Anna & Aneta – Their Wedding at Woodlands Hotel, Leeds

“So Last Friday saw me photograph my first official lock down wedding at Woodlands Hotel, Leeds, and it proved to me that weddings aren’t about the frock, or the party or the size of the do, what they are about is the joining forever of two people who are desperately in love and can’t wait a minute longer to belong to one another.”

Anna & Aneta chose a small intimate ceremony at Woodlands Hotel, Leeds to say their vows to one another with just three witnesses, myself and the registrars, the witnesses and myself had to wear face coverings and the registrars wore shields, but the couple were not expected to and ended their ceremony with the traditional kiss.
