Matt & Simone’s Wedding @ Holdsworth House Hotel
midweek wedding halifax
After briefly dating at school, before splitting, Matt being keen with Simone less so, these star-crossed lovers reconnected in 2008.
On a night out, they held hands under a table, before sharing a taxi home & a little kiss. Simone’s nerves got the best of her though, resulting in her Mum texting Matt the next day, to arrange a date.
After 7 years together, living together for a few of them, they want to York for the weekend, revisiting after spending their first anniversary there. Despite having several scenarios planned, Matt waited til they were alone before proposing.
I’d met them at a previous wedding that I photographed, and Simone got in touch to book me for theirs, at the stunning Holdsworth House Hotel, Halifax. I could spend days there, taking in the gardens, finding the hidden treasures inside.
With a shared love for Lord of the Rings, it was only right that that was the theme of their day. I arrived during her preparations to a very nervous Simone, awesomely assisted into calming down by her maid of honour.
After Matt posed with his proud Papa, Simone prepared to be walked down the ‘aisle’ by hers.
They said their vows in the most beautiful sunshine.
Signed the all important register.
Before we used the beautiful settings to take some family photos…
I pinched the newlyweds for photos with their car, in a birdcage, AND saying hello to the resident rabbits!
Before their enthusiastic loved ones showered them in confetti.
