Firehorse Copper II 660

I knew when I met you an adventure was going to happen



Firehorse Photography are a Harrogate, North Yorkshire based specialist 'multi-media' wedding photographers with 15 years experience and have photographed & filmed over 500 wedding days.

Though Yorkshire based, we work all over the UK from country houses in England to marquees in Wales to castles in Scotland and further afield with weddings to date  covered in;

Ireland, France, Italy, Greece, USA, Mexico, China, Australia & New Zealand.

Our style & approach can best be described as a low-key, minimally invasive mainly documentary (story-telling) one but with an option to capture a few essential group/family pictures and of course, an exclusive bride & groom session.

Julie Lynn Whitten:  Wife – Mother – Film-maker

Distinctive, individual, refined…and we don’t do mediocre or dull!

Piglet sidled up to Pooh. “Pooh?” he whispered. “Yes Piglet?”
“Nothing,” said Piglet taking Pooh’s hand, “I just wanted to be sure of you.”

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”

Wedding Stories

Browse various recent wedding stories below including a general showcase gallery featuring our 'best of',
plus a few recent weddings, some filmed productions and examples of our books & albums.


“The moment we cry in a film is not when things are sad but when
they turn out to be more beautiful than we expected them to be”

Not every couple wants a full on wedding video, so we offer the choice of; equal filming to photography or primarily photography with a filmed element or no filming at all.

In terms of the end result, the productions we can offer are as follows:

A highlights slideshow option combining photography with music, – the most simple of options.

A Firehorse Photo-Film which is as above, but includes an audio overlay recorded from the day.

A Firehorse Micro-Film which is more like a ‘highlights’ production, but we prefer the term ‘short film’.

We also offer the option for a second ‘uncut’ (ie, full) ceremony & speeches filmed coverage.

So, they went off together. But wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way,
in that enchanted place on the top of the Forest, a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.


"A book is a dream that you hold in your hand"

We believe that a physical print is still (and always will be), the ultimate ‘solution’ to presenting & preserving your wedding photography.

There are many options today in regard to looking at pictures including computers, tablets and smart phones, but technology changes and memories fade.

A print is forever. A book or album will last beyond a lifetime.

A bespoke book or album created with a craftsman’s love will become a cherished family heirloom for yourselves and the generations to come.

The finest of these come from Queensberry of New Zealand, – our book & album partner for over 12 years.

The only true way to appreciate one of these is to come into the studio and view & handle one.
