Laura & Phillip’s Swinton Park Wedding (Part 01)

Umm, cloud. It makes for great pictures because the light is so even, but it’s not what most couples want for their wedding day. Nethertheless, despite being promised sunshine for Laura & Phillip’s Swinton Park Wedding, it looks like Summer is over…or at least suspended for now. Laura wore a dress from Amelia Elliott Bridal of Horsforth Leeds with bridesmaids and ties in turquoise. The gorgeous flowers were by Susie Hart...

Laura & Phillip’s Swinton Park Wedding (Part 02)

Following on from Part 01 of Laura & Phillip’s Swinton Park wedding is this, Part 02. During the drinks reception, everyone shifted up to the bird or prey centre to be wowed and dazzled by ‘Arry the hawk and an Eagle Owl, but the stars of the show were the baby owls or owlets as I think they are properly called, – white, fluffy and very cute. After a brief wander with the B&G up to wonderfully named Coffin Lake, the...

Sophie & Ollie’s West Yorkshire Marquee Wedding, Part 01

Last week was a busy week. The busiest week of the year for weddings with 3, this being the final one.

Sophie & Ollie’s wedding came about as a result of a wedding I photographed last year for Louise &...

Swinton Park Summer Wedding: Nadia & Eric (Part 01)

Two of the greatest Swinton Park weddings that I have photographed to date have been on Thursdays with this, Nadia & Eric’s wedding day being the second of these. The sun shone all day which at a Swinton Park Summer wedding is exactly what you’d want and it added real vibrancy to this most colourful of weddings. The wedding itself was Muslim culture (Nadia’s family) meets Chinese culture (Eric’s family) in a...

Swinton Park Summer Wedding: Nadia & Eric (Part 02)

Following on from Part 01, is the second of these 2 posts showcasing the highlights from Nadia & Eric’s Swinton Park Summer wedding.

Papakata Marquee Wedding: Sophia & Christopher Part 01

If you have reached this page via the Journal link, you will have been informed that the sun shone. The temperature gauge on my car was rising by half a degree every 5 minutes on the fairly brief drive to the other side of Thirsk and Baldersby St James for the Papakata marquee wedding of Sophia & Christopher. It topped out at 28 degrees C by lunchtime so probably climbed higher but never actually felt too hot. The first thing though was...

The Devonshire Arms, Wenisa & Simon, Part 01

Part 01 of Wenisa & Simon’s wedding at The Devonshire Arms was fairly typical of a wedding day; a couple get ready separately, followed by a ceremony, followed by some form of drinks reception, followed by a meal followed by a hike…a 9 mile hike. But I’m getting ahead of myself, – ‘The Hike’ will have to wait until Part 02 of this post as there are too many pictures I simply couldn’t leave out. The...

Bolton Abbey Wedding, Wenisa & Simon, Part 02

Following on from Part 01 of Wenisa & Simon’s Bolton Abbey wedding, ‘The Hike’. So a 9 mile hike from The Devonshire Arms up past Bolton Abbey along the River Wharfe to the area known as ‘The Strid’ and around in a loop back to The Dev. Everyone did get changed into shorts and specially printed t-shirts for the jaunt, all that is except me who went on it slightly better dressed and at twice the speed as...
