On the 16th June 2018, Lisa and John got married at the stunning Yeldersley Hall in Derbyshire surrounded by their family and friends, and I had the privilege of being their wedding photographer!
In June 2017, John surprised Lisa with a birthday trip to Wengen, Switzerland and on the last day, at the top of a mountain (Jungfraujoch), whilst they walked in the snow, John popped the big question and Lisa said YES! A year later and here we are celebrating their wedding day at Yeldersley Hall!
The morning started with Lisa hanging out with her mum, and her sister and sister-in-law in the large suite upstairs. Champagne was flowing, the music was on, and they were rocking the matching striped pyjamas! John and the guys were finishing up the last bits of decoration in the driveway and getting ready over in the Lodge with his family.
At 2pm it was time to get wed, and all the guests were gathered in the ceremony room, along with Groom John. Lisa walked in with her dad and her two bridesmaids, and it was lovely to see the emotion in the room! The ceremony was just beautiful and it was impossible not to smile with happiness for them both.
A confetti exit was a must! Followed by a wonderfully sunny drinks reception in the courtyard and the many beautiful gardens that Yeldersley has to offer! Guests were able to play many different lawn games, such as boules and lawn darts, and they even had a coconut shy! How amazing!!
Lisa and John enjoyed some time together walking through Yeldersley’s stunning grounds, enabling me to capture some beautiful photographs of the newlyweds. We even got the smoke grenades out and had LOTS of fun!
It was soon time for afternoon tea, complete with gorgeous cakes and vintage teapots filled with flowers. The speeches were heartfelt and lovely (I just adore wedding speeches, particularly the Father of the Bride speech) and there were big smiles, laughs, and tears all around.
As the evening drew in Lisa and John’s friends and family gathered around to watch them as they cut their wedding cake as the new Mr and Mrs Ryde, before taking to the dancefloor to enjoy their first dance.
John and Lisa – I wish you both all the love and happiness in the world. Enjoy this wonderful time together and never stop smiling and having fun. Thank you for giving me the honour of being your wedding photographer at Yeldsersley Hall. Enjoy your honeymoon adventures!!
