Despite autumn being just around the corner, the sun was shining and it was a beautiful start to the day as I made my way to Craiglands to meet Fiona and the bridal party for pre wedding prep. I had a little déjà vu as I made my way to the hotel as this was the venue that kick started my wedding photography career, assisting my photography tutor Steve in 2011. It was lovely to be back!
For my second August Bank Holiday wedding, I headed over to Otley Parish Church in the glorious sunshine for Emma and Seb’s wedding.
Emma had chosen not to have any bridal preparation photographs taken, so my first point of call was at the church to meet Seb and their guests arriving. I don’t get to see as much of this part of the day normally, so it was fab to see everyone arriving, greeting Seb and the groomsmen in excited anticipation of the day ahead.
I am starting to look back at a few weddings from the summer now things are a little quieter than it has been in recent weeks. As the nights draw in and we all start to think about putting the heating on, I will be bringing you a selection of weddings from late August and September to brighten up the darker nights.
First up, is Sarah and Nick’s big day. Their’s was my first of two weddings over the warmest August bank holiday in history (apparently). To be fair, the weather was beautiful!
I joined Sarah in the morning where she was getting ready at a friend’s home. It was a busy household and everyone was in an excited mood. They had even decorated the living room with balloons and banners for the bride-to-be.

It was a beautiful August day when I headed to the Cedar Court Hotel, Harrogate for Mackenzie and Mike’s wedding day. Mackenzie was getting ready at the hotel with her mum and sister, Kennedy whilst Mike got ready with their children, who would join us later.
The couple incorporated a Disney theme, from the page boys’ bow ties and Mackenzie’s nails to the table centre pieces and the cake topper, subtle hints at Disney were everywhere.
Once the children arrived at the hotel, we suddenly had a very busy hotel room! The bride had the task of getting herself ready at the same time as making sure the children were ready too. It was all hands on deck, and despite lots going on, they made things look surprisingly easy. Everyone look fab, I loved the vibrant reds of the flowers and Kennedy’s dress, which contrasted well with the creams of the page boys’ and flower girl’s outfits.
