The beautiful wedding of Laura & Adam Garvey, two college sweethearts, couldn’t have been at a better place than the exceptional Old Golf House hotel. From the moment we arrived about two hours before the ceremony with Adele, my second shooter, Laura’s room was already a hive of activity.
Everything was running like clockwork and after a few last minute touches, the girls were good and ready to go. On the other hand, Adam Garvey was already arriving accompanied by his family and groomsmen.
The exciting thing about such timely arrivals especially to us as photographers is the fact that we have plenty of time to spare and we can get excellent shots before the day’s ceremony kicks off.
The Wedding Setting
Set in 3 acres of beautiful gardens, the Old Golf House Hotel formed an ideal setting for the wedding. Both in terms of elegance and accessibility, the hotel scored a 10/10. It is just 30 minutes from both Leeds and Manchester which made it easier for guests coming from either end.
At the season of the year in which Laura & Adam’s wedding took place snowflakes and pinecones were the wedding motifs. The winter was at its peak and their wedding colors reflected the season. Right from their décor to their dressing, you could almost feel their taste of color.
The choice of silver and white complete with crystal accents helped to add some serious glamour to their wedding. As a matter of fact, we found it much easier to get the best shots because almost every angle gave us the perfect perspective.
The winter wedding flowers: calla lilies, red roses, and amaryllis were the flowers of the day. The flower stems were wrapped in ribbon embellished with crystals to add sparkle to the bouquet.
After the guests were ushered in and assumed their seats, the ceremony begun. Laura looked stunning surrounded by her bridesmaid. The ceremony was lovely and the emotional readings from the guests made such a sensational impact.
One of the moments we couldn’t miss was when the bride accompanied by her father was walking down the aisle-we took a number of shots that showed the sincerity of emotions between the father and the daughter as well as the bride and the groom.

The newlyweds were so relaxed and we had such an exciting time, but we couldn’t stay out for long because the rain showers were about to fall. During the meal time, we took a number of shots capturing the wine celebrations. We left shortly after the first dance.
Our sincere gratitude go to the Old Golf House for making Laura & Adam’s wedding such a perfect moment that will forever be etched in their minds.
