Lucy and David

Or, how the farmer got his wife.

Ok, I need to get this out the way before I get any further. The bride’s prep was in… Upperthong. I know, I know. My maturity level is showing. Still, gotta laugh.

The wedding itself was in Holmfirth at 11am so I was with the bride from 9am. I managed to find somewhere nearby to park then walked to the house she was getting ready in. It was a beautiful big house with bags of character and large windows for plenty of light. That made my life a lot easier so I said hi to everyone, including the filmography crew, then got to work. They even provided bacon butties!

The Ceremony

The ceremony took place at St David’s church.  The vicar was awesome and very accommodating with plenty of room for the videographers, me and the second shooter, Richard to work without getting in each other’s way.

After the ceremony, we headed to a local reservoir for some couple shots, but due to the very dry weather it was too empty and looked wrong in the shots, so we headed to their reception, which was a lovely marquee in a field. Very fitting, with David being a farmer.


The view from there was stunning and the weather nice, so we got the group shots done then headed in for speeches and the meal. There was a particularly beautiful moment when Lucy was presented with a picture of her father and his darts team which had been on the wall at a local pub. He had passed away several years previously, so it was good that he could be with her in spirit and I’m sure he would be proud of her. 

The pictures Richard and I captured work together well and will help Lucy and David look back on their wedding and remember all that happened that day. From the singing waiters to the slightly late bride. 

Here is a selection of my favourite shots from the day:
