Youlgrave All Saints Church / Gratton Grange Farm
Saturday 29th June 2019
A rustic Wedding in Derbyshire, a goat, on a farm with a Narnia styled wardrobe…. and a Drag Queen…..oh go on then! Welcome to the wedding day of James and Nicola.
I arrived at Gratton Grange Farm in Derbyshire on what was given as the hottest day of the year to find Nicola in the cottage at the venue just finishing off her hair. Lewis cracked open the Prosecco and there was laughter all round. It was then time for Nic to be helped into her dress and walked down the stairs for a big reveal to her dad which was priceless.
I headed over to Youlgrave All Saints Church and headed inside to meet up with James and his groomsmen. James was extremely cool and calm and looking very dappa indeed. After a brief chat, we awaited the arrival of Nicola.
As she arrived at church in a very classy Humber car, she looked absolutely beautiful and after a quick kiss from dad, she went into church and walked towards James. It was a magical moment as their eyes met and one I loved capturing.
A lovely ceremony was then followed by some pictures and a confetti tunnel and then it was back off Gratton Grange Farm.
The venue looked amazing, it had been decorated over the last week by James and Nicola. Watching the guests reaction as they entered the barn was priceless and having to walk through the wardrobe ‘Narnia style’ was genius!
An awesome Drag act got the blood pumping (especially for a few guys as the act got going) and then some great evening pics made this a real day to remember!
What a great day!! Loved it………….I wish you both all the best…… Matt
