Thorner Leeds Wedding Photographer
David and Louise’s Thorner, Leeds wedding was full of the sights, sounds and scents of the English countryside. The couples Yorkshire wedding took place in mid-August. Louise and David wanted their marriage to be a relaxed day!
Wedding at St Peters, Thorner
Set in the beautiful West Yorkshire village of Thorner, Louise and David’s wedding was a whirlwind! To get the most from the day’s photography, we are a team of two photographers, ensuring every detail was captured! The ceremony was in St Peters church, a location that overlooked their reception venue at the Victory Hall down the road. In spite of the ominous cloud, the day gave way to a glorious warm sun for the newlywed's arrival.
Wedding Reception at Victory Hall
There are so many elements to a wedding day that can make it special for everyone that’s involved. Two people very much in love are getting married, families are coming together, and new friends are made. Louise and David’s day was no different. We got some gorgeous shots of their beautiful wedding. The style of the day was the countryside vintage. There was a particular focus on artisan food and drink - choosing fantastic local suppliers for their buffet and also cocktail making hour.
When we arrived at the Victory Hall, there was a lot of beautiful detail to photograph there. David had spent days hand decorating the space and making it attractive. David had decked out the venue to make it their own, covering the area in sweeping bunting with a beautiful checklist game on each table. No details were forgotten, including a very tempting sweetie table, gorgeous milk-churn floral arrangements and a DIY photobooth for their guests. We remember wondering how we would ever get everything photographed in time! Thankfully we did, it is the details that make up their unique day.
Natural wedding portraits
At the party, the atmosphere was genuinely buzzing. Louise and David had asked for very few formal photos, so it was great for Stories Of I Do to have the freedom to roam. We were able to capture so many natural images of their wedding day without the pressure of endless group photos. Guests were wearing shades and chilling in the afternoon sunshine – the day couldn’t have been more perfect for them. Once the newlyweds had seen everyone and had time to relax, we went for a wander in the local countryside grounds and found the most beautiful sunlight for some more pictures. These two were so incredible and natural in front of the camera.
