Words aren’t really enough sometimes… today’s wedding is more beautiful than any dictionary could ever define: a glorious celebration in fabulous style. Bryony and Richard were married at Hassop Hall in the autumn, and their day is breathtaking.
Images are by Sheffield wedding photographer John Mottershaw, who told me this wedding is one he’ll remember for its colours: “Autumn colours in beautiful sunshine combined with the slightly unusual colours of their outfits (Bryony made her own dress) all worked together to make this wedding a visual treat. A good looking, fun couple, Bryony and Richard were great to work with.”

My family is from Derbyshire and so I know the wonderful contours of the Peak District rather well… and it’s one of the loveliest parts of England to be married: the mountains and moorlands are an incredible place to explore. Bryony and Richard were married at Hathersage Church and held their reception at Hassop Hall – one of my favourite Derbyshire wedding venues.
“Hathersage Church, alleged resting place of Robin Hood’s fellow outlaw Little John, has a beautiful rural feel. Hassop Hall itself is a very fine venue, especially the grand ballroom where Bryony and Richard’s reception was held. I shoot there quite regularly and never tire of the very photogenic and varied gardens. Even on a wet day it works beautifully. On a warm dry day guests enjoy drinks outside in front of the house with great views out on to the fields and hills in the background.” ~ John Mottershaw Photography
