Formal Summer Wedding at The Cork Factory Hotel • Dawn Derbyshire Photography


Every so often we get to see a wedding that is not only gorgeous, but is also so full of emotion, you can’t help but feel like you had a front row seat. This gorgeous summer wedding from Dawn Derbyshire is absolutely one of them, and I dare you you to not to love as much as we do! The Cork Factory Hotel was the perfect backdrop for their special day: incorporating pieces of Sam’s Indian Heritage, service in the Marine’s and Jenna’s flair for design, these two created the wedding of the dreams.

From Dawn: Jenna and Sam got married on a gorgeous, sunny day in August. This sweet pair, who met after Jenna lost a bet and had to make a Tinder account, filled their day with fun, family, and a lot of rose gold. The ceremony took place near where Jenna grew up, at the Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster. The venue provided a perfect backdrop for the rose gold details, beautiful portraits, laughter filled ceremony, and wild dancing at the reception. Incorporating pieces of Sam's Marine background, paying homage to his Indian ancestry, mixing Jenna's aesthetic as an interior designer and honoring many of their family members in the process, these two made sure to have a beautiful wedding where they could step back, take it all in, and enjoy the day.
