Peak District Wedding

As Derbyshire Wedding Photographers, it’s always lovely to work at a Peak District wedding 😍 And as locations go, you can’t beat Ilam which is the village at the bottom of Thorpe Cloud next to Dovedale.

Bridal prep & the church ceremony

The bridal preparations took place at Hall Farm Cottages in the beautiful village of Hollington, Charis and the bridesmaids had been into Ashbourne to have their hair done and then back to the cottage to have the final makeup done and to get into the dresses! Charis had chosen a gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress that suited her perfectly. Time to head to the church, not hard to find as it’s within the grounds of Ilam Hall. There was a lovely ceremony, and as the weather was amazing, we took our chance to do some photos in the grounds of the hall.

Wedding reception at Ellastone village hall

Everyone then headed back to the Village Hall in Ellastone and were greeted by the lovely Jennifer from Posh Cow Ice Cream – YUM!! Charis & Richard had popped home to collect their beloved harvester (sorry Richard I bet I’ve got that wrong – Was it a Forrester??!!) so they could make their entrance in style! Brilliant 🙂 Then it was time for a roast dinner & trifle, followed by speeches.  The weather was so lovely, everyone then headed outside to bask in the evening sunshine 🙂

After the mini-cake cut and a first dance, it was time for us to go – we had a wonderful time with Charis & Richard!! Here’s just a few of our favourite images from the day but be sure to click through to the Full Gallery at the bottom of the page! 😀
