A Small Wedding Ceremony in Leeds
2020 started for us with over 30 weddings and finished shooting just 3. One of those weddings was for Kimberley + Jason and their Crafthouse Micro Wedding and what a day we had.
K+J had planned all along for a small wedding of around 30 people. Covid had other plans and by the time the day came around were only able to invite less than 15 people. Nevertheless, they were determined to get married and what a day they made of it!
The wedding ceremony took place in the chapel at Leeds General Infirmary. On walking in, we couldn’t believe that this chapel is inside the hospital and nestled inbetween the working wards. It’s absolutely stunning! As the small wedding ceremony took place we enjoyed photographing K+J, their close family and friends. Even their loved ones attended the wedding through a Zoom call! People from all over the world managed to click the link and watch them get married. We even had some of the readings done through Zoom!
Wedding Portraits in the Yorkshire Dales
The best thing for us about K+J’s Micro wedding was the amount of time we managed to spend with them. Usually, on a typical wedding day, we get about 20/30 mins with a wedding couple. With K+J their private dining experience at Crafthouse wasn’t booked until early evening so we made use of the time we had with them. We decided to wander the back streets of Leeds for some city centre bridal portraits. After that we all jumped in our car and drove a good 30 minutes to the Otley Chevin. We had some amazing views of Yorkshire from the top.
On arriving at Otley Chevin we asked K+J to climb onto the top of the rocks for their stunning wedding photographs. People out on their dog walks were congratulating them as they passed by which is always so lovely. The sun beamed down on them and we really had a laugh! We really enjoyed being able to spend so much time with a couple taking pictures on their wedding day. We know this won’t always be the case but we are truly grateful to K+J for all the time they spent with us. As we headed back to the car we all grabbed a cheeky ice cream and scoffed it whilst exchanging many a giggle.
Micro Wedding at Crafthouse
We headed back into the City where Kim had a quick outfit change. From there we headed to the Crafthouse to carry on with the celebrations with a cake cut and a meal with their nearest and dearest.
We would like to give massive thanks to K+J for sticking to your wedding day plans. It was much more about you as a couple getting married than the other things that usually come with a wedding. It was really refreshing for us to shoot. We hope to see many more couples planning their wedding day in a similar way to you two.
Here are just a few of our faves from the day…
