The Wedding of Ali and Al at Melbourne Parish Church

Congratulations to Alison and Alan, who were married on Saturday 9th May at Melbourne Parish Church, Derbyshire. Ali looked beautiful in her Sassi Holford dress, which epitomised old-fashioned romance and glamour. It was a pleasure to take their photographs as they are clearly very much in love and it really shows in their photographs. As Derbyshire wedding photographers, I first photographed Melbourne Church at Catherine and Mark’s wedding last year who then recommended me to Alison and Alan, who happened to be marrying in the same parish. (Many thanks to Lord and Lady Ralph Kerr, who own Melbourne Hall, for allowing us to photograph on their front lawn). The stunning setting is special to Ali and Al, who regularly visit the lake and gardens for walks together. How lovely that I could therefore capture them walking down the winding lane as newlyweds, with the blue sky and rolling clouds above them – such a wonderful metaphor for their new life together.

During the speeches, the best man asked them to stand back-to-back and, without looking at each other, answer questions by holding up their shoes. I love the photograph that caught the moment when they declared who out of the two spent the most on clothes!

Wishing Ali and Al a great honeymoon in Rome and their images will be online when they return. In the meantime, here are some highlights from their perfect day.
