Kaylie & Tom’s wedding in Provence – Chateau de Massillan

Despite being Provence and early Summer, the forecast for this one was not looking good for the evening, – the last thing you need for an outdoor ceremony and dinner on the terrace.
By 8pm it predicted thunderstorms, so not looking good…!!

Kaylie & Tom chose the gorgeous Chateau de Massillan near Orange in Provence for their wedding, a 2 day affair with picnic and BBQ on Day 01 followed by the actual wedding day on the 28th June.

The bride wore Johanna Hehir and the groom a Leonard Jay suit with the fabulous flowers by local florist Blandine.

The ceremony took place outdoors under the shade of the large plane trees in the chateau grounds where the picnic had taken place the previous day.
It was conducted by the couples good friend George (with accompaniment by the cicadas in the trees) and followed by a refreshing Prosecco and delicious canape reception.

The 4 course wedding breakfast was held in the open air internal courtyard of the chateau and that promised thunderstorm…?

Well it did come as predicted, dramatically with some lightning flashes during mains and a few drops during dessert, but it didn’t come down properly until everyone had moved inside for the dancing with band Beer Pressure.

Kaylie & Tom honeymooned in Provence & Paris followed by Miami & Belize later this year.

Kate & Stuart’s Devonshire Fell Wedding

Kate & Stuart chose the delightful The Devonshire Fell in the charming Yorkshire Dales village of Burnsall for their November wedding day.

Being November, the weather did what it usually does in this month and that is remained a decidedly darker shade of grey all day with patches of rain.

It didn’t stop them having a great day indoors though with a ceremony in the Dalzell room followed by drinks & canapes in the main area of the hotel.

Kate wore Charlotte Balbier from the The Wedding Dress Company in Corbridge and the groom a grey pinstripe suit.

Floristry was by friends Rhiannon & Lindsay with a wedding cake from Betty’s of Harrogate and an additional cheese tower from Moor & Farm.

Evening entertainment and music was supplied by Ben of Graham Bower DJ’s.

Alex & James’s Autumn Wedding Photography at Middleton Lodge

Autumn-Wedding-Photography_103

Alex & James’s Autumn wedding photography took place at one of our most regular and visited venues, the fabulous Middleton Lodge in North Yorkshire.

I had more than a little personal connection with this wedding in that the bride’s mother Susanne is our bookkeeper and I suggested they at least look at Middleton Lodge when considering their venue as it would suit their requirements perfectly. They took that advice and the results in highlight form are below!

Alex wore Justin Alexander from Miranda Marie¬†of Yarm and James and blue suit with makeup (Alex’s!) by Emma from Jo Leversuch.

Flowers were by Yvonne Dennis and cake by Rhian Crusher and band Jonny Ross with the couple honeymooning in West Coast USA.

The ceremony itself took place at St Michael & All Angel’s in the village of Middleton Tyas and was conducted by the Rev. David Lewis.

Veronica & Jim’s Scottish Wedding For Two

VTR115

I say Veronica & Jim’s Scottish Wedding For Two, but it ended up as Veronica & Jim’s Scottish Wedding For Four as V’s parent’s ‘crashed’ it.

In a good way, – they were welcome, but originally I’d been heading North for a wedding for 2 at this fabulous West Coast Scotland venue I have been to 5 or 6 times perviously.

Glenapp Castle in Ballantrae in Ayrshire is a superb 5* castle/hotel occupying a unique position on the side of a hill looking over to the conical island of Ailsa Craig (where the curling stones come from!) and the Isle of Arran.

The weather was a little against us as were the midges down by the lake and it was full on wet & windy by the time we hit the harbour, but nethertheless, Veronica & Jim had a great wedding day.

Highlights available to view below. Full Gallery here if you have the password…

Portrait: Carolyn & Dustin, Lot et Garonne, France

One month after my last visit to the delightful Chateau de Lisse in the Lot et Garonne region of South West France, I found myself back for my third wedding at the venue.

Being a British wedding photographer (albeit one with a base in France), I might have expected to have photographed a few more (Brits) but the score so far is 2 Australian and 1 Irish grooms, plus 1 Australian, 1 American and 1 Irish bride!

Anyway, here are 30 highlight pics from Carolyn (American) and Dustin’s (Australian) pre-wedding location photo-shoot around the grounds of CDL the day before their wedding.

Carolyn & Dustin’s full wedding day is available to view by clicking this link.

Below are the pictures from their pre-shoot and a Vimeo based slideshow production.
