Naturally fun wedding photos – a happy family wedding at Bagden Hall

Wedding receptions are an ideal opportunity for you to relax, and for your wedding photographer to get those natural wedding pics without you even realising! In the photo above the bride and groom are sharing a moment to have a laugh during the speeches at a Bagden Hall wedding.

The grassy outdoor spaces at Cedar Court Hotel in Wakefield are great for the children to let off steam while the adults are having a drink or catching up with friends and family after the wedding ceremony, or wedding breakfast during the longer summer days.

There is so much going on in this natural wedding photo at Tankersley Manor: its a beautiful summer’s day with dramatic clouds scattered across a bright blue sky, the guests are having a drink and the wedding car is parked in the courtyard ready for the bride and groom to have some photos. Look carefully and you’ll notice the bride’s beautiful mother picking up the bride’s train to make sure that it doesn’t get trampled on, as all the wedding guests spill out into the courtyard to enjoy the sunshine.

Not everyone has hotel wedding reception, so even a wedding party in your back garden can be great fun if the weather is on your side. The funny thing about this wedding is that they weren’t able to pay for their wedding photos at the time, but came back to me 13 years later! Fortunately all their wedding pics were safely backed up, so they were able to finally see them after all those years!

The beautifully presented table was for an intimate Asian wedding at the Great Victoria Hotel in Bradford, so an ideal way to celebrate a smaller family weddings, particularly in the current climate where wedding guests are being limited to an ever changing safer number during the Covid-19 pandemic.

summer wedding at Oulton Hall

Oulton Hall is one of my favourite local wedding venues, as not only is it a magnificent stately home with all the interior trimmings, but it has a magnificent outdoor space, directly accessed from the wedding ceremony room. so everyone can mingle and enjoy a welcome drink in the sunshine. Its during these moments that I get a chance to snap away, and capture all the happy smiles such as in the pics below.
