Laura And Matt | Wakefield Wedding Photography | Wentbridge Hotel Wedding Photography


On a sunny day late in October I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing Laura and Matt's wedding at Wentbridge House Hotel in Wakefield.


The day started bright and early and as I arrived Wentbridge House Hotel was basked in glorious sunshine.


I made my way to the bridal suite and found Laura and her bridesmaid in a jovial mood drinking bucksfizz and having their hair and makeup done. The morning of the wedding is one of my favourite parts of the day,  everyone is relaxed, full of giggles and excited for the day ahead.


As with all weddings the morning flies by and before we knew it Laura was dressed and looking stunning in her bridal gown.  She was escorted by her bridesmaids to see her dad for the first time.  As a father myself I always find this moment very special.  I found myself reaching for the tissues when Laura saw her dad David for the first time.  I can only image how I will feel when the day finally arrives that I have to give my little girl away!


After the formallities of the "I do's" everyone took full advantage of the great weather and went out onto the front lawn to enjoy their drinks and canopies.  During this time and with the help of some amazing ushers we completed all the group shots and I captured some candid moments of everyone enjoying themselves.


Laura,  Matt and myself then sneaked off to capture some shots of just the two of them.  Laura and Matt are so natural in front of the camera and with couples like this it makes my job as a wedding photographer so much easier!


The speeches were both heartfelt and funny.  Hats off to Rob the best man for delivering some very funny stories about Matt!  I found it hard to take photos as I was chuckling along to his speech!


While everyone enjoyed their wedding breakfast meal I edited some images for the evening slideshow.  No rest for the wicked but I love seeing everyone's reactions to some of the images that I have taken during the day.


The day seemed to go so quickly and it wasn't long before the first dance was over and done with and it was really time to hit the dance floor for a boogie!


Laura and Matt are such a wonderful couple and I truly wish them all the very best for the futre.  I loved every minute of the wedding and hope they had a magical day they can remember forever.
