Pre wedding photography with Rachael and Paul

On Saturday we met Rachael and Paul to discuss the arrangements for their wedding.

They are getting married at Rise Hall later this month.

It was a very windy, cold day so we decided to take most of their photographs inside.

Luckily Rise Hall has a lot of lovely spaces to choose from. However, we were a little restricted as the venue was open for viewing. This meant that we were not able to choose our favourite spots and had to move on a couple of times to make way for others.

Despite this, Rachael and Paul were very good humoured and natural in front of the camera. This means that we are sure to have a wonderful time photographing them on their wedding day.

 

Pre wedding photography with Sarah and Lee

Sarah and Lee are getting married on Valentines day. We met up with them last week at Lazaat for their pre wedding photo shoot and to discuss their plans.

Our pre shoot is a chance for us to get to know our couple. It also helps us to understand the arrangements for their wedding. It also give the couple a chance to get used to being in front of the camera. This ensures that they get the best from their wedding photography.

Sarah and Lee were very relaxed in front of the camera. This makes our job as photographers so much easier! We are very much looking forward to photographing their wedding day.

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.
