Rigby suite wedding

Rachael & Luke’s day

Rachael and Luke were married at Christ Church, Ardsley before going on to their huge reception at the Rigby Suite, Barnsley.

When I first spoke to Rachael about her wedding plans I was so excited. She had chosen a local venue with the ability to cater for all the guests she wanted on the day. Having a big family meant that cutting down the guest list was difficult, something I can empathise with. They booked a half day wedding photography package, from Bridal preparations to the wedding breakfast.

The morning of the wedding I met her and the bridesmaids at her Mum’s house. The outside of the house had been lovingly decorated with banners and rosettes matching the colour scheme of the day; it looked wonderful.

When the girls were all ready, they congregated in the living room where Rachael gave them thank you gifts for being bridesmaids. They each had earrings and a necklace that they wore during the day. The car arrived, and it was time for the bridesmaids to go to the church. This gave me the opportunity to capture some final photographs of Rachael and her Dad before their car arrived.

At the Church, Luke and his best man were patiently waiting for everyone to come inside. It was such a beautiful day that most of the guests were waiting in the sunshine! The two ushers handed out the order of service to the guests as they slowly made their way to their seats.

Luke’s face lit up when he saw Rachael walking down the aisle. During the ceremony the Vicar presented the newlyweds with a pack of toilet rolls. She told us she gives one to every couple in hope that it will remind them their marriage should be soft, strong, and very long!

After the ceremony we made our way to the Rigby Suite, Barnsley. It’s part of the Metrodome leisure complex, and while walking through the main doors definitely has a leisure building feel; however, going through the partition to the reception area is like walking into a new world.

There was mood lighting to fit in with any colour scheme, and the tables and chairs were decorated beautifully.

Before the wedding breakfast I took Rachael and Luke into the Carers garden at the back of the building for their couple’s photographs. There was still work being done in certain areas which restricted where we could go, but the landscape in the background more than made up for it.

My favourite part of the day was Rachael’s veil. It was the same one her Mum wore on her wedding day. They’d modified it a little, adding sparkle to the centre of the flowers to tie in with the dress, but I thought it was so lovely to have such a sentimental item so close.
