Jane & Tim’s North Yorkshire Wedding


Firehorse Photography France

And that is the end of an era.

It began 8 years ago. Longer actually and I can’t remember whom specifically, but between 8-10 years ago, I photographed an ex-Harrogate Ladies College pupil’s wedding.

That led to a series of ‘ex-Harrogate Ladies College pupil’s weddings’ one of those being Caroline, the first of the Tennant sisters & cousins.

The Tennant family is quite well known in Yorkshire for their auction house in Leyburn which hosts something like 80+ fine-art, antique and collectors auctions per annum. And I have now photographed all 4 Tennant girl weddings. There are no more Tennant wedding for me to photograph!

It began as I said with Caroline (& Jamie), – a church ceremony in Middleham just around the corner from the family home at Neville Hall of the 3 sisters.

Then it was cousin Lizzie to Edd a couple of years later at the same church (and still possibly my favourite confetti picture) and a marquee at The Blue Lion in West Witton.

The third was middle sister Ali (& George) at the family church and marquee reception at Jervaulx Abbey.

And then finally it was ‘baby’ sister Jane. Like me, she has been a witness to her 2 sisters and cousin’s wedding so I cannot imagine not photographing her day and completing the quadrilogy.

That event took place last weekend at church in Middleham and then on to the reception at the fabulous Tennant’s Auction Room’s in Leyburn. It’s a pretty swanky place and was perfect for Jane & Tim’s Winter wedding.

“Let’s see what you make of a Tennant Winter wedding Simon”, was one of the last things Jane said to me in the days prior.

I made the (below) Jane. A lot of the credit goes to you and your families who I shall genuinely miss.

Emmalene & Charles’s Armathwaite Hall Wedding


Firehorse Photography France

December 2015, I received an enquiry from a certain Emmalene C which read:

“I found out about you a couple of years ago when my best friend and I were dreaming of our future wedding days. Before I’d even got engaged! On the 4th October this year he finally popped the question and you are 1st on my list of 1 photographer. I have kept on checking your website over the years I have known about you and your pictures are simply stunning, very natural and not overly posed or staged, just capturing the essence of the wedding”.

Right, not too much pressure there then…

I hope I lived up to those expectation Emm. Or at least the work I produced with my sidekick for the day James of www.jamesstewartphotography.co.uk

(I normally work alone but based on certain time constraints on this particular day, we decided 2 would be a good idea).

Now according to the law of sod, this was one of those days when the client deserved to have all the planets in alignment whilst that proverbial big boned lady warbled in the background.

They did. And she did. OK, it was still a Winter wedding which has certain constraints in itself, but the weather was a gift, the venue beautiful and the people a joy.

It’s what makes this profession for me. Day like this, people like Emm & Charlie.
