Sam and Nushi now live in New Zealand, but it was the Yorkshire Dales that beckoned for their romantic wedding at The Old Chapel at The Priests House in Barden in July.
The Old Chapel at The Priests House
Since we last photographed at The Priests House, The Old Chapel has been renovated. It’s now available for wedding ceremonies and events, and what a stunning venue for a wedding! The chapel originally dates from the turn of the 16th century and has been beautifully restored to its former glory. Light floods in through the windows and the dark wood and stonework give such a romantic feel to the room.
Priests House and Old Chapel Wedding Photography
We joined Sam and Nushi shortly before their ceremony was due to begin. Guests gathered in the grounds of The Priests House, ready to be ushered into the chapel shortly before Nushi’s arrival.
Although we only spent a few hours with Sam and Nushi on their day (shorter coverage is available on select dates throughout the year–just ask us for availability) it was clear that they had a very close knit group of friends so it was lots of fun to photograph them. I loved that Nushi had ‘bridesmates’ instead of bridesmaids (her bridal party consisted of three girls and two boys!)
Some of Nushi’s family also made the long journey from Sri Lanka to be with them on their special day, along with guests from several other countries. She and Sam are obviously well loved and supported by friends and family alike.
Nushi made an absolutely stunning bride, and she and Sam were fantastic to work with on their bride and groom session after the ceremony, despite being a little windswept by the Dales weather! I think it only added to the drama and romance of the location.
Guests played outdoor games, or enjoyed drinks inside the Priests House, before heading back in to The Old Chapel for the wedding breakfast and evening reception.
What did Sam & Nushi say about us?
“Thank you so much for making us feel totally at ease at our photo shoot and for being hidden but huge parts of our day. The preview shots are amazing! Thank you again – it was such a pleasure having you at our wedding. We felt so at ease with you as our photographers!”
