Woodman Inn Wedding Photography // Abbey and James

Wedding at The Woodman Inn

Back in October I made my way over to Yorkshire for Abbey and James’ Woodman Inn wedding photography at the wonderfully named Thunder Bridge near Huddersfield. The Woodman Inn is a traditional pub in a small village that is a fantastic venue for a wedding. I love shooting in pubs and it was my first wedding at the Woodman Inn (check out Katy and Jon’s wedding at The White Hart Inn in Lydgate if you’d like to see a different wedding in a pub). The Woodman Inn is a cosy, intimate pub which always creates a great atmosphere for a wedding.

Abbey got ready in the cottages next to the pub and I spent the morning with her and her bridesmaids. Whilst they drank champagne we grabbed a few photos of the ladies having fun. Once Abbey’s dad saw her in her wedding dress for the first time I went into The Woodman Inn where James was waiting at the top of the aisle. Abbey was led up the aisle by her proud father and Abbey and James had a wonderful marriage service with plenty of laughter (Abbey and James do not take themselves seriously at all!)

Relaxed, fun wedding photos

With a warm autumn day outside the guests spilled out of the Woodman Inn into to enjoy the end of summer whilst Abbey and James joined me for some relaxed, fun wedding photos on Thunder Bridge.  Shooting Abbey and James’s Woodman Inn wedding photography was great fun, with the guests well up for a party and a very relaxed couple making my day an absolute pleasure. The speeches were great fun with a great crowd laughing along to the many stories and jokes (mainly at James’ expense!)

The evening reception kicked off a very late night of partying. I loved shooting Abbey and James’ Woodman Inn wedding photography and I hope to be back there soon. So here’s their day, photos by me, music by Take That (which was Abbey and James’s first dance song)…
