Matlock Wedding Photography | Alex & Sarah

Sarah and Alex’s wedding was something very special from start to finish and full of personal touches such as the reception being held at Sarah’s family home. The huge amount of work and planning that went into this day really paid off as guests were treated to an absolutely stunning wedding. The ceremony took place in Christ Church in Holloway which looked breathtaking, filled with lanterns and willow branches overflowing with fairy lights. The service, led by Sarah’s godfather,  included readings from the ‘Song of Songs’ and ‘Guess How Much I Love You’. Two double decker buses took the guests to the reception where they were met with an incredible alpine theme reception which reflected Alex and Sarah’s joint love of the slopes. The dramatic dining marquee contained a magical indoor landscape of trees under a night sky filled with a thousand stars, hard to imagine? just scroll down and take a look! The evening ended on a high with an incredible band called The Hitlist that we would highly recommend – as you can see from the photos the dancing was pretty impressive too!

While the girls were getting ready the boys popped into the Jug and Glass Pub for a swift pint before the service

I think Sarah and Alex’s first look at each other at the altar says it all!

You did it guys!





It was great to watch the faces of the guests as they entered the reception marquee for the first time to be greeted by an amazing alpine ski lodge!

While the guests enjoyed drinks and nibbles Sarah we used the beautiful backdrop of Sarah’s family home to take a few photos of the newlyweds
