Black Horse Inn Wedding Photography
Gemma and Gaz got married at The Black Horse Inn in Clifton, between Mirfield and Brighouse, and as they were having a Yorkshire wedding they went for a Yorkshire wedding photographer (well, one who originally hails from Yorkshire). I always look forward to weddings back in the ‘homeland’. For some reason it always seems sunnier when I go back over, although Gemma and Gaz’s day didn’t start off that well, it was a little overcast and wet :0(In Yorkshire’s defence, it was November!
The Black Horse Inn is a historic pub, with some parts of the building dating back to the 17th century. It’s a challenging venue with a low roof and small windows, so it’s right up my street. I love low light venues as they push my Nikon’s to the limit. High ISO’s combined with a couple of prime lenses and a steady hand are required and this was a new challenge for my new Nikon D800. Fear not, it coped with the lighting with no problem! The venue is well known for it’s high quality food and having eaten there myself in the past, I can definitely say the guests were in for a treat come the wedding breakfast.
Gemma got ready at The Black Horse Inn before we moved through to the ceremony room for the service. With one eye on the weather, we managed to grab half an hour of sunshine in the afternoon for the groups and couple shots before the wedding breakfast. The first dance was laser-tastic but the D800 excelled in the changing light and grabbed some cracking first dance shots.
Here’s Gemma and Gaz’s day….
