Wintery Vintage Glam – Real Wedding – Images by Pete Barnes Photo

Today I am thrilled to share the beautiful Wedding of Danni and Matt with stunning imagery by Pete Barnes Photography.

Based in Wakefield Pete offers contemporary, professional, reportage wedding photography with traditional elements.

Pete shares his recollections of the day,

“We recently had the pleasure of providing the wedding photography for the beautiful wedding of Danielle and Matt at the Holdsworth House Hotel near Halifax.  I’ll start by saying that we had been looking forward to this wedding since they booked us over a year ago.  Danni and Matt are such a lovely couple it was another one of these weddings where we really felt more like guests with cameras instead of wedding photographers.”

“There was quite a thick frost about which is generally the case for February weddings but it looked great, almost like a light dusting of snow,  I knew if it stayed clear and we could get the couple outside before it got dark we would be laughing.  It was quite cold out, people weren’t overly thrilled about darting out for the quick big group photo but we managed and did a few smaller groups indoors but I always say to couples I try and keep group shots to a minimum.”

“Danni and Matt had to endure the cold for a little longer as we wandered about getting a few shots but they were great and didn’t feel the cold (or so they said!) It would be far too cheesy to say their love for each other kept them warm, so I won’t.”

“Danni was an old work colleague of my assistant (& soon to be wife) Carol so it was nice that we weren’t total strangers.  Both the bride and groom were really easy going and a lot of fun to take photos of.”

“The couple had put a lot of work into all the decorations, going for a bit of a vintage theme.  They had cool candle jars covered in lace and had made sloe gin for the favours which looked great in the little bottles.  Each table was named after a famous movie couple which I thought was a great idea.  Everyone enjoyed the meal and the speeches and we stuck around until the first dance just doing informal shots here and there.  All in all it was a great and we were happy to have provided the photography and shared their day.”

I adore all the amazing tiny details of this Wedding, the couple have put a lot of thought, and have been incredibly busy with the DIY aspects of their day to have everything just as they want it and Pete has captured it al perfectly in some incredible images.
