Fleece Inn Barkisland Wedding Photography
I’d be looking forward to my first time shooting a wedding at The Fleece Inn in Barkisland for a few reasons. It’s a place Mrs T and I visit regularly as the food is terrific,it has amazing views over Calderdale and it’s run by Mrs T’s cousin Katie and her husband Mark, who also happens to be the head chef! As if that wasn’t enough, the groom Dean and I go way back, all the way to primary school as we’ve known each other since we were about 5 years old. So you can imagine how pleased I was that Ashlea and Dean asked me to cover their Fleece Inn Barkisland wedding photography at the end of August!
St Philip The Apostle
The service was held in Huddersfield at St Philip The Apostle where the vicar, Mary Railton-Crowder was very relaxed and allowed me to shoot the service as it happened. With plenty of emotion it was a beautiful, personal service and after a handful of formals in the church grounds the guests were loaded up onto a vintage double decker bus to make the journey to Calderdale and to The Fleece Inn. Once at The Fleece Inn, Ashlea and Dean joined me for some couple photos before relaxing with their guests. My thanks to Ashlea and Dean for including me in their wedding breakfast as I got to catch up with some old school friends and enjoy the fantastic food (thanks to chef Mark!).
Sunset over Calderdale
After some brilliant speeches, including a a lovely, heartfelt yet hilarious one from Ashlea’s twin sister, the sun had come out over Calderdale and as it set over the valley, Ashlea and Dean made the most of the amazing night and had their first dance outside with the sun setting behind them. It was a beautiful end to a wonderful wedding and I loved my first time shooting as a Fleece Inn Barkisland wedding photography.
