What a difference a day makes! The weather was so awful on Friday, with a continuous heavy downpour, that I decided to head off to Woolley Hall to scout some internal spots for Saturday’s wedding fearing the worst. During the expedition I bumped into the bride and groom, Louise and Andrew, who were there doing last minute preperations and we held a group cursing of the British weather. However, our grumblings must have been overheard by someone because the rain front moved out and gave way to bright overcast in the morning to full sun in the afternoon!
Woolley Hall is, in my opinion, probably the best venue in Wakefield for a wedding. The hall is so imposing and the formal gardens were immaculate as always and provided a superb setting for the drinks and canapes as well as the wedding photography. It was packed to the gunnels and standing room only in the music room for the ceremony but nobody minded and it was a great atmosphere throughout the service and then out into the grounds for a cooling off and some of that summer sun and the photographs!
