Wedding photography at Fixby Hall, Huddersfield

I first met Becci and James in 2015 at their house, where we and their parents had a lovely and lively chat about the ideas and plans for their wedding day at Fixby Hall in Huddersfield. I knew it would be a special day, as they are such a fun and romantic couple. I certainly wasn’t disappointed!

Charming and spectacular location

They were blessed with a fabulous day for photos, as the light was amazing, with just a possibility of rain, which actually made for a wonderful sky and the location is such an interesting place!

I arrived in the morning down the winding woodland drive to the hall to capture some getting ready pics of the bride and her bridesmaids who were hidden away in the ladies locker room. It was a perfect place for the girls to have some fun with plenty of space to prepare for the big day ahead.

Natural and informal photography

As the hall itself is Grade Two listed and has a lot of history and quirky charm, it’s so photogenic. Everywhere you look is another photo opportunity, from the panoramic views to the sweeping staircase this certainly is one of the best venues in Huddersfield for a celebration. The groom and groomsmen were just arriving also, dressed in their tweed suits which were very in keeping with the character of the hall. Ben the best man had the rings and a rather amazing speech in his pocket too!

The bride and groom had thought of everything including homemade chutney as favours which was presented in jars on a charming antique dresser which they brought from home specially for the occasion!

There may have been some tears shed when Becci entered the room for the ceremony with her Dad, but there was plenty of laughter too. These two made it such a joyful and relaxed experience for all the guests. After they had signed the register then it was time to do some of the family photos and a large group shot of all the friends and family, at Fixby you’re split for choice for a backdrop for the photos. Everyone braved the drizzle and we got lots of great photos of the newlyweds, even one with a big rainbow overhead! We did have to dash out mid-meal to get this shot, but the couple agreed it was worth it!

After the meal it was party time and I stayed around to capture some shots of the first dance and people having an amazing night, not least the new Mr and Mrs Watts, who were dancing the night away. Congratulations to you both and thank you for letting me follow you around for the day!
