Wedding Photography St Cuthbert's Church, Ackworth and Xscape, Castleford for Kayleigh and Gareth

Kayleigh and Gareth have become good friends, we photographed their son, Logan, as a baby, we were wedding photographers for their best friends, Nicola and Nick, and also for Gareth's mum, Hazel and her husband, Keith.  

The couple chose St Cuthbert's church in Ackworth for their 4 pm ceremony.  We've worked at this lovely church before but Kayleigh and Gareth's reception venue was a new one for us and presented some very interesting locations and backdrops for their photographs - Xscape.  As Castleford wedding photographers, this is right on our doorstep.  

We started the day with Kayleigh, her sister, Ellie, and best friend, Nicola, in Ackworth, as the girls had their nails done.  The next stop was for photographs in the Snobar at Xscape to photograph the function room expertly dressed in black and white by Stacey Benson of Chantilly Flowers, before we joined the girls again at Kayleigh and Gareth's house and got our first look at Kayleigh's spectacular dress.

Gareth and Nick were already waiting at St Cuthbert's when we arrived and we had a good time taking photographs of the boys.  It was also nice to have a few minutes spare to photograph the bridesmaids before Kayleigh arrived with her proud dad, Albert.

After the ceremony and with the weather managing to stay dry, we did all the family groups at the church door before we left for Xscape.  Efficient organisation from Nick and Nicola meant that we quickly ran through the groups, leaving plenty of time when we arrived at the reception venue.

After some fun photos with the bridal party and a big group shot taken inside the Xscape complex, it was time to get creative with photographs of the new Mr and Mrs Durham. As wedding photographers at Xscape, we were well and truly spoilt for choice when it came to the backdrops we had to play with and Kayleigh and Gareth were a joy to work with, incredibly enthusiastic and loads of fun.  They were even allowed a few minutes for photographs on the ski slope, Kayleigh donning a pair of wellies and a thick coat before venturing into the snow.

After the buffet, first dance, father and daughter and mother and son dance, we had a few final images we just had to take - evening photographs outside Xscape just as it was coming dark.

Guys we hope you love the images as much as we do!
