The views from Maïlys and Tom’s Peak District wedding are breathtaking. Married at Dunscar Farm, this gorgeous pair had a relaxed day with a DIY vibe – and it’s stunning. Their Peak District wedding photographer John Mottershaw is a friend of English Wedding so we’re absolutely thrilled to see such a lovely review for him from the happy couple!

Wedding photographer review

My husband and I were so happy with John as our wedding photographer. He was so professional and easy to work with, and he made us feel really comfortable in front of the camera. We loved that he took a lot of candid pictures, so we were able to capture the real emotions of the day. The end results were absolutely stunning, and we will cherish these photos forever.

Your best moment or memory

The outdoor ceremony was truly special, and the bridesmaids’ and best men’s speeches made it all the more emotional. It was a joy to celebrate with everyone on this special day.

Tell us anything you did differently – we love hearing about NEW traditions (or none at all!)

We had our official wedding ceremony at the town hall on Thursday, so it didn’t make sense to exchange rings again on Saturday. Instead, we incorporated a knot tying ceremony into our celebration. Also because the wedding was part French part English we changed few things to fit both.

Venue name + review

Dunscar Farm

Our Peak District wedding venue was a field with a breathtaking view. Rachel, was ever so helpful and cheerful, serving as our wedding planner on the day. We are so grateful for her and her father’s kindness and hospitality. It was a pleasure to stay at their bed and breakfast.

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

Any crafty projects or homemade styling touches?

There was a fair bit of DIY. I made the table decorations with painted tree branches and flowers. Every guest had a hand made reusable glass with their names on it.

Wedding readings?

We had our vows for each other and then the bridesmaids’ and best men’s speeches. We wanted to have all the speeches early so people could relax and enjoy the rest of the wedding.

First dance song? Playlist recommendations?
