Charlotte and Jamie organised the most beautiful Farm Cottage DIY Sailcloth Sperry Tent Wedding at Haddon Grove Farm Cottages in the Peak District, just outside Bakewell. With their ceremony at the impressive All Saints Church, Youlgrave.
Transport was provided by the wonderful Doris the Morris and Kristen who picked a great place to stop on the route back for a few couples photos with the cute car, allowing all the guests to arrive before C&J who entered through the cottage gates to huge cheers.
Following a relaxed drinks reception in courtyard gardens and a few close family group photos. Charlotte’s Dad rang the bell for dinner and the guests meandered up the field towards the beautiful Sailcloth tent. What a perfect spot for a Wedding reception, with stunning views across the Derbyshire hills. Food was sharing platters of starters and desserts. Main course was a massive paella cooked on site outside. The evening food, wood fired pizza served out of a mini fiat.
All the details and decorations had been designed and made by Charlotte and Jamie and their families. Gingerbread men favours, the Sheffield pub’s table plan, a home made photo booth, bunting, pallets with displays of family, old photos gin bottles with lights leading the pathway to the marquee. The whole day was a team effort.
My highlight of the evening, the surprise entrance of Back Chat Brass! I couldn’t quite picture a brass band playing at a Wedding reception before seeing it BUT…. It was amazing, every Wedding should have one!! All the guests were up dancing and conga-ing!! What a day to photograph!
“Thank you so so much for the photos and the video! We absolutely love them – you captured our day perfectly. We cannot stop looking at them! The song that accompanies the video is just so spot on as well. We love the advice you sent with me the email by the way – it was a lovely final touch and we stuck to your advice, and shared a nice bottle of wine (hence why Jamie accidentally sent you an email that was meant for his brother!) Thank you so much again for being such a special part of our day.” Charlotte & Jamie
