gay wedding at the White Hart Inn, Moorwood Moor, Chesterfield



Ben and Joe are a fantastic couple – super chilled and laid back, both full of personality and both good lookers – all the traits to help a wedding photographers job a lot easier. Not to mention they were getting married at one of my favourite venues in Derbyshire – the White Hart Inn, Moorwood Moor.

Ben and Joe had everything planned many months before the big day and the only person that could potentially ruin things was Boris. Luckily, this didn’t happen and they could have the wedding that they had dreamed about.


The venue and staff were under the watchful eye of Millie the wedding coordinator as I arrived, I had a quick stroll around and the place was running smoothly as always. I then went to find Ben and Joe in the marquee on the back lawn of the venue with a few of their wedding party. The new marquee is a lovely addition for The White Hart, especially as this wedding was planned for one of the hottest days of the year!

The venue had been incredibly decorated by Inspired Hire in Belper and as I took a walk around with Ben and Joe, the flowers by Conservatory Florists arrived looking amazing and set the venue off perfectly.

The grooms got ready together which was a nice little change to most weddings, and a short time later, the boys were ready and looking fantastic in some beautiful, smart suits. The grooms then headed out to meet some of their wedding guests as they arrived in the scorching summer sunshine. 

The ceremony was perfect and the room was full of tears, smiles and laughter. Ben and Joe looked elated and it was such a pleasure to be able to capture those moments……well, apart from Jacob whose nose started bleed mid ceremony!

My brief set by the couple was simple – capture candid, happy moments and have fun. Well, every where I turned I saw such happiness and love – awesome memories created that were long awaited after such a rough year for everyone. It was then onto a fantastic reception on a hot summers evening.

An all round beautiful wedding and I loved being part of…. thanks boys!!

I wish you both all the best
