Yorkshire Wedding Photographer | Leeds Wedding Photography

Anna & Paul got married on a warm summers day in Leeds, holding their reception at Kettlesing Millennium Hall, decorated in bunting and hay bales, the day summed up what a summer Yorkshire wedding is all about – partying that long day away in fields in the country side with all of your favourite people and a warm golden glow from the summer sun.

I met Anna in the morning at the hairdressers where she had her hair done with her sister before getting ready at home with her bridesmaids and parents. This group of people genuinely felt like one big family and that was the running theme throughout the day – lots of fun with an emphasis on the importance of a close family unit.

I met Paul and the arriving guests at Oakwood Church in Leeds before Anna arrived. Afterwards we all travelled up to the Millennium Hall where an Ice-cream van awaited us and the sunshine illuminated this fete themed wedding; and after a tea of scones, sandwiches and cakes we spent some time frolicking in the fields and made some photos of the couple together.

Due to the nature of the Hall, the couple and their wedding party decorated the whole venue, complete with an Ibiza chill out room and a live band in the other, while outside a fish and chip van served food to soak up some of the booze that the cocktail bar that was serving in deceptively small and potent quantities, and as the night time drew in, the fete became a festival with glow sticks to boot.

The couple booked me to stay until 11pm and this is a great idea for more relaxed weddings days such as this one. It means that the casual flow of events is not interrupted by a deadline in terms of the photography coverage, as is often the case with a good party, they get a bit more hair raising as the hours get on and its great for me as a photographer to be able to capture these memories for sober eyes to view.
