Vikki and Dave chose to have their pre-wedding session at their wedding venue, The Holiday Inn Barnsley.
I’ve photographed lots of weddings at the Holiday Inn Barnsley over the years, but it’s always lovely to visit with couples and look for their favourite photograph spots as well as pointing out some of mine.
During their session, we walked around the secret garden together. Vikki and Dave told me their plans for an outdoor wedding ceremony under the stone structure in the garden. We talked about their ceremony, and how fitting all their guests in the space would look.
After exploring the grounds together, we went inside to talk more about the details of their day. We made a plan of group shots, and had all the timings of their wedding day written out – including the bands timings. Dave told me how they were having a stage set up in the largest room for their favourite rock band to play – and the set list sounded amazing.
One of the great things about the Holiday Inn Barnsley is the flexibility. They can host any number of guests, have a variety of menu options and can hold live music as well as DJs, or more informal weddings with a quiet playlist playing throughout the evening.
