Jodie and Tom’s beautiful wedding should have taken place in that confusing and frustrating first year of the pandemic, 2020. But there’s an argument to be had that the ceremony was all the more special because of it. Yes, it was frustrating for the bride and groom to keep moving dates and venues, as well the effect government guidelines had on the amount of guests who could attend, but the resulting day was a memorable one.
The couple exchanged their vows in Ecclesfield Church in Sheffield, during an emotionally-charged ceremony. It was a wedding against the odds, and a case of love wins out overall. A great moment to capture! Once Tom and Jodie had officially tied the knot, I took a few bride and groom portraits in the entrance of the Church; a truly stunning building, then we did some group shots outside. It’s such a picturesque setting, we wanted to make the most of it.
The reception was then held at the S17 Coffee Shop and Bistro, their first ever wedding celebration. The venue was exquisitely decorated, and the day was warm enough for guests to sit at tables and chairs on the pavement outside. It was a great location for a fun, loud, wedding party, and a celebration of Jodie and Tom’s love. Plus having dancing on a public street, accompanied by the wedding singer, and one of the bridesmaids, felt really original and moving. It was a joyous moment, set in an odd historical context, that made it very memorable indeed.
All in all, a fantastic wedding, full of happiness and celebration, at a time when it was most needed. Wishing you a bright and happy future together. Jodie and Tom.
