I am delighted to share the preview wedding photography for Victoria and Jospeh, who were married on Friday at Crab Manor, near Thirsk. This was our final wedding of 2018 and what a lovely way to finish. We had a truly wonderful day with this lovely couple and their amazing family and friends. From start to finish the day was full of joy. With weddings, I feel that it is the bride who sets the tone for the day, so it is no surprise to say that the day was also elegant, well organised and just a total pleasure to be part of. As it was November and we were uncertain of how the weather might behave, Victoria and Joseph had opted to have an early morning reveal, rather than choose the traditional option of the groom seeing his bride for the first time when she comes down the aisle. I have to say that this afforded this couple a very intimate and happy moment as they saw each other for the first time, and I really love the images that we captured for them during these touching moments. Their decision to have a ‘reveal’ also meant that we were able to do many of their couple portraits before the ceremony took place. This gave them (and us), a very relaxed experience, and as the weather was so beautiful, we were able to make the most of the beautiful gardens at Crab Manor. The ceremony took place at 1.30pm and there were a few laughs when Jospeh mixed up his words! Following the service, guests enjoyed a celebratory drink outside the conservatory, before joining us for the formal family photographs. We had many laughs with them during this part of the day, and they all made our job very easy with their good humour. We had a totally amazing day with Victoria and Joseph, finishing the day as relaxed as we started it. This is probably a first for us and down to the good grace and organisation of this beautiful couple. We wish them a very happy future together and look forward to sharing the rest of their wedding photography with them very soon!
