This was our first time photographing a wedding at beautiful Holdsworth House in the hills above Halifax, West Yorkshire, a grand Jacobean manor built in 1633, famous for its appearance in the BBC drama “Tango in Halifax” and what better wedding to photograph than that of the splendid Zoe & Ben.
These two lovely people were an absolute joy to work with and we felt very welcomed by their friends and family. Zoe & Ben were also joined for their very special day by their dog Jules who, with her sparkly wedding collar, had almost as much attention as the beautiful bride!
Both Zoe and Ben spent the morning getting ready in different parts of the hotel before a lovely civil ceremony full of laughs and tears. We then headed outside into Holdsworth’s lovely ornate gardens for some confetti throwing followed by some bride & groom couple shots. After the drinks reception in the cosy lounges with open fires, fine antiques and tapestries, it was on with the wedding breakfast and then some lovely heart-warming and very funny speeches.
The gardens look beautiful by day – and stunning by night – with twinkling lights in the trees. So we had to take the opportunity to nip back out after dinner for a couple of night photos before the evening party got well and truly underway.
