Losehill House Hotel in Derbyshire’s glorious Peak District is one of my all-time favourite wedding venues. I love the seclusion and the setting, and the fact that the couple have the whole place to themselves for their wedding. I’ve photographed weddings there many times, and it never disappoints. Joe & Victoria’s wedding was no exception.
Wedding Photography at Losehill House in Derbyshire
The day started with Victoria and her cohorts getting ready at Underleigh House, a delightful bed & breakfast next door to Losehill House (much loved by my Auntie as a matter of fact, but that’s another story). The gardens there provided a superb setting for some pictures of the dress, and my favourite ever shoe shot.
Guests awaiting the start of proceedings at Losehill House, plus an early-on photo of groom Joe – no prizes for guessing which one he is. Many of the guests had travelled from Canada, as well as London and all over the UK.
Above: Joe and his groomsmen preparing themselves and walking into the venue. Below: late adjustments to Victoria’s veil followed by the short walk up to Losehill House. I love the reflection shot in the window, and Victoria’s Dad seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress.
Victoria enters the venue to her final staging point in the hallway, while Joe waits. She’s then led up the aisle by her Dad.
After the ceremony we repaired to the gardens, where the guests generally enjoyed the sunshine and so on.
Family group photographs – the big one was taken from a window.
Peak District Wedding Photography
I love the photo of Victoria twirling her dress while Joe looks on. Also, Losehill House has one of my favourite windows.
I love the play of the light on the couple in these natural wedding photographs.
Speeches, fun and games.
Very natural confetti photos as Victoria & Joe step out of the hotel to walk through the deluge.
This was followed by further drinks, enjoyment and so on. Note the bride’s Dad’s socks. I’m not certain of the meaning attributed to Ancient Mariner in this context, but I’m assured it was relevant.
A little later in the evening, we had the first dance. followed by a live band, partying and general mayhem. Most excellent.
My trademark last-shot-of-the-night was a particularly good one, in my totally unbiased opinion. I love the sky, the “swoop” Joe is holding Victoria in, and the setting. The sheep in the background are an added bonus.
If you’re getting married at Losehill House, I’d love to talk to you about photographing your wedding there. I’m based only about half an hour away (depending how many sheep are on the road), on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District. Please contact me for a chat and we’ll get the ball rolling.
