Every once in a while, a bride sends you details of their chosen wedding venue and you can’t help but get excited. Whether it’s open countryside or beautiful architecture, one of the things that makes the job of a wedding photographer that little bit easier is a stunning venue. So it was with Georgie and Michael’s The Arches Halifax wedding photography last month.
The day began at Shibden Mill Inn where Georgie and her bridesmaids were enjoying relaxing preparations owing to the couples decision for a later than usual ceremony at 4pm. Despite the late start, the guys still managed to pack in a whole lot of fun, emotion and partying with the help of friends and family to provide musical accompaniment, including a specially written and performed song by Dunc, Georgie’s dad.
Georgie is an events manager at the University of Bradford and admitted that, at times, pulling together her big day didn’t feel too different to a day in the office. Nevertheless, she had the guys from Mode For events on hand to take the reigns and ensure that she could concentrate on her day as the bride.
During our initial conversations, Georgie warned me that Michael was not looking forward to having the camera or the attention of all those friends and family trained on him for the day. I reassured her that I like to melt in to the background as much as possible, which is more than can be said for Michael, who rose to the occasion with aplomb, including a killer speech.
