Congratulation to Lesley and Chris who were married yesterday in the Yorkshire Dales. What a fantastic backdrop the Yorkshire Dales provides for wedding photography and just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, Lesley and Chris chose The Priests House at Barden Tower as the location for their special day. We were spoilt for choice for the wedding photography at this fabulous venue but managed to make the most of everything it had to offer. The forecast was a little ominous at the beginning of the week, but thankfully it stayed dry and guests were escorted to the venue in a Vintage bus, along with the groom. The bride arrived in style in a beautiful old style Rolls Royce and was given away by her son, Jonathan and accompanied by her bridesmaid Debbie.The small and intimate ceremony included some poems written especially for the occasion and the happy couple were able to enjoy their celebratory drinks outside, following the formal proceedings. The best man Dave was a great help rounding everyone up for the group photographs and Lesley’s mum June, was determined to join us on the lawn, despite our assurances we would go to her! Lesley was a fantastic sport, donning her walking boots underneath her dress, in order to take a short hike, over a stile and into the field, so that we could get some photographs of her and Chris, with the ruin behind them. Not many brides would have been so game, and she was rewarded with a bit of a laugh when my David, having warned Lesley to watch her step, promptly missed his footing and did a spot of ‘bottom’ ski-ing down into the field! Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to capture that on camera! We had a really wonderful day photographing Lesley and Chris and we wish them a very happy future together.
