Katy and Neal held their Sheffield city centre wedding at the awesome Florentine, which is a renovated manor house in Sheffield. They had their ceremony at Weston Park Museum, which was the perfect setting. It was a crisp autumnal day and thankfully the weather played ball!
Katy and Neal both got ready at The Florentine and the atmosphere was so calm. It’s always great to be able to document both the bride and the groom getting ready – a real bonus of both being in the same place the morning of the wedding. The couple then made their way separately to the ceremony. Katy travelled with her Father – who was quite teary eyed when he glimpsed her for the first time – always one of my favourite moments.
The ceremony was an intimate affair in a grand room at the historical Weston Park Museum, just outside Sheffield city centre. During the ceremony they read their own vows and it was so meaningful, a real tear-jerker. After the ceremony, the couple took some time together to take a walk around Weston Park – something I did on my own wedding day so this bought back happy memories for me!
The reception was held at The Florentine, so after the ceremony the guests made their way back there for drinks while Katy and Neal had their couple shots. The couple chose the venue because it’s so cosy and relaxed and they could have the place for the whole weekend. It was a really relaxed wedding, which are exactly the kind of weddings I like best. I love shooting relaxed weddings because they’re always so unique to the couple which always make my job more enjoyable – I love seeing things I’ve never seen before. Katy and Neal had gone to a real effort to ensure their guests had a great time with fab food and really great entertainment – what’s not to like?
After the drinks and canapés in the afternoon the couple had a great meal followed by live music from Gypsies of Bohemia in the evening. I absolutely loved the band Katy and Neal chose – they were brilliant, I found myself wanting to get down to the music (if I could actually dance!) I hope I see them again sometime soon! They decorated the venue with wildflowers and foliage, because it fitted with the time of year and coordinated with the bridesmaids lush dark green dresses. The Florentine has a lot of character but is also really great to personalise – one of my favourite venues.
