Upper Chapel Sheffield, Silversmiths & Yellow Arch Studios - Helen & John

Posted on 30th April 2016 by Mark Tierney

Helen and John's wedding was almost cinematic in its visual appeal. The couple's Sheffield themed big day began emotionally in the Leopold Hotel and ended emotionally in the Yellow Arch Studios. They'd opted for a beautiful retro vibe which looked stunning against their grand ceremony venue; the Upper Chapel Church.

After a very moving exchange of vows I took a few photos of the couple outside in a shower of confetti with their guests around them, before whisking them into the centre of the city from some urban shots and around the gardens for some greenery shots. The sun behaved fittingly!

Then it was time for the wedding breakfast. The newlyweds met at the Sheffield Tramlines festival and bonded over a shared love of music. Not only was this strong musical connection reflected in their decor, but also in their first dance, which was probably one of the best first dances I've ever seen. John and Helen danced very energetically to a tune performed by a 12 piece ska band. Who said a song has to be slow to be romantic - a couple this in sync with one another, were meant to be together!

I was thrilled to have been part of this wedding and I'd like to raise a glass to the happy couple. (I probably wouldn't dare challenge either of them to a dance-off though!) All the very best to Helen and John.
