Hassop Hall Wedding Photography – Marianne and Daniel

Back in November we were privileged to photograph a wedding of Marianne and Daniel at All Saints church of Bakewell and at Hassop Hall, a beautiful Derbyshire venue in the middle of the Peak District National Park. Here is our Hassop Hall wedding photography post.

This time we’ve decided to do it more interesting and informative by putting some wedding tips and useful information from the bride and groom themselves! Marianne and Daniel kindly agreed to give us a small interview which we are delighted to include here.



Engagement photos of Sian and Rob

Engagement photos of Sian and Rob were taken on a spring day at our favourite location, Elvaston Castle Park. The guys liked it too as it was quiet, picturesque and with only few people around. We had a stroll through the wood, then the Elvaston Hall court yard, visited the gardens and took few shots next to the lake.

Sian and Rob were very interested to get good shots and were ready to spend some time for it. After an hour or so we had a selection of very different engagement photos, while all of them showing connection between the bride and the groom to be.

Here are few pictures from the shoot. Looking forward to photographing Sian and Rob’s wedding soon!

Pre-wedding photos Elvaston Castle Park – Emma and Andrew

We’ve recently got together to photograph Emma and Andrew at Elvaston Castle Park. This is one of our favourite places around Derby. The park has got a wood with old and very large trees where we hid from open sun to take few pictures. Then we walked towards the house and the garden for more shots. It was pretty hot so we decided to finish the session with ice cream.

Emma and Andrew will unusually have two weddings: one, with official ceremony, in Australia, and the other one back in England. Wishing them an excellent Australian wedding party and look forward to photographing their wedding day here in England!

Vintage Pre-wedding photos of Alyona and Dmitriy

For their pre-wedding shoot, Alyona and Dmitriy have chosen a vintage style. The whole photo shoot was done at Elvaston Castle Park, near Derby, which suited very well the vintage style with its Hall and surroundings.

Alyona’s dress, make-up and hair style (the hair style was beautifully done by Kate Thomson) and Dmitriy’s outfits were perfectly matching each other. Both the couple and Elen Studio Photography put their efforts together to choose the vintage accessories and create the shoot idea. Altogether there was a truly feeling of the 40ths atmosphere.

Having all these ingredients along with excellent warm and sunny weather, we all had a great time whilst shooting these engagement photos for Alyona and Dmitriy. Looking forward to shoot their wedding day!

Derbyshire pre-wedding photos of Hans and Vanina

Vanina and Hans are getting married at the end of this year. For their pre-wedding photo shoot they wanted that the photographs would also capture beautiful Derbyshire countriside. After several suggestions we’ve decided to take pictures at Derby itself, around Heage and the Heage Windmill and at Butterley railway station, reflecting the rich railway past of the region.

The weather was great on the day. The shoot in one of Derby’s parks was followed by few pictures at the Heage Mill, the only remaining working mill in the area built back in 1797, with pretty view of Derbyshire hills. After that we moved to the Butterley railway station where, by coincidence, there was a festival with steam engines operating on the line.

The day was full of fun and positive emotions from the shoot and from the walk around Derbyshire. Vanina and Hans, have a fantastic wedding day! It was a pleasure to photograph you.
