Wedding Photos at Wentbridge House Hotel: Penny & Tarik
This wedding just oozed elegance & grace and to be fair that’s because the lovely couple who’s big day it was did too!
On the morning of 28th June Penny & her girls were getting glammed up by Carrie Turner Hairdresser & Emily Durham Make-up Artist in the Wentbridge House Hotel near Pontefract. In another room was Penny’s dress and Jimmy Choo ‘Romy Platinum’ shoes (yes, they had a room to themselves, love this!!!) Having already had a sneak peek of the stunning Maggie Sottero wedding dress, I was already thinking up amazing poses for Penny to strike as she’s such a natural model. After indulging in some detail shots (my morning favourite photos!) I captured the girls naturally then headed to find Tarik with his ushers for their groom prep shots.
The weather gods must have been smiling on these guys as it was a beautiful day and their outdoor ceremony looked so pretty. The aisle chairs had silver horseshoes on as a nod to Penny’s love of the animals. A simple mix of green foliage and white flowers were displayed so eloquently throughout the wedding ceremony setup. This also tied in with Penny’s hand tied bouquet by Rosa Rugosa Florist, Haworth. Welcoming guests to the big day was the sound of violins, provided by the Silver Strings quartet, their mix of modern songs performed in a classic style accompanied music for Penny’s grand entrance and the reception. Speaking of the wedding reception, to entertain the guests whilst group shots were taking place Chris McGeever of the Magic Circle literally wowed his audience, such a fab opportunity to get great natural & fun photos! After the big group shot brought the outdoor wedding reception to a close guests enjoyed a
four course menu, the perfect balance of emotional and funny speeches and time to freshen up.
After the wedding breakfast it’s a brilliant opportunity for relaxed evening portraits of the bride & groom and boy, did we indulge in the glorious evening summer sun! I’d previously scouted out all the best lighting locations and off for a walk we went. See the photos below for the results. The evening entertainment was provided by singer Georgie Harrison and a caricaturist.
This classic English summer wedding was an absolute delight to photograph with the sweetest of couples; thank you so much for having me Penny & Tarik!
