Tanya and Dan only contacted us about 6 weeks before their Out barn Autumn Wedding after their original photographer was unfortunately unable to shoot their wedding. Funnily enough, we had a booking at The Out barn in the diary already and T+D’s wedding happened to be the weekend before.
The morning started off in Oakworth at Dan + Tanya’s house where the boys were getting ready. Kel arrived with our good friend Harrison from Fletcher Films just as the boys were tucking into their breakfast. After the morning of getting ready the transport arrived. Dan’s groomsmen definitely picked the transport of the year with this one. A FRICKIN’ FIRE ENGINE! It was so cool climbing the steps into the cab and driving along with the guys, just a shame we couldn’t fire up the blues and two’s. Paul headed over to the beautiful village of Sutton in Craven to Tanya’s parent’s house where the girls were pampered by the ladies from Coden and giggled away with some fizz and the wedding morning playlist.
North Yorkshire Church Wedding
D+T chose to get married at the local church to Tanya’s parent’s house. Everyone arrived through the amazing flower arch eagerly awaiting Tanya’s arrival. During the ceremony, there was a beautiful moment where some of the school children who Tanya teaches at her primary school arrived and sang to the whole wedding party during the ceremony. It was an absolutely wonderful moment to see. The kids were so excited to sing to Tanya + Dan and everyone gave them a standing ovation as their vocals ended.
Cowling Pinnacle Wedding Photos
After the ceremony, we headed out of the church to bundle a tonne of confetti over the newlyweds before taking a moment to enjoy licks and cuddles from Winnie the dog. The weather forecast was clear so we decided to make the most of our location and head up onto the moors above Cowling to the Cowling Pinnacle or Salt + Pepper pots as they are affectionately known locally. We took these guys to the highest point we could, made them climb onto huge rocks and stand on the edge so we could grab some pictures of these two and capture the gorgeous foggy but dry Yorkshire/Lancashire scenery before we headed off to the Out barn. Tanya was definitely up for this as her shoes were off and she was barefoot marching Dan to wherever we needed them to be.
Out barn Autumn Wedding
As the happy couple rolled up to the entrance of The Out barn a big cheer rang out from the awaiting guests and it was time for a few drinks, canapes and some chill time before everyone headed to sit down and eat pie. Before the pie could be served there was a game of pass the parcel with some fun prizes and forfeits included which had all the wedding guests involved and everyone had so much fun. The winner of pass the parcel on each table was chosen to serve the pie to all the guests at their table. Can we just also take a moment to talk about the pie. We have to say in all our wedding time and that is now 10 YEARS this pie was one of the best wedding meals that we have EVER had the good fortune of tasting. It was absolutely wonderful! Once the pie was polished off (and there was no wastage let us tell you) the speeches started. There was a mixture of fun, laughter and touching moments with a bit of head in hands ‘I can’t believe he just said that’ moments from Tanya too.
Once the speeches had finished it was time to party! Everyone danced the night away while tucking into Tanya’s mum’s amazing homemade cheesecake, toasting marshmallows, eating from the crisp station (another amazing idea Tanya!) and drinking plenty from the bar.
A big thank you to T+D for booking us to shoot your wedding. We know we weren’t your original choice for wedding photographers but we are so pleased that we got to shoot your wedding. Here are just a few of our faves from your Out barn Autumn Wedding
