Phew! Talk about a hot and humid day for a wedding! I think we were all feeling the heat by the time everyone went in for the wedding breakfast but I think we all enjoyed the day and had some great photo opportunities. Sue and Paul were married just across the road from the Holmfield Arms at St James’ Church, Thornes and what a superb place for some photographs! My intial thoughts were to use Thornes Park for the main bride and groom images but with such a verdant location at the church, it made sense to do a quick shoot there before moving up to the Holmfield Arms. After shooting the formals up at Holmfield, we had a quick sortie into Thornes Park with the bride and groom just prior to the wedding breakfast and afterwards, we had a short session shooting in the hotel itself just to get some boutique style images. Sue is very much into the Gothic scene but toned everything down for the wedding and, despite hinting she may be doing the first dance to the metalcore sounds of Avenged Sevenfold, they went for a more smoochy song! However, you all know my penchant for all things Gothic, so I suspect I will be getting Sue into the studio after the honeymoon in her boned corsets and knee-length Doc Martins for an out ‘n’ out Goth style shoot. Watch this space!
