Roundhay Park Wedding Photography
2016 sees me working at some of the best venues in the country and I was delighted to return to one of my favourite venues in Yorkshire to shoot Ruth and Alex’s Roundhay Park wedding photography in February. The Mansion is situated within Roundhay Park north of Leeds city centre and it is a stunning venue. Run by the crack team at Dine, it is a brilliant venue for a wedding and even though Ruth and Alex got married in winter, we got lucky and had a beautiful sunny (if a little chilly) day so we even made it outside! I loved wedding photography at The Mansion In Roundhay Park and as always, I started the day photographing the bridal preparation in the morning before the marriage service which took place at The Mansion.
This was the first time I had photographed the wedding service at The Mansion and it really is a stunning setting for a civil service. The marriage service had moments of real emotion alongside one or two proper lough out loud moments, the perfect wedding service! After the vows were exchanged and Ruth and Alex came back down the aisle, we cut their pork pie wedding cake so it could be served up as canapes after the confetti had been thrown outside in Roundhay Park. With glorious low winter sun, Ruth and Alex headed out with me to shoot their Roundhay Park wedding photography in and around the Mansion as Ruth didn’t want to wander into the mud in her Jimmy Choo’s (and who can blame her!)
Once we returned the Yorkshire wedding reception was in full flow and before I knew it, it was time for the wedding speeches where Alex’s best men gave Alex the perfect level of stick and they had me laughing along with all the guests. After the wedding breakfast a retro Nintendo 64 appeared and plenty of wedding guests descended on the classic console to very competitively (and somewhat drunkenly) race on Mario Kart. Perhaps the most competitive person was Alex who had to be extracted from the gaming area to grab a couple of photos outside The Mansion.
With the night guests arriving Ruth and Alex kicked off their evening reception with their first dance as husband and wife. I loved shooting Ruth and Alex’s Roundhay Park wedding photography and I must say thanks to Craig from Dine who looked after me all day long and ran Ruth and Alex’s wedding flawlessly. I can highly recommend The Mansion in Roundhay Park for a wedding!
