My first wedding of 2023 was at The Woodman Inn with the gorgeous Katie and Chris. Despite having lived in Huddersfield for nearly 12 years, it was my first time at this stunning venue, and it didn't disappoint.
Katie and Chris made full use of the Woodman Inn's fabulous adjoining accommodation whilst they got ready surrounded by friends and family. It was then a short stroll along the idyllic country road to the gorgeous venue itself, where the happy couple tied the knot in the presence of their loved ones - including their two dogs!
The drinks reception took place in the Garden Room, a gorgeous barn-style building with exposed beams and it's very own bar. Following riotous group photos, I snuck off with the bride and groom to make full use of the beautiful countryside location for their couples' portraits.
