Ampleforth College Pre-Wedding Photoshoot, Maria and Craig, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

I had the very great pleasure of meeting with Maria and Craig for the pre-wedding photoshoot at Ampleforth Abbey and College on Friday.  It was lovely to see them again and to meet their daughter, and spend some time with then in the beautiful surroundings of Ampleforth.  Ampleforth is an ideal location for a pre-wedding photoshoot, with picturesque views and scenery, allowing a couple time to relax and enjoy some quality time together.  The pre-wedding photoshoot is similar to the time I have with a couple on their wedding day to capture just the two of them together.  There is more time than on their wedding day, but it allows them time to relax and get used to having their photograph taken.  I can also offer advice on what looks natural so that on their wedding day they are much more relaxed having their photograph taken, and need me to give them less direction so they can concentrate on enjoying their wedding day.  Maria and Craig are great together and needed very little guidance.  As a result I captured some lovely moments between the two of them.

I very much look forward to photographing their wedding day in a few weeks time and in the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.

Sophie and Robert, Goldsborough Hall Wedding, Exclusive Wedding Photography

Sophie and Robert, Goldsborough Hall Wedding, Exclusive Wedding Photography

I had the pleasure this Saturday of photographing the wedding of Sophie and Robert at the beautiful location of St Mary’s Church and Goldsborough Hall.  One of my favourite wedding venues is the picturesque Goldsborough Hall and was the ideal wedding location for Sophie & Robert.  Sophie and Robert first met at Ampleforth College where they were both students, and you may recall they chose Ampleforth as the location for their pre-wedding photoshoot.  I have worked at Ampleforth on may occasions.  Being set in a stunning valley and due to the couple’s history with Ampleforth it was a fitting location for their pre-shoot.

Sophie and Robert are a very well suited and lovely couple.  Everything about their wedding day was well planned, relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable.  From the church ceremony which Robert’s grandfather conducted, to the lovely weather, which was out of their control, the day flowed perfectly.

It was nice to see Deborah from Love Hair and Beauty in Ripon, whom I have worked with on many occasions, and who did all the hair and make-up for the bridal party.  It was also nice to know the stunning wedding cake was supplied by the awesome Blossom Tree Cake Company.  The floral bouquets and table decorations were created by Beamsley Blooms of Skipton which, as you will see from the photographs, were truly lovely.  The Event Music Company provided the evening entertainment with their Little Big Band.

I wish Sophie and Robert all the best for their married lives together.  It was an absolute pleasure to photograph their day for them and to get to know them.  Here is a selection of highlights from their wedding day for you to enjoy.

Jessica & Nick, Burn Hall Wedding, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

This weekend I had the great pleasure in photographing the wedding of Jessica and Nick at Holy Trinity Church in Heworth followed by their reception at Burn Hall.  Jess and Nick could not have asked for a better day as it was glorious sunshine all day.  I photographed a wedding a few years ago at Holy Trinity Church and it was nice to photograph a wedding at the same church again.  It is quite light and photogenic inside the church and so I captured some lovely shots during the ceremony.  I then went with Jess and Nick into the centre of York, whilst the guests made their way to Burn Hall, to take some photographs of the two of them.  We chose a particularly quiet area of York to give the couple the opportunity to have some time together whilst I stayed in the background to capture some lovely moments between the two of them.  With both Jess and Nick being from York, it was nice to capture The Minster in the background, an iconic York landmark.

Burn Hall offered a relaxed and well planned wedding reception so there was plenty of opportunity for people to mingle, and the opportunity to easily organise the formal group photographs.  Also I could not write without mentioning Ethan, Jess and Nick’s son, who was a little treasure throughout the day.  He has quite a cheeky character, and the family are obviously very close.  I captured some lovely shots of him, a few of which are below.

I wish Jess and Nick all the best in their married lives together and here is a selection of highlights for you to enjoy.

