A cloudy & cool September day hosted the Ilkeston, Derbyshire wedding of Lucy & Adam. After 5 years together they tied the knot at St. Mary’s Church, Denby, before celebrating the day in Ilkeston. The evening do actually took place in the back garden of Lucy’s parents’ house, since they had plenty of land. A marquee had been hired out on to their (pretty much literally) door step. It looked wonderful inside with plenty of rustic and outdoorsy decorations, and flower wreaths hanging from the ceiling. Outside were bales of hay topped with blankets, which made for comfy seats. There was also a big, white bouncy castle and decorative white & pink paper lanterns hanging from a tree. The entire place looked so pretty!
Lucy got ready in to a beautiful long, white dress from Brides & Gowns, accompanied by her bridesmaids in pink. Adam was suited in dark blue 3-piece, styled nicely with a floral tie, as were his groomsmen.
The St. Mary’s church ceremony was lovely, with a few readings being had and some hymns sang by the concession. Lucy walked down the aisle arm-in-arm with her dad to the traditional Wagner Bridal March, and left with her new husband. Guests lined up outside the St. Mary’s Church gates to shower the newlyweds with handfuls of dried flower petal confetti.
Upon arriving back at the marquee, we took a little time at the field next door and snapped plenty of photos of the newlyweds looking all loved up. The Yorkshire countryside backdrop was perfect. We also took some photos with the Lucy & Adam’s newest family member – their chocolate labrador puppy Molly! She made a short and excitable appearance, donning a super cute flower collar. Group photos took place underneath the tree with hanging lanterns, and looked lovely as the pink & white lanterns totally matched the bridal party. I’m not sure if this was intentional or not, but it looked fab.
The father of the bride kicked off the speeches with some lovely words about his daughter and new son-in-law. Later on Adam added to the kind words in his speech, following by an obligatory grilling by his best man. The rest of the evening included having a some silly fun on the white bouncy castle. Lots of shots, shots, shots, cake cutting, dancing, photobooth fun and a fabulous sparkler send off. ✨
