Victoria + Johns Yorkshire Wedding | Leeds Wedding Photographer

Victoria and John got married at Esholt Church, a beautiful and quaint Yorkshire landmark, that has been featured in the long running soap opera Emmerdale. They then held their reception at Hollins Hall in Baildon, which is not far from the centre of Leeds and about five minutes from the church. Both venues and the weather on the day gave me lots of interesting aspects to work with as a photographer, which also ensured that the photography ran smoothly as there were lots of options for things like open shade when it came to doing some family group shots, and strong contrast from the sky to play with when we made some portraits of Victoria and John together.

After spending a couple of hours with Victoria in the morning, I went up to the church to capture the guests arriving. The vicar who conducted the service had a great sense of humour and brought this into the ceremony which meant that the whole congregation was crying with laughter or emotion from watching two great people declare their love for each other. After the ceremony the reception took a leisurely pace in glorious sunshine on the open lawn at Hollins Hall. The atmosphere echoed  the good humour of the ceremony and every where i looked people were having a great time and laughing hysterically. John continued this into the ceremony where he had everyone both laughing and crying.

Victoria & Johns daughter had a central place in the proceedings of the day and as such was an integral part of my photography coverage. Its great photographing weddings as I get to capture families interacting and these photographs become priceless memories over the years. One of my favourite photos from this wedding was of the young family playing around the big Love letters, which was the perfect photo opportunity from a perfect wedding.
