Gemma & Chris’s Autumnal Woodlands Wedding Adventure
Woodlands Leeds Wedding Photos | Gemma & Chris | Hamish Irvine Photographer
What a lovely wedding! The Woodlands Hotel is a charming Leeds wedding venue, and Gemma and Chris were so lucky to have such a wonderful day for their wedding. With the ceremony at St Johns Church in Clayton, it was so nice to have the two different venues to celebrate in.
Whilst team Bride had an emotional morning as Gemma revealed herself in her beautiful dress to her bridesmaids and Dad and tears flowed, Chris got a wild surprise when a huge hummer limousine pulled up onto the street to take him to the church. I dashed between the two to capture the action, then before we knew it it was ceremony time!
The wedding at St Johns Church, Clayton was lovely, and Gemma & Chris danced down the aisle in style outside. Confetti thrown, we then hopped in the vintage wedding car and drove to Thornton viaduct for a few portraits before heading across to the Woodlands.
The sun then came out as we arrived, and the drinks began to flow. I was weaving in and out of the rooms capturing the mingling, laughs and good times. Then the light turned golden outside, and was perfect time to capture a few group shots and portraits. I really enjoyed the bridal party shots, they’re definitely some of my favourites from the day with everyone laughing away.
Speech time! The rooms looked stunning, and wowed all the guests as they took their seats. It was an emotional one again for everyone, before our Best Man donned a judges wig and played courtroom with the wedding. Chris was found guilty of many of his pretty funny flaws, and had everyone laughing away.
Gemma and Chris had bought a few sparklers in advance of the wedding, knowing how much I loved a good sparkler shot! So we got a few excited guests outside and lit them all together. Made for one lovely photograph and a great time. Then with the big room turned around for the evening, the party was ready to start. After a lovely looking first dance, the party began and the night took off.
Thanks so much for having me for your Woodlands Wedding Photography, Gemma and Chris. I hope you love all the pics!
