Yesterday, Clare & I photographed the Jackie & James’s Woodlands Hotel wedding at a stunning grade ll listed boutique hotel, situated in beautiful grounds in Leeds, Yorkshire.
The weather was, shall we say, ‘variable’ – during Jackies preparations most seasons seemed to pass in the space of a few hours.
But it was bright and clear more often than not, and especially when it counted, after the ceremony while guests mingled on the hotel veranda
I was under strict instructions from the girls not to snap them till they were at least partially made up, so I busied myself with the details.
I’m feeling this dress-hanging-in-the-window action. Jackie had a bit of a mission getting this badboy, as it was no longer in production and she had to fly it over from Portugal!
Partially made up time! Jackies friend Sharon did her makeup and did a wicked job on her eyes.
Clare was over with James & the chaps, and their totally AWESOME grannies. They reminded me of my nana.
Here comes the bride!
Mr & Mrs!
The everyone shot.
The rings! I was particularly pleased with this one, with it’s graphic lines coming from a black piano top, it’s hinge & the wall behind.
They had a New York theme, and had this fab cake specially made!
If you saw Jackie & James’s pre-wed (post here), you’ll remember we did it late in the evening and caught some lovely golden evening light.
I popped my head out the marquee to see what was a’gwan and guess what I saw again!
So we had another skip about in the last rays!
I’m also pleased with this one, as I tagged up with the DJ and asked if he could ask guests to surround the dancefloor to line the shot.
Cheers to both Jackie & James – It was most excellent joining them & their near and dear in celebrating their Woodlands wedding. I’ll get their images to them soon, and we’ll host a client area for guests to see their finished images, but in the meantime I hope they enjoy their honeymoon in the the Dominican Republic!
