Caroline & Andrew’s Day
Caroline and Andrew asked me to be their photographer at their relaxed wedding in Leeds. They kept the ceremony intimate, with just their closest friends and family.
When we first spoke, Caroline told me that neither Andrew nor herself were really photography people. They would much rather be in the background of images, or not at all! Like many couples they did, however, want some photographs of their wedding day.
After a lengthy discussion we decided they only needed their wedding photographer between the start of the ceremony at Leeds Town Hall and the bus arriving to take them to the reception at The Mustard Pot.
On the day of the wedding I met a fairly nervous Andrew in the Ceremony room at Leeds town hall looking incredibly smart in his blue suit and art deco tie. The bridal party arrived, bringing so much sparkle with them!
Caroline walked down the aisle with one of her flower girls to Red Hot Chilli Peppers: Hard to Concentrate. I’d never really listened to the lyrics before, but they’re perfect for a wedding.
The building work being done on Leeds town hall meant it was a less than ideal spot for the group photographs. Luckily we’d already spoken about this at the pre-wedding shoot and planned to walk down to Park Square just a few minutes away. Here we took advantage of the trees and flowerbeds to create a beautiful backdrop, and the flower girls loved running around the grass. The bus arrived to take the guests to the Mustard Pot and I left the newlyweds to enjoy their day.
My favourite part of the day was the wedding flowers. They looked stunning, and seemed to reflect the light. When I looked closer it was because they were coated in glitter!
