In 2016, Wedding Belle’s handed over the reins to new owners, Hannah and Dave Spink. In 2008 Hannah and Dave established Dave Spink Photography which, following its rapid expansion, now specialises in wedding photography, videography, photo booths and giant letter hire.  Hannah has also been successfully running Scarlet Poppy Bridal Boutique in Pudsey for many years and couldn’t be prouder to be the new face behind Wedding Belles with the assistance of Kelsey.
