Normally we book weddings months, years in advance. Since Covid things have been flipped on it’s head and we have literally been booking weddings in the same week! Kate + Ash asked me a few days before their Iberica Leeds Micro Wedding if we were available and we were! The wedding was just a small wedding with less than 20 people so Ash + Kate didn’t really need the both of us so Paul headed off solo to shoot this gorgeous Leeds Micro Wedding.
Once I had had my first La Bottega Milanes coffee fixes in over 18 months I headed across Bond Court to the Dakota Hotel in Leeds. This was my first visit and what a cool place to get ready. The hotel is chic, the interior is beautiful and the rooms are spacious. I met Kate and the girls there where they quickly got ready before they all walked over to Leeds Civic Hall. Leeds has changed a lot in this last 18 months and one of those changes has seen an end to Leeds Town Hall wedding ceremonies. The new venue is The Leeds Civic Hall on Millenium Square and is just around the corner from the Town Hall and it’s absolutely amazing. This was my first time shooting it and I’m excited to hopefully shoot it again soon with Kel getting to experience it’s beauty too!
After the ceremony was finished everyone headed outside for a few pictures on the steps before I whisked Kate + Ash off for a few images of them both around the quieter back streets of Leeds for bride and groom portraits.
Their wedding reception was held at Iberica in Leeds in their private dining space upstairs which is absolutely perfect for a small intimate weddings like Kate + Ash had. Once the impromptu speeches were delivered and food was served it was time for me to leave the wedding party for them to enjoy the rest of their day together.
Kate + Ash, Thank you for asking me to come to your wedding for a few hours. I had a lovely afternoon with you all. It may not have been the Portugal Wedding you had planned but I think you had the best day with your family and friends.
