The Relaxed + Personalised Derby Wedding of Emma + Peter

A Quirky, Cool Wedding Day…

What’s not to love about todays real wedding of Emma & Peter, held at The Meynell Langley, in Derby; captured by the lovely Lisa Jane Photography (Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars of 2015 no less!)

I adore Emma & Peter’s personalised wedding day which they shared with their friends, family and favourite fur babies (dogs Hiro and Miso). The day was a relaxed affair with a cool marquee, pizza + ice cream for tea, a book cake and some awesome stationery from Mr & Mrs Unique suppliers Emmy Designs

Why you love this wedding…

I loved that they took all the normal wedding traditions but made them their own. It was completely personal. From the couple making sure their dogs could be present for the ceremony to their book inspired wedding cake. There was an element of the couple’s personality in every part of the day.

What were the couple’s requirements…

The couple wanted something relaxed and had both mentioned they were not keen on having their photos taken. More than anything Emma & Peter wanted a photographer who would fit in on the day and document the story. After our initial conversation, we realised we had very similar taste in music, film and books and I knew we would get on well on the day.

Favourite details of the day…

Emma & Peter put so much of themselves into their day. Rather than being cookie cutter wedding they made sure they were happy and comfortable and that the day reflected them and their relationship. I loved their invites and seating plan.

Favourite moment of the day…

When the ceremony got delayed because someone forgot the rings. The ceremony was delayed a little but the rings turned up and the couple got married. A lot of people would worry and panic but Emma & Peter just took it in their stride. They laughed it off and made a joke of it during the ceremony. It was a lovely reminder that things can go wrong but at the end of the day but as long as you get married, anything that happens just adds to the story of the day.

Emma + Peter…

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

We had seen each other around Derby many, many times before we were actually brave enough to speak to each other – and then the internet helped us out! We had our first date at a local pub when we were both full of cold. Cue lots of snotty flirting.

Peter proposed to me a year after our first date. We were in the Market Square in beautiful Bruges and had just been round the town on a horse drawn carriage. We sat outside a bar wrapped up in winter clothes and under the full moon he asked me to marry him.

What were your main hopes for the day…

That we would actually get married and that everybody would have a wonderful time.

Was your favourite part of the day…

This is such a difficult question! Peter says that his favourite moment was when the registrar said that we were man and wife. I was very nervous about standing up in front of everybody during the ceremony, so that was my most nerve wracking bit! I loved the whole day, but walking into the beautifully decorated marquee, hand in hand with my new husband to the cheers of all our nearest and dearest was probably my favourite moment.

How was your day unique…

I don’t know really. We just chose lots of things that we loved rather than having a theme or trying to impress anyone. Our invitations and seating plan were perfect and made just for us. Our cake was also awesome and looked just like a stack of our favourite books.

Our little fur babies, Hiro and Miso joined us for the day which was incredibly important to us. Our friends and family made the day truly unforgettable though with their drunken laughter and crazy dancing.

What was your budget…

We had quite a modest budget and managed to go over that. We’re not even exactly sure what we spent in total!

What was your biggest expense…

The venue and marquee were our biggest expense, but totally worth it.

How did you save money…

We avoided spending huge amounts of money on things that we weren’t really bothered about. We both arrived by taxi as fancy cars aren’t really our thing. We also had pizza and ice cream instead of a sit down meal because that’s what we wanted to eat. I did my own make up and I added bows to basic shoes to tart them up. We decorated the venue with friends and family too and I made origami cranes for place settings.

What was it like working with Lisa your photographer…

Our photographer, Lisa was absolutely amazing! She immediately felt like an old friend and had that stealth that all great photographers have. Most of the time, we genuinely did not realise that Lisa was taking photos of us and the results were just wonderful. Like many people, we normally can’t stand photos of ourselves, but we couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos.

Advice to any couples about to get married…

Do it! Getting married is ace. Most snippets of wedding advice seem cliché and this is no exception; but the day will be amazing regardless of any little hiccups. It rained all day at our wedding and it didn’t matter at all.

Thank you for sharing your day with us! Many congratulations Emma & Peter!
