Wedding photos at Sheffield Town Hall

Wedding photos at Sheffield Town Hall can be captured quickly and easily after your ceremony before you leave for your reception venue. There are a few things to bear in mind and with good planning we’ll make your wedding photography at Sheffield Town Hall a very enjoyable experience.

The main staircase photo

The main staircase at Sheffield Town Hall provides spectacular backdrop to wedding photos. This is the place where your bridal party will arrive before the ceremony. Bare in mind this is a busy wedding venue and you might not be allowed back there after your ceremony. If there is another wedding party waiting in the hall then you will not get a chance to get your staircase photo after your wedding ceremony and you will be lead out via a different exit at the back.

Of course most couples don’t see each other before the ceremony and if that’s the case then you’ll have to leave it till after the ceremony and hope you’ll get your chance. Other then this if you are arriving together and don’t mind seeing each other before then this will be a good time for the staircase photo.

Confetti shot at Sheffield Town Hall

The back exit at Sheffield Town Hall, adjacent to the Peace Gardens is where your wedding party will come out. It’s is a narrow way with barriers on both sides but still just enough of space for the two of you to go through the confetti tunnel.

As always it’s a good idea to consult using confetti with your venue beforehand. If allowed please only use biodegradable confetti, real petals or any other environment friendly alternatives.

If you want your wedding photo taken with this magnificent Sheffield’s landmark in the background then this is the place.
