James got ready at the family farm, just above the rural village of Oxenhope near Haworth. All the boys were there to support him and to help trim up the wedding cars. James had restored his vintage Land Rover to its former glory and he had thoughtfully prepared the back of the Land Rover into a cozy space for his bride, complete with cushions, blankets and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot! Cathy got ready at the home she shares with James and their miniature Dachshund, Heidi, just down the lane in Oxenhope village. Cathy looked stunning and I could not resist taking loads of Bride to be portraits of her, using just the natural light from her bedroom window. Cathy and her Dad were taken to the Church, which was literally just 2 minutes away, in a horse and cart supplied by her brother. Little Heidi came too, but found the ceremony a little over-whelming; fortunately the vicar still has all his fingers! Heidi was super-calm by the time she walked her Mum & Dad up the aisle at the end of the ceremony. The newly weds made their way to the venue in the vintage Land Rover, stopping briefly at Ogden Water for some champagne and photos! Then it was onto the Moorlands Inn near Halifax for their reception. The fabulous marquee was styled using a Countryside theme, with pretty flowers, ears of wheat and rustic touches. The theme was echoed in the button holes, complete with wheat and lavender. Cathy's bouquet contained Grandma's wedding ring, a favourite brooch and a little picture of her beloved Grandad, no one was forgotten. Later in the day, a beautiful setting sun gave us the perfect opportunity for a few more pics of the Bride and Groom. Then it was time for the cutting of the Tractor cake and much dancing!! Congratulations James and Cathy and Heidi!!!
Thank you for choosing me to capture your day xXx
