Mr & Mrs Yearsley’s End of Summer wedding at Holmfirth Vineyard was very special to me, as it was the first time this West Yorkshire wedding photographer had been back to what I would consider one the best wedding venues in West Yorkshire. In fact, I was last at the vineyard more than 4 years ago! For Mr & Mrs Oakes stunning wedding
I would say that Holmfirth Vineyard does have the best views of any west Yorkshire wedding venue. The fantastic views your get of the rolling West Yorkshire hills above the Holme Valley in Holmfirth are just stunning. There is a reason why this town was a film location for so many years. It showcased the stunning West Yorkshire Countryside and the Provincial Town of Holmfirth. As a West Yorkshire Wedding Photographer and an avid Yorkshire lad, I am proud of the Yorkshire landscape.
Mr & Mrs Yearsly’s wedding was an international affair with family members of the bride and groom travelling from all over the world to Holmfirth in West Yorkshire, for that would turn out to be such a stunning and beautiful wedding.
My day started with Mrs Yearsly Birdal’s preparations at the Retreat Complex. The complex is just down the hill from the vineyard.
The accommodations are one of the many things that give the venue the edge over other West Yorkshire wedding venues because the vineyard has on-site accommodations. Is so easy for you and your guest.
The Retreat Complex can be hired for you and your guest to say the night before and the night of your wedding. And the rooms are perfect for bridal preparations, Mrs Yearsly was getting ready in the bridal suite, and her bridesmaids were getting ready in one of the apartments downstairs.
The Vineyard has two London Taxi specials to transport you and your guest to the top of the hill. This was one of the new additions since the last time I photographed a wedding at the venue, which I found to be a fun addition.
One of the other things I love about the Ceremony suite at the vineyard is how light and airy it is. It’s perfect for wedding ceremonies, with big glass windows filling the room with bright natural light that bonuses off the white walls of the banquet room/ceremony room. I think it gives your guest this heavenly feeling.
The natural light that filled through the room meant that I didn’t have to use my flash jousting the wedding service.
When it was time for the Family formals, there was only one location I wanted to photograph the newlywed couple, and that was down amongst the vines!
Halfway down the vineyard, there is a terrace with a view to kill! The terrace has a beautiful view of the rolling west Yorkshire countryside. It’s the perfect place to photograph all the family formal, providing your guest can walk a short distance halfway down the hill.
For Mr & Mrs Yearslys bride and groom shoot, we headed again down in the vineyard. We were surrounded by a big sky, fluffy clouds, and vines. It made for some fantastic jaw-drop only in West Yorkshire wedding photography images.
Later on, in the evening, Mr & Mrs Yearsly and all their guest from all over the world were treated to the most incredible West Yorkshire sunset. I have to say, as a west Yorkshire Wedding photographer, I was pretty proud of where I am from. The sunset was stunning!
