On the site today we feature the wonderful and fun wedding of Helen and Ade. Their day was captured by Laura Page.

The Couple
Helen and Ade live in Sheffield with their very cute dog and love music, sun, wine and each other. They were a brilliant couple to photograph because they are sincere and completely in love and also fun-loving and quirky – all dream qualities for a photographer to capture in a person.

The big day
This was a wedding of two halves. The earlier nuptials took place at the beautiful 17th century Middlethorpe Hall Hotel in York. All mellow red brick, limestone and wood panelled interiors it was a grand and relaxed setting where Helen looked perfectly at home in her gorgeous, traditional , period-style dress. This was where Helen and Ade were legally joined as husband and wife in an intimate and emotionally ceremony with their close family around them. I must admit I had to stifle a small tear.

Later came another ceremony, beautiful and emotional again, where Ade and Helen celebrated with their friends at Hulmes Vale Farm near Tideswell in Derbyshire in their own happy and creative way. The sun shone. People dressed in a 1920s style. Speeches were made. Laughs were constant and shapes were thrown on the dance floor until the sun came up.

About the Photographer
I’m originally from Liverpool and now live in Sheffield with my partner and my son. I really enjoy travelling and like to try my hand at a bit of pottery, surfing and football. I’ve been working as a professional photographer for over eight years now and can honestly say I love every minute of it. Weddings are amazing because I get to photograph people when they are at their happiest and I love nothing more than photographing people. It never gets boring because every wedding is different, every couple is different and the photos will be different for each one. As well as photographing weddings I photograph and write articles for national newspapers and magazines and also work as an artist. I currently have exhibitions of my work showing in Sheffield and Barcelona.

How would you describe your photography style?
My background is in photojournalism and I tend to take candid pictures when people are relaxed and often don’t notice I’m there. I try to record the day as it unfolds so people can stay relaxed and enjoy themselves and the photos are natural. I usually take some relaxed and fun group photos and some creative shots of the couple – it depends what the individual couple are like and the kind of thing they’re after really.

What did you love about the day?
I was able to capture so many little moments that the couple wouldn’t have otherwise seen. I met some great people and enjoyed seeing everyone so happy and alive. It sounds cheesy but it is a real honour being a part of one of the most important days of people’s lives and being able to record it for posterity.
