Emma and James wedding at The Huntsman Inn, Holmfirth
Emma and James decided to get married at the fabulous Huntsman Inn a few months ago and I was lucky enough to be there to capture the wedding.
In the morning I headed over to see Emma and the girls getting ready in Topiary in Honley. It was great to meet everyone and I certainly made an impact on the mother of the bride who wasn’t a massive fan of having her picture taken.
It’s not just about the girls.
Emma the bride wanted to make sure I got pictures of the chaps getting ready. It was great to head over and see James and the lads getting ready. I could see how close they were as a family and how much the wedding meant to James. When shooting a wedding I just capture the story and try not to get involved too much.
After I had been with the chaps it was back to another house to capture Emma and the girls getting ready. I enjoyed the chaos that was happening in front of me.
The ceremony was held at St Bartholomew’s church in Meltham, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. I was read the usual rules and told where I couldn’t stand so I knew I was going to be stuck to one spot. The ceremony was lovely so a great start to the day.

The bride and groom exited the church to a procession of confetti and then got straight into their wedding car from Wainwrights and were whisked off to The Huntsman Inn. I have shot loads of weddings at The Huntsman Inn so was happy to head there as I knew Melissa and the team would do a fab job looking after everyone.
There were loads of kids at the wedding and the bride and groom had done a great job to ensure they were entertained. There were two bouncy castles and even a wedding nanny to cater for their needs. I spent the afternoon capturing the proceedings and taking group shots before the bride and groom were called in for afternoon tea.
People ate lots of sandwiches, cakes, scones and other little delights and then it was time for the speeches. The speeches were short but lovely (exactly how they should be) and everyone just continued to eat, drink, chat and enjoy themselves. The weather was typically British and seemed to be changing every few minutes but it was a lovely afternoon.
In the evening more people arrived and the sun had actually made an appearance. The hog roast arrived and people tucked in. I captured loads of kids on the bouncy castles, there was even a pinata in which the kids got involved, which made some great pictures.
The first dance occurred and then it was party time. It was a fab evening and a massive shout out to Steph who took over the dance floor and was the party girl.
It was a fantastic wedding with some really lovely people. I’m so glad that the bride and groom hired me to capture their day. Congratulations Emma and James.
