Wold Top Brewery was the venue of choice for Amy & Harry’s wedding reception this weekend. A new venue for me though I have visited before, once being relatively recently for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Amy & Harry. Who would have expected such a beautiful day for their wedding. Ideal for the venue as it is located in the beautiful rolling Wolds countryside.

Amy & Harry live in Bridlington and chose Priory Church as the ceremony venue. Priory Church is a stunning, large, picturesque church. Ideal for capturing stunning photographs of a wedding ceremony. Father Mathew was very accommodating to my requirement to take discreet photographs. He conducted a lovely wedding ceremony for Amy & Harry to remember for years to come.
Wold Top Brewery is a great venue for an outdoors style of wedding and does not appear like a brewery with picturesque gardens and stunning views. Managed by Muddy Souls Events, Amy & Harry’s wedding was organised to the last detail and everything was perfect for them. I can highly recommend the venue and Muddy Souls
Amy & Harry are on honeymoon for a well deserved break in Lanzarote. I am sure they will have a fantastic time. In the meantime here are some highlights from their wedding day for you to enjoy.

Goldsborough Hall Wedding | Elise & Mitch | Wedding Photography Yorkshire

On Sunday I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Elise & Mitch at the stunning Goldsborough Hall, and was one of the most enjoyable weddings I have photographed. Despite the fact that I photograph some really lovely weddings with some great people, this was one of those occasions where, when I was on my way home at the end of the day, I realised how much I love being a wedding photographer. Everything was extremely well planned, timings were perfect and everything flowed well.  The weather for the most part was great, and as a result I captured some great photographs.

You may recall Elise & Mitch’s Harewood House Engagement Photoshoot at Harewood House a few weeks ago.  Again a great location where I captured some lovely images on a prefect summer’s day.  Elise and Mitch are a great couple, really easy to get on well with, very well organised, knowing what they want and appreciating quality.  The result was a wedding that was simply perfect and it was a privilege for me to be a part of it.

Goldsborough Hall has beautiful gardens, with a bark covered path through a woodland area which is simply stunning for wedding photographs.  We, of course, made use of the woodland which really suits my style of photography. I love photographing natural woodland, and to have a beautiful bride & handsome groom to photograph in such surroundings was idyllic.  The resulting photographs are intimate and romantic.

Elise & Mitch are now on honeymoon and I wish them the best time. They are great together and I look forward to creating their album in due course.  Below is a small selection of highlights from Elise & Mitch’s wedding day for you to enjoy.

Special Wedding Memories

A Wedding Day is a momentous moment for any couple as it is the beginning of their married life together. All the long months planning transforms into a wonderful day. The wedding photographer is there to preserve the important memories that will remain with you forever.

Here are 7 special memories to photograph:

  1. Bride’s hair & makeup

This pre-wedding photograph marks the time in a girl’s life where her childhood wedding dreams are coming true.

  1. Bride & her bridesmaids

A bride and her bridesmaids in full wedding dress is an amazing sight to behold. Consider the composition and where you want everyone to sit or stand.

  1. Groom & his groomsmen

This memory can be captured in a number of different ways. It all depends on what kind of groom you are. The top two ways are: 1) formal & composed, 2) comical & relaxed.

  1. Bride & Groom sealing marriage with a kiss

This is the best memory a couple can have- the moment where they seal their marriage with a kiss. This is one of the most photographed moments in a Wedding ceremony so capture yours!

  1. Bride & Groom at their venue

The wedding venue is a place of exceptional meaning for the newlyweds. Whether it is their family church or a stately home they’ve admired it is now a place of great significance. Be sure to mark the moment with a beautiful photograph.

  1. Bride & Groom with their parents

Seeing their children getting married is a proud day for any parent. This memory symbolises the moment where two families come together to witness the creation of a new one.

  1. Bride & Groom with all their guests

What would a wedding be without its guests? Friends and family make your day special. A fantastic way of recording this is to have the photograph taken from above with all the guests together.

Friday was a fantastic day as I photographed the wedding of Steph & James at St Mary’s RC Church in Rothwell, followed by their wedding reception at the stunning location of The Mansion, Leeds in Roundhay Park, Leeds.  The Mansion is managed by Dine Services who are excellent at organising weddings and have a lot of experience of doing so.  They manage several high class venues in Yorkshire, with The Mansion being one of them.  It is certainly one of the best venues in Leeds and always a pleasure to work at.

Steph & James organised a lovely day.  I had previously photographed their engagement shoot at Lotherton Hall a few weeks ago and was very much looking forward to photographing their wedding as a result.  Being a Friday, Roundhay Park was quieter than it would normally have been on a lovely spring day on a Saturday so I was able to capture some great photographs of the two of them as they took a stroll through Roundhay Park to explore some areas of the park new to me.  I like the opportunity to photograph something new and interesting and new location really test my creativity.  Using the light and good composition with limited time, I captured some great photographs which can be seen below.

Steph & James are currently on honeymoon and I wish them the best time.  They are a great couple and it was an absolute pleasure to photograph their wedding day.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their wedding day for you to enjoy.

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 had a lovely evening for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Steph & James at Lotherton Hall.  It has been well over 20 years since I have been to Lotherton Hall so it was interesting to visit, and great to meet Steph & James again.  We spent a very pleasant evening exploring the gardens and grounds of Lotherton Hall to capture some natural photographs of them enjoying the pleasant sunshine and taking it easy spending some time together.  I try to make time for couples to have some time to themselves on their wedding day exploring the grounds of their wedding venue and having some time to themselves, as although couples are together on their wedding day, they rarely get much time 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.

Steph & James are due to marry in just two weeks time so I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding day.  Here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot.

What a fantastic day and beautiful rural location for the wedding of Amy & James at Dockray, just North of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District.  They could not have asked for a better day for early April.  Lake Ullswater was like a millpond, extremely calm with little wind.  The church was a very quaint traditional church within walking distance of Dockray and an ideal location for my style of wedding photography as I very much enjoy rural weddings.  James is the brother of Laura whose wedding I photographed almost three years ago when she married Graham at Laura’s home church in Copmanthorpe before going on to Harewood House for a marquee reception.  It was great to see Laura & Graham again and to be a part of the wedding of Amy & James.

You may recall Amy & James had their pre-wedding photoshoot at Brimham Rocks a few weeks ago on a very misty and damp Saturday morning.  We had an enjoyable time, with some interesting and atmospheric photographs taken as a result.

Amy & James are currently on honeymoon and I look forward to hearing from them when they return.  In the meantime here is a selection of photographs from their wedding day for you to enjoy.
