It was an absolute blast photographing Amy and John’s Brass Band wedding at East Riddlesden Hall!
We started the day with bridal prep at the nearby Premier Inn with Kimberley Brook on hair and make-up before heading over to East Riddlesden Hall. Amy’s bridal party consisted of her two best friends, John’s daughter and her niece.
I caught up with John and his best man just before the ceremony. The BD1 Brass band were playing before the ceremony to entertain the guests. During the ceremony, Amy and John had two readings the second being a piece by Bob Marley
“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can.
He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze.
Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”
I really love this piece and had not heard it before.
After the ceremony, the couple’s dog Monty paid a visit for some pictures. We were really lucky to have a warm sunny day in April and had lots of time for couple portraits throughout the day.
After the formalities, the high energy New Orleans style Bare Brass Band performed and had the guests dancing. As Amy was a member of the band, she did play a little with them. The band were fantastic and o much fun.
Thank you for having me,
