A beautiful Yorkshire Barn Wedding with rustic touches and bluebells

Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful Yorkshire Barn Wedding with rustic touches and bluebells.

Images were captured by Matt Thompson Photography.


Matt Thompson is a Wedding and Portrait Photographer based in a tiny village in Yorkshire…


He says of the couple and their day…


“My first wedding of 2017 was at The Old Barn at Esholt and it was perfect.”

“The sun was out, apart from the odd 5 minute rain and hail shower, and the drinks was flowing.”

“The Old Barn is situated just north of Bradford, West Yorkshire and 2minutes drive from the famous Woolpack pub from Emmerdale. And yes, we did pop over for a couple photos.”

“I’ve known the Groom Liam for quite a few years from when we used gig together, so it was really nice to meet Sadie and photograph their wedding.”

“The day started off at the Mercure Bradford Bankfield Hotel where Sadie and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done by the very talented Teri Rochelle Beauty & Make-up.”

“Their wedding car to get them to the venue was a classic VW camper van provided by Yorkshire Wedding Cars.”


“The ceremony was beautiful, with everyone was in tears (even the best man) and a reading by the bride’s maid of honour was the icing on the cake.”

“After the ceremony we quickly hopped in the camper van down the road to The Woolpack.”

“I never realised how difficult it was to take pictures while bouncing around in the back of a camper.”

“We also took advantage of the gardens for some candid, relaxed photos.”

“My aim isn’t to pose my wedding couples too much, but let them have some alone time and chat while I  capture some natural laughter.”


“Back at The Old Barn the alcohol was flowing, everyone was having a great time and after the wedding breakfast everyone headed to the driving range next door for a spot of golf. ”

“This also made for a perfect spot for some last minute portraits with Sadie and Liam as the sun was setting just in front.”

“The best part of the wedding for me was just walking around in between all the different groups, documenting everyone laughing, having a good time and even catching the start of a food fight and the dancing.”
