Sarah and Michael’s wedding took place at Oulton Hall near Leeds back in October. An 18th century mansion house, converted into a luxury hotel, Oulton Hall isn’t far from the centre of Leeds, but far enough to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.
Our lovely couple both stayed at the hotel the night before their wedding, so when we arrived, Colin joined Michael and the boys as they got ready, whilst I joined Sarah.
We photographed Sarah’s brother’s wedding earlier in the year and now he was a groomsman for Michael, along with Michael’s three young sons and nephew, and his two brothers as best men!
I could see all the emotions on Sarah’s face throughout the morning. There were smiles, tears, and even a few moments of panic! So as we walked downstairs to the ceremony, I couldn’t wait for Michael to see his bride–and what a lovely, big smile he had waiting for her!
After an emotional ceremony, it was time for a quick drink and some family photos before we whisked the happy couple off for their bride and groom session.
Sarah and Michael are absolute proof to me of how valuable a pre-wedding/engagement shoot can be. They were a little nervous when we met up for that, but on their wedding day there was no hint of nerves and I vividly remember Sarah saying she felt she knew exactly what she was doing now. That’s what it’s all about for me, and I loved how relaxed and happy they were for their wedding photos–it really shows!
What did Sarah and Michael say about us?
“Thank you so much to both of you, you did an amazing job throughout the whole day and settled my nerves! Thanks from us both!
I have spent over two hours going through [the photos] and remember each scenario of each shot (the good times and the panicking times)! All the best to you and Colin, such professional photographers!”
