I spent a very pleasant afternoon with Katherine & Euan for their Fountains Abbey pre-wedding photoshoot.  Fountains Abbey was relatively busy as it is the school holidays, so we explored the grounds to find some quieter areas in order to capture some lovely photographs of Katherine & Euan prior to their wedding in December.  It was nice for them to have a summers pre-wedding photoshoot with them having a contrasting winter wedding.  Despite the number of visitors to Fountains Abbey, neither Katherine or Euan were self conscious and were both extremely relaxed having their photograph taken in public.  They are very natural together and were very easy to work with and photograph.

The organisation of their wedding is well underway will little left to arrange.  It sounds like it will be a fantastic day and I very much look forward to it.  In the meantime you can see a nice selection of photographs from their pre-shoot below.

I had a great afternoon photographing the pre-wedding photoshoot of Rachel & Fernando at the stunning Fountains Abbey on Wednesday.  Fountains Abbey is a beautiful location for a photoshoot with so many areas for photography, ideal for wedding and engagement photoshoots. Rachel & Fernando were great together and very relaxed.  Being late on Wednesday afternoon the abbey was fairly quiet so we had full use of the grounds.  Although a little overcast for the most part, the lighting is excellent at Fountains Abbey.  The contrast of the stonework and the lush green of the trees, I can capture some timeless artistic and natural photographs.

Rachel & Fernando are to marry in July.  They are having a church ceremony followed by a wedding reception at Allerton Castle Weddings, another stunning location, great for photography.  I very much look forward to their wedding day and in the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their engagement photoshoot.

The first of two pre-wedding photoshoots today was the photoshoot of Beth & Greg in the very picturesque village of Kettlewell in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.  Although I have had a Skype call with Beth & Greg previously, this is the first time I have met them in person as they currently live in the US.  Beth is originally from Yorkshire and they chose to marry in the Yorkshire Dales as she visited the area on several occasions as a child.  Kettlewell is a lovely location for a photoshoot, though we were somewhat hampered by the weather which was very overcast and soon began to rain.  It was unfortunately as it would have been great to explore more of the area.

Beth & Greg marry on Friday so we were able to discuss the details of their wedding day.  They are a lovely relaxed couple and I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding on Friday.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from the pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.

Fountains Abbey, a fabulous National Trust location for a photoshoot and for the engagement shoot of Fozia & Robert who are to marry at Ettington Park Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon next week.  Despite the forecast showing no rain, simply overcast, the weather did not look good when we set out to explore the ground of the Cistercian abbey and the Georgian water garden.  We did however make the most of the stunning scenery and available light to capture some lovely intimate moments between Fozia & Robert.

Their wedding plans sound idyllic with them hoping to marry in the Bell Tower at Ettington Park Hotel, weather permitting.  I sincerely hope the weather is kind to them on their wedding day and I am very much looking forward to photographing their day.

In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.

We had a lovely morning for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Claire & Steve at Lotherton Hall.  I have only been to Lotherton Hall once for a pre-wedding photoshoot previously and before that it had been well over 20 years since I have been to Lotherton Hall so it was interesting to visit, and great to spend some time with Claire & Steve.  We spent a very pleasant time exploring the gardens and grounds of Lotherton Hall to capture some natural photographs of them enjoying the day and taking it easy spending some time together.  I encourage couples to have some time to themselves on their wedding day exploring the grounds of their wedding venue, as although couples are together on their wedding day, they rarely get much time just to themselves.  The wedding day also goes by so quickly, so for the couple to have a little time to themselves on their wedding day is often highly appreciated and allows me to capture some lovely intimate moments between them.

Claire & Steve are due to marry in May at Allerton Castle so I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding day.  Here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot.

This morning I met with Stephanie & Mike for their pre-wedding photoshoot at Roundhay Park, prior to their wedding at Goldsborough Hall on Saturday.  It was great to meet them as I have only previously had a Skype call with them as they currently reside in Hong Kong.  However as both are originally from the UK and Stephanie is from Leeds, the couple decided to marry in the UK and specifically at the beautiful Goldsborough Hall.  Today we had a reasonable day with the weather to capture some lovely photographs of Stephanie & Mike enjoying the surroundings of Roundhay Park.  We also took a stroll through the Monet Garden which was looking beautiful today.

I look forward to photographing Stephanie & Mike’s wedding on Saturday and in the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot today.

What an evening for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Amy & Harry at the stunning location of Wold Top Brewery and Muddy Soul Events.  Located close to Filey and Bridlington, Wold Top Brewery is a wedding venue for clients who appreciate stunning views and the great outdoors.  This evening was a particularly lovely evening for some beautiful photographs of Amy & Harry who are to celebrate their wedding at Wold Top Brewery in just over three weeks time.

The rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds, and the hill top location of Wold Top make it a particularly stunning venue.  With a variety of gardens, there are plenty of opportunities for photographs.  This was the first time I had met Amy & Harry, though we had spoken on the phone previously.  It was therefore great to meet them and to hear about their plans for their wedding day.  It certainly helps to meet a couple prior to their wedding so that on their day we know each other a little, and having the pre-shoot helps them be more relaxed on their wedding day.  I highly recommend a pre-wedding photoshoot to all my clients, at a venue of their choice, and I always find it interesting to photograph at a location I have not photographed before.

I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding.  In the meantime below is a selection of photographs from their engagement shoot.

Who would have thought the day on Friday would have been such a lovely sunny day.  The weather forecast was to be fine but cloudy, so it was with some amazing luck that Sarah & Christopher had a warm clear day for their pre-wedding photoshoot in the stunning surroundings of Castle Howard.  It is a fabulous location for either an engagement shoot or a wedding, and today was particularly great.  Although it appeared initially to be busy with school trips and a television crew filming a new television series, we were fortunate enough to find space on our own to capture some beautiful stunning photographs of the two of them.  Normally a couple are initially nervous about having their photograph taken on their pre-wedding photoshoot, but neither Sarah nor Christopher seemed to be so. They naturally relaxed into the session and were great together.  The result is some lovely photographs in a very photogenic setting where the light was just lovely to work with.

Sarah & Christopher marry in a couple of months time at Waterton Park and I am thoroughly looking forward to photographing their wedding.  In the meantime here is a selection of photographs from their engagement shoot for you to enjoy.

We could not have asked for a better day for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Elise & Mitchell at Harewood House yesterday.  It was a fantastic day with beautiful blue skies and very warm, and with children being on half term from school, it was fairly busy.  Despite this we explored areas of the gardens and lakeside to find some quieter areas to capture some lovely photographs of the couple.  Elise & Mitchell are to marry later in the year at the stunning Goldsborough Hall and I very much look forward to photographing their wedding day.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their pre-shoot for you to enjoy.
