Susannah & Sam

Wedding Photography at Victoria Hall

Victoria Hall in Saltaire, Yorkshire, has a fond place in my heart. I’ve made many visits to the Hockney and local art galleries  in my years studying my photography degree and since, so when Susannah and Sam asked me to be their wedding photographer, I just couldn’t wait. They wanted that documentary style of wedding photography but were also keen to explore the photo possibilities around such a culturally rich venue and town.

 

Humanist Ceremony in the Glen Room

I met Sam in The Great Hall where the decor was finally decided and tables tweaked. Victoria Hall is a listed building and styled perfectly for a wedding – The Glen Room perfect for the humanist wedding ceremony. Susannah arrived in the VW camper with a very chirpy, happy Dad. After a walk up the grand staircase with the father of the bride, Susannah walked down with Sam and out into the streets of Saltaire to the cheers and confetti.

 

Wedding Portraits in Saltaire

Saltaire is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is surrounded by beautiful cobble streets. So a relaxed wander through the town, down to the United Reformed Church grounds, we grabbed a few natural portraits to show off the streets and give Susannah and Sam a little time out. A local man passed Susannah a rose from his allotment before we headed back up for wedding breakfast and speeches. That wasn’t before an impromptu visit to the wedding party by a huge dog and a few shenanigans with Susannah, some bridesmaids and her veil…

 

First Dance in The Main Hall

There was such a natural feel to the whole day. We did explore a few creative portraits in The Glen Room – going to “The Moon and Back” a little – before the sun finally went down. The band played on stage as Susannah and Sam had their first dance under the bunting and the bright lights of the Main Hall.
