Denstone College | Gemma + Tommy

Bring a couple intent on making their day the most perfect it could be, in one of the most stunning settings at Denstone College in Uttoxeter, add in fabulous summer weather and a fabulous collection of friends and family, and you have the recipe for a fabulous wedding... Gemma + Thomas are a fabulous couple whose day could not have been more of a pleasure to document.

As a conclusion to the epic month of May, I headed over the beautiful Blithfield Reservoir on my way to Denstone College, starting the day first with Gemma and her girls at the beautiful Hoar Cross Hall and Spa resort in Burton-on-Trent.

Again blessed with beautiful weather, and straight off the back of the stunning weddings I had already had the pleasure of sharing, capturing Gemma + Tommy’s beautiful wedding was a real treat. Choosing fabulous settings both for the morning’s preparations, and the characterful and beautiful setting of Denstone College for the wedding reception, the day could not have been pitched up more perfectly. The threat of rain abated early on, and the day was simply stunning from start to end…

My morning started at The Hoar Cross Hall and Spa capturing Gemma at Matthew Curtis hair salon as the finishing touches were applied to the beautiful vintage hair styled by Jessica. Walking into such a relaxed atmosphere, only to be engulfed with excitement as the bridesmaids and Gemma’s family arrived into the salon, the day started famously.
Gemma made use of the fabulous team at Hoar Cross, moving to the makeup team at the Spa for a clinique make-over.
Taking the opportunity to roam the wonderful setting of the hall before rejoining the bride and her bridesmaids as they were getting ready, I couldn’t help but admire the stunning setting of the hall, and certainly cannot wait to be back to photograph a wedding at Hoar Cross Hall.

Leaving the girls as they finished getting ready in their gowns, I headed down to Denstone to the college to capture the next part of the story with our groom Tommy nervously awaiting the arrival of his beautiful bride, who was only slightly late…

Seeing Tommy’s face change as Gemma came down the aisle to him at the altar, managing to only just hold the tears within – and only to save appearances in-front of his maths students who were sitting in the choir directly infront of him – it was a joy to see. With so many excited faces of the friends and family of both Gemma and Tommy looking on from the seats, with the bridal party’s entrance accompanied by the wonderful guitar music of Gemma’s younger brother.

From the ceremony it was onto the lawns to enjoy the fabulous afternoon’s weather, with friends and family enjoying the personal touches from Gemma and Tommy from the decorations and styling, through to the inspired drinks selection including Pink Lemonade in Glass Jars!

The wedding breakfast was held in the grand hall at Denstone College, which proved to be the most idyllic setting, akin to the Great Hall of Harry Potter.
As is often the case, one of my highlights of the day was capturing the wedding speeches. With the fabulously entertaining tales from the Father of the Bride, the honest and frank, and emotion inducing speech from the groom, and the highlight being the Best Man’s wonderful speech bringing great reactions from the Bride, Groom and guests all attending.

Following the wedding breakfast Tommy and Gemma had arranged for wonderful hand-made icecreams and the very well used Cocktail Bar from The Lewis Partnership providing the backdrop for a fabulous evenings entertainment, added to with the guitar playing and vocal performance from Gemma’s brother for the first dance, and the fabulous band for the party proceeding.

Blessed with beautiful weather throughout the day, especially highlighted with the evening’s portraits of the Bride and Groom at golden-hour, just before sunset, Gemma and Tommy really were spoilt on their day, and it was a pleasure to share it with them.

Here is a look at Gemma + Tommy’s Denstone Hall Wedding photographers Stuart James their to capture and document the day.
