What a beautiful day Shani & Barry had at Rudding Park Hotel!  Shani had chosen to decorate the chapel with giant white balloons, it looked looked amazing.  The Chapel, built in 1879, is delightful and made the perfect location for the ceremony, led by the Vicar of Calverley.

It was a very windy day, so after Shani & Barry danced out down the aisle we went indoors for the drinks reception.

If you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding or event at Rudding Park Hotel please get in touch.  I’m based locally, just 30 minutes from the venue.

Oliver & Helen held a Las Vegas themed wedding reception at The Leeds Club at Albion Place.  Their wedding planner Hazel Walshaw and wedding stylist Pamella Dunn created a beautiful shimmering black, silver and red colour scheme.  The Leeds Club’s white interior makes a lovely blank canvas for any chosen theme.  The main reception was held in the Leeds Room, with casino tables sited in the Club Room bar.

To add to the Las Vegas feel a huge “Vegas” sign was erected in the grand entrance hall. I didn’t expect it to be so big!  I used it as a photo backdrop for the evening as Oliver & Helen had asked me to do a photobooth style setup for guests.

Wedding Photography Woodlands Hotel Leeds – Julia & Winston marry at Woodlands

Wedding Photography Woodlands Hotel Leeds – wedding photographers YorkshireLeeds wedding photographers

Julia & Winston chose Woodlands Hotel for their wedding.  Woodlands is a beautiful boutique hotel on the outskirts of Leeds and one of Leeds most popular wedding venues.  It’s known for it’s huge marquee, which has recently been upgraded.  I think it’s now the best marquee in Yorkshire!

The fun started at Julia & Winston’s house where Julia, her parents and bridesmaids were getting ready.  Julia arrived by car to the hotel while Winston and his groomsmen got ready in the bridal suite.

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed mini fish & chips as a snack during the photographs.  In the evening we danced the night away with a live band – along with George, my dinosaur!   There was no space to run the photo booth due to the hog roast being served, so guests found George and the other photobooth props and took them on the dancefloor!  George turned out to be a real party animal, as you will see below!

Bramhope Puritan Chapel Photography

Bramhope Puritan Chapel Photography – Leeds wedding photographers – wedding photography Bramhope

I recently photographed Bramhope Puritan Chapel which is a quaint little church in the North Leeds village of Bramhope.  The Chapel is on the main road, tucked almost out of sight.  If you look to the right as you drive north past the entrance to Britannia Hotel you’ll see the Chapel.

The reason for my visit is that, as recommended photographer for Britannia Hotel Leeds Bradford, I was able to take the keys and spend a little time there on my own to create a series of photos to show how the Chapel looks today.  It was built in 1649 by Mr Robert Dyneley who owned Bramhope Hall.  The Hall is long gone, the Brtiannia Hotel stands on the site now.  There’s a gate from the hotel car park through to the chapel.

The Chapel was regularly used for worship until around 1881, when St Giles Church was built to accommodate the growing population of the village. The Puritan Chapel was Grade 1 listed when the UK register of listed buildings was created in the 1960’s.

A Chapel key is held at Britannia Hotel who have permission to use it for wedding blessings and photographs.  It’s a unique addition to wedding packages at the Britannia!

The key gives a clue to the age of the chapel – it’s large and heavy, suggesting something magical lies behind the old wooden door.  Once inside it seems quite dark until your eyes adjust to the light (and you find the light switches!)  The walls are plain white, decorated with ornate carved memorials.  At the rear of the chapel is the font, bearing a date of 1673.

The reclining lady in the top photo is a statue for the tomb of  Esther, wife of Christopher Smith.  The Smith’s purchased the estate from the Dyneley family in 1797.

Here’s a fascinating document hosted on the Bramhope & Carlton website that gives much more information about the chapel and it’s history. 

The Chapel is owned by Bramhope & Carlton Parish Council who hold several public open days a year.  See their website for further details.

If you’re interested in a wedding in Bramhope you can contact the Britannia Hotel for more details.  Their venue is registered for civil ceremonies, with the Puritan Chapel being available for blessings and/or photographs.  Church weddings in Bramhope are held at St Giles (C of E) and

Ollievision is recommended wedding photographer at The Britannia Hotel Leeds Bradford in Bramhope, Yorkshire.  This post is to enable couples to see the venue and how it can be laid out for weddings.  The hotel function suites have been refurbished recently so I took these photos to show what it looks like now.

If you’re considering the Britannia as your wedding venue please also read the other blog post about Bramhope Puritan Chapel, which is included in their packages if desired.

The main function suite has a large oblong room that can be divided in half to suit the size of the event.
