Thwaite Mills Leeds Wedding
Diana + Alex’s Thwaite Mills Leeds Wedding took place 2 years ago. At the time we previewed 9 of our favourite images from their day but thought it was about time we shared the full wedding with you all! We would absolutely love to shoot more weddings like this at venues like this. Relaxed, fun and colourful.

‘Being at a wedding is something that happens once, photographers are something you need to get right. We did. These guys were amazing. Essentially Paul became an honorary bridesmaid, while Kel became an integral part of the groom’s party. The photos they took captured our eclectic and wonderful wedding and the mass stupidity that ensued. We really cant thank them enough for being a part of the day’
Here are more of our favourites from Alex + Diana’s day.

Diana + Alex were married at the end of July 2017 at the beautiful Thwaite Mills in Leeds
Diana Shared some really great information when she was features on the Wedding blog Mr + Mrs Unique:
Remember that it’s your day and not anyone else’s and make your choices based on that fact. Saying that, do consider your guests: plan your timings carefully – you don’t want to keep guests hungry or thirsty or conversely, feed them too much so that they’re tired and don’t want to party. Decide very early on what your priorities as a couple are: ours were food, drink, photography and fun. The biggest thing that everyone said to us and we still didn’t manage enough was to spend as much time as possible with each other – it is YOUR wedding after all. It’s so easy to get distracted by friends and family who you haven’t seen for ages. Paul and Kel, our photographers were great at knowing the perfect time for us to go to have our photos taken; we definitely needed some time on our own by then.
Don’t plan the wedding you think other people want you to have, or the wedding that you think you should have. We were very lucky that we did both options of a quiet Registry Office ceremony and a family lunch with 16 guests only and also the big party where we were able to personalise every aspect where an official, licensed venue wouldn’t be able to offer. Additionally, we had a celebration in Thailand for those people who couldn’t come to England so we had it all. Although, I (Diana) really enjoyed choosing every single aspect of the day, it is tough whilst working full-time and we really wish that we had employed a co-ordinator to liaise with all the different suppliers and vendors and to be in charge on the day. Saying that, everyone, vendors and guests, helped out coming up to the wedding and on the day so don’t be scared to ask for help.
