Sheffield Town Hall & Leopold Hotel, Sheffield - Martyn & Sue

Posted on 27th March 2014 by Mark Tierney

Martyn and Sue's wedding at Sheffield Town Hall was an unconventional affair, but a very beautiful one. Not only did the bride looked stunning in black (and plenty of bling), as opposed to white, but the couple also preferred to meet outside the ceremony venue, rather than at the traditional end of the aisle.

Arriving on foot with two bridesmaids in tow, Sue greeted all her guests and fiancé outside the building, before making her way inside. The bride's father walked her down the aisle and as Martyn and Sue said their vows, they appeared happy and relaxed. Their guests gave them a huge round of applause at the end of the ceremony.

Given that Sue made a second journey on foot across town following the marriage, it turned out to be quite an athletic day for the bride! Obviously the second time she was accompanied by her new husband, who looked very dapper in a dark grey suit and striking lily buttonhole. The couple posed for pictures next to various Sheffield establishments on their way to the Leopold Hotel, where the reception was due to be held.

At the hotel, rainbow bunting had been hung over the fountains in the courtyard, giving the venue an unmistakeable party atmosphere. The dining room was dramatically clad in red and black and unusual skull-patterned table favours added to the originality of the day. Martyn and Sue are clearly a couple unafraid to stand out from the crowd and the result of their creative wedding planning made for an elegantly-styled, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable day!
