When you have the combination of a beautiful bride, a fantastic venue, a dapper groom and a beautiful sunny day, you’re most of the way there to the perfect wedding.
It was our first time photographing a wedding at Crow Hill in Marsden, near Huddersfield and we very much hope to return. Its a fabulous venue with masses of Vintage and stylish detailing. We loved it! Did we mention the sun? It’s been a long time since we saw it at a wedding. We travel the whole country photographing weddings and it’s been very absent recently. I don’t think we expected to find it 20 minutes from our Saddleworth studio at the foothills of the rainy Pennines but find it we did.
Sarah and Scott chose us as photographers for our relaxed and vintage influenced photography. The relaxed atmosphere was very evident when we met Scott and Sarah who were both getting ready in the house at Crow Hill. They were surrounded by children family and friends. It really was a lovely part of the day .
Meanwhile the guests were arriving and renewing friendships outside in the sun with drinks in hand. We had an ideal vantage point to take photographs of the guests, from a window in the room where Sarah was getting ready.
The ceremony was held in a beautiful room with stunning chandelier and intricate plaster work. It was very laid back with some lovely heart felt readings. Sarah looked stunning in her 20’s style gown with vintage lace detailing. Her make up hair and accessories really added extra glamour.
We had a really fun time in the well kept grounds photographing Sarah and Scott. Sarah really likes the vintage style of photography and really got into some fabulous 20’s style posing with some cheeky kissing shots and statuesque posing.
The grounds have a lovely walled garden which we used as a backdrop. We also picked up on the charming little garden shed with cute heart detail in which we captured some vintage hand in hand shots. Amanda also took the opportunity to photograph a gorgeous bridesmaid in front of there. Meanwhile the children were being entertained on the lawn by a balloon artist and entertainer from Jingling Joojong. After the meal and speeches we set up our Vintage country garden photo booth as the music went on into the night. As is grew dark, we headed into the garden again to do some special heart light painting images
A special mention has to be made for Freddy, Sarah and Scott’s 18 month old son, who sadly broke his leg in nursery. This must have been so stressful for all involved, but everyone rallied to make this as easy as possible and we wish him all the best for a quick recovery.
Our warmest congratulations to Sarah and Scott, it was an honour to capture your day -Tim and Amanda.
