Cookridge Hall Wedding Photography

I remember meeting Jac and Rob last year to chat about their Cookridge Hall wedding plans. They mentioned wanting a relaxed, outdoor wedding, but they never mentioned anything about it being this epic! Cookridge Hall is situated on the outskirts of Leeds near Horsforth. It’s primarily used for its sports centre and golf, but they also hold weddings in the conservatory throughout the summer months. The conservatory lets in loads of light and looks out onto the massive lawn and gardens – which is perfect for an outdoor ceremony! 

Of course, no wedding is without drama. Jac had somehow managed to get herself ill and spent most of the day wrapped up in blankets on the grass! Not what any Bride wants on her wedding day! 🙁


Outdoor Festival Wedding in Leeds

Jac and Rob’s ceremony was conducted by Helen at The Elegant Celebrant. Helen made sure their ceremony was super personal and included parts about their engagement and life together. After the ceremony, everyone headed towards the patio area for tea and scones (and alcohol!) whilst catching up with old friends and of course making new ones! No outdoor festival style wedding is complete without lots of lawn games. These kept the guests (and me!) entertained all afternoon. It was perfect weather for it too!

I finished the day by photographing their outdoor speeches. This is the first wedding I’ve been a part of where the speeches have been outdoors and I’ve gotta say, I can’t wait for more! Outdoor speeches are definitely a winner!

Thank you Jac and Rob for inviting me to be a part of your Cookridge Hall wedding in June. I had a blast at your laid-back, outdoor wedding! 🙂
