Tower House Hotel, Halifax Wedding Photography – Jess & Mark

Jess and Mark’s wedding was a big bag of emotions, those who attended and those who I’ve talked too after will know what I’m talking about. It was a real honour to be able to capture Jess and Mark’s day and editing the wedding photos after and writing this blog has probably been one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in my wedding photography career.

Church Wedding

I don’t do enough church weddings and I wish I did more so I was super excited when Jess and Mark told me they were having a church ceremony in Halifax. The buildings are absolutely stunning and the stained glass at the front of the church always makes for a perfect backdrop. The wedding ceremony took place at Holy Trinity and St. Judes Church in Halifax, not far from where Jess got ready with the amazing Leighnicole wedding make up at Tower House Hotel.

Wedding Photos That Mean Everything

After the ceremony we didn’t head to the usual place where most couples go straight away, but instead headed to Overgate Hospice in Halifax where her dad was staying, battling Pancreatic cancer. The staff at the hospice had done a fantastic job, decorating the room out for Jess and Mark’s arrival and even putting a bottle of bubbly on ice for arrival. Her dad was determined to see his daughter walk down the isle and even though he couldn’t be there, the ceremony was facetimed to him to watch. As a wedding photographer my job is so so important. I never know what a photo will mean to someone after I’ve taken it, but I do know these will mean everything to Jess and her family as sadly her dad passed away the next day.

Wedding Photography on a Rainy Day

You never know what weather you’ll get with an English wedding and especially a Halifax wedding. One Yorkshire wedding in April I had Sun, rain, high winds and hail all in one day! So when it started raining just before the group shots were to take place, I knew there’d be some sun at some point for the couple shots and there was! I managed to grab them for about 5 minutes just before the speeches as the sun came out and then again after the meal. But even if it does rain, it doesn’t mean all photos have to be stopped. As a wedding photographer it’s my job to come up with solutions to problems and finding nice indoor areas to photograph in.
