Wortley Hall is a large manor house in South Yorkshire and is set within its own extensive grounds. The venue and its setting provide the perfect ambience for your wedding day celebration.

Lisa + Lee’s Wortley Hall Wedding Photography

Lisa + Lee got married at Wortley Hall and booked me for 4 hours to cover all of the main events. The ceremony was scheduled for the afternoon which ensured that everyone had a very relaxed start to the day. It was a Thursday wedding too, meaning that most people that attended got a 4 day weekend that week by taking Friday off as well!

I photographed Lee’s best man’s wedding earlier in the year and the two of them are both talented tattoo artists so photographing both of their weddings was a very flattering opportunity for me.

The venue is conveniently located in South Yorkshire, which is within close commuting distance from Leeds. Set within beautifully kept grounds the building also offers lots of character, which is great to work with when taking photographs. The weather on the day provided more than we could have asked of it as we headed towards the pretty mild winter.

Lisa got ready with her bridesmaid who also provided make-up duties and her son’s dipped in and out of the room to provide necessary banter as the preparations progressed. Lee got ready at the venue also so I was able to split the time pre-ceremony between the two of them and the arriving guests.

When Lee did his best man duties earlier in the year he replaced the rings with haribo jelly sweets, which made a great picture on the day, so I was looking forward to seeing what he had in store for his own wedding. Lisa made a grand entrance with her son’s on each arm and as Lee turned to see his bride enter the room, he slipped some glasses from his pocket that had springing eyes. When Lisa got to the top of the aisle, Lee’s eye’s literally popped out of his head!

Wortley Hall Wedding Photography | Sheffield Wedding Photographer

Emma + Neil initially stumbled across my work on Pinterest after I photographed a wedding at Silkstone Church close to Barnsley, which is where the couple intended to marry themselves. When they got in touch I instantly remembered the church as the vicar who conducts the ceremonies there is really friendly and not some one you might forget easily, and I think it is safe to safe that she certainly enhances the whole experience of getting married in her church. As well as the personable people, the building itself is very ornate and lets in beautiful pools of light which are fun to work with to create striking photos. I always enjoy a church ceremony, not just because of the sing along, but because of the freedom I have to unobtrusively capture the proceedings and move around to add some variety to my coverage.

Emma got ready with her bridesmaids and children at Wortley Hall where the reception was planned, and I spent a couple of hours with them before heading to over to meet up with Neil and the arriving guests. Emma’s children added a family element to the day and her young daughter injected her entire personality into the day and I remember at one point she stood at the top of the steps during the reception shouting “where’s my bride?!”, which from a 5 year old created quite a funny scene.

I got this feedback from Emma when she got her photo’s back: “They are amazing!! Love them!!! We definitely made the right choice of photographer, the pictures are exactly what we wanted.” Here are a few photo’s from their big day to demonstrate the style of photography that I produce at weddings.
