You shouldn’t really have favourite weddings, and I obviously don’t, but if I did, this one would be up there.
I met Jess & Lee at a little wedding fair where only two couples turned up all day (ego boost here, they both booked me!) so these guys made that very dull day well worthwhile. After chatting about our shared love of cycling and Lee telling me about all his planed adventures on the back of his bike I was hopeful we’d be a good match, and so it proved.
Their big day started in Sheffield city centre where Jess and her bridesmaids crammed into a small hotel room for some giggles, prosecco and the biggest bacon sandwiches you’ve ever seen. In true laid back groom style, Lee got suited and booted and headed down to his favourite coffee shop and then to the pub, why not hey.
A short walk through the centre of a wintery Sheffield, dress blowing in the wind and Jess looking magnificent, we arrived at Sheffield Town Hall. A Christmas brass band outside who soon stopped whatever tune they were making the city groove to and started up a rendition of “Here Comes The Bride’ as Jess and her troop headed inside into the warm made it feel extra special.
Once the ‘I do’s’ were completed we all piled into the vintage bus waiting for us outside. A stunning drive through the Peaks to the little village of Baslow followed, where they’d transformed the local village hall into the cutest wedding day set up you’ve seen. Bunting, fairy lights, an afternoon tea complete with vintage china tea cups, along with a bit of Christmas cheer and the evening party was ready to go.
Really, these guys knew how to party! Taking to the stage of the hall for their first dance, everyone soon joined them to dance the night away to whatever Indie tune blasted its way through the speakers next, only stopping briefly when the pizza van arrived to fill a few empty stomachs.
This was a great day, with great people who made some amazing memories for themselves, and for me. Thanks guys, you rock!
