Nicola + Ian’s Leeds Town Hall Wedding Photography

Nicola + Ian got married at Leeds Town Hall and then held their reception at The Adelphi pub in the centre of town. The couple held their ceremony later in the day as it was the height of summer, however the heat of 2018’s summer radiated well into the evening.

I met Nicola at a hotel in town were she got ready with her bridal party and then we walked through town to meet Ian at the Town Hall. The couple got married in the Broderick suite, which is my favourite room to photograph in at this venue, as the light is generally really bright and even at any time of the year.

After a quick exchange of formalities and giggles, I walked through Leeds city Centre with Nicola + Ian to make a few portraits of them both together. As it was pride weekend, this offered a really colourful backdrop during our walk.

Ian is a big comic fan and so we were able to stop on route to the Adelphi to get a photo in his regular shop. When we got to the reception venue, the guests had all arrived before us so after making sure that everyone was hydrated, the speeches were done before everyone ate good old fashioned pub grub.

In the evening I went for a walk with the couple to make a few more photos of them both together and to utilize a few smoke bombs that Ian had brought along. The ensuing scene reminded me of a scene from a war film, and as we were in the center of town, I don’t think that Ill be volunteering to do these kinds of photo’s again!

I received this message from Nicola + Ian when they got their photo’s back:

“We sat down to have a proper look through all the pictures the other day and they are just wonderful. Thank you for everything you did, numerous people have commented on how great you were. Also, I want to say a big thank you for being so calming and helpful on the morning, it made a massive difference.  Again, thank you for putting us both at ease, being fun and doing an amazing job. “
