Otley Parish Church, Hollins Hall Hotel, Baildon | Emma and Seb’s wedding

For my second August Bank Holiday wedding, I headed over to Otley Parish Church in the glorious sunshine for Emma and Seb’s wedding.

Emma had chosen not to have any bridal preparation photographs taken, so my first point of call was at the church to meet Seb and their guests arriving. I don’t get to see as much of this part of the day normally, so it was fab to see everyone arriving, greeting Seb and the groomsmen in excited anticipation of the day ahead.

Soon everyone made their way into church because Emma was arriving with her father.

While I took most of the photographs from near the front during the ceremony, I was also able to get some shots from the balcony at the back too. Capturing the interior of the church which dates back over 1,000 years.

After the ceremony and the happy couple had been showered in confetti on their way to the wedding car, it was time to head over the gorgeous Hollins Hall Hotel Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Baildon, Shipley for the reception.

We took a few group photographs on the lawn before heading inside for the speeches and wedding breakfast. Emma and Seb were greeted to a huge welcome of cheering and applause from their guests. The speeches were full of emotion and laughter, I think this is shown in the photographs! I left everyone for a little while to enjoy the wedding breakfast, before rejoining the wedding party later in the evening.

The wedding breakfast came to a close just at the right time so we were able to sneak out and get a few more photos while the light was beautiful. Hollins Hall Hotel is set in 200 acres of landscaped grounds overlooking the Aire Valley, so we definitely wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous countryside backdrop.

Soon more guests were arriving in time for the night do. The first dance followed shortly after the cake was cut. I left the party after capturing some dance floor moves to let everyone enjoy the rest of the day.
