Engine Shed Wedding Photography. Well, I don’t think I’ve ever taken so many photos on a dance floor before, and you can see why! Pam & Jimmy’s gang partied well into the night, the proper way. And it was just like that right from the start. What a fantastic wedding to capture as my season is drawing to a close.
This wedding’s a pretty special one for me as it’s the third wedding I’ve photographed in Pam & Jimmy’s Leeds friend group. Firstly there was Gee & Alex’s wedding at East Keswick Village Hall this time last year, then Dimple & Sandeep’s wedding at Wharfedale Grange in March, and now third in line, Pam & Jimmy! So with these guys and all their friends it’s like turning up to a wedding and you couldn’t feel any more like a guest yourself. It’s so cool that my job has opened me up to new friendships, I’m so grateful for that. Now bring on the Christmas Otley Run we’ve got scheduled in next month!
The day began at the Spoffoth Castle Inn where Gee and Jas got to work on Pam’s hair. And it was great surprise to see Emma Worrall MUA as both a bridesmaid and make up artist today. I last worked with Emma at Laura & Sam’s wedding at Hornington Manor.
I zipped over to see Jimmy and the boys for the wedding ceremony at St James’ Parish Church, Wetherby. Pam’s grown up signing in a choir, and so had her choir there in full turn out for the ceremony. They were magnificently talented, and a pleasure to have such a powerful force during the ceremony.
Pam & Jimmy danced down the aisle, and we we went across to a small field where we could quickly whizz through the group shots and a few portraits before it got dark. Not before P+J walked through all the confetti, and covered them in it. Then it was off to a Wetherby wedding venue The Engine Shed, which I haven’t shot at before, just down the road.
With everyone hungry, we got seated pretty quickly, and with pre-determined meat carvers for these giant boards of food there was a definite buzz and excitement in the air. I love the wedding Be the Chef, individuals can get very overexcited when handed the responsibility of handling large knives and wearing chef’s hats.
After a raucous round of speeches, the band got playing ands the dance floor filled up immediately and din’t quieten down till the band finished hours later. It was party time, and I stayed for all of it. As well as photographing all the action, I got heavily involved. I was getting thrown up in the air, chanted about, dancing around, drinking. I had the best time, all the whole capturing the action. And the photos speak for themselves, everyone just had the best time.
So if you’ve read all of that, thank you! I hope you all love the pics, and thanks again Pam and jimmy for having me, I wouldn’t have missed it for the world! x
