A beautiful DIY wedding at Huddersfield Ukrainian Club, with a little trip up to Blackely Moor. 

It was a real treat to be a part of Hannah and Angus' very special wedding day in Huddersfield. As soon as I met them I knew we were going to get on well, and I was instantly excited to be their wedding photographer. 


Hannah and Angus are high school sweethearts and have been engaged for several years. They have spent time living apart due to university and Hannah even spent her gap year in Lebanon. All this meant that the wedding was a long-anticipated and very exciting event. 


Hannah got ready along with her bridesmaids in her Grandad's old house, which is where she and Angus are currently living. The house is amazing and full of so much history. Her Grandad is an artist and the house was full of his work, which Hannah proudly showed me. It was such a lovely place to photograph. The ceremony was at their church, Oakes Baptist. The service was very moving and personal to them. The minister gave them a knitted bride and groom set, which is apparently a tradition of the church. 


After the service Hannah. Angus and I whipped up to nearby Blackley where we could get some photos with a view. We had found this idyllic place during a recent meeting, and it really was perfect. The weather held out all day despite a forecast of bad rain and cloud. 


DIY weddings are one of my favourite things to photograph. Huddersfield Ukrainian Club is the perfect blank canvas for any wedding. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a large lounge, function room and bar as well as large gardens. It is a private venue with lots of parking and is very close to the motorway. Hannah and Angus had a Yorkshire theme and amongst their decorations were a Yorkshire quiz and a homemade bottle of elderflower cordial for every guest. 


The evening ended with the dance floor packed as the Elements Band played the night away. 


Thank you so much for having me, Hannah and Angus.
