Today I’m thrilled to share this stunning South Yorkshire Wedding with pretty dusky pink & rustic detailing at Small Shaw Cottages on the edge of the Peak District.
Images were captured by Martin Cheung Photography.
Martin has been a a wedding photographer for 8 year, working alongside his wife who i a talented wedding videographer.
They are based in Nottingham, and work together to capture the emotion and beauty of each beautiful wedding day.
Martin shares his recollections of the couple and their South Yorkshire Wedding day…
Sarah actually used to cut my hair, years ago at the local barbers. But eventually she moved on and we lost touch.
Our paths crossed again when we were the wedding photographer and videographer for their best friends, Gemma & Ben.
So we were very pleased when it was Sarah & Adrian’s turn and they approached us to work with them for their Wedding
What I remember is the tranqulity of the countryside!
Small Shaw Farm is set just on the border of the Peak District, and living near Nottingham, it was nice to get out and away from the hustle & bustle.
The beautiful views and the sheep all were the perfect backdrop to what was a very relaxed day.
My particular favourite parts of the day were the tug of war and Hannah, the bridesmaid’s hilarious face when she was desperately trying to let off the confetti canon during the first dance!
I hand over to gorgeous Bride Sarah to share her love story…
How did you meet?
He was my night in shining armour and rescued me when my car broke down. We became friends and inseparable from there on.
Tell us about the Proposal…
The proposal was one big surprise, having 13 family members round the table on Christmas day.
He bent down on one knee and popped the question, it was wonderful!
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
From day one we always knew we wanted a chilled relaxed wedding day, with lots of fun and laughter.
So where best to celebrate than in a field with tipi’s family friends and yummy street food.
Our wedding planning journey was pretty straightforward as we are both on the same wave length so choosing stuff wasn’t stressful at all.
As long as there was family, fun and lots of memories to be made then we were pretty much happy with anything.
We had our family stay with us the day before and the day after.
Then time spent with everyone and relaxing the day after together was amazing and made it feel like we had a wedding weekend not just a day.
Any special touches?
Our best friends were our best man and maid of honour, and we had our furbaby as part of our day too walking down the aisle with our bridesmaids.
We had lots of toys /garden toys for our guests to entertain them while we had photos, worked a treat as our amazing photographers got so fantastic memories.
We had a brilliant singer /acoustic guitarist that played our walking down the aisle song, 1st dance, obviously more songs but them 2 were personal to us and he played them amazingly to say he hadn’t actually heard them before.
What was the theme / colour palette of your Big Day?
We chose dusty pink, and lots of greenery, tweed suits and the outdoorsy feel, everything that we like to do was portrayed in our South Yorkshire wedding day.
What was the best bit of your day?
Hard question. The whole wedding was amazing and we loved every bit of it, but I think the best part was actually seeing each other when we met at the aisle, being apart for the night before felt like a lifetime.
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Don’t stress about the small things, we brought and made so much for our guests but with everything that was going on we forgot them.
Nobody noticed, and they obviously weren’t needed.
Also just take some time for the new husband and wife to have a few minutes to stop and look around and take everything in.
The day goes so fast its unbelievable, but having that time just the 2 of you makes it so perfect.
I would highly recommend Martin Cheung Photography and No Ordinary Films, they helped keep our amazing memories of our day alive with the incredible photos and fantastic video. They were absolutely amazing and brilliant to work with.
