Van Dyk Hotel, Derbyshire
We rounded off 2018 in style with the wedding of Stephen and Julie at the Van Dyk Hotel
I pulled up to the hotel and it looked the perfect winter wedding venue with twinkling lights everywhere. I met the Julie and her bridesmaids as they were getting ready in the bridal suite overlooking the gardens. As Julie’s make-up was finished off by the talented Demi Mitchell, it was clear to see she was super excited about the big day ahead.
After being helped into her dress, Julie then headed to the ceremony room and made her way down the aisle to the groom, Stephen, who was waiting in anticipation to see his beautiful bride.
It was a wonderful ceremony filled with love.
It was then time for a few shots outside before the winter sun disappeared for the day. Stephen had expressed that he would love a picture with his groomsmen and their motorbikes – so, after a crazy burnout in the carpark, we managed a few pictures before getting engulfed in tyre smoke.
Following the wedding breakfast, the guests were then surprised with two of the amazing Silver Service singers posing as waiters, and this had the wedding party in a craze. I always love to see wedding singers and would recommend them to anyone.
The great atmosphere carried all the way through to the evening do and into the night.
What a way to finish the wedding season of 2018!
Thank you Stephen and Julie! I wish you the best for the future…..Matt
