The Hide Sheffield
The Hide Sheffield is an awesome wedding venue. It’s atmospheric, warm & inviting. The Hide was host to Jenny & Paul’s amazing wedding. Their story of how they met is just awesome! Just wait until you hear it! They also got married on May 4th – so watch out for the Star Wars references! This Yorkshire wedding venue is on my list of my favourites!
The Pheromone Party
Jenny & Paul met in what they quote as ‘ a bit of a bizarre way’. They met at a Pheromone party in East London. You can read all about Pheromone parties here, but to cut it short it’s a match making experience using only scent. Guests have to sleep in a shirt for 3 nights to really capture their individual aroma. They bag it & bring it to the party. Bags are labelled with pink for girls & blue for boys & each bag is given a number. The only person that knows the number is the owner of the shirt.
All the bags are placed out for other guests to go through & smell at their own pace. If a person likes the scent, they take a picture with it & the images are projected for all to see. If you see someone holding your bag & you would like to speak with them, that’s it! You go speak to them & see what happens!
Both Jenny & Paul say they only went for a laugh. They went along with friends just to experience it. They never expected to actually to meet anyone! Above all the one they would end up married to!
It was Paul that picked out Jenny’s t-shirt, he uploaded his picture with it & she went to talk to him! The rest as they say, is history! Paul was living in Belfast at the time, and Jenny in London. They were long distance for the first year or so of their relationship. Paul eventually moved to live with Jenny in London. On their 3 year anniversary, Paul proposed in the rose garden of Belfast Botanic Gardens.

The Wedding Day
On the day, Jenny & Paul decided to do a first look. That was so before the ceremony we could take a quick Uber ride over to Jenny’s Grandparent’s assisted living apartment to see them as they couldn’t make it to The Hide. It was such an honour to be able to be a part of something so special to them all.
When we got back to The Hide in Sheffield, Sarah Powell conducted the ceremony & it was nothing short of spectacular. It was so emotional & perfectly told their story.
It was such an amazing experience to be a part of this amazing wedding. Enjoy the images! There’s a lot to get through!
