Katie + Joel

The 4th September 2017 was the wedding day of Katie & Joel, and what a very beautiful wedding day it was. The venue was East Riddlesden Hall, a 17th century manor house in Keighley, West Yorkshire. I joined Katie and her Mum Julie & bridemaids getting ready in the gorgeous home of Lynne – a close friend of Julie. What a stunning place to get ready, and I really loved that staircase!

I joined Joel and the guests eagerly anticipating the arrival of the bride. The barn looked amazing and had been incredibly decked out. When Katie arrived, her proud Dad walked her down the aisle. There was a lot of laughing, smiling and more giggling during this service – the vibe was definitely a happy one  – these two were definitely ready to tie-the-knot!

After the service people gathered outside for confetti throwing, drinking and Canapes eating. We also did some group photos by the lake. Then onto some couple shots with the happy twosome – these were pretty laid-back and I think I captured their lovable nature.

The wedding breakfast followed – the barn was such an atmospheric setting for the meal and speeches.

After the meal guests headed outside again before the partying started! I think the pictures show the party atmosphere well! But what was very clear on this day and hopefully reflected in the images was how happy everybody was  – many people had travelled wide and far – family & friends and being together celebrating this happy occasion was at the very heart of this lovely day x
