Elegant and fun wedding in West Yorkshire
Amelia and Jayjay were so lucky on their wedding day, not only was the weather perfect for photography but their friends and families were an absolute joy to be around. Everybody seemed to know each other (they didn’t!) and they came together to make this the most fabulous day possible.
I first met up with Amelia and Jayjay 18 months before the big day, as I had been recommended by a friend of theirs. We really hit it off from first meeting and I could tell it was going to be a day to remember.
I started the day with the girls and was immediately brought into the house and introduced to everyone by Amelia’s little sister, who was beyond excited! She was a little whirlwind, but very handy to have around as she was helping all the girls, including me! The bride and bridesmaids were so relaxed and just laughing all morning even helping each other with hair and makeup.
When the girls were ready we whisked off to St Peter’s Church at Hartshead, West Yorkshire, which is such a quaint church with panoramic views all around. The boys were all waiting outside and a slightly nervous looking Jayjay was very pleased to see the girls starting to arrive.
Gomersal Lodge wedding breakfast
After the ceremony the guests created a tornado of confetti for the newlyweds to walk through, well that was the idea, everyone got covered! Then it was onto the vintage bus for the guests and the newlyweds sped off to Gomersal Lodge Hotel where the rest of the celebrations were to take place. The hotel is set in parkland and has extensive views and plenty of great places for wedding photography. As you can see the speeches after the wedding breakfast were hilarious, with plenty of characters in the room, it was like a stand-up routine!
The party went on well into the night with their band Elite providing the brilliant soundtrack to the celebration and got everyone up dancing!
