Wedding Photographer Wentbridge House

Wedding photography at St Margaret's church, North Elmsall and Wentbridge House for Emma and Scott on 17 August 2010

A Tuesday for the marriage of Emma to Scott in the same church where Emma's parents were married, and a rainy weather forecast turned out to be wrong, thankfully, except for a tiny bit of drizzle later in the day.  The couple had been trying to plan their wedding day for a long time, but when Scott joined the RAF, he couldn't take any leave until he had completed his training.  We were privileged because we had been chosen as the couple's wedding photographers long before they actually fixed a date and we were so happy when everything finally came together and the date was booked. 

As West Yorkshire wedding photographers, we were delighted to be asked to capture Emma and Scott's day.  They are a lovely couple and Emma is the first member of Wentbridge House's staff to celebrate her wedding at this beautiful venue.  Our first port of call was in the bridal suite where Emma, sister Amy and mum, Lorraine were getting ready.  Emma's fairytale gown was hanging against the wood panelling in the room and  her Vivienne Westwood shoes caused a bit of a stir, so much so that David, the videographer, took a picture of them and texted it to his wife to show her! 

After capturing some images as Emma's dress was laced up, we said goodbye to the girls and set off for the picturesque St Margaret's church to meet up with Scott and his attendants.  Scott looked very handsome in his RAF uniform.

This beautiful horse made friends with a bridesmaid as we waited for our bride.

Emma arrived in an elegant Bentley with her proud dad Steve.  The car was a big surprise from her mum and dad and we had been let into the secret.  Emma thought she was being driven to church in the family car but she couldn't figure out how she would fit into it wearing that huge dress and just who would be doing the driving...

After the ceremony and confetti at the church gate, we set off for Wentbridge House.  With a small wedding party consisting of close family and friends, the groups were quickly in the bag and the only time it decided to drizzle was when everyone was out on the lawn for the big group shot.  With Alex hanging out of the bridal suite window ready to take the photographs, we did appreciate you guys not running for cover because the drizzle only lasted for about a minute or two, allowing us to continue outside - just what we were hoping for.

Emma made it very clear at our meeting before the wedding that her photographs were very, very important, she was up for anything we suggested and she really wanted some fun shots.  We were happy to oblige and so were Emma's beautiful bridesmaids.  We love a happy, fun wedding. 

Beautiful, smiling Emma in that fabulous dress - stunning!

The newly married Mr and Mrs Dickens had some photographs taken together we before we headed inside to photograph the wedding breakfast room and their incredible wedding cake.

Our plans to take some artistic and contemporary images after dinner, in a location which might not be an obvious choice for wedding photographs, came together in what remained of the daylight.  Wind isn't usually welcome on wedding days but it came in very useful for this perfectly timed shot which we just love!  Emma was a star when it came to working with us to get these images. 

The couple's first dance...

Our coverage of Emma and Scott's special day ended with the couple and their guests releasing Chinese lanterns on the lawn, which was another surprise they hadn't known anything about.  Both sets of parents really did them proud with a wonderful day which was a pleasure to be part of.
