One of my very favourite weddings from this summer, here’s Hannah & Dave’s wedding day in all its glory!


I’d been looking forward to getting over to Halifax to photograph their wedding at The Arches @ Dean Clough Mills, a fantastic development of business spaces, restaurants and bars, with the Arches venue neatly tucked into a wonderfully light and airy space… perfect for a proper good knees up!


Starting out with Hannah and her family in the oddly named village of Triangle, the day began with preparations and the arrival of a superb split screen VW bus (from the lower class) to transport Hannah to Halifax.


We got straight to it, Hannah entered the Mill to a chorus of “God only knows” by the Beach Boys sung by all of her and Dave’s guests. The registrar failed to pronounce Hannah’s last name correctly at all while delivering their wedding vows, which resulted in much hilarity…


Hannah & Dave exited to a hail of natural confetti petals and started their reception with delicious Pimms & Lemonade. Dave & Hannah had brewed their own beer using Dave’s own microbrewery and gave each guest a bottle as one their favours, I did try their American IPA and can confirm that it was absolutely delicious!


The Arches and Dean Clough are an industrial setting, both inside and out. The buildings, spaces and shapes are striking and stark. To offer some contrast into Hannah & Daves’ images, we headed up and out of Halifax to catch the last of the day’s sunlight as it dropped over the town.


We slowly trundled back to the mill, with Hannah and Dave (who’d brought their pints of Magic Rock’s High Wire with them) reflecting on their day so far in the back of the car.


The band had truly warmed up by the time we arrived back and the dance floor was packed, setting the theme for the rest of the evening!


I can’t thank Hannah, Dave, their friends and family enough for making me feel truly part of their wedding. It was a momentous occasion from start to finish!
