Claire & Wayne | The Kedleston Country House Hotel

25th April 2018
The Kedleston Country House Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel situated in the stunning Derbyshire countryside. And its where Claire and Wayne decided would be perfect for their wedding. As wedding venues go this one is a bit special and is perfect for for any brides and grooms looking for something a little less ordinary. Claire and Wayne both got ready at the venue, Claire with her sister, mum and bridesmaids enjoying a morning of Bridal prep in the Kedleston Suite while Wayne sweated it out in his room after the temporarily lost of his speech! Once that was found the wedding was ready to go!

The wedding ceremony was perfect with two readings that captured the moment and even with the freezing temperatures it wasn't enough to stop our intrepid bride and groom going outside for a sensational couples shoot amongst the disused farm buildings down the hill. Now as a professional wedding photographer I'm use to most conditions but this was probably the coldest I've been at a wedding! Total respect to Claire for braving the 'Beast from the East' to allow us to capture some amazing shots. Even photographing them with purple smoke flares turned out to be more challenging than usual as the winds were whipping across the Derbyshire countryside and you'll see from the images below not every shoot worked out how we'd hoped it to! We still love them even the outtakes!
