Wedding photographers Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

Rebecca and Simon's wedding at Scapegoat Hill baptist church and Crow Hill, Marsden on Saturday, 10 April 2010

We've had the pleasure of getting to know Becky during the months leading up to her wedding as she has visited our studio for two portrait sessions and she's an absolute joy to photograph.  We had been looking forward very much to her big day and it was our privilege to share the celebrations as she tied the knot with Simon.  As Huddersfield wedding photographers, it was nice to work at two new venues - Scapegoat Hill baptist church and Crow Hill, a lovely country house in Marsden.  

Our first stop was at Becky's parents' house near Holmfirth for getting ready photographs and pictures of her gorgeous gown and accessories before driving the short distance to meet Simon and the guys who were already walking up the road to the church as we arrived.  They looked very smart in top hat and tails!

With few restrictions placed on us by a very accommodating and friendly vicar, Alex was able to capture some wonderful images as Becky and Simon exchanged their vows.  The church has no centre aisle but a balcony provided a great aerial viewpoint for Janet to get some superb pictures.  The church staff very kindly arranged for part of the inner roof which keeps the heat in to be taken off to allow the couple's ceremony to be photographed from above and it was definitely well worth it.  Our sincere thanks to them for making this happen. 

Following the ceremony, a few photographs at the church and confetti at the gate, we set off to Crow Hill ahead of the couple and their guests so that we were ready and waiting for their arrival.  The sun shone all day long which meant that everyone was happy to stay outside enjoying champagne and canapes whilst we completed the group shots.

After the wedding breakfast and speeches, we were able to make the most of the longer daylight hours for a few photographs outside, followed by some romantic and artistic images in the bridal suit with its lovely chaise longue and our beautiful bride!

Our last job was to cover Becky and Simon's first dance in the marquee to Elbow's "One Day Like This."  The colours from the disco lights were just amazing - we love these dance shots.  Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Hammond and thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers.   

Please send us an email with your comments - thank you

  1. Alex and Janet - Many thanks for your beautiful work at my sister Becky's wedding to Simon this April, Although I am yet to see their full album of professional images from yourselves the work on the site here is wonderful!

    You were both fantastic people to have around, not too intrusive and yet simultaneously capturing all the important bits of the wedding in all their glory!

    Many thanks for all your hard work
