East Riddlesden Hall Wedding Photography
I am massively thankful to Jo and Rob for inviting me to be part of their East Riddlesden Hall wedding. Their day was so amazing and so much fun. I wish we could do it all again!
East Riddlesden Hall is part of the National Trust, nestled away in Keighley, Yorkshire. Wedding ceremonies take place in the barn, under the twinkling fairy lights and the beautiful oak beams. The venue is set in a gorgeous area surrounded by intimate gardens and a large pond – home to many ducks!
I started the day with Jo and her bridesmaids at The Crescent Inn in Ilkley. It was so obvious the girls were so excited for the day ahead! Once their hair and makeup had been finished off it was time to get into the dresses! Jo’s Limelight Occasions lightweight, lace dress was just beautiful! Jo and her Dad shared a moment before it was time to leave for the ceremony.

Their ceremony was by far the most emotional I’ve ever seen. Rob was in floods of tears as he turned to see his beautiful Bride walk down the aisle with her dad, who was also in floods of tears! It didn’t take them long to set everybody else off, me included! The ceremony was beautifully dressed with wild flowers and candles, tucked away in wooden crates. Once the “I do’s” had been said, it was time for some confetti and drinks. It wouldn’t be a proper Yorkshire wedding without some rain, so of course, everyone ran back inside shortly after!
Beautiful couple portraits
Once the rain had calmed down we managed to sneak outside again for some couple shots, and to give the two of them some time alone. The photo’s look beautiful alongside Typical Type’s festoon lights and amongst the pretty flowers in the gardens. Typical Type had also decorated the top table with their stunning edison lights, which gave the room the extra “wow”, not that this beautiful venue needs it!
Jo’s brother sang the couple into their first dance and got the rest of the guests dancing afterwards. I was very excited to hear that Jo and her girls had prepared a dance for Rob. Everybody gathered round as they twerked and shimmied their way around the dance floor to Justin Bieber’s Sorry! What a fantastic idea and job they did!
Once again, a massive thank you to Jo and Rob for inviting me to be part of their wonderful East Riddlesden Hall wedding. I can’t wait to be back at this beautiful venue in Keighley!
