Fixby Hall, Huddersfield Wedding Photographers - Katy & Chris

Katy and Chris chose to marry at Chris's local church.  We photographed a wedding there several years ago and it was an image from that wedding that Katy found online and loved. That one image led to her contacting us and we were extremely happy when the couple booked us to be their All Hallows' Church, Almondbury wedding photographers, on the warmest day of the year so far.  

We started at Katy's parents' home and compared to most bridal preparation mornings, it was very quiet and calm as Katy got ready.  We photographed the girlie bits and pieces, including a pair of striking red canvas shoes with white polka dots, embellished with hearts on the fronts.  We did notice that Chris had sneaked his aftershave in with Katy's accessories and yes Chris, we did photograph it for you!

After we'd captured Katy having her make-up applied, we met the boys in Almondbury, in the Woolpack, across the road from the church.  As the pub sign was featured in the background of the image that first captured Katy's attention, it was essential to do something similar with Chris and his attendants, who had some of their own ideas about what would make a good shot!  The ceremony in this beautiful church was conducted by a lovely and very accommodating lady vicar, who allowed us to work unhindered both from the front and the back, before the couple came out into the sunshine as the new Mr & Mrs Smith, to be congratulated and showered with confetti.  

As Fixby Hall wedding photographers, we had some ideas in mind for locations for Katy and Chris's photographs once we had the group shots in the bag.  An early wedding ceremony in summer and being lucky with the weather has so many advantages, not least of all the long daylight hours which allows the photography to be more relaxed and lets the couple have plenty of time to mingle and chat with their guests.  We photographed the wedding breakfast room, which looked beautiful, and credit has to go to Chris for all his hard work dressing it the day before the wedding.  After the speeches, we borrowed the bridesmaids for some fun shots, and Wayne and Mark, our friends from Class Laser Clay, kept the guests entertained.  We spent some time photographing Katy, in her spectacular princess dress, and then Chris joined his bride for a short couple photo session before the evening party started.

Thank you very much Mr & Mrs Smith for booking us for your wedding photography at Fixby Hall.  If you were a guest at Jill and Paul's wedding, why not leave a comment, and if you like our style and are interested in our services, we'd love to hear from you.  Please call us on 01977 730159.
