While the UK was being battered by Storm Desmond, we we’re on our way to the Woodlands Hotel near Leeds in West Yorkshire for the wedding of Chelly and Craig. As we arrived, fortunately the worst of the rain was being unloaded onto Cumbria and sadly for the residents, the Lake District became a lake with many areas suffering catastrophic flooding.
Drawing into the car park we meet Chelly who had just arrived herself, Brenda went to start the day’s photography with the girls while I joined Craig, best men and ushers.
As we progressed through the day, I had envisioned a shot emphasizing the days stormy and very windy conditions, later in the evening we started our evening photo session with Chelly and Craig, I suggested we go outside, Chelly and Craig we’re happy to do this, so we had to make sure we worked very quickly to complete the photos.
15 minutes later and we we’re all done, back inside nice and warm. The next day all photos were loaded into Lightroom for post production and when I saw the windy dress shot, I was blown away (no pun intended) I just loved it. The shot below is our final result, wind, romance, beautiful dress, and featuring the love of a newly married couple starting on their adventure through life together.

Cold, wet and snowy was the weather forecast for the weekend of Ella and Andrew’s, Bagden Hall wedding. As usual the forecasters got things wrong apart from the cold bit, it was freezing !!
Ella and Andrew we’re very keen to have their wedding ceremony out doors and we’re very lucky, for the day was dry and bright, however it was very cold !! but this didn’t matter because everyone had warm hearts as we watched the happy couple make their vows.
Following the short session of family photos we all moved indoors for the reception and evening celebrations.
Bagden Hall is such a beautiful locations for wedding photography, outside the Hall is surrounded by well maintained gardens including a small lake, feature folly and golf course surrounded with open countryside.
The photos below we’re featured during our evening slideshow which is included with our Sapphire, Diamond and Platinum packages check here for prices.
Bagden Hall weddings.
Photographing a wedding at Oulton Hall is a photographer’s dream, with extensive grounds overlooking a golf course and open countryside, and inside the ornate chandeliers, sweeping staircase and upper balcony are the perfect backdrops for your beautiful wedding photography.
We’ve been fortunate enough to cover many weddings at Oulton Hall, and with this experience we know all the best locations for perfect photography, irrespective of weather conditions.
Today we we’re back there again for the wedding of Rosie and Will who emigrated all the way from Whitley Bay for the day’s proceedings. Following their earlier ceremony at St Lawrence church in Pudsey, Rosie and Will made their way to Oulton Hall in a classic vintage Bentley while all their family and guests climbed aboard two vintage city buses!! Keeping in style with their classic wedding theme.
Here are just a few of our favourite photos from the day, some of which we’re featured during our evening slideshow.
