In contrast to a weekend observing the pomp and ceremony of the Queen’s Jubilee, my bank holiday ended with one of the most laid back and informal weddings I’ve ever been to. Yet, what was great about Emma and Steve’s day was that it was still filled with class and sophistication. This was helped greatly by their choice of venue, the 315 Bar in Huddersfield.
Emma’s Mark Lesley dress was originally strapless but she had it customised with lace matching the detail on the back of the dress.
The venue has ten rooms which were all taken by Emma, Steve and their guests.
The ceremony took place in the Ingram Suite, which provides a completely contained space for the entire wedding celebrations.
We kept a close eye on the weather all day and were able to get outside for the drink reception, groups and bride and groom portraits before the heavens opened.
These tasty looking cupcakes were all Emma and Steve’s own handy work!
Emma insisted on keeping things informal and so asked her dad, Kevin to give a short, simple toast after the meal. Kevin had other ideas though and wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to pay a heart-felt and funny tribute to his daughter and new son-in-law.
The night was rounded off with a fantastic Michael Buble tribute act who had no trouble filling the dancefloor. Although Emma and Steve didn’t like the idea of a first dance, they were still among the first to hit the floor!
Huge congratulations to Emma and Steve. I can’t wait to show them the rest of the images when they return from their Honeymoon in Paris.
