As soon as we met Adam and Fergus, I knew we wanted to be their East Riddlesden Hall wedding photographers! They’re a fantastic couple and had a really clear idea of what they wanted from their wedding photography, and their wedding day. Their plans were for a relaxed, fun day (both grooms wore jeans with tweed jackets) with lots of documentary style photography and some photos of the two of them thrown in for good measure. Just our thing! No formal group shots, no official first dance, and just one speech from Fergus’ brother; it was really going to be their kind of day, done their way, with plenty of time to enjoy themselves with family and friends. Which, let’s face it, is what it’s all about!
Adam and Fergus married at the beautiful National Trust owned East Riddlesden Hall, near Keighley. It’s hard to believe this beautiful property is tucked away in a relatively busy suburb, but after all it has been there since the 17th century!
Wedding celebrations take place in a converted barn, and the decor looked truly amazing for Adam and Fergus’ day, as you’ll see below!
We arrived a little while before the ceremony as guests were being greeted by the soon-to-be married couple. After the ceremony, and drinks reception, it was time for food! Again, the barn and table decor looked just gorgeous. I particularly loved that Adam and Fergus didn’t have a table of their own and circulated around different tables throughout the meal so that they could spend time with everyone; such a lovely idea!
All in all, Adam and Fergus’ day lived up to all of our expectations. Great friends and family enjoying the day, good food, amazing music…and of course, a marriage happened! We truly wish this lovely couple all the best for the future…they seem like a perfect match, who love to make eachother laugh, and as long as there’s laughter, there’s happiness, right? Congratulations again to the new Mr and Mr.
Thanks also to Chloe at East Riddlesden for looking after us on the day.
