St Paul's Church Shipley
The church was beautifully decorated with bunting, and flowers. Tables at the back had scones and clotted cream laid out with raspberry jam (homemade with raspberries from their allotment) for a cream tea after the ceremony.
As Emma arrived to her family church there were crowds of socially distanced friends positioned outside! After sending well wishes they all sat down on their picnic blankets to watch the ceremony as it was live streamed from inside the church. It was such a lovely atmosphere and shows that even when wedding days don’t go to plan, there is still so much space for love – even at a social distance!
Wedding Ceremony at St Paul's Church Shipley
The ceremony was beautiful, and Simon and Emma both knew their parts without a single prompt – saying their vows directly to one another without looking away for guidance. There was a special video message and even a pre-recorded group zoom choir session with Simon and Emma’s friends performing “A thousand years”.
Wedding photos, speeches and scones
We left the church for some physically distanced photos before coming back in for the cream tea and speeches. There were some wonderful heartfelt speeches, and everyone had a lovely time.
Bradford Golf Course Wedding Photos
After saying their goodbye’s Simon and Emma headed up to Bradford Golf Course (where they had planned to have their reception) for some photos of just the two of them. It is a lovely location, and although it was raining, it didn’t seem to dampen any spirits.
Congratulations Simon and Emma on embracing the situation and having such a wonderful wedding!
