I’ve been looking forward to posting Alana & Jeremy’s fantastic Bramham Wedding since I finished working on the photographs. It’s taken a while as I’ve just been so busy recently. It was definitely worth waiting for though.
A bit earlier this year, towards the back end of summer when it was still warm and the nights were light until 9pm, I did the pre-wedding shoot with Alana & Jeremy and the girls. We went for a lovely walk in the woods and found a tyre swing over the river – it was a great afternoon and you can click here to see the Family Portrait.
So we come to the wedding day. All of the wedding was taking place in Bramham, a lovely little village that’s about halfway between Leeds and York. I really enjoyed the family atmosphere of the day. Everything was centred around the family home, with Alana getting ready in the morning with both the girls, her mum, sister and friends.
It was only a short walk up the hill to All Saints Church in Bramham for the service. All Saints was everything that a small village church should be (and more, for the photographers, it had gorgeous, massive windows) and sat on top of the hill overlooking the village. It also has to be said that the girls did an amazing reading together, leaving not a dry eye in the house (I had a bit of dust in my eye!!!!). A beautiful, personal, wedding service.
I met the wedding party after a rather relaxing stroll back to the house (It’s much easier carrying a full camera bag downhill!) and the afternoon kicked off in style with the Groom carrying the Bride over the threshold and into the reception. The afternoon and evening that followed was a combination of spending relaxed time chatting to family & friends and packed dancefloor featuring an exceptional Mick Jagger impersonator, robot dancing, twirling bridesmaids and some impromptu Karaoke from the bride.
All in all, a brilliant, warm, happy day.
