Sheffield Wedding Photographer
Hello, my name is Matthew Sier and along with my wife Deborah we are photographers based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
We specialise in natural, unobtrusive, and relaxed wedding photography on one of the key days in your life. We are passionate about all types of photography but especially wedding photography.
Please have a look around through some of the small selection of the hundreds of thousands of images we have taken since starting on our wedding photography journey back in 2005. Through the images on this website we firstly want to showcase to you our work as wedding photographers, but we also want to share with you some wonderful moments from some of the wonderful weddings we have photographed for some of the lovely couples we have met over the years.
Sheffield Wedding Venues
We have been honoured to photograph many weddings in the Sheffield region. One of our favourite wedding venues for wedding photography is the Kenwood Hall Hotel in the leafy Sheffield suburb of Nether Edge. We have photographed many weddings here over the years and are always happy to return for another. The hotel resides in 12 acres of wonderfully sculptured grounds with some amazing wedding day photo opportunities. Another popular venue for us is Whitley Hall Hotel in Ecclesfield on the outskirts of Sheffield. As well as being close to Sheffield, Whitley Hall is also close to Rotherham and Barnsley, and to the M1 motorway with its links to the rest of UK motorway network. This lovely wedding venue is one of the oldest buildings in the region and has been operating as wedding venue since the late 1960’s.
Another venue we have frequently photographed Sheffield weddings at is Mosborough Hall Hotel located in Mosborough. This is a beautiful wedding location with a wonderful mix of old and new buildings presenting some fantastic photography opportunities.
Sheffield Cutlers Hall is a city centre venue with a range of rooms to suit wedding and functions of most sizes up to weddings with 200+ guests. This is both a large venue but at the same time a beautiful and historic building. Whirlowbrook Hall on the south west of the city is set in some spectacular grounds and is another favourite for us.
This gallery contains a small selection of the hundreds of thousands of images we have created over the years. Hopefully, this gallery will serve to showcase some of the images that have brought us happiness over the years, but more importantly have brought joy and happiness to our couples. There are images from Sheffield, Rotherham, and Doncaster as well as photographs taken in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to name but a few. There are images from engagement photography sessions with our couples. Getting ready images are also an important part of the photography offering we provide. There are also portraits, family groups, detail photographs of wedding dresses and jewellery, there is dancing, almost always the first dance and often the party following this.
We have worked at many of the most popular venues in the region while providing our wedding photography services at venues including The Kenwood Hall Hotel, The Mosborough Hall Hotel, Whitley Hall Hotel, Wortley Hall Hotel, Sheffield Cathedral, The Rutland Hotel, Sheffield Hilton Hotel and The Garrison Hotel and The J. G. Graves Discovery Centre in Ecclesall Woods, Sheffield. Many of our couples also like to have either their wedding photographs or very often engagement photographs taken in the wonderful Sheffield Botanical Gardens for both Engagement Photography or as part of their Wedding Day. Other venues outside Sheffield but still within the surrounding area include the magnificent Ringwood Hall Hotel, The Peak Edge Hotel between Chesterfield and Matlock in Derbyshire, Van Dyke Hotel, Hellaby Hall Hotel and the Old Hall Hotel in Buxton.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer for a wedding in or around Sheffield or indeed a little further away, then we would love to hear about your plans for your special day. Our aim is to tell the story of the joy of your day through our photographs. We want to be with you on your journey through one of the most important days of your lives together, the day when your married life begins.
We started photographing weddings back in 2005 and began as many wedding photographers do, doing a favour for a friend’s daughter. That first wedding was our smallest with just eight people including us! Photographing this first wedding was such a thrill we were bitten by the bug and have never looked back. We have photographed weddings locally in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Rotherham and Doncaster as well as further away in the UK in North Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Edinburgh.
We have photographed dozens of weddings in and around Sheffield and have created thousands of beautiful images for our couples to treasure forever. These photographs will be forever and help to rekindle memories of their wedding day for the rest of their lives together. They are also a future record of your day for your children, grandchildren and beyond to look back on.
Please take a look through some of our favourite images throughout our website but particularly in our albums section where we showcase some wedding start to finish. You can also read some of the kind words from previous couples and their family and friends and please check if we are still available if you would like us to be part of your Special Day.
Yorkshire Wedding Photography
During our time as wedding photographers we have photographed at many other beautiful venues away from Sheffield and consider ourselves Yorkshire Wedding Photographers as well as Sheffield wedding photographers. We have worked in locations such as The Forest and Vale Hotel in Pickering, Saint Mary’s Church Lastingham in North Yorkshire and have ventured north of the border to photograph weddings in Scotland at venues such as The Glass House in Edinburgh.
Derbyshire Wedding Photography
While most of the weddings we have photographed have been local to us and our Sheffield based couples, we have photographed weddings in the wider Sheffield City Region (Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Chesterfield) as well as locations further away still. From our south west Sheffield location, we are nearer to Derbyshire than Rotherham. We therefore also consider ourselves Chesterfield wedding photographers and have provided wedding photography in Chesterfield and further south into Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire on numerous occasions. We have worked at several Derbyshire venues including Ringwood Hall in Chesterfield, The Peak Edge Hotel near Matlock, Woodthorpe Hall near Holmesfield, The Old Hall in Buxton, the magnificent Cressbrook Hall near Buxton and the Van Dyk hotel near Chesterfield.
Recording Your History
Wedding photography is not just something for now, it is the photographic history of your day to look back on from the future. And it isn’t just from your future, your children and grandchildren will be able to look back on. The photographic record of your day will record for posterity the joy, the emotion, and the excitement of your wedding day the way it should be, in a natural, creative, relaxed, and unobtrusive way. We photograph in a low-key way, keeping out of your way as you enjoy your day with your family, friends and most importantly, your new life partner!
Wedding photography to put you at ease
We try to make our wedding photography style as far as possible, relaxed, and unobtrusive. We aim to capture images of your wedding day in a candid, documentary style with some fine art and lifestyle thrown in. Our images are natural and unforced, photographs of moments occurring during your day, not moments created by us to look good in our portfolio. We want to capture and document as many of the special moments during your day while keeping out of your way as much as possible.
We are driven to create some stunning images from the best parts of your day together. We understand that your wedding day is just that, Your Day! Our images are a record of that day; no photographer should ever try to make your day fit any preconceived ideas they have about a wedding. We understand that every wedding day is different, but each one tells a story - your story. It is that story we aim to capture through our photographs, for you to have and hold, long after the day has passed, and the confetti has blown into the wind...
Your wedding day is one of the key events in your life and deserves recording and documenting properly to form part of your family history. On such an important occasion it is only sensible to engage the services of someone who cares deeply about their craft and works with a passion to get you the best pictures possible. As a team we work tirelessly to capture the mood of your day through photographic our imagery.
It is also advisable to choose someone independent of the rest of the wedding guests to take your wedding day photographs. I speak from experience photographing my brother’s wedding and the wedding of a close friend and trying to combine work with pleasure means you don’t get 100% from either!
As well as wedding day images, we also have a gallery specifically dedicated to engagement photography. Engagement photography sessions are a wonderful way to spend an hour or two
