The Faversham Wedding Photography

The Faversham Wedding Photography Leeds

The Faversham is a Leeds student rite of passage and also offers those with fond memories of the place the opportunity to create even more by hosting their wedding here. This large pub has a light conservatory for the ceremony and use of the entire ground floor and grounds for the reception and party.

Megan + Ross’ Faversham Wedding Photography

Megan + Ross got married at The Faversham, a popular pub in the centre of Leeds. The Venue is large enough to accommodate weddings of all sizes and offers a large beautifully lit conservatory for the ceremony and meal and a large nightclub and outdoor space for hosting your reception rain or shine and whatever the time of year.

The weather on the day behaved itself and allowed the guests to enjoy some of the last rays of sunshine of the year. Megan got ready with her mum and a few friends in some renovated apartments on Clarendon Road, which runs just behind the venue. This wedding was very relaxed in terms of formality – their were no official bridesmaids or groomsmen and formal photography was kept to a minimum, which are always my favourite days to cover as it allows me to immerse myself in taking pictures and not worry too much about guarding my chosen location for groups, or reconfiguring my list of shots of the couple in response to changing of weather and light, or turn around in the layout of the venue.

After the ceremony, the couple hired in a musician to entertain everyone through out the afternoon and early evening, and this culminated in the start of the party when folk started to let it all hang a little looser, helped in same part by the steady flow of alcohol. Once the final set had finished the couple did a quick impromptu first dance before being joined eagerly on the dance floor by all of the family and friends.

Megan + Ross sent me this message when they got their photo’s back:

“Wow! The photos are amazing. They are exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much for everything. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and we wish you all the best with your life. We would highly recommend you to anyone, thank you so much for capturing the day.”

Faversham Wedding Photography Leeds |  Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

When I receive a booking to capture a couple’s wedding, that in itself is enough to get me excited about their day. As I watch my diary fill up its one of the most rewarding aspects of my work as it demonstrates an appreciation for the way that I use my camera to capture what I see. Sam + Chris were no exception to this rule and perhaps even more so as they stretched their initial budget so that they could include me as part of the proceedings. There are lots of reasons why one photographer charges more than or less than another, but the reason why decisions are finally made is more often based on the fact that a particular photographer captures images in such a way that their work appeals more than another’s. Its a bit like buying a house, there are lots out there that would serve the function but only a few that feel like home.

Sam + Chris got married at the their old student haunt, The Faversham, which is located within the grounds of the University – a unique location for a wedding less ordinary; their words not mine but I couldn’t agree more. The place is a blank canvas that allows you to put your own mark on the environment and the food looked great, which besides 2 rings and all of your nearest and dearest is pretty much all that you need, plus the photographer to preserve the big day for you and future generations!

I received the following feedback once the couple had seen their photo’s: ” Thanks so much for being part of our special day and capturing some absolutely blinding moments. You made us both feel at ease immediately and we were very comfortable and happy for you to follow us around all day! Thanks again for some beautiful photos.” Here is a small selection of images from Sam + Chris’ wedding that demonstrate the candid nature of the images that I produce on the day.
