Wedding Photography Hallmark Hotel, East Yorkshire – Rebecca & Joe

Congratulations to Rebecca and Joe who were married today in Hedon. The sun shone brightly and we arrived at Rebecca’s mums house to find everyone well ahead of schedule and everything completely organised. It is rare that we get the opportunity to photograph the bride AND the bridesmaids before the wedding so full marks to everyone for being ready on time. The flowers were done by the Floral Lounge and were some of the best we have ever seen and complimented the bridesmaids dresses so beautifully. We met Joe at the church and had some fun taking photographs of him with the groomsmen. Our thanks go to Kathy the Vicar from at St Augustines Church who was so kind and helpful and made our job so much easier. After the service we headed out to Hessle foreshore for a photo opportunity and then went on to the Hallmark Hotel in Ferriby for more photos! We have had a really lovely day with Rebecca and Joe and wish them a long and happy life together.

Wedding Photography Normanby Hall, Lincolnshire – Libby & Richard

We have just had a totally fantastic day photographing the wedding of Libby & Richard who were married at Normanby Hall in Lincolnshire. Today the weather was kind and we all enjoyed the fabulous Spring sunshine. Our thanks to the staff at Normanby Hall who were absolutely fantastic and couldn’t do enough for the happy couple or for us and it makes such a difference when a venue goes the extra mile to make everyone feel welcome. I feel I should also give a mention to the registrars who were simply delightful and so accommodating about photographs during the ceremony; nothing was too much trouble to them and they added a lightness of touch that made a real difference. Libby and Richard looked totally stunning and I fell head over heels for Libby’s lovely dress. Family and friends were warm and welcoming and it was definitely a day to remember!

Wedding Photography Lazaat, East Yorkshire – Nicky & Dean

Congratulations to Nicky & Dean who were married today at Lazaat in Cottingham, East Yorkshire. We spent much of the day dodging the awful weather!  Last week we battled the rain in Teeside and today we had the additional challenge of gusty wind. Nicky & Deans family and friends were great sports, braving the weather for the wedding photographs and once again brollies were the order of the day. Despite the weather we still managed to get some lovely shots of the happy couple!

Wedding Photography Angrove Park – Abi & Mark’s Wedstival

Yesterday saw us photographing the wedding of Abi & Mark were wellies and posh frocks were the order of the day! We arrived at Angrove Park at around 9am to photograph the bride in what can only be described as torrential rain.We found Abi in her teepee with the hairdresser and make up artist and our hearts went out to her as she could have done with a life raft and water wings such was the force of the weather! Drips and puddles all around with hardly a dry spot in the house. Mark was on hand to provide a much needed hug and reassurance and undeterred the preparations began. Spirits lifted with the help of champagne and following a quick chat with the celebrant the decision was made to postpone for half an hour. The ceremony eventually took place at 11.30 by the fallen tree and finally the rain relented and their very personal and moving service went ahead without a hitch. The reception was held in a giant teepee and guests were treated to a hog roast and the celebrations got well and truly underway with a guest appearance by the King himself! Abi & Mark took the brave decision to do something personal and different for their wedding and they were rewarded with what can only be described as a truly magical and memorable occasion. We had a fantastic day with their family and friends and there are loads more wedding photographs to come. This is one we will not forget for a long time!

Pre Wedding Photography, Rowley Manor, East Yorkshire – Hannah & Jordan

Here’s another pre wedding photography shoot and this time we were with Hannah and Jordan who are getting married at Rowley Manor, East Yorkshire. Thankfully the rain held off for this one! We had a lovely evening chatting about their plans and are really looking forward to taking their wedding photographs in June.
