When we skyped with Erica + Phil and they told us that after looking at pretty much every Sheffield Wedding Photographer they wanted to book with us and we were over the moon. As much as we love the adventure of travelling to weddings all over the UK and abroad their is still nothing as wonderful as Yorkshire and shooting Yorkshire Weddings. Erica + Phil are epic people. Both EXTREMELY creative, fun to be around and are both madly in love with each other. I know this may sound corny to some but Phil + Erica are certainly soul mates. They also support Sheffield Steelers Ice Hockey team and as Steelers fans ourselves well….this is a winner in itself!
Emails and Instagram conversations went back and forth in the build up to the wedding day so when we arrived on the morning it was like hanging out with old friends! We tell all the couples that book us to keep in touch and tell us about both their wedding plans and even just day to day goings on as it really does help build a good relationship up so that on the wedding day it’s like having a friend around who is awesome with a camera.
They both got ready at the wedding venue with their nearest and dearest including Phil’s brother. Now we mention Phil’s brother because Phil’s brother actually lives in Canada and was unable to be at the wedding in person. Modern technology did it’s thing so that Phil’s brother could Facetime throughout the wedding ceremony and even made the best mans speech through a pre recorded video. It was so lovely to watch and had everyone including Kelly in tears and not the bloody cake before you ask!
Once the ceremony had concluded everyone headed out onto the lawn for garden games, mountains of food and many, many belly laughs. For bridal portraits we jumped into our car and took a short drive down the road to Sheffield Botanical gardens which is the most beautiful wedding venue itself and somewhere we have since had the pleasure to shoot at. You can check out that Sheffield Botanical Gardens wedding here.
When it comes to first dances Phil + Erica absolutely smashed their effort out of the park. No slow dance for these two as the choreographed their moves with some style, they had secretly been taking dancing lessons! From then on it was Rock and Roll dancing until everyone dropped at the end of the night. So many sweaty, happy, fun and maybe a little bit tipsy people on the dance floor. The dance floor was rammed all night which is the sign of a belting wedding for us!
Erica + Phil we have the most wonderful memories from your wedding. You guys were so welcoming to us and we felt part of your wonderful ‘crew’. We must meet up again soon for cake and coffee…oh and possibly sushi and cocktails again 😉
