Darley Dale Church & Thornbridge Hall Wedding - Liz & Patrick

Posted on 25th January 2017 by Mark Tierney

The weather may not have been kind to Liz and Patrick, but their colourful wedding certainly brightened the day. The ceremony took place at Darley Dale Church, which had a handy hedge outside to provide shelter for the bridesmaids!

With its cosy atmosphere, two tremendous readings and a wonderful couple exchanging their vows in front of friends and family, this was truly a heart-melting occasion. Afterwards, the rain stopped long enough for the wedding guests to form a long line through the church gardens, down which the happy couple made their way, being showered with confetti from every angle as they did so.

The reception venue was just a short drive away, at the very picturesque Thornbridge Hall. Drinks and canapés were served both inside and out, as we took a few group photographs. The skies darkened a little then and it made sense to take some couple shots against the dramatic backdrop. Liz, Patrick and I wandered around the grounds of the hall, discovering beautifully manicured gardens and an ornate bench, perfect for two newly-weds.

Back inside, everyone enjoyed a lavish wedding breakfast, complete with magnificent cheese wheel before it was time for the speeches, the cutting of the towering cake and a disco.

Not only was it obvious that a great time had been enjoyed by all, but also, that this is a couple who can't stop grinning at one another. I definitely think this bodes well for their future together and I'd like to wish them all the very best!
