“The photos are perfect, thank you so much Michelle for capturing our best day ever xxxxxx”
Shots and laughs were the theme of the day for Mel and Matt on their big day – before & after the ceremony!
The serious bit
The ceremony took place at the Calderdale Registry office in a lovely intimate civil ceremony. Matt needed a bit of dutch courage and a bit (ok a lot) of help with his button hole, but we got there in the end! Mel arrived in a beautiful classic car with her bridesmaids & brother who was giving her away. It was absolutely pouring down when she arrived but that wasn’t going to stop Mel from smiling! Anyway rain on your wedding day is good luck, do you know why? A wet knot can never be undone.
When Mel entered the room everyone was blown away by her stunning dress. The detail on the back was amazing. She looked simply stunning and its safe to say Matt was over the moon to see his new bride. The ceremony was intimate, full of smiles and heart felt exchange of vows.
After the ceremony and before we headed over to the Brighouse Party Venue for their reception and party the couple had another shot to celebrate getting hitched, not sure Mel was all the keen to be honest! Before heading into the venue we stopped to do some portraits of them both and to give them a few minutes to take it all in.
Inside the venue the couple had decorated in a rustic theme with cake and sweet cart fitting in nicely. Speeches were emotional, honest and the best man had me laughing, so it must have been a good un’.
Huge thanks to the new Mr & Mrs Cooke for asking me to capture their special day all of your Friends and family made me feel incredibly welcome all day. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, get in touch. Here are the photos!
