As a recommended Bowcliffe Hall wedding photographer I have covered many weddings at this beautiful venue. It’s a stunning and very unique grade II listed building located near Wetherby. It used to be owned by Robert Blackburn an aviation pioneer, hence all the aircraft and car memorabilia around the location. The venue is actually a combination of very different interiors, with the modern aviation inspired areas such as the Blackburn wing (in the shape of giant aircraft wing) and the stunning Georgian ballroom with a gilded ceiling and beautiful chandelier. There are interesting and varied interiors at every turn!

This time I had returned to Bowcliffe to photograph Ajem and Joe’s big day. This was a perfect weather day for the couple with lots of sunshine so they were really able to make use of the house and the grounds. I arrived to meet Ajem and her bridesmaids and family members in good spirits and excited for the day ahead. Meanwhile, Joe was getting ready offsite at a farm lodge in the countryside near Long Marston and being photographed by my second shooter. Once ready, the groom party and guests all piled on to a double decker bus to head for the venue.

The day went without a hitch with a beautiful outdoor ceremony adorned with flowers and attended by lots of happy guests. Joe did shed a tear upon seeing Ajem enter the garden aisle with her father, probably because she looked absolutely stunning in her elegant white gown! After a few lovely readings and they exchange of rings the couple walked down the aisle to much applause. They were then bombarded with confetti! This day had such a lovely atmosphere with lots of happy and very fun guests all getting along like a house on fire. I particularly enjoyed the speeches on this wedding as they evoked so much laughter and happy tears and were thoroughly enjoyed by the guests. The day came to and end with Joe whisking his new bride around the dance floor, before a crowd joined them and rocked the night away.

Kirsty is so talented! She took the most beautiful photos of our wedding and told the story of our day perfectly. We were completely blown away when we received our wedding gallery! Her photos capture all the emotions, making them such a lovely memory to look back on.
