What can I say, what a beautiful setting to have a wedding, surrounded by the lush countryside of Dovedale, a Derbyshire Wedding Photographer dream, this classic, family-run hotel in a restored 17th-century stone guesthouse with a modern annexe.
When Sue & Eletia asked me to be both their Wedding Photographer and Videographer in Derbyshire I was most keen!
Warm, traditional rooms have free WiFi, TVs and tea and coffeemaking facilities. Some have garden or valley views so your guests can enjoy a relaxing stay and a really good walk if they want to blow away a hangover after your celebrations the following day! Upgraded rooms add sitting areas, whirlpool baths and/or oak-beamed ceilings. Children under 3 stay free with an adult.
There’s an elegant fine dining restaurant, as well as a wood-beamed bar and a lounge with a big-screen TV. I think this to me was one of my all time favourite weddings from 2016, it might have rained a bit but being a seasoned wedding photographer it didn't stop play as I had lots of ideas for contingency for their portraits. Plus the girls were up for a few evening portraits which I think came out especially well using the gazebo. The aerial video that we did for their video was really something and was promoted for some time on the venues website!
