Doreen & Ash’s Wedding Photography Highlights From

The Melbourne View Hotel

Knew when I first met Ash & Doreen that we’d get along when they introduced me to their Staffie at their house. Everyone knows Staffordshire Bull Terriers make the best pet dogs. They actually brought it along to our pre-wedding shoot too which made for some awesome photos.  They got married at the Melbourne View Hotel which is a great place to get married only a mile away from Melbourne and in the heart of the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. It has a separate room for a civil service as well as a large conservatory large enough for 80+ to eat along with plenty of grounds and accommodation for your guests, being able to accommodate up to 180 for the evening party. So on the day of the wedding Doreen was getting there with all her bridesmaids and I can’t even write on here the first comment I got from one of them…but let’s just say there weren’t any reservations and everyone was very comfortable with me being around! So while Becky Dawson was doing a great job of the hair and Paula Tennentdoing an amazing job of the make up, Ash was just arriving and working on that awesome quiff of his, although the crazy wind wasn’t doing him too many favours!

They had an amazing ceremony with lots of love, laughs and tears (mainly from Doreen’s dad! and nothing wrong with that, I’m known for crying at the smallest things since having kids: Lion King, We bought a zoo, even the John Lewis Advert!!) Anyway apart from the windiest day ever on record that there ever was, (oh did I mention it was windy?!!) well apart from that it was an absolutely awesome day with so many laughs, Ash and Doreen don’t take themselves too seriously and the fact they all did a crazy face for the big group shot and re-creating that classic romantic scene of the newly weds running towards each other in a field (BUT WITH ASH’S VERY SPECIAL RUN) shows the type of couple they were. The highly amusing footage of Ash hasn’t made the slideshow but there are a couple of classic photos and will be in the full gallery over the weekend for you all to check out!!   

If you’re thinking about getting married here then don’t hesitate before they get booked up and if you like my photography too then get in touch today to request my wedding brochure & price list. Here’s a slideshow with some highlights from the day to bring back all the memories, with a link to the full gallery coming in a couple of days.