Sophie & Robert, Ampleforth Abbey Pre-Wedding Photoshoot, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with Sophie and Robert for their pre-wedding photoshoot at Ampleforth Abbey and College.  Ampleforth College was where Sophie and Robert first met when they attended as students, and so it was quite a nostalgic trip for them to return for their pre-wedding photoshoot.  The valley in which Ampleforth Abbey is located is beautiful and I have had the pleasure on many occasions of being able to experience what the valley is like throughout the different seasons of the year.  Unfortunately, today was a little overcast, but that did not matter too much.  We even had the opportunity to go across the valley to the lake which is a lovely quiet spot, ideal for walking and photography.

Sophie and Robert are due to marry in a couple of weeks time.  They are to marry at St Mary’s Church in Goldsborough followed by their wedding reception at the stunning location of Goldsborough Hall.  Goldsborough Hall is one of my favourite locations for a wedding and I very much look forward to photographing their wedding.  As a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer, Goldsborough is extremely photogenic and offers the perfect backdrop to any discerning couple choosing to have their wedding at the hall.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from Sophie and Robert’s pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.

Katherine & Robert, Goldsborough Hall Wedding, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

I had the very great pleasure of photographing the wedding of Katherine and Robert at St Chad’s Church followed by their reception at the stunning Goldsborough Hall yesterday.  Katherine had chosen a very elegant wedding dress with a long veil, and looked radiant, while Robert togged out in navy suit with cream tie to match his cream coloured button hole looked very dapper.  In fact the whole wedding was very stylish from the white Rolls Royce wedding car to the floral bouquets and stylish elegant wedding cake.  All were fitting for the venues of choice, and the weather stayed kind for them to make the most of the stunning gardens of Goldsborough Hall.

You may recall a few weeks ago I posted some photographs from Katherine and Robert’s pre-wedding photoshoot at Fountains Abbey.  This was the ideal time to get to know the couple a little better and for them to get to know how I as a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer work on their wedding day.  When a person is somewhat reserved in nature, as Katherine is, you can be a little apprehensive about being photographed, which does not help if you are slightly nervous on your wedding day.  It was therefore lovely to see that Katherine was very relaxed and fully able to enjoy her wedding day and I was able to capture some lovely natural photographs as a result.

Katherine and Robert head off to Scotland today for the honeymoon and I wish them all the very best for their time away.  I look forward to catching up with them when they return.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their wedding day for you to enjoy.

Ulyana and Daniel, Allerton Castle Wedding, Exclusive Wedding Photographer

Ulyana and Daniel, Allerton Castle Wedding, Exclusive Wedding Photographer

I had the very great pleasure in photographing the wedding of Ulyana and Daniel yesterday at the absolutely amazing venue of Allerton Castle.  One of my favourite locations for a wedding, and one of the first venues I ever photographed a wedding at.  Allerton Castle has been lovingly restored over the past few years by Dr Rolph and his team, and it is to the highest of standards.  It is therefore no wonder that this venue attracts some of the loveliest weddings, and Ulyana and Daniel’s was no exception.

Ulyana and Daniel are a lovely couple who I had the pleasure of photographing for their pre-wedding photoshoot at Bolton Abbey back in March.  On that day it was overcast and damp, which if we had taken any notice of the weather forecast would have been the same yesterday.  Amazingly, the weather could not have been better when we needed it to be, only turning wet in the evening.

With Ulyana’s family being from Russia, there was a Russian element to the wedding with quite a number of speeches by friends and family.  It was really lovely to experience some of the Russian traditions, and one of the best speeches was given by Ulyana’s younger brother who gave a very moving and heartfelt speech.  Vodka also featured as part of the wedding day, though all in good taste.

Ulyana and Daniel have planned a trip to Bali for their honeymoon which sounds absolutely amazing.  I wish them a great time and look forward to hearing about it.  In the meantime here is a selection of photographs from their wedding day.

