When Ema & Michael got married…

Ok so I’ve been really slack with my blogging, in fact to the point of non existent! Sooo I’ve challenged myself to get this running regularly again…

Thank you for reading this blog post. If you're looking for a wedding photographer, click here to view my wedding packages or you can contact me to check availability.

So… Michael & Ema! I took this job as a friend and colleague was called in for surgery so it was all a bit last minute to be fair..

I have to say though it was a blessing in disguise!!  From the 1st meeting with them over coffee I knew this was going to be a whole lot of fun.  They seemed a little bit nuts, just like me!!

I’ve recently moved to Dewsbury myself so it was also a pleasure to only have to fall out of bed to head to theirs for the bridal preparations.

Gutted… Bad start.. I could have stayed in bed longer.. lol

I had got up to make a full English before the shoot (standard) and when I got there Ema had put on a load of breakfast stuff..

Anyone who knows me, knows full well I’m partial to the odd bacon, sausage, egg, mushroom and hash brown sarnie 😉 but… given the fact I’m now struggling to get into my wedding suits I had to decline…

Ok back to the wedding blog Ben!  Bridal preps were fun as always.  Ema is a beautiful young woman so the shots looked great!

So next we were on to the Venue.  Its the 1st time I’ve shot at the Town Hall in Dewsbury and it was a pleasant surprise.  A beautiful Room!!!

First up though we had a giggle with the lads striking some poses on the steps.

(One thing I haven’t mentioned yet is Michael and Ema’s second home from Home The Muscle Pit in Dewsbury run by a bit of a Legend Sam Cullingworth (who turned up sporting an awesome Kilt on the day.  He had us all in stitches … one very cool dude!)

The Ceremony was beautiful.  Lots of emotion and as ever a privilege to be a part of..

So here’s a really cool twist and definitely a first for me!  I shot straight off after the wedding ceremony to head to Woodkirk Valley Country Club .

I had to get there quickly as Michael & Ema were due to arrive by Helicopter !!!  Courtesy of Michael’s friend …..

One or two got a little carried away though…

The weather wasn’t the kindest for us but that didn’t dampen  our spirits (sorry..)

We did get a little break in the weather to do some portraits too which was fab!!

I even hung around after the 1st dance to grab some night shots which was well worth it as there is a lovely little bandstand at Woodkirk Valley Country Club

A real pleasure to meet Michael & Ema and to have been a part of their special day. The love between Michael & Ema was just beautiful to see.

Two amazing people
