Ticknall Village Hall Wedding

“The memories of each moment come straight back to us when we look at our photos!”

Travelling all over the UK and Europe to shoot weddings is amazing, and I love the excitement and adventure, but I’ve also got a huge soft spot for local weddings. So it was great when Hannah and Andy emailed me to say that they were getting married at Long Whatton followed by a wedding reception at Ticknall Village Hall and they wanted me to document their big day. And Hannah was getting ready at Harpur’s, a boutique hotel and restaurant in my hometown of Melbourne in South Derbyshire. It doesn’t get much more local than that!

Boutique Hotel for Bridal Preparations

As well as being our favourite pub and restaurant to visit, Harpur’s in Melbourne is also a boutique hotel with gorgeous rooms. Perfect if you’re looking for somewhere in South Derbyshire for your bridal preparations. As Hannah lived in Melbourne at the time, it was the obvious choice for her, as Long Whatton is just 10 minutes drive away.

Wedding Ceremony at Long Whatton Church

Set in the picturesque village of Long Whatton in Leicestershire, the parish church was a lovely setting for Hannah & Andy’s nuptials. After the ceremony, there were light refreshments at the church, and it was great seeing everyone mingling in the church grounds enjoying a cuppa and some cake. It rains a lot here in the UK, but when Summer is on form, you can’t beat it!

Ticknall Village Hall Wedding Photographer

The village hall in Ticknall is a great venue if you’re looking for a small, blank canvas to decorate and style as you like it. And these guys made a great job of it. I had a fantastic time capturing their wedding in my own style of natural and unposed wedding photography. No stopping the flow of the day, just documenting the moments as they happen. This meant that Hannah and Andy could enjoy their wedding day without stopping and posing for photos.

Thanks to these fab folks for helping to make their wedding day extra special!
