Woolley Hall Wedding

Our third wedding in September took us first to Sheffield for the bridal preps and ceremony before driving up the M1 to the lovely village of Woolley near Wakefield. Brenda and Shingai had grown up in the same village in Zimbabwe, but only met each other here in England. Their ceremony was the longest that we have ever know, being over one and a half hours long! We really like Woolley Hall and have never seen it with so many guests. This was a really bright and colourful wedding, with the dancing starting in the church and continuing all day and was in full swing when we finally had to leave and drive home. Besides taking their wedding photographs Brenda and Shingai had also booked us for their wedding video, and I don't think that we have ever used as much tape! A great day and quite an experience for us as well!

Gomersal Park Wedding

Joanne and David were married in September at East Ardsley Church before travelling to their reception in a rather splendid Alvis vintage car. We had arranged with Sandra, the wedding co-ordinator at Oakwell Hall who we know well, to have 20 minutes there to take some couple shots in their grounds, before taking the group photos at Gomersal Park. Fortunately the rain held off, so we didn't require the white umbrellas that we always carry with us. It was also nice to catch up with Jodie and Anthony, who had recommended us after we had covered their wedding at Woolley Hall in 2008.
