Will and Philippa’s wedding took place on a clear, crisp November at Trafalgar Warehouse – a really cool 1930s industrial venue in the centre of Sheffield. Philippa arrived wearing a gorgeous floor-length peach wedding dress, and looked very elegant as she walked into the room, which was decorated in greens and whites.
The ceremony was lovely. My favourite moment (and photo) is of the newlyweds literally dancing down the aisle after saying their vows. You could tell from their faces they were having a great time. I also enjoyed taking the couple’s photos on Division Street in the city’s Devonshire Quarter with the autumnal trees and colours in the background.
If I had to steal one idea from this wedding it would be the buffet! Everyone brought their own dishes and shared, which I think is a fantastic idea. And, in keeping with the quirkiness of the day, Will had SEVEN best men (because he couldn’t choose just one out of his friends), so there were a lot of speeches about the groom! They each chose a theme, based on the seven deadly sins, which was certainly unique and a lot of fun.
The huge space in the Trafalgar Warehouse is quite something. The aesthetics of the room were really great to capture, and the fun energy that Philippa and Will had was a pleasure to photograph, too. I especially liked the way the couple had decorated it – completely DIY – which made the space look amazing. It was such a fun and happy day, and I wish Will and Philippa lots of happiness for the future.
