This romantic wedding day portrait was taken in the grounds of the fantastic Kenwood Hall Hotel in the leafy Sheffield suburb of Nether Edge. It followed a lovely wedding at Saint Vincent's church in Crookes which is also Sheffield. Following the wedding ceremony, we all headed to Kenwood Hall for the wedding reception. We hadn't photographed at Saint Vincent's church before and what a marvellous surprise this church turned out to be. It is a modern building which is light and airy a truly wonderful venue tucked away in the heart of this Sheffield suburb. We didn't even know it was there despite living not that far away from it. There is always something new to see if you keep your eyes open.
We might not have photographed a wedding at Saint Vincent’s before, but we have photographed dozens of weddings at Kenwood Hall over the years. We are really lucky in Sheffield to have several wedding venues like the Kenwood Hall Hotel. There are many other cities that don't have the choice our couples have in Sheffield which is a tremendous shame. We have met couples from many miles away who have come to Sheffield just to get married and who seemingly have little or no connection to the city. Being in the centre of the country makes Sheffield a convenient location for travel from north, south, east and west; kind of middle ground or a half-way house which could go some way to explaining it!Keywords: bride & groom portrait (219), bride and groom together (330), Kenwood Hall Hotel (462). 1/200; f/2.8; ISO 360; 200.0 mm.
