The couple, Louise and Martin, had two Weddings, one on each side of the globe so that all of their family could be with them on their special day. The first celebration was in the sunny climates of Sydney and the second deep in the snow of Yorkshire.

The Photographer
Luke Holroyd always had a love of photography, and when he was a child he would run around and snap anything and everything with an old film camera. Now as a professional photographer, he prides himself on being able to foster genuine relationships with all the lovely people his camera captures.

“There is nothing more rewarding in this job than seeing the Brides smile the first time she sees her wedding images. I can honestly say that nearly every wedding I capture I gain genuine friendships with the Bride and Groom” says Luke.

 “I love capturing weddings, I’ve juggled part time jobs along with assisting other wedding photographers to get to where I am now and I honestly wouldn’t change a thing!”

“The difference with this wedding was I met Louise & Martin only the week before their English Wedding date, but this really wasn’t an issue, we discussed our ideas, the plan of action for the day and everything was perfect.”

“I couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple to capture for my last wedding of 2014!”

Images of the Yorkshire Wedding were captured By Luke Holroyd Photography.


The Bride: Louise

Mrs P and P: How did you meet?
L: We met in Thailand in June 2005, I was on holiday and Martin was travelling through on his way from Sydney to London for work. We got engaged at home in Sydney on 21st December 2013!

Mrs P and P: Tell us about your wedding planning journey?
L: We quickly agreed that we’d get married in Sydney with a celebration in the UK with my family and friends. Our Sydney wedding was 1st November 2014 and our Yorkshire wedding was 30th December 2014.

Martin’s father is Armenian, originally from Jerusalem, and Martin has always been keen to honour his father’s roots by being married in the Armenian Orthodox Church in Sydney.

It was quite an experience, one that will be remembered for a long time. We then found a quaint sailing club to hire in Northern Sydney and worked with a local catering company to plan the day.

To add atmosphere we hired a local live band, Slide McBride, and decorated the venue with flowers from Sydney’s flower market and DIY buntings made by friends. Our theme was pastel colours and we complemented decorations with stationery designed by us using a graphic design app called MAKR.

We followed through the theme of the pastel colours to our UK winter reception at Cleckheaton Golf Club, which was close to where I spent my childhood, by using the same bunting and similar flowers for decoration.

Before the celebrations began our immediate families and the bridal party enjoyed a ride in a VW camper, another similarity from our Sydney wedding where the old family camper was dressed up as a photo booth and sweet station.

The UK camper drove us to the lovely Oakwell Hall where I spent so much of my childhood playing around! It was so lovely to be back there and even better that there was a frost on the ground.

Mrs P and P: What was the best bit of your day?
L: On both days the best bit was walking in and seeing everyone who had come to celebrate our happiness and have fun. We also had a real aisle in the church in Sydney whereas in Yorkshire the aisle was made and so lovely to walk through!

Mrs P and P: What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
L: We had two big happy days that we will remember for all of our lives but we really did need a honeymoon after all of it. Make sure to book that in!
