Knottingley Wedding Photography for Emma and Richard

Emma and Richard were put in touch with us by another photographer who very kindly recommended us as he was booked for a wedding on their date.  We were really happy when they booked us for their wedding photography at St Botolph's Church, Knottingley, and as the couple live only a short walk from the church, that's exactly what Emma had planned, a walk to the church with her dad and her huge entourage of ten bridesmaids and three flower girls!  We started at the house as the girls got ready and Emma was very chilled out and relaxed.  She was ready well before we had to leave to meet the boys and this meant the chance of some lovely bridal portraits in the garden.  Rich was obviously keen to score some serious points with his new bride and a pair of gold Jimmy Choos did the trick!  We stopped off at the Steam Packet pub where we knew Rich and the boys would be starting their celebrations with a pint or two ahead of the ceremony, before we set off to the church for a few groom portraits and a chat with the vicar.  A very loud rendition of "Going to the chapel and we're gonna get married" heralded Emma, her dad and the bridesmaids' arrival at the church.  This enthusiasm carried throughout the ceremony with the best hymn singing we've ever heard and even the vicar looked suitably impressed!  After a volley of confetti we left to start the wedding photography at Holmfield Plant Centre, Ferrybridge where a Papakata Tipi had been set up for the reception.  This was a relaxed and informal wedding full of fun and laughter and loads to entertain the guests, delicious food provided by Farmer Copley, photo booth props, a pork pie cake, a live band, an ice cream van, cigars, flat caps, a cartwheeling flower girl, a crazy bridal party and perfect weather.  Thank you Emma and Rich, the new Mr and Mrs Briggs, for allowing us to share your big day.
