Bride and groom in a AC Cobra RAM 5.7 V8 1973 classic car at their Woodsome Hall Wedding

As professional photographers, Julie and I get to shoot at some really stunning venues, and we were particularly looking forward to photographing this wedding at Woodsome Hall.

Woodsome Hall is a golf club wedding venue based in Huddersfield. It features a stunning 16th-century clubhouse, which we planned to use for some bride and groom portraits including the wedding breakfast and cake cut later on the wedding day.

The Wedding

Where do we start… We have known the couple for a few years now, and have photographed both the children in our Beverley studio. So we were honoured when they what us to capture their wedding day. Due to the church and wedding venue being nearly 2 hours away, with an early start on Saturday morning Julie and I opted to stay the night before. Hannah had organised accommodation for us to stay in the Dormy House within the grounds of Woodsome Hall, where she and some other family members were staying.  We arrived on Friday afternoon, but visited the Holy Trinity church first for another look around and to confirm route and timings. We were surprised to see everyone arriving while we were there for the rehearsal, great opportunity to meet everyone.

After an early night, it was the morning of the wedding day, after a great breakfast it was time to start… Below is just a small selection of what we captured, happy viewing.

Time to get to Holy Trinity Church Hepworth. Not often that the groom arrives with his son in a AC Cobra Ram 5.7 V8 1973. Plus I got a little ride in it also, obviously only for photography purposes 😉

Arrival at Holy Trinity Church

Here comes the bride! Not to be outdone in wedding car styling, Hannah arrived at Holy Trinity church in Hepworth in a classic 1938 Morris 8. It looked stunning in a royal blue colour, which went well with their wedding colour palette.

The one thing about being a professional photographer is knowing when to capture the moment. Hannah waiting to enter the church with her dad, the look says it all.
