East Riddlesden Hall wedding

Back in July, on what felt like the hottest day known to man, I was out photographing Charlotte and Nathan’s East Riddlesden Hall wedding! This is my second trip to this beautiful National Trust venue – you can see the first here! 🙂 Charlotte and Nathan chose to have both the ceremony and reception at the same venue to make things easier for everyone. They loved East Riddlesden straight away upon viewing and couldn’t wait to tie the knot with their closest family and friends. The pair chose to get ready just round the corner at The Chevin Country Lodges, where they stayed the night. It wasn’t without drama though, as one of the bridesmaids dresses wouldn’t fasten properly due to a dodgy zip! Oops!


Rainbow themed wedding 

Charlotte and Nathan chose to have a rainbow meets Disney themed wedding to show their love for colour! Their drip cake and handmade decorations were just beautiful! Creating many of the decorations themselves meant they could stretch their budget further on the things that mattered the most to them – in this case, it was their honeymoon! I don’t blame them at all. A three week road trip around the USA does sound bloody fabulous to be fair! 

Guys! Thank you for inviting me to be part of your wonderfully colourful rainbow themed day! Here are some of my favourites!

Thank you to Anna Wood for second shooting on the day.

Charlotte said:
“Stevie photographed our wedding on 26th July, from the first meeting in a coffee shop in Huddersfield to the actual wedding day we couldn’t have asked for anyone better! The package we chose had an engagement shoot included, we have never had a photo shoot before and weren’t sure what to do, but Stevie made us feel so relaxed and comfortable from the beginning ☺️

When it came to the actual wedding day Stevie helped the day go without a hitch (apart from a bridesmaids dress not zipping up – which was captured on camera) she again made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the day and sent us sooo many lovely pictures to choose from! Stevie is a true professional and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better to capture our day! She also shares our love of cats ? and encouraged us to have our 2 cats involved in our engagement shoot ☺️”
