L ast week was a busy week. The busiest week of the year for weddings with 3, this being the final one.
I shoot more marquee weddings than any other type of wedding or venue so Sophie & Ollie’s West Yorkshire marquee wedding was another typical day in the office for me…and it’s a great office to work in!
Sophie & Ollie’s wedding came about as a result of a wedding I photographed last year for another couple, Louise & Christian with Christian’s parents being Ollie’s god-parents.
I don’t know if that makes Ollie & Christian god-brothers, or something…
So it was another gloriously sunny day in a field on top of a grassy hill in West Yorkshire, unlike our pre-wedding photo-shoot where it did nothing but rain!
The setting was a sweeping expanse of West Yorkshire countryside with the marquee area decorated (and later lit) by dozens of glass lanterns, bales of straw and a err… fibreglass sheep!Later seen sporting an army officers hat…
The marquee itself inside had an alpine theme as the families are all big skiers and Sophie’s parents even have an alpine themed Summer house in their garden.
Sophie wore Pronovias sourced from the Bond Street shop in London and the groom Ollie, traditional morning suit and the 6 adult bridesmaids were dressed in grey.
Flowers were by Tracy at The Butterfly Net and the car, a cream MGB by Sophie’s dad, John and catering by ‘The 3 Acres‘.
The ceremony at St John The Evangelist in Upper Denby was conducted by the very accommodating Rev. Jeff and during the ceremony, Sophie’s sister Frankie sang ‘Grow Old With Me’ by Tom O’Dell.
The evening entertainment was provided by wedding band The Juke Boxers and the couple honeymooned in Tanzania and Zanzibar.
All in all, it was one of those days that just went like clockwork from start to finish and these few images below are just the highlights with a full gallery (with print ordering) facility available by clicking the link.
