Grace + Darryl
In a delightful twist of wedding planning, Grace and Darryl, along with many close friends, decided to make their celebration a two-day extravaganza! As a Yorkshire wedding photographer, I was thrilled to be part of their special moments.
It all began with a heartwarming legal ceremony at Sheffield Town Hall a few days before the big party. This is becoming a popular choice amongst those tying the knot, and I’m going to delve into a few reasons why this could be beneficial to you.
At first, the decision to separate the legalities and the main celebration was a practical one. With the charming village hall at Ashover amidst the countryside and a cozy cottage booked for the weekend, they were busy with DIY preparations and wanted to avoid unnecessary back-and-forth on the big day.
As their plans evolved, they couldn’t resist indulging in the joy of spreading out the celebrations. Their first wedding day became a heartwarming gathering with close family and friends in the intimate ceremony room at the Sheffield Town Hall. Both mums were witnesses, and the day overflowed with confetti, toasts, and a delightful dinner at Silversmiths – a truly special, memorable, and unexpectedly emotional experience according to Grace 🙂 Not only did this allow them to spend quality time with their loved ones, but it also gave Grace the chance to don two fabulous outfits.
Having completed the legal formalities on the Thursday, they gained total freedom to design their dream ceremony for the main day. With a dear friend officiating and no restrictions on guest numbers or content, they exchanged personal vows, selected meaningful readings, and embraced the beauty of an outdoor setting with rolling hills and even a cricket match in the background. With everyone traveling to a single venue, every element was infused with their unique essence, making the celebration a true reflection of their love story.
And finally, let’s not forget Jasper the pooch, who was right by their side throughout the festivities! Amidst declarations of love, their beloved guests could enjoy a glass of fizz – the perfect touch to add joy to the heartfelt moments.
What made this wedding particularly special, is that Grace, Darryl and many of the people involved in the wedding are great friends of mine. Tracy at Campbells Flowers created the most incredible palette of blooms for both days. I loved the dried bouquet for the Town Hall, and the bouquets for the celebration had everyone in tears.
