The Engine Shed, Wetherby wedding | Emma and Ed

A slightly belated happy new year to you all! I hope you had a fantastic festive season and you’re all raring to go for 2018! OK, so the weather is a bit rubbish and I wish the sun wouldn’t set so early, but spring is just around the corner and there’s lots of exciting weddings to look forward to over the next 12 months.

For my first post of the year, I thought I would look back at Emma and Ed’s wedding from last September at the converted Grade II listed The Engine Shed in Wetherby.

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!

Why I include photo books in my wedding photography packages

When you choose either my standard or deluxe wedding packages, I include a photo book in the price. I believe when it comes to photography, there is no better way to appreciate an image than in actual printed form. To pick up a book, to touch it, to have that tangible form in front of you is the ultimate keepsake of your big day.

Your digital photos will sit happily in the ‘cloud’ or on your computer’s hard drive, but seeing them in the flesh is something else. Everyone has thousands of digital images of images stored on their phones and in memory cards these days. It’s the norm. But how many of those ever get seen again after they have been taken?

Springtime pre-wedding shoot

Tomorrow is the wedding of these two lovelies, Teresa and Des at Woodhall Hall Hotel and Spa in Wetherby and I can’t wait! Ahead of their big day, I thought I would share with you a few photos from their engagement shoot.

We met up back in April for their pre-wedding shoot on The Stray in Harrogate under the gorgeous cherry blossoms. I cannot wait to capture their day tomorrow, so I’m going to keep things brief to ensure I’m on top form for the morning. Whoop!
