Wedding Photography in Yorkshire

Kara & Jonny’s ERH Wedding

Wedding Photography at East Riddlesden Hall.

Some of our absolute favourite wedding photography in Yorkshire happens when we visit venues that we know and love. As one of the finest barn-wedding venues in Yorkshire, we have always loved wedding photography at East Riddlesden Hall and eagerly look forward to our next photography adventure at this amazing venue. East Riddlesden Hall is the perfect complement to our unique blend of happy and relaxed wedding photography and with the addition of a super fun couple like Jonny & Kara we just knew it was going to be an absolute corker of a wedding.

Jonny and Kara are just about the loveliest couple we have ever photographed. From the moment we met them at an East Riddlesden Hall wedding fair, we got on like a house on fire. A fantastically fun engagement shoot later just cemented this friendship and by the time their wedding was on the horizon, we were absolutely hopping to get stuck in and capture them some awesome, authentic Yorkshire wedding photography.

Some couples just seem to complement each other so well – Jonny is calm and grounded and such a lovely guy, while Kara is super lively and always on the move. These differences (that make them such an awesome pairing) were certainly never more apparent than on the morning of their wedding. While Jaye met up with Kara (+ at least fifteen other people) for a super lively and fun-packed prep at her parent’s home, I (Matt) joined Jonny who was having a super chilled out morning at home with a few friends. Pretty soon Jonny was ready to leave and while we were making our way over to East Riddlesden Hall, not too far away Jaye was capturing Kara’s big reveal to her family – I just love the over the shoulder angle and the reaction on her fathers face in this photograph.

An awesome vintage bus carried Kara to East Riddlesden Hall in style and pretty soon she was walking down the aisle to meet an excited Jonny. An emotional ceremony later and they were finally married – then it was straight back outside and into a hail of confetti and hugs. Some of my favourite wedding photography at East Riddlesden Hall happens during the post-ceremony mingle – everyone is just so happy! People had travelled from far and wide to congratulate Kara and Jonny on their special day and watching them go out of their way to make sure they didn’t miss saying hi to anyone, I can well see why they’re so loved!

While guests entertained themselves with garden games, canopies and a string quartet, we whisked Kara and Jonny away for some couples portraits. Wedding photography in Yorkshire on a sunny afternoon sure is a fantastic way to spend your time and Kara and Jonny were full of smiles and giggles. The vintage bus and beautiful barn doors provided the perfect backdrop for some super fun wedding photography and there was even time for a surprise visit from their dog! After a lot of laughter, it was finally time to re-join their guests and head into the barn for the afternoon’s entertainment.

The sun was setting as we headed Jonny and Kara down the hill and into the beautiful golden light for some awesome East Riddlesden Hall wedding photography. On our way back, Jonny decided to give his bride a piggyback up the hill – not to be outdone, Kara soon took over and finished the journey with Jonny firmly on her back. Like I said – the perfect pairing!
