Jayne and Steven Sandburn Hall


Yesterday the Dave Spink Photography team headed over to one of yorks finest wedding venues, Sandburn Hall for Jayne and Steven’s crazy yet wonderful wedding celebrations.
Despite the father of the bride loosing a golf buggy, the registras being an hour late and only 5 weeks to organise their wedding you could safely say that Jayne and Steven were one of  the happiest couples that they had photographed in a long time. It soon became clear that all that matters on your wedding day is the two of you. So to be sure that you have them memories captured for life enquire now about all our packages. Dave and Megan Started the day at the close by at Grifton Lodges where Jayne was preparing for her special day.
Although the day started out calm, it soon picked up its pace as the clock was ticking. So with some quick makeup shots, photos of the flowers and her dress it soon became time to meet Steven and his ushers back at Sandburn for some quick pre wedding photographs.

Before the ceremony was to being, Dave and Megan took that opportunity to capture the outstanding attention to detail and effort that the two of them had put into their decorations throughout the entire room in such a short space of time.
The Ceremony took place in a converted barn with wooden beams framing the room beautifully, with a stunning window wall at the front looking out to the stunning scenery that Sandburn had to offer. Perfect as the weather was beautiful. Once the ceremony had finished The award winning photographers had the opportunity to take advantage of the sun during group photos.

Not only does Sandburn offer stunning views, you even get use of their quirky garden area. Although this section isn’t the largest garden the team have seen , it was perfect for them smaller group shots.
With plenty of time left, the team headed upstairs to see how the wedding breakfast room was looking, and what a transformation it was.
The tables were equip with everything from hand crafted hearts, old photos , beautiful name tags and stunning centre pieces. The seating plan was presented in an old style suitcase with travel labels for the table numbers.

It was now time for speeches. The father of the bride didn’t have a piece of paper, or a rehersed  speech, he just spoke from the heart and told many wonderful memories about his daughter growing up.
They say the grooms speech is meant to be the easiest, just thank people, hand out gifts and try not to cry. Steven put his own energetic touch mentioning many things that had gone on in the process of preparing for the day, including Ninja Nat (their own personal wedding planner who was also a bridesmaid) Jayne and everyone on the room were touched by his kind words.
Last but not least, the best man. Introduced with the Eye of the Tiger you could see that he wasn’t shy. He kept everyone laughing and it was a great speech to end the wedding breakfast.
While the last stages of the day were being put together Megan headed outside to get some smaller family shots and to take advantage of the stunning sunset.
All that was left was an Evening reception, where they had organised a band, DJ and even some funky props that people would take photos with. They ended the night with a Zorba dance which certainly got everyone up and dancing.

All in all it was a fantastic day with fantastic people. It was a pleasure photographing their special day and we are sure that they will love the photos that Dave and Megan have got.

This weekend Dave and Megan , award winning leeds photographers attended Rochelle and Lee’s special day at Howley Hall. The team started the day at St Marys church in Morley.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t looking too good at this point so with that in mind the team needed to work fast and efficiantly to ensure the grooms men all and their photos taken and kept dry before the bride was to make her grand entrance.

A short break in the rain meant Dave and Megan could quickly get some group photos outside the church. With just an hour to spare from the time Rochelle and Lee came out of the church to the time they had to be ready for their wedding breakfast the Dave Spink Photography team headed off to the venue to prepare for the next stages of the day.
As the happy couple arrived, Dave stopped with the vintage style bus to get some more romantic shots of just the two of them whilst Megan photographed all the details of the wedding breakfast rooms.
Luckily a second brief break in the weather meant Rochelle and Lee were able to get a few extra snaps to add to their stunning collation of photos.

Along with photography Rochelle and Lee hired our new ultimate Photo Booth, currently on offer for just £375!
A Photo Booth is a great way to end the night and makes a perfect wedding favour for all your guests as our unique booth can print double prints meaning you also receive a guest book of pictures and messages from the night

Laila & David – Waterton Park 10th May 2014

This week our video team had the privilege of visiting one of our favourite wedding settings, Waterton Park for the marriage of Laila and David.
The day began filming the bride to be, Liala,  getting ready in the hotel which looks out over the beautiful view of Walton Hall surrounded by a lake in which the evening reception would take place later on.
As one of the team stayed with Liala and her bridesmaids, our other videographer went to meet with a slightly nervous looking groom over at Walton Hall.
As the morning went on the beautiful weather provided a great opportunity to get some establishing shots of the venue and grounds while guests began to arrive.
The ceremony took place inside the hotel, where love for the bride and groom became increasingly obvious with tears of joy from family and friends throughout. Our videographers were also able to capture these moments during the 2 readings prepared by guests.
After the ceremony the team began to film the guests making their way over the bridge towards Walton Hall where group photos were taken.
A little later the beautiful setting of the lake made a great backdrop for shots of the bride and now much more relaxed groom on their own. Meanwhile,  the large grounds made it possible to capture lots of natural shots of the guests chatting as they watched the couple.
Unfortunately the good weather came to and end as rain began to pour,  sending the guests inside for the wedding breakfast and speeches.
After which a brave bride and groom ventured outside again, this time with 2 white umbrellas to finish having their photos taken in a sheltered stone archway overlooking the lake.
The light shining through the dark rainclouds made for some really interesting and unique shots which the team really enjoyed capturing as Laila and David posed under the archway.
The package Laila and David chose included Video Messages, which allows the bride and groom to look back at messages from guests on their day. Whilst one of the video team started to film details of the evening reception, the other started to collect messages from family and friends as they arrived.
The team then regrouped to film the final part of the day – the first dance. However this time it included a slightly less common celebration directly afterwards in which the bride and groom were joined by family members in a very happy and energetic traditional dance.
Overall the day was filled with lots of unique and personal touches which combined with the lovely setting made the day a pleasure to be part of.

