovedale in Derbyshire and walked along the stepping stones, the mountains were covered in snow however the ground was clear  with some nice sunshine yet freezing cold water.   This did not stop Erin and Peter taking a dip in the water and having a splash, mainly splashing in the direction of Pete.

The action did not stop there Pete tried to climb every hill top with various degrees of success but in between the fun you can see the love they both share for each other and the special day I feel glad to be part of. Roll on their wedding day at Shottle Hall

Here’s a small selection of my favourite images from Erin & Pete’s engagement photo’s from Dovedale. Please feel free to comment and share on your social networks.
