Wortley Hall Wedding
Margaret and Alison had a relaxed wedding day at Wortley Hall Hotel in Sheffield.
I met Margaret and Alison at Wortley Hall on the morning of their wedding. All through their preparations they’d been insistent that the aim of their wedding day (other than to end it married to each other) was to provide a relaxed space for everyone involved. It was absolutely everything they wanted.
We started the day with some couples portraits as guests started to arrive, followed by some natural shots of guests in the terraced area of Wortley Hall enjoying a drink in the sunshine. There was no dress code, so guests were able to alter their outfits for the hot weather. The couple also dressed for the weather - Margaret chose to wear a blue and white summer dress with sandals, while Alison opted for a cool shirt and trousers. There were no bouquets or buttonholes, just glasses of champagne!
The decorations inside were bright and gorgeous. Yellow chiffon bows were tied on the white chair covers in both the ceremony room and wedding breakfast space. The flowers were bright oranges, greens and yellows – and they were huge! The colours completely lifted the rooms and were perfect for these two.
Instead of walking separately, Margaret and Alison walked down the aisle together. Their family friend played some of their favourite songs throughout the ceremony, it was completely full of love and personal touches.
After capturing some group shots and going on a slightly longer walk around the grounds of Wortley Hall, it was time for the wedding breakfast and speeches. It was so lovely to hear what family and friends had to say about this amazing couple, along with some funny stories of them both.
When everyone had finished the wedding breakfast we headed into the ballroom for the evening reception. The dancefloor was full all evening, with more live music entertaining everyone. The icing on the cake has to be the confetti canon! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a couple smile as much as Margaret and Alison did at this wedding, and it was a true joy to be part of.
