Mercure St Pauls Hotel

Sheffield Wedding Photography

River Xavier felt honoured to be the wedding photographer of Emma and Tom at Mercure St Paul's Hotel wedding venue in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

Their story is a lifelong love story that unfolded as they found themselves, neighbours, as children. From childhood friends, their relationship blossomed and both sets of parents were delighted as the two decided to marry and have a gorgeous city centre wedding. 

This wedding venue is in the heart of Sheffield and features impressive views over the city centre. With an outdoor terrace and access to the Winter Gardens, Mercure St Pauls is easily accessed from the M1 Motorway as well as Meadowhall and Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster and Chesterfield. St Pauls Mercure is located near local attractions including the Winter Gardens, Sheffield City Hall, Sheffield Town Hall, the Millenium Gallery and the Peace Gardens. Nearby, highly-rated food options are served at Browns Restaurant in a beautiful contemporary environment where a private part of the restaurant can be hired.

Sometimes in life, you think that things are just meant to be. As a wedding photographer River Xavier aims to connect with every wedding couple in order to tell the story of their wedding day in a natural, fluid way; appearing as one of the wedding guests and blending into the day to capture the emotions and reactions as the day commences.

Whitley Hall Wedding Photographer - River Xavier

Choosing your Whitley Hall wedding photographer is a big decision. There are many wedding photographers in Sheffield. For your Whitley hall hotel wedding, you want a professional photographer you like; as a person and also as a photographer. You also want to choose a photographer you can trust to take care of your wedding photographs. My name is River and I am a trusted wedding supplier at Whitley Hall and can't wait to return, having more dates booked. Wedding photography is a different form of photography. At a wedding from start to finish, you have constantly changing light, high-pressure situations, once-in-a-lifetime moments, posing situations plus times when you are a candid photographer. You want a wedding photographer who can recognise all of the key moments. Someone who will create beautiful moments for you to remember your wedding day by. Your photographer must be able to recognise the special moments of the day, the environment, the occasion and the expressions that make your wedding story. So your wedding photographer must be an exceptional storyteller. As a premier wedding storyteller, instead of words, I express the narrative of your wedding day using unforgettable photographs.
My style is a blend of fine art and documentary wedding photography. What does this mean? Simply I am there to create natural, relaxed shots of your day from the beginning to the end. Often this will be done in a way that the person does not know a photograph is being taken at the moment. Therefore you can expect real photos of how your wedding day unfolded. I am a very relaxed person, people often say I make them feel very relaxed. I read people and listen. This comes through in my pictures. As well as careful planning.
As the wedding day unfolds I will capture some amazing fine art portraits of the two of you amongst the beauty and elegance Holme Pierrepont Hall has to offer.
These are the photos that will adorn your wedding album, showcasing the love between you. The beauty of the reception rooms, the walled courtyards and the stunning grounds. These photos will be amongst the candid, non-posed, photos of your wedding day. The ones that capture the real emotions and powerful interactions between you and your guests. The ones that you will see for the first time when your photos are delivered. The forever memories that create conversation in years to come as you turn the pages of your beautiful wedding album. These precious, rarely scripted and can’t be duplicated. You only have one chance to capture the perfect picture. This is what I do. This is the wedding photographer I am. I love my job!

Whitley Hall Wedding Photography

It's a tremendous feeling, to be a trusted wedding supplier at Whitley Hall. Call me as soon as you choose your wedding date, and schedule an appointment with me so we can get to know each other. The more I learn about what you are looking for and the plan for your wedding day the easier it will be for me to make sure I authentically capture your style. Everyone photographs differently. As I have said I am a natural and relaxed photographer but this comes from being well-planned on the day. We will have a meeting beforehand and most likely we will have had a pre-wedding (engagement shoot) that allows us to go through a few poses. Also, I am always available for you to contact.
As a Sheffield Wedding Photographer, I have a natural, documentary and fine art style that allows me to record the testimony of the events of your big day and capture each precious moment. Together, we can create a wedding album you can enjoy and will become your very own family heirloom. Please don’t wait to call me! We can sit down and put together a wedding plan that ensures no moment is missed as you start your life together.

History of Whitley Hall

Whitley Hall Hotel is the successor to Launder House; a dwelling that was built where Whitley Hall is set. Launder House, also known as Launderhouse, Lownderhouse and Loundhouse, was first documented in 1406 in a transfer deed to William Robinson from John Cartwright. In 1487 Launder House become the property of Thomas Parker and the beginning of a six-generation association. The 16th Century saw the development of the site by Thomas Parker's grandson (also named Thomas) and completed by his son, William, into the current manor house as we now know it. Hence the Parker Suite has the carving by William stating; "Willm Parker : Made this Worke 1584". In 1662 Whitley Hall was owned by the Shirecliff family. 
In 1790 John Rider leased Whitley Hall from the Shirecliffe family and it became a boarding school for 45 boys. It is not known for sure when Whitley ceased to be a boarding school. In 1816 Whitley Hall became the family home of the Bingley family. The Bingley's lived there until 1939 when it was taken over by the army. Hugh Bingley retained ownership of Whitley Hall until his death in 1962 although he never lived there after the 2nd World War. Whitley Hall was then bought by John I Fearn who restored and renovated the property for 7 years eventually opening it as a restaurant in 1969. In the late 1970's Whitely became a hotel and in May 1995 Whitey Hall became licensed to hold civil wedding services, the first in South Yorkshire. The elegance of the Whitley Hall manor house has evolved over the centuries into what it is today, a 32 en-suite bedroom hotel for weddings with a separate restaurant. The property has several areas throughout the estate allowing for exquisite wedding photography throughout the hotel and its grounds.
