Holdsworth House is a luxury hotel and manor house near to Halifax in West Yorkshire. Set in beautiful grounds, this historic venue is the perfect setting to host your wedding day.

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!”

Holdsworth House Wedding Photographer | Yorkshire Wedding Photography

Rachael + Jamie got married at Holdsworth House, a luxury hotel and historic manor house near to Halifax in West Yorkshire. An award winning venue, it can cater to small or large celebrations and also has the option to hold your ceremony outside. Set in beautiful gardens, the venue offers lots of opportunities for group and couples photographs that can be completed quickly and without any fuss more importantly.

I met Rachael and her bridal party in the morning and spent the time covering her preparations and everything else was happening around the hotel in the build up. There were lots of little people at this wedding and everywhere I looked I was rewarded with another great photograph of one of them.

The ceremony was full of humour and emotion and afterwards we were able to get outside before it started to rain, meaning that the rest of the day was spent indoors. The light inside the venue is pretty low on the whole, however one of the things that I enjoy most about photography is looking for light to use to make interesting pictures and around Holdsworth house I was gifted with lovely pockets that meant that I only had to wait for the moment to occur.

After the meal and some interesting revelations during the speeches we were able to get back outside to make a few quick portraits of the newly weds before the evening reception began and the dancing signalled the beginning of the party.

Here is a small selection of photographs from Rachael + Jamie’s wedding to demonstrate the style of images that I produce at weddings.
