Preview Wedding Photography for Claire and Steven

I am delighted to share with you the preview wedding photography for Claire and Steven who were married at Eastrington Church and held their reception at Boothferry Golf Club on Saturday. We arrived early at the brides home and preparations were well under way. The girls had already had their hair done by Pro Styling in Goole and the make up was well in underway. Claire’s gorgeous dress was from Bridal Oasis in Goole and the look was finished off beautifully with her bouquet from All Occasion Flowers, Howden. The bridesmaids Molly, Anna, Jayne and Holly looked lovely in their sage green dresses and little flower girl Jasmine complete the pretty picture in her gorgeous flower girls dress! We met up with Steven and his best man Lee at the church and unfortunately the rain had set in. We were soon joined by ushers Kevin, Antony and Kevin, and were able to dash outside for some photographs, whist there was a brief respite from the rain. Guests began to arrive and were entertained inside the church by singer Matthew Clarke and the rain kept coming! The bride arrived with her father and they made a spirited dash for the church under the cover of an umbrella, and the all important ceremony was soon underway. The couples son Frankie completely stole the show in church dashing around excitedly and sharing his best monster impressions! The happy couple exited the church once the rain eased, and we managed to grab a few group photographs before everyone made their way to the reception. Once at the golf club, the rain eased for a short while and the little ones (and one bigger ‘boy’!) enjoyed blowing bubbles on the first tee! The marque looked beautiful and following the meal, guests were delighted with a surprise appearance from the Singing Waiters and a good time was had by all! Claire and Steven are a really lovely couple and we very much enjoyed being part of their special day. We wish them every happiness for the future and look forward to sharing all of their wedding photography with them soon.

Wedding Photography at Cave Castle with Emily & Jamie

Here is the preview wedding photography for Emily and Jamie who were married on Saturday at Cave Castle Hotel, East Yorkshire. It was another blustery, rainy day and we were lucky in that we managed for the most part to dodge the rain! We met the bride in the morning at Cave Castle and she was busy getting ready with bridesmaids Jade, Jasmine, Claire, Mia, Jennifer, Sophia and daughter Aleeya. Emily was ready on time which gave us enough time to do the bridal portraits whilst the girls got the little ones into their outfits. We then met up with Jamie, his best man Josh and the rest of his groomsmen for some quick photographs before returning to the bride. Guests began to arrive and before long, the bride was met by her father on the stairs at Cave Castle and despite a few tears from Aleeya,  the ceremony was soon underway. The happy couple enjoyed a celebratory drink on the terrace before we began to capture their formal group photographs.The weather looked as if it might offer us another shower, so we headed off to capture some quick portraits of the happy couple, and they had just sat down for their wedding reception when the heavens opened. We managed to squeeze in a couple more pictures after the meal and we were rescued by Michael, the toastmaster, who was kind enough to bring the couple a brolly to save them from a further deluge of rain! Emily and Jamie are a lovely couple and we had a great day photographing their wedding. We wish them every happiness in their future life together.

Emma & James Wedding at the Hallmark, North Ferriby

I am delighted to share with you the preview wedding photography for Emma and James who were married on Friday at the Hallmark Hotel, North Ferriby. It was an awful day weather wise, with heavy rain for most of the time. We started the day with the bride and her bridesmaids Grace, Becky, Emily, Libby and Rose and the girls were busy having the finishing touches done to hair and make up. Emma look lovely in her dress from Jacquelines of Beverley and the look was completed with flowers from Orange Blossom. We were able to do some quick portraits of Emma, her bridemaids and mum and Dave just before another rain shower started. When we arrived at the Hallmark, it was still raining but James and the groomsmen looked super smart in their suits from Len Beck and we took some of their photographs inside the venue. The rain eased and the boys braved the elements and we were able to grab some photographs outside.  We always look forward to the moment when the bride arrives so that we can capture that special moment before she heads down the aisle, but our priority on Friday was keeping Emma nice and dry! The couple had written their own vows to each other which added something special to the ceremony. Following the service guests enjoyed their celebratory drinks whilst we completed the traditional group photographs inside. Once again the rain eased a little and everyone headed outside to throw some confetti. We also managed to get some very quick portraits of the happy couple before they headed inside to enjoy their meal with family and friends. Emma and James are a really lovely couple and we had a great day with them and their family and friends. We wish them every happiness in their future life together.

Lincolnshire Wedding Photographer at Normanby Hall with Samantha and Kenny

We had a lovely day yesterday, doing the wedding photography for Samantha and Kenny, who were married at Holy Trinity Church in Barrow on Humber, and held their wedding reception at Normanby Hall. The day started bright and early with Samantha and her bridesmaids Karen, Linsey and Inessa and little flower girl Taylen.  Samantha was ready early for us which gave us some time to do her bridal portraits outside in the garden. The theme for the wedding was woodland fairies, and in keeping with this, the bride walked barefoot down the aisle to meet her groom Kenny, who looked very handsome in his army uniform. Samantha arrived at church in the car which originally belonged to her grandad, but was driven by Uncle Jason who also gave her away. The happy couple excited the church to the sound of the bells and following the group photographs, everyone headed off to Normanby Hall for a celebratory drink. Our portraits of the couple were done during a brief walk around the gorgeous gardens at Normanby Hall, and as always our time with them was brief and we had to return them to their family and friends. Samantha and Kenny are a lovely couple and we wish them every happiness in their life together and look forward to sharing their full collection of wedding photographs with them.

Pre wedding Photography for Michelle and Nigel

I am pleased to share the pre wedding photography for Michelle and Nigel who nare getting married in September at the Deep in Hull. We met up with them, on a blustery summers evening at a local pub, to go over the arrangements for the big day, and then headed outside for their pre wedding photoshoot. We braved the drizzle and the wind and Michelle and Nigel didn’t bat an eyelid at the conditions. Not only were they were great company, but they were very easy to work with. They responded really well to direction and were relaxed and easy with one another and in front of the camera. This made our job really easy. The challenges for a wedding photographer are usually the time, the available light and the weather, and this one at the Deep will be no exception. Photography at the Deep is a little tricky owing to the lack of light and the fact that flash is not allowed near the tanks, but as we are primarily natural light photographers, it won’t be too much of a change from our usual way of shooting. Our main challenge for Michelle and Nigel, will be the amount time available to do the photography, but as they as so easy to work with, I am sure that we will produce something lovely for them. Michelle and Nigel are one of the nicest couples we have had the pleasure of working with, and we had great fun with them on the pre shoot.  We are very much looking forward to being part of their special day.
