 Mr & Mrs Macalister’s

Holmfield Arms Wakefield Wedding

Bride and Groom sat in horse drawn carriage

I loved photographing Mr & Mrs Macalister’s wedding. From the moment I stepped into Bridal Preparations in the morning to the very last shot I took in the evening, it was a laugh a minute.


Mr & Mrs Macalister are both expats who normally live in the much warmer climate of Tenerife and had come back to the UK and Mrs Macalisters hometown Wakefield to get married. I joked with them that I do travel and do destination weddings around the world haa

Bridal Preparations 

It wasn’t long after I arrived to photograph bridal preparations that one of the funniest moments so far in my career as a wedding photographer happened.

From upstairs, we heard, Who is bloody hell is FRANK BIRD! Because he’s got my dress and I have his wedding suit!

Haa, a big mixup had happened with the groom. Mr Macaslister had mistakenly taken his mother-in-law to be outfit with him to the wedding venue!

Luckily the wedding venue Holmfield Arms was only a short drive across the city from where bridal preparations were taking place.

So like the good professional I am, I volunteer to drive to Holmfiled Arms in the park and swop the dress and suit around 😂

Love and marriage, horse and carriage

Mrs Macalister was transported in true fairytale style to Holmfield Arms by two beautiful horses who pulled one of the most magnificent carriages I have seen!

The two white stallions were beautiful and gracious animals. Mrs Macalister arrived at the Homefield Arms to be greeted by her friends that had traveled far and wide to come and see them get married.

The Macalister’s wedding service was also full of joyful moments, with both the bride and groom enjoying their wedding service to the maximum. Once the service was almost done, the bride and groom walked down the aisle as the new Mr & Mrs Macalister, to your guest. 

“Love and marriage, love and marriage

They go together like a horse and carriage.”

Reception in the Maqueee

After the service, it was time for the celebrations to begin in Holmfield Arms Marquee, Mr & Mrs Macalister Danced the night away with all their friends and family. 

I have to give a special mention that Mrs Macalister made her own wedding cake, and it was one of the best I have seen so far.
