Tim & Emilys Northern Monk Wedding
Arriving at their engagement shoot, it would be fair to say that the pair were hesitant about being in front of the camera. When we first met, they warned us that they weren't a photo-loving couple. However, it was clear from the offset that this was a pair ready to have some fun and push the boundaries of traditional wedding photography. We chatted over their wedding plans as the bitingly cold weather drew in. The photo opportunities built as the Yorkshire backdrop soon became pretty dramatic and exciting. We love an engagement shoot location with a bunch of character! Their engagement shoot story can be found here if you would like to see more.
Wedding in South Parade Baptist Church
We love engagement shoots as it is a great way to get to know our couples and for them to be completely comfortable around us on their big day. Unlike their engagement shoot, the sun was out for their gorgeous August wedding. Bright blue glorious skies welcomed the couple. Emily's preparations were a lively affair, photographed by both Jon and Mary as Tim wasn't keen on having his groom prep documented. There is nothing more fun than getting all your best friends together to help you prepare for the day ahead. We love capturing Father of the Brides reactions to seeing their little girl for the first time in their wedding dress. Emily's Dads reaction was overwhelmingly emotional, and such a beautiful moment to capture. While Emily and the girls pampered themselves, Tim and his groomsmen welcomed guests at the South Parade Baptist Church in Headingley, Leeds.
Portrait Photos At Kirkstall Abbey
Following a lively service and a considerable amount of confetti throwing the couple took a moment for themselves with a stroll around the grounds of nearby Kirkstall Abbey. Tim and Emily were a dream; A couple who dreamt of photographs that captured the story of their day. Not too many posed formal pictures and were happy to get some cracking artistic portraits.
Wedding at Northen Monk Brewery
If you are looking for a stylish Leeds city centre wedding, then The Northern Monk refectory brewery is the venue for you. The wedding space has minimal decoration with a very modern, chic city style. The industrial look, exposed red brick and the layout of the bar and dancefloor work brilliantly for an excellent wedding evening party.
Leeds Wedding Photography
Tim and Emily's guests got to enjoy their afternoon drinks and canapes as they welcomed the couple's arrival. A brilliant set of speeches followed. As the sunset over the city cobbles, the band kicked in, and the couple shared their first dance of the night to the sound of Embrace, A Glorious Day.
Here are some of our very favourites photographs from their wedding day.
