Ticknall Church – Jeremy & Shirley

Ticknall Church is a wonderful setting for a wedding and I was delighted to be asked to capture Jeremy and Shirley’s day for them. They live just a few metres from the church in the beautiful village of Ticknall, Derbyshire. Jeremy and Shirley met at a Christmas party at Tatton Park, Manchester. Jeremy was to propose a few years later over dinner on New Year’s Eve at The Lamb Inn, Burford.

It was a perfect Summer’s day for a celebration with so many friends and family. Shirley wore a gorgeous vintage style champagne dress by Maggie Sottero decorated with pearls and crystals, complimented beautifully by a pearl necklace and antique watch which belonged to the groom’s late mother. Jeremy looked very dapper in a Torre mohair grey lounge suit with apple green necktie and handkerchief, with button hole by Jenny Holingsworth.

Ticknall Church is a fabulous setting and the flowers by Maggie Fenby Taylor, choir, church bells and wonderful guests set the scene. Following a fabulous ceremony led by vicar Steve Short we moved on to a very relaxed reception at Branston Golf and Country Club for drinks followed by the wedding breakfast. The cream and apple green theme was reflected in the unique cupcake stands on each table and flowers by Johnsons Florists, Burton on Trent. The meal was brought to a close with some fabulous speeches, after which guests were further entertained by the wonderful voice of 50’s singer Rose Devine

I specialise in relaxed documentary photography, if you like the images and would like to hear more about my services then please get in contact. I have recently moved to the Cotswolds and cover weddings in this area as well as many in the Ashby de la Zouch area where I was previously located, as well as travelling more widely across the Midlands and UK.
