Enginuity Coalbrookdale Ironbridge Wedding – Sophie and Diane

Same sex wedding epic portrait

I’ve photographed and documented many different types of weddings but back in August I had my first opportunity to photograph a same sex wedding, and what a great day it was. I was again working as second shooter for my good friend and top Midlands wedding photographer Darren Gair from The Last of the Light. We met up with our two wonderful brides, Sophie and Diane, at Carpenters Row Cottages in Coalbrookdale, a lovely holiday cottage that they had hired for their bridal preparations. It was a stunning location which allowed for some great photos.

The wedding ceremony was held in the Board Room at the Enginuty Museum at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Ironbridge Gorge site. It was a great ceremony space with bright airy windows which cast a wonderful light on the proceedings. After the ceremony the wedding party made their way out onto the green at the museum for a drinks reception and canapes in the sun. Once their drinks were quaffed Sophie and Diane were whisked away in a stunning vintage classic Fiat 500 for a balloon release underneath the arch of Abraham Derby’s famous iron bridge.

Back at the museum we made our way into the Covered Bays where the guests were treated to a fish and chip supper wedding breakfast . . . complete with mushy peas! Following the speeches we were entertained with an amazing live musical performance featuring songs from the musical Wicked, the bride and bride’s favourite musical, before everyone hit the dancefloor for the evening party.

Once again I’d like to say a huge thanks to Darren and also to Sophie and Diane for having me along for the day, it was a real thrill to have been part of their wonderful wedding . . .
