Oulton Hall Wedding: Emma & Gary

Ceremony & Reception: Oulton Hall, Oulton, Leeds
A really laid-back wedding at a beautiful venue.
The weather decided to play games with us but we weren't going to let a bit of rain stop us using the lovely gardens at Oulton Hall as a backdrop.
A slightly unconventional wedding in some respects - no Best-Man's speech and no first dance but a great time was definitely had by all.
Evening entertainment was provided by crooner, Jamie Forth who was fantastic. If you closed your eyes, you'd swear Matt Munroe was in the room with you and his music perfectly summed up the whole relaxed atmosphere of the day.
Congratulations to Emma & Gary and thanks to everyone at Oulton Hall for a cracking day!

Clayton Cricket Club: Demolition Day

The big day finally arrived for Clayton Cricket Club when the old clubhouse was to be demolished to make way for a brand spanking new one. It's amazing, you ask for volunteers to do the teas on a Saturday afternoon and everyone's got a cast iron excuse but ask for volunteers to demolish the clubhouse and everyone's there at 7:30am on a drizzly October Saturday morning with a lump hammer in their hand, raring to get on with it!
I was asked to record the historic event (and the subsequent building work) for posterity and I have to say, it was a right laugh! Health and safety wasn't exactly top of the agenda but everyone got stuck in and the job was finished by 11:00am.
I've included a collection of images below but the full set can be seen on the club website:
