The Holiday Inn Barnsley Wedding
Julie and Sean had a beautiful August wedding day at Holiday Inn Barnsley with all their family and friends.
On the wedding morning I met Julie and her bridesmaids at the Holiday Inn Barnsley where the hair and makeup was taking place. The dresses were hung up against the window, and there was a buzz of excitement in the room as everyone was getting ready for the day ahead.
Meanwhile, Sean was downstairs welcoming guests as they arrived. When everyone was seated in the wedding ceremony room, Julie began to make her way downstairs. Everyone smiled as she walked down the aisle, but her eyes were fixed firmly on Sean.
After the ceremony we went outside to the Holiday Inn Barnsley’s Secret Garden. We used the steps as a backdrop for all the formal group photography before heading into the garden for more intimate couple wedding portraits. It was a gorgeous sunny day, and the gardens were bursting with colour.
When the formal wedding photographs were done, we all headed back inside where I continued to capture the wedding day in a natural documentary photography style. The guests made the most of the large venue and the lovely weather, using the seating areas both inside and out.
The speeches came before the wedding breakfast and had everyone in fits of laughter while dinner was served. It was a great way to start the afternoon celebrations. The evening reception seemed to come around too quickly, and soon everyone had joined Julie & Sean on the dancefloor after their first dance.
It was an incredible day from start to finish, full of laughter and fun!
