The morning of her wedding found Lauren at her childhood home surrounded by family and friends. Mirrors were shared and helping hands were given as bridesmaids and bride prepared for the big day.
It was quickly time for the short drive (in a wedding dress friendly Range Rover) to the beautiful St. Giles
where husband-to-be, Philip, and guests were waiting.
A ceremony full of smiles, laughter and song was a delight to capture, in no small part from being allowed free movement by the presiding Father Mark. Thank you!
Then it was the traditional run through the confetti and back to the wedding car for the newly weds as they were whisked away to the Darley Dale Cricket Club
for the wedding reception, held in Peak Tipis
absolutely stunning 3 Giant Kata tipi where the Bride and Groom hosted a lovely afternoon tea.
As the sun started to drop, and the time for couple portraits neared, Mother Nature decided to throw quite a lot of rain at us. More than even the extremely pretty Peakography wedding brolly could cope with, so a cunning plan was hatched. We headed for the Victorian splendor of Matlock train station and captured some rather stunning images. Just as we were heading back to the car, the rain stopped, so we quickly headed up onto Beeley Moor to utilise the last light of day and soak up the sunset.
Once back at the tipi, it was time for dancing, cake cutting, hog roast and more dancing!
This was such a fun day to capture, thank you to Lauren and Philip for having me along.
