Elizabeth & Scott | Elslack Wedding Photography
The Church of All Saints, Elslack Wedding
Liz and Scott’s Sunday Elslack wedding started out a little rainy. Everyone was praying for the sun to shine (which it did, fortunately). When we saw the dress, we were in love – off the shoulder top, corset back and flared skirt. It was so glamorous and looked even more amazing when Liz put it on. It wasn’t until editing we realised that we had both photographed it. Mary had snapped the dress inside while taking bridal prep detail shots. Jon had photographed it from outside. He captured her dress, hanging in the window of the farmhouse, before leaving to meet the groom. Liz looked beautiful, and her sunflower flower choice was a beautiful, bright theme.
Bridal & Groom Prep
Meanwhile, Jon met up with a somewhat delayed groom and groomsmen. They had spent the morning looking after the couple’s daughter and flowergirl, Sophia. Scott, Sophia and the boys met Jon at the Tempest Arms Pub reception venue. There was little time to attach buttonholes and making the reception perfect.
First Look from brides father
When Liz’s Dad finally caught a glimpse, it was a genuinely emotional moment. Liz was travelling with her dad via horse and cart to the wedding, with Jon and Mary following behind. These are some of our favourite shots. Father and daughter together, looking out over the Yorkshire countryside.
Wedding in The Parish Church of All Saints
They married at the Parish Church of All Saints Broughton for this Elslack wedding. This local, old church is light and bright inside. We arrived to lots of guests were making their way inside having gotten lost on the country roads!
Sadly, the church had rules in place that photographers were to remain at the back during the service. Jon was able to grab some shots of the boys as Liz entered. Scott welling up as Liz comes down the aisle is a favourite shot of ours. Despite the strict church restrictions we worked around this. We were still able to get some beautiful shots of their union!
The Tempest Arms Wedding Reception
We loved the Tempest Arms reception venue as we were able to get two angles of them cutting the cake. One from below and one from above! Friends had made their cake, and Scott had a little fun before cutting the cake. A friend sang to entertain guests as they arrived and you could feel the happy vibes of everyone. The day was full of laughing and joking.
Dancing the Night Away at the Tempest Arms
Weddings have a habit of flying by too quickly. Soon it was time for dinner and the hilarious speeches. Scotts best man put on his powerpoint which had everyone choked up. With lots of fun heckling by guests, the first dance to Birdy – Wings. Liz and Scott had Paolo Nutini – Pencil Full Of Lead play next. A fantastic song for getting everyone dancing the night away!
