This evening I had the pleasure of photographing Lucie & John during their pre-wedding photoshoot in Museum Gardens in York.  It was a particularly calm evening, ideal for photography, and very pleasant for both Lucie & John to explore the grounds of Museum Gardens whilst I stayed in the background for the most part to capture some lovely photographs of the two of them enjoying each others company.

As a York Wedding Photographer I personally feel Museum Gardens offers a great variety of locations to choose from in photographing either an engagement shoot or for wedding photography.  If the gardens are particularly busy there are quiet areas so as to not intrude on others enjoying the gardens, as well as different styles of location from well manicured formal gardens to secluded areas, to lovely stone brickwork, to more rugged areas. The different areas of the gardens help in generating varying styles of photography to suit all tastes.

As you will see from the photographs below, some areas are more suited to black and white, while other areas are very colourful.  I personally feel that if a photograph has nice complimentary colours, why change it.  Having said that certain photographs work well in black and white as black and white is somewhat timeless in its style.  It gives a different feel to a photograph, and I personally like black and white photography.  Some examples of which are below.

Lucie & John were great to work with and photograph.  They were relaxed throughout the photoshoot, and I am sure they will have benefited from the session to help them feel at ease on their wedding day. They are to marry in the next few weeks and I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their engagement shoot for you to enjoy.

It was with pleasure that I photographed the lovely wedding of Aimee & Ben yesterday for their church and marquee wedding in Leeds.  Aimee & Ben are a great couple and their wedding day was very relaxed with close family and friends in attendance.  Aimee looked stunning in her wedding dress with what looked to be a 40’s style to the design, and Ben looked very dapper in his waistcoat and suit.  Their church was a very picturesque quaint church on the outskirts of Leeds with a marquee in the garden of Ben’s parents house.

We could not have expected the weather to be any better when looking at the weather forecast earlier in the week, as it was not due to be a particularly good weekend, and compared with their Pre-Wedding Photoshoot a few weeks ago which was extremely wet, their wedding day was a very pleasant day.

Aimee & Ben go on honeymoon on Tuesday and I am sure they will have a fabulous time.  I look forward to hearing about it when they return and creating their wedding album for them in due course.  In the meantime here are some highlights from their wedding day for you to enjoy.

It was my absolute pleasure to be introduced to Kurt, the first son of Kath & Adam whose wedding I photographed a couple of years ago, and whose christening I photographed on Sunday.  It was lovely to be asked to do so.  Kath & Adam are a lovely couple with great family and friends so it was special to celebrate their day with them.

Kurt is a lovely boy, he was very calm, relaxed and took everything in his stride during the day.  He did not get upset and and was very curious about everything going on around him.  He was really observant and inquisitive about having his photograph taken.  Even when he was woken from his afternoon nap to have a photograph taken of the cake cutting, he was most placid and again curious.  It was an absolute joy and thoroughly enjoyable day.  The result was a lovely set of photographs to remember the day by, a selection of which are below.

What a stunning location for the wedding of Serena & Henry, the beautiful Carleton Park near Skipton, and what a lovely couple.  Considering I met Serena & Henry for the first time on Tuesday, after her father initially met with me and booked my service for the couples special day, we got on very well and it was a joy to spend their wedding day with them. It was such a shame the weather couldn’t have been better for them as it rained nearly all day only breaking at 7.50 pm for a short spell.  It was however fairly dark at that time but we made the best of it taking some photographs in the garden.  Despite the weather everybody had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Serena & Henry live in Monte Carlo now though Serena grew up in Carleton Park where her father lives.  They are currently on honeymoon and as they do not come back to the UK too often I may not necessarily see them again in preparing their wedding album. I do however wish them a fantastic honeymoon and all the best for their married life together.  In the meantime here are some highlights from their wedding day.

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.

It was great to meet up with Aimee & Ben tonight for their pre-wedding photoshoot.  It was ironic that despite the lovely weather recently it was raining for their photoshoot.  We did however take some photographs outside but when the rain got a little heavy we withdrew to the house to select suitable locations for some natural photographs.  It also gave us an opportunity to discuss ideas for their wedding day so they get the most out of their day.

Their wedding is to take place at their local church with a marquee reception in Ben’s parents garden.  A beautiful garden that is currently looking its absolute best and I am sure it will do for their wedding in four weeks time.  They are a lovely couple and I am thoroughly looking forward to their wedding.  In the meantime here are a few highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot.  As you can see a plain white umbrella can really be used to create some lovely photographs, even on a very wet summer’s evening.

This weekend saw me photograph the wedding of Rachel & Fernando at St Mary’s Church in Horsforth and Allerton Castle.  You may recall their Fountains Abbey Pre-Wedding Photoshoot a couple of months ago.  A fantastic wedding, well organised and calm during the bridal preparations, which continued throughout their wedding day.  Allerton Castle, as always, was superbly presented and a fabulous location for a wedding.  It is very unique and photogenic and I always thoroughly enjoy working there.  Despite a poor weather forecast, the weather was predominantly dry, with only a few light spots of rain now and again.

With Fernando’s family being Mexican there were a few language barriers to overcome as some of the Mexican guests did not speak any English, and the English guests did not speak Mexican.  Despite that everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable day.  The result is a great selection of photographs, some of which can be seen below which highlights the couples wedding day.

Friday I had the pleasure of working in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales for the wedding of Beth & Greg.  What a great couple; lovely to work with, very relaxed and well organised, and a thoroughly enjoyable wedding day.  The weather could have been a little kinder to them, though they were really very fortunate as the weather forecast for the day was to be wet all day, and apart from a heavy downpour part way through their drinks reception and meal, we were able to take some lovely photographs outside later in the day.

It was a pleasure to work at The Red Lion Hotel, Burnsall again.  Set in the very picturesque location of Burnsall, just by the magnificent stone bridge and village green, it is a great location for photography.  The wedding breakfast was then at Kettlewell Village Hall in the centre of another very picturesque Yorkshire Dales village.

Beth & Greg both live in the US, though Yorkshire is Beth’s home county.  Having visited Kettlewell on several occasions as a child, it seemed the perfect location for their wedding day.

Beth & Greg are to honeymoon in Italy before returning to the US, and I wish them a lovely time.  Please find below a selection of highlights from their wedding day.

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.
