Heaton Mount, Bradford Wedding Photography | Angela and Cerith

Angela and Cerith booked us to be their St Paul's Church, Birkenshaw wedding photographers and it was our third time photographing a wedding at this church, but our very first time providing the wedding photography at Heaton Mount, Bradford.  This year's wedding season has seen us working at several new venues and although we enjoy working at familiar ones, we're always excited when couples offer us the chance to photograph somewhere new.   

First stop was with Angela at her mum and dad's home not far from the church.  We were given a  very warm welcome and spent an enjoyable hour or so capturing bridal preparations and pretty accessories, including three necklaces, as Angela hadn't yet decided which one she would be wearing!  We left the girls to their finishing touches and arrived at the church just as Cerith did, giving us plenty of time to get the groom's portraits before Angela arrived with her dad.     

Each time we've photographed a wedding at St Paul's there has been a different vicar and you never know whether the rules regarding photographing the ceremony will have changed when someone new takes over.  Happily, the current vicar had the same relaxed and accommodating attitude and Alex was allowed to take photographs from the front, with Janet capturing the long shots and atmosphere of the service from the back.

The couple came out to congratulations, hugs and confetti before the journey to the reception venue and the start of their Heaton Mount wedding photography.  With good weather, we stayed outside to capture the family groups, some fun shots with the bridal party, and a short couple photo session before the wedding breakfast started.

After the wedding breakfast and speeches, the four of us welcomed the chance to get outside again.  It was a bit cooler and the sun had gone down making the early evening light much softer.  We noticed that Angela never stopped smiling all day, which shows in the photographs.  In fact, when we tried for romantic expressions, she often burst out laughing!

A singer provided live entertainment during the evening party and the new Mr and Mrs Roberts danced their first dance together as husband and wife.  Thank you for the privilege of being your Heaton Mount wedding photographers, for making us laugh and for being so complimentary about our work and our service before you've even seen any of your photographs.  We hope you love them!
