All Saints Church Wingerworth // Batemans Mill
Living local to Chesterfield and having grown up around the area, I was really excited when I met up with Matt and Oana and they told me they had changed their wedding venue to the All Saints Church in Wingerworth, Derbyshire.
The wedding Morning
I met up with Oana at her home address on the morning of the wedding and there I met up with her Romanian family. After some friendly introductions and a cuppa I was happy when her brother gave me a hand to do some detailing shots or the flowers and shoes outside.
Oana didn’t show any signs of nerves and enjoyed some happy moments with her daughter as she got ready. She was even helped with her makeup (well…sort of).
I arrived at the church to find Matt had started to welcome some of the guests. The sunshine had come out to play by this time and we managed to capture some lovely shots as Oana arrived and was walked towards the church by her family.
It was a lovely and intimate ceremony was lovely set in the oldest part of the church. Oana held back the tears as she exchanged vows with Matt, it was then time for the official “I do’s” and they were both smiling from ear to ear.
We stopped off for some shots at Lodge Pond on the way to the venue. This is where we had shot the pre shoot and the couple had requested we shot some more on their actual wedding day. It was a perfect way to capture two different moments in time.
We then went up to Batemans Mill for the reception. The venue had been decorated beautifully and we managed to get a few photos before the wedding breakfast and speeches.
A sparkler exit rounded off a perfect day for Matt and Oana. A day they will never forget and it was a pleasure to be part of it and capture your memories forever.