Leanne and Steven Marryoke and Video at The Woodlands Hotel

This weekend at the woodlands hotel the Dave Spink Photography team did a wedding video and Marryoke for the funny, outgoings and energetic Leanne and Steven.
These award wining videographers started the day at Leanne’s mums house, videoing her preparations as she got ready for the big day! But feeling a little nervous she has mentioned before she only wanted a little bit of videoing don’t at this stage of the day so they then made their way down to the church to prepare for the her grand entrance. From day one of booking they thought the idea of a Marryoke was a wonderful idea and a perfect addition to their special day so couldn’t wait to get planning with some ideas on the day.
The team were delighted to hear that their song choice was ‘Pharrell Williams – Happy’ which is a much loved song in the office and they couldn’t wait to started.
Prior to the day Dave and Megan spent a lot of time gathering ideas for each line making it easier to organise on the day and making sure that doing the Marryoke wouldn’t disrupt the actual flow of the day.  Considering the weather conditions just the day before, we were all surprised to see that the sun made an appearance but this was great as it meant while it was light out, they  could get footage outside in the stunning grounds of The Woodlands Hotel in Gildersome. The team were pleased to hear that all the guests were told prior to the wedding that they were having a Marryoke and explained what one was so all guests got right into it and enjoyed joining in on the fun.
One of the guests actually brought  minion teddy, so that made a little appearance as well in reference to the ‘Despicable Me’ Movie.
As the night went on and the sun set all that was left was to get a few clips on the dance floor. The DJ made an announcement saying that he was going to play the ‘Happy’ song and immediately people got on the dance floor and started singing along which looked great on the end result.

Jo and Gareth 1st May The Mansion, Roundhay


On the 1st of May Jo and Gareth had their special day at one of Leeds finest venues, The mansion in Roundhay park. The weather was looking glorious all morning, so photos in the sun were looking very promising which is always nice to see! Dave and Megan met the happy couple at Roundhay ready for their ceremony to begin. The nice thing about Roundhay is that the ceremony room is very light, lined with windows and natural lighting so getting photos in there is effortless!
With he sun shining bright and beautifully, it was impossible for people not to smile and be happy on the day as this happy couple tie the knot in front of their friends and families.

Once the ceremony was over, the team had the change to wonder around outside whilst the bride and groom was greeted by their wedding guests before getting the more formal shots.
Although on most occasion Dave and Megan will get family photos outside but they has to take advantage of the mansions famous stair case.
After the group shots were done and dusted all that was left to do was the photos of just the two of them and at the Mansion in round hay you don’t know where to start.
The mansion offers perfect photo opportunities inside and out and if you have enough time you could even go for a walk around the stunning park its self.


Ben and Heather East Riddelsden Hall

This weekend, these award winning photographers from Leeds were delighted to be returning to East Riddelsden hall. Located in the historical town of Keighley, this 17th century manor house is always a please to be photographing at.To kick start the day, Megan and Dave met their stunning bride; Heather, back at the house photographing her preparations.  Before they got shots of all the bridesmaid’s the Leeds Wedding photographers headed upstairs to photograph her stunning lacey dress looking almost as beautiful hung up as it did on Heather. The dress made a perfect backdrop for all her accessories she was to wear on the day.Prep was unusually calm, no rushing around at all as everything was perfectly organized.  Once Dave and Megan had finished with the preparations, they headed to the closeby church to meet Ben and his groomsmen.It came to their surprise when the vicar allowed both Dave and Megan to photograph anywhere within St Mary’s Horsforth, many people commented on just how welcoming Father Boniface was.   Heather and Ben had organized a local school choir to sing along throughout the hymns, a beautiful touch that really gave the service that something extra!Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too great, so the team kept a few people back to get some photos before heading to East Riddelsden Hall.

 Luckily the rain had stopped by this point meaning a quick run around the gardens with the Happy Couple to make sure they got as many stunning photos as they could before the heavens opened again.  Before long it was time for speeches. At East Riddelsden hall the wedding breakfast is held in an old converted barn just across the lake giving the photos a quirkier feel to them.

Whilst everyone ate, the team started setting up one of our popular photo booths.  Hiring our photo booths can be a perfect end to your special day and a lovely keep sake for your guests as we, unlike most, offer double prints, one for your guests and one for your complimentary guest book provided on the day.
