The Leopold Hotel & The Chimney House Wedding Photography - Tracey & Glenn

Posted on 16th April 2013 by Mark Tierney

This was one cool wedding located at three different  Sheffield venues. Tracey and Glenn were married at Leopold Hotel which was formerly the Sheffield Central Technical School. Following the ceremony, the wedding party travelled by vintage bus to The Chimney House  a grade II listed building in Sheffield's old industrial heartland of Kelham Island. As you can see from the images this is a unique building and location for a such an occasion. In World War 1 The Chimney House was even home to Sarah the elephant! She was used to lift and roll parts for armaments production in the rolling mills. Following the candle-lit wedding reception the wedding party made their way to Platillo's in the centre of Sheffield for an evening of live music.
Quite a few of the guests including the groom himself are musicians and his friend  Richard Hawley - the guitarist, singer-songwriter and producer was also at the wedding. Richard was nominated for Best Male Artist Nominee at the Brit Award this year & also has a Mercury Prize shortlisted album too. The evening started off  with Harry Crawley he is the country's leading Dean Martin tribute act he has been featured in the Nescafe advert on TV.  Next up was The funk band was Montuno and finishing the night off was The soul band The G-Men. Here are some of my favourites from this very enjoyable stylish quirky wedding.
