The Faversham Leeds Wedding
The Faversham Leeds Weddings are a particular favourite of ours, if we do say so. This was our second time we had shot a wedding at The Faversham. It’s a great venue just a stones throw from Leeds City Centre and attracts cool and fun couples who want something just a little bit different for their wedding just like Roz + Jim. It is in the heart of the University Area so you can just imagine how ace this venue is.
Kelly headed off to groom prep just a few miles from the Faversham to meet a super cool Jim and his best Man while Paul, headed towards Leeds City Centre on the train to see Roz and her bridal party.
There was a little surprise for Roz when leaving for the venue. It is Roz’s dream to own a camper van. Not any old camper van though, it would have to be a VW Camper van. We had a secret chat with Jim over the months leading up to the wedding and we just knew how much Roz would love a camper van for her wedding so, Jim along with Roz’s parents surprised her by hiring one for the day! The camper arrived just as Roz was leaving the hotel and it transported her, Roz’s mum, dad to the venue. Roz was over the moon!
The ceremony was conducted with a very happy and giggling couple and everyone headed outside to throw the most confetti ever known to man over Jim + Roz. We were finding it for months afterwards!

After the confetti was thrown we headed out with Jim + Roz in the camper van to get some pictures. We were only supposed to be gone for 20 mins but it was over an hour! Now let us explain. It was the most mental, funniest, memorable journey we can ever wish to have and doubt it will ever be topped. The driver of the van was such a character. He drove us to Leeds Dock. Double parked, got us lost on the one way system in the centre of Leeds. When we finally arrived at the Dock we spent 10 mins walking around getting great portraits of R+J before heading back to the van only to find the driver missing. We waited a few minutes for him to show, he was only shopping in Tescos! Roz, Jim and ourselves were in tears of laughter. It was just so funny and one of our top 10 moments of our wedding career. We laughed so hard with these two on that day.
We headed back to the Faversham and told the story to the rest of wedding party before everyone sat down to listen to the speeches and eat their bodyweight in amazing food.

After the food was finished we were gifted with a great sunset so we did a high five and a HELL YES and took Roz+ Jim out for some more pictures. We popped over to the Uni grounds where we followed that beautiful golden light before heading back indoors to their first dance. We listened and watched the New York Brass Band who were amazing as always. We hung out with all the guests who were here for the evening. This included Roz’s American Football team mates, Yep Roz plays American Football in her free time. These ladies are so much fun and we were elated to hang out with them again this year at Karis + Emma’s Wedding. Seriously they know how to have all of the fun.
Massive Thanks to Jim + Roz for having us along. We laughed so much that our tummies hurt. You are both amazing people and we have been keeping this wedding all to ourselves. So here we are sharing over a year later a few of our favourite images from The Faversham Leeds Wedding.
