Kelham Island Museum Wedding - Kirsten & Matthew

Posted on 19th June 2017 by Mark Tierney

Kirsten and Matthew's sunny April wedding took place in Sheffield's industrial heart; at the Kelham Island Museum. This was a heart-warming occasion with a lot of smiles and an impressive bridal entrance - via an open- backed military vehicle. The bride looked very happy as she joined her bridegroom in the rustic ceremony. Her bright bouquet added some great colour to the setting.

Having exchanged their vows, the newly-weds took a short walk around the quaint cobbled streets and I took some photos both of the couple on their own and with various family members and friends. Meanwhile guests could wander around and look at the exhibits. High tea was then served with scones, sandwiches and lashings of jam and cream. It went down very well and then it was time for the speeches.

As the day grew later and the sky got darker, we went outside to take some photos in the romantic glow of the lamplights. Both Kirsten and Matthew looked very happy to now be husband and wife. Then we moved back into venue for the evening's entertainment, with round jiggling lanterns overhead, it was time to enjoy some freshly roasted meat and wedding cake. 

A giant K and M added a bit of glamour to the back drop of the first dance and their leading the way inspired others to join the dance floor. It was a beautiful marriage ceremony, followed by a lively reception. I felt honoured to be part of it and would like to wish the happy couple all the very best in their married life together.
