A handcrafted wedding in a Sheffield barn

I met Sarah and Dave at their home over a year and a half ago. We drank tea and talked all about their wedding plans, how they met and what they did. We just clicked and I knew this wedding was going to be awesome! Little did I know just how awesome it would be. Full of fun, surprises and wonderful people.

As I spent more time with them on their engagement shoot and in planning their day it was clear that they wanted to make sure their guests had the best time. They are a couple who love to spend time with friends and care deeply about their family.

It was my favourite type of wedding with lots of homemade decorations, friends and family chipping in with cake and dancing and music and all held at Whirlow Hall Farm. This venue is great for those with a large guest list as it can take up to 300 people and the space is so versatile.

Sarah and Dave were married in the beautiful Ecclesall Parish Church where the pews were packed with friends and family excited to be witnessing the couple make their vows to each other. The atmosphere throughout the ceremony and afterwards as everyone chatted outside the church was jubilant and as the guests started to wend their way to Whirlow Hall Farm, the couple got to have a little bit of time just the two of them (and me!) as we went to do some gorgeous portraits in the Peaks.

I do love my food and it is worth mentioning how yummy the wedding food was. It was simple yet hearty and delicious – big jacket potatoes with the most scrumptious toppings (I divided mine in four and had one of every topping!). The fairy lights sparkled in the muted light of the barn and the guests were buzzing after spending time outside with welcome drinks and entertainment.

The wedding reception included Morris dancing, Irish dancing, a Cèilidh and speeches that didn’t leave many dry eyes in the barn. As always, I found it so hard to narrow down just a few photos to give a flavour of the day.
