A snowy wedding at the Hey Green Hotel, a small country house hotel nestling in the foothills of the Pennines at Marsden, just about as far west as you can get in West Yorkshire before going over the borders! Leigh and Sarah chose this neat little venue for their wedding some time last year when they first approached me to do their wedding photography, but little did they know there would be trouble ahead. Just as we met up for the pre-wedding shoot in January, they were informed the hotel had gone into liquidation! Although they were assured their wedding was safe, I think they were a little worried about the whole affair as they were told all weddings up to and including April 7th were safe then it was all over! Many brides have lost their deposits and are in trouble looking for new venues – imagine being told just a few weeks before your wedding that it was off and you had to find somewhere else! A salutary lesson for any couples reading this, make sure you are insured!

Anyway, Leigh and Sarah’s wedding did take place and it went off without a hitch and even the weather smiled on us with (for the most part), blue skies and sunshine and an amazing snowy rugged landscape as backdrop to the celebrations. The sun disappeared briefly during the photo shoot and we even got a few snow flurries but we did all the photography outdoors and I think we got some great images. Following the reception, we did a couples shoot for many of the guests, making use of the lovely conservatory as the backdrop before moving onto the grand staircase to finish with some shots of the bride and groom before heading into the disco for the first dance.
My first and, likely, only shoot at Hey Green as word on the street says a developer has bought it to turn it into his private residence! Can’t be bad. Here are a few images from the key moments of the day with lots more to go at.
