Roisin and Paul got married at the awesome Yellow Arch, Sheffield, in March a couple of years back (I just never blogged it on my old website – so thought it was right to add it to my new rebranded website!) It was a super fun inner city wedding with tea-lights on the tables and wildflowers everywhere.
Roisin got ready at home with her bridesmaids, and there was such a relaxed vibe. She wore a Sassi Holford gown and looked so incredible. The bride then travelled with her father the short distance to get to the ceremony. As they made their way to Yellow Arch, the first flakes of snow began to fall from the sky – this wouldn’t be the last we saw of the snow!
The ceremony took place at Yellow Arch just outside Sheffield City Centre. The ceremony area was filled with flowers, which was just stunning and really gave a wedding vibe to the blank canvas of the room. The ceremony began with the couple reading their own vows and finished with a dramatic first kiss. It was a moving ceremony, full of emotion and so much love.
After the ceremony, we took some time out for photos, which is such a great time for the newly married couple to have some time to let it sink in. Then the couple mingled with their guests, which was the perfect time for me to get out of the way document the day. I got some really special photos of the couple against the urban landscape of the Kelham Island area, a great part of Sheffield city centre. The couple also made the most of the fact it was snowing, which really added to their photographs.
Roisin and Paul chose to have their wedding at Yellow Arch because it has so many options and it’s so relaxed. Yellow Arch is an industrial venue with a warehouse feel, it’s got a really understated vibe, especially outdoors in the red brick courtyard and the main rooms are perfect for when the party gets started.
For the reception, the couple had planned a range of different street foods and locally brewed beers for their guests, and everyone loved it – the food was amazing, especially the poutine which I had never had before! They had speeches after the food, which were really fun – especially the Groom performing a song from Top Gun to his new bride!
After the speeches, the band started up to get the party started! The live band kept everyone entertained all evening. Yellow Arch is the perfect venue for live bands and this was a great part of the wedding.
The evening ended with a lot of snow, which was completely unexpected and meant many guests struggled to leave – which added to the party! The whole day was everything I love about weddings, from the bride’s awesome dress to the wonderful speeches. I loved how Roisin and Paul just embraced the weather and had the best time with their friends and family. One of the best moments of the wedding were the vows that they had written themselves, because it was totally clear how right for each other the couple are. The food was also a talking point of the wedding – from the poutine to the ice cream to the cheese – everyone was really spoilt for choice!
I loved this Sheffield city wedding so much. If you’re getting married and looking for a Yellow Arch wedding photographer, get in touch. Here are the photos!
