Beautiful summertime wedding set in the tiny village of Youlgreave at All Saints Church. The weather may not have been at its best but everyone was in good spirits awaiting the arrival of the beautiful Rebecca. She didn’t disappoint… wearing her gorgeous lace overlayed aline gown designed by Pronuptia with a Mauve rose in her tousled locks she was every bit the beautiful bride. It had been Rebecca’s intention to walk across the fields from her parent’s lodge to the church 😦 unfortunately the rain had other plans so in a car she arrived – smiling all the time.
A beautiful ceremony was given and it was lovely to work alongside photographer Andrew Billington. The church and venue were a first for us but hopefully not the last. After the ceremony the couple and their guests headed to Brosterfield Farm in Foolow near Bakewell. This is a fantastic venue where pretty much the bride has control as it is very much a DIY venue with the option for wedding Yurts/Marquees. There are guest lodges so it does boast accommodation and it is a lovely venue with sights right across the Derbyshire countryside. Simply Stunning. The guests were to enjoy a vintage inspired tea party with sandwiches, cakes and scones with tea/coffee served in china tea cups. There was also traditional ginger beer and cloudy lemonade available. Icecream was on hand just outside the marquee where despite the wind and rain, huge queues formed. Later on that evening there was to be a hog roast and once the rain had died away, children and adults alike held spacehopper racing competitions. We even managed to get Rebecca and Michael to sit on one of the double spacehoppers although they did not race – in that dress I shouldn’t think so!
All in all a beautiful and elegant wedding that oozed sophistication from start to finish and one that we thoroughly enjoyed
Thanks again to Andrew Billington for being fab to work with and just to add his work is stunning….
