Wedding photography at Harewood House, Leeds

Louise and Matthew were married at St John The Baptist Church, Leeds and afterwards at Harewood House, Leeds. The weather forecast all week was for heavy rain, so we fully expected a drenching. As luck would have it, Louise had some lovely weather for much of the day, including the all important arriving at church and leaving church shots. The bride and groom were also able to enjoy some time on the terrace at Harewood House with their wedding guests, before rain stopped play and they all ducked for cover in the cafe.

After a short shower, we managed to take a few more of the group shots before heading to the Courtyard for more champagne.

The day started at home for Louise, who wore a gorgeous dress she designed herself and made by Limited Editions, which included a teal coloured velvet cloak and hood. Her hair was in wringlettes, which totally suited the overall look and style. For the ladies, Louise treated herself to shoes from Benjamin Adams. She and her mum travelled to church in a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, which also drove Louise and Matthew to Harewood House after the service.

Harewood’s terrace and gardens were immaculate despite the rain, a superb back drop for an afternoon wedding reception. Nothing was too much trouble for wedding host Lorraine, who was thanked with a lovely bouquet of flowers by the couple during the wedding breakfast. After their meal in The Courtyard, guests enjoyed ‘coffee with the penguins’ – really, live penguins just outside the main building. Lorraine then drove Matthew and Louise to the lake, where we spent a short while taking photographs around the lake and on the bridge, before returning to The Courtyard for the first dance and a party!!
