A Wedding at the Country Park Inn with Megan and Shaun

On Saturday we photographed the wedding of Megan and Shaun at the Country Park Inn, Hessle.

The riverside location provides a beautiful backdrop for wedding photography and we were lucky to have a sunny day.

We started our photography for the day with Megan and her bridemaids. Preparations began early for the ceremony at 11 o clock.

Shortly before we met up with Shaun and best man Josh to take some portraits before they headed inside to meet the registrars.

We then went back to see Megan and to complete her bridal portraits.

Once guests were assembled Megan was escorted down the aisle by dad Alan to meet her groom.

Following the service guests enjoyed a celebratory drink in the foyer before heading outside for the all important family group photographs. This is a special part of any wedding and captures precious memories for the couple.

The early start afforded us the luxury of time. This gave us plenty of opportunity to create some special photographs for Megan and Shaun.

The guests enjoyed afternoon tea with the happy couple before they all took a short break.

We met up afterwards with Megan and Shaun to conclude their couple portraits. Hessle Foreshore provides a stunning backdrop for photographs and we were pleased to have sufficient time to do it justice.

In the evening the couple were joined by more family and friends for the celebrations and the first dance.

Megan and Shaun are such a lovely couple and we very much enjoyed photographing their special day. We wish them every happiness in the future.

Pre wedding photoshoot with Megan and Shaun

On Monday we met up with Megan and Shaun for their pre wedding meeting and photoshoot. They are getting married later this month at the Country Park Inn on Hessle foreshore.

After a brief chat about their arrangements, we headed outside to take some photos. The pre wedding photography shoot is a great opportunity for us to get to know our couple and for them to get used to being in front of the camera.

Megan and Shaun are a lovely couple and were very easy to work with and we are  looking forward to photographing their special day.

 

A wedding at Saltmarshe Hall with Natalie and Hayden

On Saturday we photographed the wedding of Natalie and Hayden at Saltmarshe Hall. Saltmarshe is a stunning wedding venue and is one of our favourite places for wedding photography as it offers such a fabulous range of locations for photographs.

We started the day with Natalie and her bridesmaids whilst they were getting ready. The girls sipped their champagne whilst having their hair and make up done.

After taking some stunning bridal portraits of Natalie, we headed downstairs to meet up with Hayden and the groomsmen.

Natalie and Hayden had opted for an outdoor ceremony in the walled garden at Saltmarshe Hall. On one of the hottest days of the year, guests took shade in the tall hedges whilst they waited for the arrival of the bride.

Once the ceremony was complete, we worked quickly in the shade to conclude the group photographs.

Guests enjoyed the formal reception outside under a fabulous marque just adjacent to the Hall.

Natalie and Hayden had a wonderful day and were very easy to work with. We look forward to sharing the rest of their wedding photography with them.

Pre wedding photography at Saltmarshe Hall with Natalie and Hayden

On Monday we met up with Natalie and Hayden for their pre wedding meeting and photoshoot. It was a lovely evening and the gardens at Saltmarshe Hall looked stunning. Saltmarshe Hall is a fabulous venue and location for a wedding. It offers some stunning backdrops for photography both inside and outside. It is rare that a wedding photographer has so many beautiful options to choose from!

We met Natalie and Hayden in the library where we all enjoyed a cup of coffee whilst chatting through their plans for the wedding. After this we headed out into the gardens to decide on the best locations for their wedding photographs.

Natalie and Hayden are a lovely couple who were very relaxed in front of the camera. We are very much looking forward to photographing their special day.

Pre wedding photography shoot in Barton with Sophie and David

Yesterday we had a lovely couple of hours meeting up with Sophie and David for their pre wedding photography shoot. They are having their wedding blessing in St Mary’s Church in Barton in July. It was an overcast blustery evening but despite this we managed to do the shoot! We were able to chat about the couples plans in St Mary’s before the vicar came to lock up for the evening. Sophie and David are a lovely couple and we are very much looking forward to photographing their wedding blessing.
