A few weeks ago I had the awesome privilege of shooting the wedding of Steph and James over in Leeds.
The day also happened to be my birthday, so it was an early start to get through all the prezzies and a birthday brekkie before jumping in the car and heading over to the couple's home.
We didn't do any bridal prep on this one, just a few snaps in the house before church.
The ceremony was held at The Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Moortown.
The day had started off with blue skies above us, but, as Steph arrived in the Roller, the heavens proper opened up on us. This pretty much repeated itself for the rest of the day - sun, rain, sun. We did a pretty good job of dodging it though!
James was waiting patiently at the front. He didn't look nervous though - he looked as excited as a kid at Christmas!
The Bridal party soon made their way down the aisle and we got down to business.
Pretty soon the hymns had been sung, vows had been said and kisses had been kissed.
The happy couple walked out into the sunshine as man and wife.
And got bombarded by confetti!
We had a few shots in the grounds and just made it back to the cars before we got wet again. See what I mean about the rain?!
Next stop - the reception.
The rest of the evening was held at the Castle Grove Masonic Hall. A quaint Victorian Manor House tucked out of the way in Headingley.
The drinks were soon flowing, the kids were soon running and everyone was soon letting their hair down and having a good time!
We stole away a few times to get some sneaky photos, but pretty soon it was time for meals and speeches.
And what speeches they were.
I can hand on heart say that this is the only wedding where I've laughed out loud and then had to wipe a tear away within minutes of each other. The amount of family love that was on show was beautiful.
The rest of the evening was more drinking, more laughing, more running around and then some pretty serious dancing. We squeezed a cake cut and a first dance in there somewhere too!
Thanks for having me guys - you were awesome!
Here are a few images from their day.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
