Wedding Photography

Emma & Mark

a traditional church wedding and a quirky wedding reception…

Emma & Mark had their Yorkshire wedding photography cover the whole day.  Starting at home with Emma and all the girls the prosecco and selfies were plentiful!  Harry (the bride and grooms son) managed to maim me with a well aimed ninja back fist punch to the groin BUT I carried on regardless! Spofforth Church played host for the ceremony before the wedding party headed to Spofforth Castle for the formal group shots and couples portraits.  The weather was fantastic!

I have never taken photographs of a bride turning up at her reception in a tractor but this was a highlight for them and Harry. The Engine Shed in Wetherby is a fantastic venue with loads of character and plenty of exploring for the little guests too.  Some beautiful lighting over the tables made for some really different colours in the photos.  Quite a dramatic sky in the later part of the evening meant we could capture a few extra portraits with Emma and Mark which is always a summer wedding bonus.

The vicar was very strict with us during the ceremony and only allowed photography from the back of the church.  This made variation a real issue but thankfully with a long lens and a steady hand we were able to use a variety of crops and some black and white processing to help variety.

Emma wanted to use a couple of their wedding photography shots to announce the fact that they were pregnant with their second child.  We did this as part of the formal portraits in the castle grounds whilst no one was watching! The processing was kept simple and soft.

Emma and Mark went on their honeymoon and were given the odd sneak-peak whilst away so we knew they liked what was being prepared. All ready for them on their return from honeymoon and a happy couple with a gorgeous set of images to remember their fantastic day!
