Saltaire Wedding Victoria Hall & Salt Beer Factory

Salt Beer factory Saltaire wedding

I first met Emma and Andy in the pub to discuss their Saltaire wedding. It happened to be the pub where they were having their wedding reception, Salt Beer Factory in Saltaire. A place I happen to know do very good pizzas and beer! They had decided they wanted a non-traditional, relaxed wedding where they could be themselves.

Victoria Hall wedding ceremony

The couple had booked Victoria Hall for their wedding ceremony, most importantly choosing the room where they could see the very spot he got down on one knee and proposed on Baildon Moors.

I quickly learnt that my musician friend Sarah Widdup had played a huge role in their engagement. They had first met her whilst she was playing at their local pub and had seen her perform many times since. When the time came that Andy wanted to propose, he enlisted Sarah to wait on Baildon Moors and perform a special song for Emma whilst he got down on one knee. One of the first things they had booked for their wedding was Sarah to sing and play throughout the day.

Saltaire wedding

If you’re going to have a Saltaire wedding during Saltaire festival, the best transport is you feet!! On the wedding day I started at Victoria Hall as the guests arrived through the crowded streets of Saltaire. After the ceremony at Victoria Hall, we went outside for group shots with couple portraits on the way up to Salt Beer Factory.

The reception was filled with beer, pizza, chips, table football, a dress malfunction and shuffle board. To complete the pub theme, the couple even had their own beer pump peg. Later into the evening magician Oliver Parker entertained. Sarah had a couple of sets during the evening, with a special song sung by Andy’s daughter. Andy finished with a cup of tea!

A couple of weeks after the wedding, we caught up on Baildon Moors for a couple portrait session, which was lots of fun!
