Wedding Venues

I have photographed at many beautiful venues in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire. Here is a selection of my favourites. I have also photographed numerous church weddings, which I really like because of the classic architecture and the variety of angles to choose from when shooting the ceremony.
