Congratulations Mr & Mrs Iggo

Congratulations to Ciara & Doug Iggo who were married at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Moortown, Leeds followed by a reception at Woodlands Hotel on Saturday the 21st March.

This was the first wedding we have covered where the bride’s side of the wedding were all Irish and the groom’s side were all Scottish. We were very much looking forward to what the day had in store and it didn’t disappoint!

The bridal preps were cool, clam and collected… Until the bride, Ciara, put on her beautiful wedding dress and the nerves started to set in. Bridesmaids admiring teeth, telling us off for chatting ¬†to the videographers over at Butterfly Films instead of working and one who really didn’t like having her photo taken were all part of the fun and games to start the day.

We made our way to the church where there was a huge amount of people, groom Doug, his best man and ushers all wearing traditional kilts… ¬†without underwear except one, the best man. We persuaded him to remove his underwear later on though.

Ciara arrived right on queue and emotions were high in the church. The service was fairly short but there were a couple of readings which were well received. Once the newlyweds had finished the formalities it was on to Woodlands Hotel for the reception.Immaculate Heart Of Mary Moortown

One thing you can be sure of is a few surprises during a wedding day and this was no exception… Leeds City Centre is a nightmare for drivers on a Saturday and with the inner ring road closed for repair, the typical 10 minute journey from church to venue was more like an hour…. unless you’re the bride and groom in a beautiful Beauford wedding car. It decided it didn’t like the traffic and to have a bit of a rest (read ‘breakdown’). Needless to say the still happy couple were a little later than everyone else but that didn’t stop the high spirits.

With everyone still joking about the journey back, we took the opportunity to get everyone outside for the group pics including one of the funniest ones we’ve ever taken. Naked men’s bottoms on show for the first time during a wedding reception.Woodlands Hotel Weddings

Once the formal speeches were out of the way it was time for the evening reception where the Woodlands Hotel marquee really comes into it’s own, especially late at night with the beautifully lit roof adding to the atmosphere during a first dance. By this time the place was full to capacity. All eyes on the lovely couple with the band playing in the background.

Congratulations to you both once again.

Photos to follow soon.
