Kelham Island Museum Wedding - Katherine & Jamie

Posted on 18th May 2017 by Mark Tierney

Katherine and Jamie were married in a haze of lilac and white flowers at the Kelham Island Museum, a celebratory showcase building depicting artefacts from Sheffield's industrial history. From its opening moments to its touching first dance finale, this was a wedding that had all the hallmarks of a heartwarming and very moving occasion. The fact that the bride and groom couldn't keep their eyes off one another, or that they wore their smiles all day long, made it all the more happier.

Following the ceremony photos, we took to the streets outside the museum to grab some cultural backdrop, unique to Sheffield. There was a real mid-20th century vibe to the area, especially when the newlyweds walked under the bunting-covered streets.

We took a few more couple shots in the museum itself while guests wondered around looking at the exhibits. Then, it was time for the wedding breakfast in a beautifully decorated reception room. A giant cheese wheel, covered in picturesque flowers and greenery deserves a special mention, as do all the children who were present, whose contribution to the fun atmosphere was invaluable. It was clear that everyone, young and old, were thoroughly enjoying themselves.

After the speeches, we couldn't miss the opportunity to take a few photos outside in a dusk brightened by nearby neon signs, before heading inside for an evening of music and dancing. This was a marriage and a couple whose obvious connection caused a real feel-good factor throughout the day. I'd like to raise a glass in their joyous direction and wish them all the very best in their future together.
