ZARA & TERRENCE | NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH | LEEDS MARRIOTT HOTEL | LEEDS | MAY 13TH 2017

Another wedding today, second shooting for Mrs Myers.

Today it was the turn of Zara & Terrence.

The day started, for me, with a quick trip to the brides, Zara’a house, then off to to New Testament Church,

to meet Terrence, before the ceremony.

The ceremony was a really joyous & fun affair – which was enjoyed by all 300 (!) guests πŸ™‚

After a few shots outside the church, it was off to Roundhay Park for a few group shots.

It would have been rude not to use some of the beautiful surroundings for the bride & groom too! πŸ˜‰

Once we got to the Leeds Marriott Hotel, it was straight onto wedding breakfast then speeches.

After the speeches, as it was still a nice day outside, and space was certainly limited in the hotel, with all the 300 guests,

we decided to make the most of Leeds city centre, for some shots of Zara & Terrence πŸ˜‰

PRE WEDDING | FAYE & TOM | OTLEY | MAY 6TH 2017

Today was the turn of Faye & Tom, for their pre wedding shoot.

They chose a venue, literally, 2 minutes away from their house, which was Tom’s local pool! ha

Faye & Tom were a little bit nervous at first, but soon go into the hang of it – especially when we decided to go

for a more natural approach, without & I quote “any cheese”! haha

It was only last week when I met Becky & Russ for their pre wedding shoot @ Gibbon Bridge Hotel and

we were discussing what the weather was going to be like today … Luckily the sun god was on our side!

I started the morning with the bride, Becky & her bridesmaids, whilst waiting for my trusted second shooter,

Mrs Vivienne Myers πŸ˜‰

We spend a few minutes with the groomsmen – when they’d all finally arrived! ha

Then, as it was still quite a nice day, it was outside for the ceremony πŸ™‚

Straight after the ceremony, the bride & groom walked back down the aisle, showered in confetti.

Then, after a quick shot of the page boys, it was time to explore the grounds of Gibbon Bridge.

Luckily, as we’d only been there a week previous, we knew exactly where we were going πŸ˜‰

The speeches were quite emotional to!

The evening had loads of entertainment, including a casino & a caricature artist.

After which, Becky & Russ were able to watch a quick edit of the video of the day – It too was emotional.

The sun was shining for Becky & Russell’s pre wedding shoot @ Gibbon Bridge, which was quite lucky,

as we’d had to re arrange the shoot to this week, due to the last day we had booked, it was pouring with rain,

and the wedding is next Sat πŸ™‚

So little Jamie, along with Mum, Dad & Grandma popped into the studio the other day, for his

first birthday cake smash.

He wasn’t much interested in smashing the cake to be honest, but he was a little star nonetheless.

I arrived at Hornington Manor fairly early on Saturday & Vivienne was already there with the bride &

her bridesmaids.

The venue already looked great & I knew from then, today was going to be a good day, second shooting

the wedding of Liz & Jonny for Vivienne Myers πŸ™‚

As the ceremony was only at 3, and both the bride Β groom were at Hornington, it left lots of

time to get plenty of photographs of the bridal party, the groomsmen & the venue.

I also had time to get the drone out, not for too long though, as it was pretty windy!

wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (37) copy 3

Oh & forgot to mention – Hornington Manor is a working sheep farm too, so there were a few little lambs to

photograph too!

So, just before 3 it was time for Liz & her day to enter the ceremony room πŸ™‚

Straight after the ceremony we grabbed a lovely confetti shot.

Then we grabbed some groups shots – trying to sta out of the windiest parts! ha

As you can see there were loads of brilliant little touches.

wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (227) copy 3

After the groups, it was time for the wedding breakfast & then speeches.

Then, as the sun was setting we took the bride & groom outside for some more portraits .wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (17)wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (365) wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (18)

About 20 minutes after we were treated to an amazing blue sky, and when the guy running the venue said he had some sparklers –

we knew just what to do!

It was finally then time for the cake cutting, the first dance & a father & daughter dance too!
