Woodlands Hotel Wedding | Emma & Matthew

Ceremony & Reception: Woodlands Hotel, Gildersome, Leeds

Second-shooting with Gav Harrison

I met Matt and the lads at The Village Hotel at Tingley, which I'd been to before and remembered as being really dark - which it was. Luckily, Matt's room had a large window to work with (phew!). In fact, the strong contrast in the room made for some nicely lit shots.

As you can see, after a shy start, Matt soon settled in to having his photo taken. 

One of Matt's best men was Chris (aka Stan), on the left above, who's wedding to Hannah Gav and I photographed a few years ago. It was great to catch up and see he hasn't lost his great sense of humour.

I'm not sure if Matt kept looking at his watch because he was nervous or if it was because it was a gift from Emma. Actually, I'm sure it was the latter.

Handing out heart-shaped fans at the ceremony was a stroke of genius - it was sweltering. 

A cracking day! 
A big thank you to Emma and Matt for letting us be a part of their big day and another big thank you to the staff at Woodlands for helping to make it such great fun.
