Temple Newsam Wedding Photography | Leeds Wedding Photographer

Hannah + Kieron got married in August at the church in Barwick in Elmet, close to Leeds, and then had their reception at Temple Newsam in the Marquee situated in the walled gardens. Hannah and her bridal party got ready at a local hotel that was centrally located between both venues, which made commuting between everything fairly easy, and being close to home is always a bonus and meant that I got a cheeky lie in too which is always a bonus 😉

The weather was blustery though this kept the clouds moving providing periods of strong light dispersed with diffused sun that was great to work with. I had to cover the ceremony from the back of the church but the side aisles and gentle foot work allowed me to get some photo’s from the side during the speeches and hymns, and standing back from the scene means that I am able to draw more into the photograph compositionally. After the ceremony we moved on to the reception and spent a leisurely couple of hours soaking up the sun, and in this time made a few family group shots too, with the walled gardens providing the perfect background. The reception is my favourite part of the wedding to photograph as the most important part of the day has been completed and is usually safely tucked away in my card wallet, and the guests are fed and watered which always make a nice atmosphere to be within.

After the speeches I spent 10 minutes with the newly weds making a few photos in the park while the band sound checked and then the evening festivities began and I sloped off into the night with tired feet and an easy drive home. Here are a few photo’s from Hannah + Kieron’s wedding to demonstrate the informal nature of my wedding photography.
