Hartington Church & Tissington Hall Wedding
Today we feature the wedding of Bryony & David at Hartington Church & Tissington Hall back in October 2014. Their special day was captured by Devon based wedding photographer Anna of Luna Photography.
Bryony was a bridesmaid at a wedding I photographed in Derbyshire a few years ago, Jess, whose wedding it was was also a bridesmaid to Bryony so it was great to see her and her husband Cameron again too. I’m so glad my work stood out to Bryony and she remembered me! Everyone was so lovely and welcoming. Not many couples are happy to stand out in the rain and still smile but Bryony and David were so easy-going, and as you can see it paid off! Bryony & David met at university and David’s speech about how they met was one of the best I heard in 2014, the way he spoke about Bryony was beautiful.
The Big Day
I work in Derbyshire fairly often as its actually my home county, and I knew a few of the wedding party already from previous weddings so that was great. It was late October and a bit wet but as you can see rain can make for some awesome images, i’m very much up for embracing the weather. We weren’t actually allowed to take any photos in the church, I managed to talk the vicar into letting me get a couple but he was incredibly strict. I’m very glad we got a few though as the couple were so lovely.
I’ve just turned 33 and live on a farm in Devon with my partner and 3 year old son, i’ve been shooting weddings for around 11-12 years now so you could say i’ve grown into the job, its very much helped to shape me as a person.
I find it very hard to define my style as my work can be different from one wedding to another, but i’d probably say creative documentary, I like to create a narrative of the wedding day infused with some images that are slightly abstract, working with my environment.
What did you love about the day?
As always, the people I work with make my job what it is, but also being in Derbyshire and getting to take photos in the rain! Plus the venue was beautiful as is the village of Hartington – another bonus was we stayed in a B&B in Hartington for the night before the wedding which was literally across the road from where Bryony and her bridesmaids were getting ready!
