Sarah and Jim got married at Sheffield Town Hall before taking their wedding party on a tour of Sheffield City Centre, taking in not one but two great venues. This was such a fab wedding with so many unique elements – I had a great day.

Sarah got ready at the super chic Leopold Hotel before taking the short walk to the Town Hall with her Mum, Dad and two bridesmaids. The ceremony took place in the Hallam Room, one of my favourites as it is light and bright. The ceremony included the couple reading their own vows, watched carefully by their young son. It was a joyous occasion, full of nervous giggles and belly laughs.

After the ceremony, we took some time out for photos in the Winter Gardens. There was live music playing and the wedding party all had a bit of a boogie. I was able to get some great, candid shots of the couple dancing with each other which was great, really natural. The weather at this city centre wedding was so sunny, it was a beautiful day and everyone enjoyed strolling down to Silversmiths in the sunshine, with music accompaniment from Sarah’s old skool ghetto blaster.

The reception was held in Silversmiths, one of Sheffield’s oldest and finest restaurants. This rustic, redbrick venue is perfect for weddings because it’s so cosy and relaxed, and it’s got such an awesome vibe, especially in the main room when the room is full of people having a great party.

The guests enjoyed a slap up lunch which was followed by hilarious speeches and a Yorkshire Quiz which everyone really enjoyed.

The wedding party then moved on again to Triple Point Brewery in Sheffield where the party really got started. The couple surprised everyone with a brass band playing outside in the yard and everyone was really enjoying dancing in the sunshine, drink in hand. The atmosphere was fantastic.

The couple had also arranged a cake competition with prizes to be won and a surprise first dance which went down a storm.

Just as the sun was starting to set, I whizzed Sarah and Jim up to Sky Edge – a fantastic spot in Sheffield with panoramic views of the city centre and we got some pretty epic shots with the city skyline which I was overjoyed with and the couple will treasure forever.

The evening ended with a good old knees up, with everyone having a truly great time. The whole city centre wedding was everything I love about weddings, beautifully planned, perfectly relaxed and an awful lot of fun.

There’s something really special about city centre weddings. If you’re getting married and you are looking for a wedding photographer, I’d love to hear from you.
