Sarah & Bill's wedding was back in May at Victoria Hall in the Saltaire Word Heritage Village in Bradford, West Yorkshire. It was an honour to be their wedding photographer; their day was really unique, full of vintage touches and quirky details. Sarah did the flowers and decor herself, the tables were names after streets in the village, the food was catered by the local Kashmiri restaurant and the bar was provided by Don't Tell Titus, a village bar and restaurant.
I met them both at their house in the village, where they got ready together (both looking fab and ditching tradition with Sarah teaming her beautiful dress with purple pumps and Bill opting for a funky, colourful shirt with his suit!) and we took a few images outside, before walking up to the venue together, stopping outside Salt's Mill for a few photos on the way. Their guests were greeted by the sounds of a string quartet and Sarah was escorted into the ceremony by her two sisters. Their ceremony was relaxed and fun, with three readings by friends and lots of love and laughter.
A drinks reception followed, allowing guests time to congratulate the happy couple, after which we took some group shots. The weather was against us at this point, so we utilised the beautiful staircase indoors to save everyone getting wet! Guests then moved into the reception room to enjoy a three course Kashmiri meal, which I was lucky enough to partake in (minus the wine of course!). I was on the rowdy table named after Fanny Street... no comment!
Following the meal, there were some great speeches, then we went outside to do some portraits before the evening do commenced.
In the evening, they had a fab live jazz band and everyone enjoyed a dance, before Sarah joined the band for a few songs on the clarinet, which went down an absolute storm. At this point, I left them to party the night away!
What a beautiful day! I wish Sarah and Bill a long and happy marriage and thank them for allow me to share their day with them.