Megan and James, Grays Court Wedding, York Wedding Photographer

What a fantastic day for the marriage of Megan and James with their wedding ceremony at St Stephen’s Church in Acomb and wedding reception at Gray’s Court.  It was one of those weeks of checking the weather forecast and still being unsure as to what the day was going to be like.  The day before the weather looked grim and the morning of the wedding lived up to the forecast with very wet weather.  However by the time Megan travelled to the church, the rain had stopped, the sun came out, and pretty much all afternoon was spent basking in sunshine, just like it had been ordered.  I felt so pleased for Megan and James that they had great weather, and everyone made the most of it spending the time during the reception outside.  Megan and James had the opportunity to have some time to themselves taking a slow stroll in Minster Gardens where I had the opportunity to capture some lovely natural photographs of the two of them spending time together, taking it all in.  A wedding day passes so quickly that having that time to spend some time together allows a couple the opportunity to really take in the day.

Megan and James are a lovely couple.  I photographed them during their pre-wedding photoshoot at Castle Howard a few months ago, where I got to know them a little better, and I can truly say they are meant for each other.  They are so natural and relaxed in each others company, and not only were they able to make the most of the pre-wedding photoshoot, they were completely relaxed at being photographed by a York Wedding Photographer on their wedding day.

They are currently in Italy on their honeymoon and I can imagine they are having an absolutely fabulous time.  I look forward to hearing about it when they return.  In the meantime here is a selection of photographs from their wedding day for you to enjoy.

Jessica & Nick, Dalby Forest Pre-Wedding Photoshoot, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Dalby Forest was the location of choice for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Jessica and Nick on Friday and what a lovely location for a photoshoot.  Dalby Forest is well known to Nick being a keen mountain biker, and the facilities available at Dalby Forest are excellent for families, walkers and cyclists.  I have known Jessica for a few years and it was great to spend some time with Jessica and Nick on a very pleasant afternoon in a stunning location.  Dalby Forest is the ideal setting for the natural style of photography I like to capture especially on a nice day, and I think that shows in the photographs.  Although we did walk quite some way, we found some interesting locations to try something a little different to the norm.

Jessica and Nick are due to marry in a few weeks at Burn Hall and I very much look forward to photographing their wedding.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.

Holly and Richard, The Old Swan Hotel Wedding, Harrogate Wedding Photographer

Holly and Richard, The Old Swan Hotel Wedding, Harrogate Wedding Photographer

I had fabulous day on Friday photographing the wedding of Holly and Richard at St Robert’s Church and The Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate.  Holly and her four bridesmaids had quite a relaxing morning preparing for the wedding at Holly’s parents house, before travelling to the church in Harrogate.  Holly and her father travelled in his stunning TVR Griffith making quite an entrance.

The interior of the church was stunning and light and very conducive to photography.  With a balcony at the rear of the church I was able to get some height to take an impressive photograph of Holly and her father walking down the aisle as they entered the church and Richard seeing Holly for the first time.  Although not the family’s normal church or worship, which is currently undergoing renovation, St Robert’s Church was an excellent choice for an alternative location, being only five minutes away from the reception.

Following the ceremony photographs of the couple were taken in the valley gardens, where the weather held off to capture some lovely intimate moments.  It gave the couple 20 minutes or so to take time to take it all in, and to catch up with each other on what each other had been doing in the morning.  I think this time is valuable, and a great way to combine the couple having this time, and for me to capture some discrete, unobtrusive photographs of them together.  You may recall Holly and Richard’s pre-wedding photoshoot in Knaresborough which gave the couple a taster of how I work, and gave us the opportunity to get to know each other a little better so that on their wedding day the couple are more relaxed with having their photograph taken.

The Old Swan Hotel has some impressive period art deco architecture and caters well for a wedding day.  Needless to say everyone had a fantastic time and the photographs certainly capture that.  It was also a pleasure to meet with the bride’s mother again as I have known Shirley for quite a number of years, but it has been a little while since we last met.

I wish Holly and Richard a fantastic time on their honeymoon and I look forward to creating their wedding album design in due course.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their wedding day for you to enjoy.
