Wedding - Dale & Ashley - RingWood Hall Hotel, Chesterfield, Derbyshire

As a wedding photographer you genuinely feel blessed to be asked to photograph the weddings of great couples.  Never was that truer than with Dale & Ashley's wedding at Ringwood Hall Hotel, Derbyshire. As an added bonus it was great to have a  catch up with dale who is an old college friend of mine. 

On the homepage of my website, I try and sum up what typifies my photographic style.  The three word I use are natural, relaxed & beautiful.  I genuinely couldn’t think of three more fitting words for Dale & Ashley's wedding and indeed how amazing Ashley looked on her wedding day.  There was just an effortless charm and elegance to the whole day.

It’s been quite a while since I photographed this wedding yet my memory of it is really fresh or to be more precise my memory of Dale and Ashley, and what wonderful people they are is still very fresh in my mind. 

For the most part, my blog is pretty much were I waffle on about all the fab weddings I’ve been lucky enough to photograph, as a slight break from that tradition I’m going to leave this with a few words from Dale and Ashley and what they had to say about the experience of having me as their wedding photographer.

"Wow! the photos are incredible Chris! I'm so pleased with all your work and I'm so glad you were available on our date. Ashley's over the moon with them too. Ashley has just been telling me how nice you were in the morning while she was getting ready so I owe you the world for that because I think it really helped her cope with her nerves. Thanks again Chris Looking forward to seeing you again after the honeymoon."

..and here is the story of their wedding, a huge congratulations to both of you again.

Sheena & Nim's Wedding - Heaton House Farm, Cheshire

And off they go! 

Sheena & Nim's wedding photos are on their way to them as I write this. Not only has it been such a great pleasure to work with this wonderful couple but it has also taught me a lot along the way.


\ Thanks again to everyone involved (you know who you are! also a massive thanks to both Sheena's family as well as Nim's you all made me & scott so welcome! it really did mean the world and I hope what we have managed to capture is at least a small gesture of our appreciation for your kindness and open arms / 

Here is a few words from them...

"Chris the photos are amazing. We absolutely love them so much! 2000 photos!!! That's incredible! My dad loves the one of him taking me down the aisle the most! Just showed it to him and mum and the rest and they love them! Myself and Nimesh were just saying (and my Family) just how amazing you were on the day. You really went above and beyond and we can't ever thank you enough Chris. X"
Anyway here are a few of my favourites from the day. <3
