Martiza and Phil's wedding at Holdsworth House, Halifax on 11 September 2009
Maritza and Phil married at Holdsworth House in Halifax on a beautiful sunny day. Guys you were so lucky with the weather (even if it was a bit too sunny from a photographer's point of view!) This pretty little venue is so full of character, the staff are great and the grounds are really lovely, giving us some wonderful backdrops for the couple's photographs. Before the wedding, we were let into a secret regarding the colour scheme. Although Phil knew it was red and white, he never suspected that the red in the colour scheme included Maritza's gorgeous gown! Maritza and Phil work for the BBC and so does Maritza's make-up artist Jill, who did such a fantastic job. After stepping into that fabulous dress, Maritza looked amazing! Phil's first word to her as she joined him for the ceremony was "Wow!" After the ceremony and with the group photographs in the can, our lovely bride gave us a twirl resulting in some spectacular shots. After dinner and speeches, the couple joined us outside to make the most of the early evening light which by now was a little softer and more flattering. Phil's passion (apart from Maritza, of course) is fast cars and we had a some fun featuring his Lotus in the photographs. Maritza was a lot of fun and up for some fashion posing and although we usually prefer not to have to use umbrellas, in this case we were really enthusiastic about using our stunning red one to create some beautiful, artistic images for her. Thank you so much Maritza and Phil for choosing us as your wedding photographers. We consider it such a privilege, you are a lovely couple and we had a brilliant day with you. Enjoy America!
