End of an Era


Firehorse Photography France

That’s it folks, – this particular door is closed!

After 16 years and 600+ weddings, Firehorse Photography Ltd is now no longer taking bookings for UK weddings.


No, we haven’t folded or retired or even run away to South America, but moved to France.

(The new) Firehorse Photography (Fr.) is alive & well and thriving at firehorsephotographyfrance.com and has been as a new & separate business for some time.

So I’d like to thank everyone, – clients, venues, wedding planners and everyone we have come across over the last 16 years, – it’s been great.

But now it’s time to close that door and fully open the new one (actually I did a while back but was waiting for the last UK wedding to be completed).

Is that to say I will never ever, ever, photograph or film another UK wedding?

It depends… I’m concentrating purely on France for the next 16 years and have a pretty full diary for weddings here, but can sometimes be tempted to leave, – try me 😉

Exclusively France May-Sep that is. UK (or other destinations) Oct/Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar/Apr are all still good!

So thanks and best wishes to all and if you are planning a wedding in France, “bonjour!”


Georgie & Miles’s Rudding Park Wedding


Firehorse Photography France

And following on from last week’s Rudding Park wedding just 6 days ago, I was back once more.

I’m not entirely sure how many weddings I have photographed at this fine Harrogate venue over the last 17 years, but it’s well over 60 visits.

Every time, it is genuinely different.

Different times of year. Different weather. Different rooms used. Different types of ceremony. Different people…

Georgie & Miles was no different in that…ie, it was unique.

Preps took place not in one of the suites, but a room whose name escapes me but is perfectly suited to this.

The ceremony itself took place at Christchurch on The Stray which is a very fine & welcoming church and then it was back to Rudding in a fleet of Yorkshire Wedding Cars and a vintage bus.

It stayed dry for the duration, but was hardly a heatwave but none of that made any difference to Georgie & Miles who had a superb day

Below, a selection of highlights with full gallery available by clicking here and wedding films above & below!

Sam & Tom’s Spring Rudding Park Wedding


Firehorse Photography France

I first met Sam & Tom at one of the Rudding Park open days.

We clicked straight away and I knew I wanted to capture their wedding day for them.

That day finally came about the other week.

The weather didn’t play too fair with us, but we managed a few minutes outside between the rain.

Sam & Tom’s ceremony took place in the Radcliffe room complete with string quartet who also played throughout the drinks reception that followed.

Above is a slideshow created from the highlights of their day with pics below.

Full gallery with international print ordering facility available here.

“We have just watched the video & it is amazing! Thank you so much! The photographs are unreal”.
