Photos by Jenna Woodward Photography
My love for Paul and my love for Leeds feels inextricable. I would love both of them separately, I am sure, but they are so tied together in my heart. Without Paul, I would never have even thought to move to this amazing city, and my life would be so different. I fell in love with Paul in Leeds; I fell for him first and the city second as it became a backdrop to everything we did together. Neither of us is from here, but the city suits us so well and I sometimes think we could never move from right here, this flat, this place. I know that we will, but I doubt it will be far. I'm too in love with Leeds. So it was super important to me that our wedding reflected both us and our city.
So, you can imagine that I am absolutely head over heels for these gorgeous photos that Jenna and Ewan took of us. Aren't they just dreamy? We started off at Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen, making the most of their picturesque, hipster roof terrace, which afforded endless nooks and crannies to snap away in, before wandering down Briggate (to some weird looks...) and through the Victoria Quarter. We couldn't have taken them anywhere other than Leeds city centre - and whilst it's lovely to have nice photos of the two of us, it's equally fantastic to have photos that make the city I love look so amazing. I don't know whether we'll live here forever, but Leeds has been such a big part of our story, and I'm so happy we have these photos to remember that.
