I was super happy when Lee & Antony got in touch to book their wedding photography for March 2022, with me at The Manor House Lindley
It’s a super swanky venue, tucked away on a Huddersfield street. As soon as you walk in, the staff are so friendly and helpful, and when we met up for a cuppa there and I saw the surroundings I realised we’d be spoilt for choice for photograph locations.
(Incidentally, a couple of weeks before their big day, the venue was crowned The National Hotel Wedding Venue Of The Year At The Wedding Industry Awards, which is a pretty big deal, and you can see why when you see just how great the staff are!)
Anyway! Back to their big day… the sun was shining… and I was delighted to be joined by Jenny who was my second photographer for the day. Lee & Antony got ready together and then went down to greet their guests in the doorway of The Coach House (the wedding venue bit!), this was such a wonderful way to start the wedding and meant there were hugs all round. They also walked down the aisle together, perfect.
Onto the drinks, the reception had such a relaxed vibe, it was one of the best weather days of the year so far so people were really enjoying soaking up the sun and catching up with friends and family.
One thing about super sunny wedding days is, it can make the photography side of things a bit more of a challenge. The last thing you want is a load of photographs of guests squinting into the sun. Lee & Antony were brilliant at trusting me, just going with the flow and we captured some relaxed portraits of them in the gorgeous afternoon light. We definitely had a giggle too!
Their cake , made by Cheryl Bottomley Cakes had super sentimental meaning, as the design was inspired by Antony’s late Mum, and there were more than a few tears and hugs from people looking at and chatting about the cake.
What a wonderful day full of LOVE, friends, family and happiness. It was a true delight to be there.
A big huge congratulations on your marriage, and a big thanks to the new Mr & Mr Sykes-Higgins for choosing me to
capture your special day.
