Wedding Photographer Cedar Court Hotel, Huddersfield | Rachel and Brian

Rachel and Brian booked us for their Cedar Court Hotel, Huddersfield wedding photography following a recommendation and they booked us on the spot as soon as we met.  It's such a huge compliment to be recommended and fantastic when the couple are so sure that you are for them that they don't feel the need to go away and discuss it.  

They chose a very popular date to get married, the first Saturday in August.  The whole of their celebrations took place at the same venue and we started our coverage with Rachel upstairs in one of the hotel suites.  There was lots of laughter and a lively atmosphere and most of the giggles were as a result of the hairdresser's amusing comments and observations which kept everyone, including us, entertained as Rachel had her make-up and hair done.  We photographed her accessories and her dress, which had the most beautiful detail on the back.  

We went downstairs to take photographs of Brian and his best man, meeting Rachel's mum on the way.  She was on her way up to join her daughter and present her with an usual wedding gift, a skateboard.  There was an ongoing joke that Rachel would be getting a skateboard as a wedding present!

We almost managed to complete Brian's photographs with his family before the rain started, but we had to move everyone under the covered entrance for the last few.  Once our groom joined his guests  to mingle for the last few minutes before the ceremony, we went back up to Rachel and hoped that by the time it was over, the rain would have stopped!  

Lovely registrars made for a lovely civil ceremony, and the recessional to "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life" was followed by a Buck's Fizz drinks reception in the lounge.

Rain threatened for the whole of the group photo session and during the course of the day the weather threw everything at us, from wind, bright sunshine and the wet stuff, but Rachel and Brian and their guests took it all in their stride and we managed to get just about everything they wanted before the wedding breakfast, leaving only the bridal party fun shots with their great best man and bridesmaids, and a short couple photo session, to be done after the meal and speeches.  It was dry and overcast by this time and the light was perfect for photography.

Rachel had said she hated photographs of herself but we hope that these will prove her wrong as she looks beautiful!  We really enjoyed working with her to create some gorgeous bridal portraits which will be stunning as large images in the couple's Italian storybook album.    

Thank you very much for choosing us as your Cedar Court Huddersfield wedding photographers. We hope you love your preview images and we look forward to seeing you soon to show you all of them and discuss the design of your album.
