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.

The Woodlands hotel Wedding Photographer.

Hayley and Robert decided on a beautiful church service, but before the ceremony was to begin we were to get some stunning photographs of the bridal preparations where her friends, family and bridesmaids all helped Hayley prepare for her big day.
Hanging up elegantly in the Mothers bedroom was her beautiful wedding dress where the Leeds Based Wedding Photographers then continued to take photos of all the accesories that she decided to wear on the day. With just a spot of of hair and makeup to go, she was now ready to head off to the church to meet her nervous husband to be at the alter. When we arrived at Birkenshaw church to continue with more photos we took position ready for the brides arrival where all the guests, including one very nervous one, stood patiently waiting for her. The ceremony took place, the vows were said and the rings were exchanged, they were now husband and wife.
It was now time for the award winning photographers in leeds;Dave Spink Photography team to head over to The Woodlands hotel, one of our favorite  venues and conveniently located just down the road from Megan’s house. Luckily for Hayley and Rob the weather only got brighter as the day went on, despite the unsettling predictions we saw just the night before. There was plenty of time to take lots of lovely natural shots out side as everyone mingled together with a nice glass of champagne and some freshly prepared canapés, that, may I add smelt and looked absolutely delicious.
With just enough time before the wedding breakfast we then decide to now go ahead with the bridal party photos, this time we tried something a little different. The Woodlands wedding photographers had access to one of the hotel rooms meaning they were able to get a shot from above the gardens. The Dave Spink Photography team decided to get the entire wedding party to make a heart shape and then positioned Hayley and Rob in the middle of them all, looking like the happiest couple on the planet. I thought the shot turned out fantastic for a first attempt if  do say so myself!
As everyone started to filter inside we took the opportunity to get some nice romantic photos of just the two of them, one being our famous ‘vail shot’ which a lot of people ask for if they’ve seen our previous work either online or at the photography studio in Farsley.
Now it was time for us to leave them to their Wedding breakfast so they could all stress a little about their speeches.
Following swiftly onto the speeches, they took up position and captured every laugh clap and tear that we could possibly see in order to keep their memory of their formalities freshly in their minds for years to come!
All left to do is the dance and of course our extremely popular PhotoBooth that our events team had the pleasure of attending to. Unsurprisingly by the look of the photos everyone seemed to have a fantastic time.

Hayley and dan Woodlands Hotel 29th september

The Woodlands Hotel photographers

Hayley and Dan had their wedding at Dave Spink photography’s very familiar wedding venue The Woodlands Hotel, a venue Dave and Megan have a lot of experience with and is considered one of their favourite in the area and are always happy to get enquires for it.
Hayley started out firstly at her house where she was getting ready for her big day, her dress was beautiful, gems embroidered onto the front and gorgeous netting that hung down effortlessly. The bridesmaid dresses were bright purple so again lovely for one of our favourite colour popping photos as shown below, an effect we get asked to do on a regular basis, and what a picture it made. The bride accessorised with earrings, a necklace a stunning head-piece to finish the look, not forgetting her gorgeous Pandora bracelet! Before long she was ready to get some quick snaps with her girls and head off to the Church. Hayley had opted for a vintage style VW camper van, they are becoming increasingly popular and bring something a little different to the day as a-posed to the regular cars we see.
Woodlands wedding photographers from leeds had arrived at the church they went for a little wonder around, trying to familiarise themselves with the surroundings , to make pictures later go as quick and painless as possible.
Considering the time of year, the weather actually stayed very nice, lots of lovely, bright winter sun, perfect for some natural photos outside, but not too many! Wouldn’t want anyone to freeze! Before the ceremony was to begin, Dave and Megan went to hunt down the guys for their pre ceremony shots! None of which looked too nervous, but as per, it was a different story when he saw his gorgeous bride making her entrance, and what an entrance it was, not a dry eye in the house. Breath taking.
Tears were shed, rings were exchanged and the vows were made, they were now husband and wife! Time to get The Woodlands hotel and spa!
The couple arrived after everyone else in their funky VW camper van, with their heads poking out of the root top, looking happier then ever! the photos were a pleasure to do, everyone was happy and the day went perfectly, guests stayed outside for a nice drink meaning more stunning natural shots for the happy couple. With the sun shining so beautifully on the day, it meant during the photos of the bridal party the team managed to capture natural lens flare across many of the photos, bringing something a little bit different and artistic to the day.
Although The Woodlands isn’t the biggest venue in the world, you’d be surprised as to how many different backdrops you can find, so when the team came to getting the photos of the two of them, they soon found themselves with many different shots and poses, a personal favourite being by the big stone stairs in the gardens.
Dave spink photography aren’t part timers, it was now time for them to head to the wedding breakfast up to the reception, so it was an all day one for the team today! The Woodlands hotel have their wedding breakfast/receptions in their unique marquee which works well in both winter and summer! inside its bright and airy meaning no need to harsh flash when doing the speeches , just lovely natural lighting in many cases!
as for the night do, they light the place with beautiful chandeliers casting a stunning ambient light. Also shows very well on Hayley and Robs blog as well!
