Amanda & Tim – Hellaby Hall Christmas wedding, Rotherham

Bride and groom kisses at sunset Hellaby Hall wedding photographers Rotherham

I love photographing weddings in Sheffield and Rotherham and one of my favourite times of year is Christmas – there is something very special about a Christmas wedding and Amanda & Tim’s didn’t disappoint. In fact the sun shone all day!

They were married at St John the Baptist Church in Wales, Rotherham with the reception at Hellaby Hall hotel.

Amanda’s gown was stunning – I love the back detail with the intricate lacing, and as it was winter she even had a nice fluffy coat in case it got too cold! Tim was getting ready nearby with his groomsmen and their well behaved pooch who even had their own flower collar!
The church service was lovely and afterwards the happy couple were showered with confetti before heading back to Hellaby Hall for mulled wine and photos!

We took advantage of the low setting sun for some lovely portraits of the happy couple – they all then headed inside to the reception room which was bedecked with twinkly fairy lights and cute pine cones. Before the speeches Santa even made an appearance for the boys and girls! The speeches were funny and heartfelt.

We took a few photos in the dark outside with the lights from the old building and also using light trails – always a good idea in the winter.

Then it was time for some enthusiastic dancing the night away!

We wish you both much love and happiness for the future
