Elegant and Stylish Wedding At Upper House Hayfield

Derbyshire Wedding Photographer

I was so excited to photograph Mel and Jon's June wedding at the exclusive wedding venue, Upper House Hayfield in High Peak Derbyshire last year.  This intimate yet quite magnificent  venue is set in the most beautiful surroundings of the National Trust's Kinder Estate and the views are just breathtaking.  

Mel and Jon made one simple request, they wanted their day to be relaxed and fun, they didn't want to spend time away from their guests, they wanted to celebrate and party together, so they requested a candid approach.  This meant that for the majority of the day I was in the background documenting the day with very little interaction or posing. 

One of the highlights of the day for me (and perhaps my 10 years of photographing weddings) was when Mel and Jon cut their wedding cake and had their first dance outside in the beautiful stone walled courtyard, under the lights and stars.  It was just the perfect setting, emotional and fun.

Here are the images from their day, I am looking forward to photographing a wedding back at Upper House in July this year!  A gorgeous wedding venue and very friendly and attentive staff/co-ordinators.
