Peak Edge Hotel Wedding Photography

It’s a great feeling when everything goes perfectly when shooting a wedding. The wedding of Claire & Andrew at the gorgeous Peak Edge Hotel was very much one of those days!

The sun was blazing as I arrived with Claire in the morning. She was at Heath Suite with her bridesmaids, relaxing and excitedly preparing herself for the day ahead. After capturing the details of her dress, shoes, flowers, and accessories, I stepped back and simply watched what was going on. Once everyone was ready, we paused for some portraits before the formalities of their day began.

Bridal Preparations in The Heath Suite

After an amazing ceremony, filled with a few tears and much laughter, Claire & Andrew completed the formal part of their day before strolling into the lounge to enjoy their drinks reception and lots of hugs and kisses. The couple then ventured outside into a flurry of confetti, joined their family for some formal groups then we captured a few portraits before dinner.

Once everyone was seating, the couple were welcomed into their wedding breakfast and sat to eat their delicious meal. I returned to the party as everyone was lounging, chatting and enjoying each other’s company. They were then treated to a round of speeches featuring a Take That medley by the bridesmaids and a special guest for the groom. I then stole Claire & Andrew away for a few more portraits in the golden evening sun before their evening guests arrived.

It was soon time for their party to begin and after greeting more friends, the guests took to the Ashover Suite for the couple’s first dance. After Andrew gracefully threw Claire around the room, their family and friends joined them on the dance floor. As darkness was approaching, I took the couple outside for their final portrait by the surrounding countryside before leaving them to enjoy their evening together.

Huge Congratulations to Andrew & Claire, I had a simply amazing day with you, your family and friends. I hope that you have an amazing honeymoon, thanks so much for having me as your photographer!
