A DIY wedding at East Keswick Hall

East Keswick Hall in Leeds is officially our new favourite wedding venue in Yorkshire. It is beautiful and perfect if you’re looking for countryside wedding venue up north. Shanna and Dominic knew that East Keswick Hall was the perfect fit for their wedding day as soon as they visited it. As big outdoorsy folks and farm lovers, the natural, relaxed surroundings and cow filled fields of East Keswick ticked all their wedding boxes!

The couple chose a rustic DIY theme for their wedding day, which fit in flawlessly with their unrivalled views. Shanna used her creative skills to make sure that the wedding looked beautiful. She made all of her rustic decorations, bunting and even her wedding cake! We think it was just perfect for their homemade do!

Wedding at Immaculate Heart of Mary

Jon joined the groom at his brother and best man’s home where Dominic was getting ready with his groomsmen and family. Meanwhile, Mary joined Shanna and her girls at the maid of honour Holly’s cottage in Horsforth for bridal prep. Bridesmaid Roisin had been sure to pack her statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague, which did a great job in keeping the rain at bay for the wedding afternoon. The day had started a little rainy and gloomy, but it didn’t put a dampener on anyone’s mood!

Vintage Morris Minor

It was quickly time to head over to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Chapel Allerton, Leeds, for the wedding ceremony. Dominic was welcoming guests and waiting nervously along with his best man! Shanna and her bridal party arrived before long, and the lovely, personal service took place. Shanna’s friend from college, Fr Josh, performed the ceremony. The guests headed out to throw confetti over the newlyweds before they were driven away by the maid of Honour Holly in a vintage blue Morris Minor.

Natural Wedding Photography

During a driving break from ceremony to reception, we pinched Dominic and Shanna away to explore some of the beautiful fields in East Keswick. It was rainy and muddy to we made sure to position our couple and then move around to get many different angles during their portraits. Even on a wet day wheat fields will always look gorgeous for your wedding photography portraits. Shanna and Dominic were total naturals in front of the camera after their engagement shoot with us!

Huge congrats to Shanna and Dominic on putting together this awesome wedding day and thank you for inviting Stories Of I Do along to capture it.
