Wedding Photography Wentbridge House | Wedding Photographer Leeds | Emily and Gavin

Emily and Gavin chose a Sunday for their wedding at the beautiful St John's church in Oulton.  The weather was typical of a weekend in June - raining!  Arriving at Emily's mum, Elaine's house, where the girls were getting ready, we were greeted by Emily who was more than a bit sad that the weather was a let down and she told us that it had been throwing it down since 4 am!  Well, we weren't up quite that early!  A bit of reassurance that she would still get great pictures regardless of the weather and she did cheer up.  We all cheered up a lot more when the rain stopped shortly before we left for church and it didn't appear again for the rest of the day.  Emily had apparently bought her wedding dress two and a half years ago and what a stunner it was!  She had chosen a very striking hot pink colour scheme and the bridesmaids looked gorgeous in their dresses.  What a bonus that they were all dressed before we had to leave so the pictures of them fastening Emily's dress were made all the more special - much nicer than pjs and dressing gowns!  We met a slightly nervous Gavin for his photographs before Emily's arrival and as we've known Gavin's family for a long time, it was so nice to catch up with his brother and best man, Ryan, and their mum and dad, Ann and Paul.  Emily arrived on time with her proud mum who had the privilege of giving her beautiful daughter away.  We love working at St John's church, not just because it's lovely and light inside and makes for great photographs but because the vicar is really accommodating when it comes to allowing us both the photograph the ceremony and we appreciate this a lot as it allows us to do the best job we can for the couple.  Following Emily and Gavin's marriage, we completed the group shots really quickly at the church before the couple headed off down the long pathway into a shower of confetti, jumped into their car and set off for Wentbridge House for the reception.  As wedding photographers at Wentbridge House we know that it has a beautifully kept lawn but we were concerned that following the heavy rain, it would be soaking wet.  Not ideal for ladies wearing high heeled shoes!  However, the sun came out as everyone arrived and the guests were able to enjoy a Bucks Fizz drinks reception on the lawn whilst we photographed Emily and Gavin with their car.  Returning to the guests, some fun shots with the bridal party were captured along with a handful of photographs of the new Mr and Mrs Ellis before the wedding breakfast and speeches, which included a lovely slideshow of pictures of Emily growing up, put together by her mum who described the day as "Perfect!"  Emily and Gavin, we are so happy that the sun came out for you.  You really deserve a perfect wedding day.  Thank you for choosing us to capture it for you and we hope you like the pictures!
