Ashleigh + Jamie’s Holdsworth House Wedding Photography

Ashleigh + Jamie got married at Holdsworth House, a beautiful Jacobean mansion in Halifax. The couple chose winter to hold their celebration so it was a tad nippy outside on the day, so in this respect the venue provided the perfect ambience to keep the guests warm and the atmosphere alive.

I really enjoy working at Holdsworth House. The venue offers a couple of challenges in terms of lighting, but this makes the opportunity to produce images in this low light more exciting. To compensate for the darkness, the building has some well-positioned windows and lamps dotted about the place that provided plenty to work with in this respect, and the resulting photographs offer some great contrast as a result.

Ashleigh is Canadian and there is a tradition in North America for the couple getting married to see each other before the ceremony. This gave me a great chance to get a photo of the couple that captured their spontaneous emotion within the moment. The picture that I chose for this blog shows them first seeing each other but I took a series that then showed them hugging, however I like to show variety in my blog so within each post you will see a small selection of photo’s from different parts of the day.

The couple sent me this feedback after the wedding and they received their photo’s:

“We wanted to get in touch to let you know that one of the most consistent compliments we’ve been getting from our family and friends who attended the wedding is how genuinely lovely you were! You blended right in like we’d known you for years and you made everyone feel so comfortable, thank you again for everything you did for us on our big day. We wouldn’t have changed a thing and are so glad you were a part of it!

You captured the day perfectly; we simply could not have asked for a better person doing our photography. We are truly touched and will treasure your photos forever. I can’t wait to share them around! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
