Today’s wedding is beautifully simple, classic and elegant. Katherine and Scott make such a charming couple – their style is honest and timeless, and their wedding uses flowers to create a really romantic and summery atmosphere.
The images are stunning: they’re by Peak District wedding photographer John Mottershaw, who shares a glowing review from the happy couple (at the end of the feature). Discover more from lovely John here:

Katherine and Scott have been together for many years. They really were meant to be! That just shone out throughout the day. Such a lovely couple and family to work with.
As a photographer I adore beautiful light and the sunlight on that day in early June was possibly the most gorgeous I’ve ever seen. The colours and the sunshine were sublime, particularly in the morning, and it really was the perfect day for a wedding and for a wedding photographer.
The flowers were astonishing. So many beautiful flowers! A family friend had sorted the flowers but I know that they are something very important to Kath as she works in the family nursery business, started by her father many years ago.
St James’ chuch in Taxal is a little gem, hidden away down a tiny rural lane. Shrigley Hall however is rather grand, with wonderful views across its own golf course and over the Cheshire Peak District landscape. The wedding breakfast took place in the Tilden Suite, a converted 18th century chapel with a striking dome roof that lends itself perfectly to a wedding reception.
“Our photos are fantastic, we love them. You have exceeded any expectations we ever had…
From the moment you arrived at my parents’ house in the morning you set all my bridesmaids at ease. Half of the photos I have seen, I didn’t even know you were there.
I love the unposed ones.
You have captured some lovely moments throughout the whole day, which Scott and I can look at and remember that wonderful day.”
