Oakwell Hall Weddings

Oakwell Hall Wedding Photographers

Oakwell Hall and it’s stunning, recently renovated barns are one of our favourite venues for a Leeds Wedding and a location which we just can’t get enough of.

I’m not sure what it is about Oakwell Hall weddings, but I’m sure there must be something in the water. There’s certainly something special about the couples who get married there anyway. A few months ago we shared Bex and Dom’s wedding on the blog, we struggled to get across just how well we connected with them both and for us this is another one of those days. When we first met Charlotte and George we knew they would be a special couple that we would remember forever. Over the last two years we’ve loved getting to know them both more, from Charlotte’s love of cows (I think obsession is probably more accurate) to George’s love of cycling, they are one of those couples that we could just spend forever chatting to. One thing we love about all of our couples is how much their photos mean to them and Charlotte and George were no exception. We had a few ideas in mind already but when Charlotte let us know that she had arranged a visit to a local farm it was hard to imagine a better spot for a some couple shots (Their engagement shoot earlier this year also featured Charlotte’s favourite animal!).

One of the things that keeps our job so interesting is the fact that every wedding is just so unique, and from the pumpkins grown on their allotment to the leaf shaped confetti cut out by one of the bridesmaids, Charlotte and George’s day was a real labour of love – and it showed. I think when couples put so much time and thought into their day they end up with something more than just a beautifully decorated room. They end up with the kind of day that everyone gets involved in, friends and family helping out where they can so that when the wedding day finally rolls around everyone is that little bit more invested. Arriving at Oakwell Hall with George it was lovely to see everyone full of excitement and ready to really enjoy the day.

Having said that, even without the build up to the wedding I think that everyone would have been just as invested in the day. Charlotte and George are that kind of couple, they are the kind of people who are one in a million as individuals and together they are completely unforgettable. Seeing all of their guests having so much fun made it even more obvious to both of us that Charlotte and George are people that everyone looks forward to spending time with. I’m certain that although we’ve finished our job as their photographers, we’ll be look forward to seeing them again as friends before too long!

It’s hard to know quite where to begin with this blog post. It was a little under two and a half years ago that we first met Bex and Dom and, as is often the way with a big build up, we’ve looked forward to their wedding for quite some time now! You may remember their Malham Cove Engagement shoot from earlier this year where we spent the afternoon clambering over rocks and trying our best not to steal their dog Barney when we said goodbye. It’s hard to see anyone not getting on with a couple like this and in the days before their wedding we found ourselves looking forward to the weekend, not just to shoot, but to see Bex and Dom again.

It didn’t surprise either of us to see that one of the most touching things about the wedding was the incredible group of friends they have. With no shortage of bridesmaids and groomsmen the excitement started early and looking back through the images one of the things that struck us was just how happy and energetic everyone was, from getting ready right through to midnight when it was clear that nobody wanted to leave!

I remember when we started shooting weddings, I think both of us were taken by surprise just how much we loved it and we made a promise to each other that we would never lose that passion for what we do. We saw so many people who didn’t seem to love it, that had lost their passion, that we wondered if it got boring after a while. Sitting here, looking through Bex and Dom’s photos which (with a bit of checking, was our 228th wedding) I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that we won’t ever lose our passion for what we do. If anything we get more invested in the weddings, and the people we meet, with every wedding season that passes. When you meet people as welcoming as everyone at Bex and Dom’s wedding, and see couples enjoying their day this much, it’s pretty impossible to imagine that there’s a better job for either of us.

Hi Everyone!

Chris and I have another Sneak Peek to share with you all! Becci and Craig chose the wonderful Oakwell Hall for their wedding at the end of September – which we always think is a beautiful venue. Chris chose the Sneak Peek for our Facebook page and really liked some of the black and white ones I had edited, so I decided to include mostly black and white ones on here too! We always tell our couples that if they wish to see the photograph in colour as well it’s not a problem. Becci and Craig had arranged some outdoor games to entertain the guests and had decorated their tables with photographs from their past which was a really nice touch. It was a lovely day and a great pleasure to be a part of it. We’ve covered Oakwell hall before and it would have been quite easy to maybe get some of the same shots as before – but that’s not how Chris and I work. We try to get a feel for each couple, capturing the moments to suit the atmosphere on the day. We always like being creative but never repetitive. Hope you all enjoy the photos! Look forward to sharing some more with you really soon.

Only 2 more weddings till our own!! The countdown is on!
