Cynth & Rich xxx

It was a busy weekend with Helen & Ed’s wedding on the Saturday followed by this, Cynthia & Richard’s Castle Howard wedding photography…plus we were filming this one also.

Cynthia wore a dress made of hundreds of tiny flowers by Oscar de la Renta and the groom traditional tails with the bridesmaids in purple.

The car was courtesy of Superior Motor Cars and the guests traveled from church in Helmsley to Castle Howard in a pair of red London double-decker buses.

Floristry was a double-team affair with church flowers by The Topiary Tree and at the venue by Red Floral with cake by The Frostery.

A ‘Mardi Gras’ style band entertained during the drinks reception and the evening band were The Fanatics with the finale being a show of firedancing.

Cynthia & Richard are honeymooning in Rome and on the Amalfi coast in Italy.

Full gallery with international print ordering facility available by clicking here and wedding film to follow very soon…

Helen & Ed’s Middleton Lodge June Wedding


“Perfect timing Simon! Just sat down with a beer as the evening thunder storm rumbles away and this comes through!
Breathtaking pictures, I had a big lump in my throat through all of them, we’re both delighted with them.
We hope you had an enjoyable day regardless of being on the job, the pictures prove to us what we thought all along: that everybody was laughing all day long!”  Ed.

Helen & Ed’s Middleton Lodge June wedding was something a bit special and the fat lady sang from start to finish…at least from the photographers viewpoint! Even a bit of light rain had no affect during the drinks reception and mixed with splashes of sunshine, the weather was quite kind.

There was a real pastel colour theme to the day of pale pinks, blues and yellows (bridesmaids dresses and flowers) with floristry by Eliza Blooms and cake by The Cake Works of Darlington.

A sax player entertained throughout the drinks reception and the evening band were Groove Manuva.

Helen & Ed are at the time of writing, currently honeymooning in Valencia, Spain.

Below is a highlights gallery & slideshow production from the day with full gallery with print ordering facility to follow shortly now available here.

The Harrogate Marquee Wedding of Rosie & Hamish

Just seen the video and wanted to say how lovely it is. Brought tears to my eyes – and I’d managed to hold it together on the day!! Thanks again. Tim (FOB)
Saturday 13th June was the Harrogate Marquee wedding of Rosie & Hamish taking place at All Saints church and Hamish’s parents home, The Old Rectory in Kirkby Overblow.

It was supposed to be wet. It wasn’t. The last thing anyone wants on a wedding day is rain, but especially so with a garden based marquee wedding and against everything the met office said was happening, the sun came out for some of the day. And it did not rain.

Rosie wore Caroline Castigliano from The Harrogate Wedding Lounge and was attended by her 4 bridesmaids; Emily, Emily, Sophie & Katy.

During the ceremony & drinks reception, Georgina Wells played her harp and evening entertainment was courtesy of dancefloor fillers, Groove Anatomy (plus The Notorious B.I.G. between sets).

The flowers and cake were both by the family and catering by a great company we have worked with several times before, Mike Kernall.

Rosie & Hamish will be honeymooning in Italy taking in; Portofino, Sorrento and the Amalfi coast.

A great wedding, – great people and day and below is their wedding film in 2 parts and a highlights selection from their photography with full gallery to follow shortly now available to view and order prints from here.

Castelnau Des Fieumarcon Wedding – Fin & Dom

Hi Simon, we’ve just had a look at the film and absolutely love it, – it is AWESOME!!! Fin & Dom

My post in regard to this wedding is a little different this week.

Normally, I struggle to whittle a finished set of over 500+ finished images down to ‘just’ 150 or so (for the blog post) and it’s an agonising process as every image that makes the final cut, is an integral part of the story.

A question that is sometimes asked is “can you tell a story in a single picture” and the answer is both yes and no.

Yes in that it depends upon what that ‘story’ is and if it’s a single image that defines a moment (or short period or event) in time, it can be done, but in many cases, only to the photographer or the client/subject.

In regard to a wedding day, I’d say no, it cannot be done.

For instance, I could define Fin & Dom’s Castelnau Des Fieumarcon wedding in a single image…to me, but it almost certainly will not define it to anyone else for the simple reason, you (unless you are the B&G or a guest!) were not there and so do not have your memories to add to this single image.

But this single image could define their wedding for me:
