What an absolutely amazing year it’s been so far. My busiest yet! My little blog really has taken the back seat in recent months. Shooting weddings most weekends and editing mid week has meant I’ve not had much chance to come up for air – plus September saw the return of wedding fair season meaning things around here just don’t stop! With Christmas just around corner doesn’t mean things are slowing down any time soon either. December is one of my busiest months this year. Trust me, I am not complaining – I just feel a little bad that I’ve not shared as much as I’d have liked to, the amazing weddings I have been super lucky to have been a part of.
I am not getting the chance to post many wedding blogs at the moment, wedding season is definitely upon us and I am just over a third of the way through this years bookings. It’s been an amazing season so far, taking me across Yorkshire and further afield. From the stunning backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales, to the olive groves of the Tuscan countryside*. With 20 weddings still to go before 31 December, I am very much looking forward to finding out what the rest of 2018 has waiting for me.
* more on my first Italian wedding soon.
What an absolutely stunning part of the world Burnsall is. Set in Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the venue for Emma and Jon’s wedding was the stunning 16th century country house The Red Lion, which is a set on the bank of the River Wharfe.
I am really getting into the swing of wedding season 2018 at the moment, so I’m not blogging as often as I would normally. However, I thought I would take a little time out from shooting and editing to reminisce about my first wedding of the year which took place at the historic Merchant Adventurers’ Hall in York back in January.
You may remember my lovely bride and groom Natalie and Jack from their engagement shoot last spring. I first met them at a wedding show, where they were the lucky winners of an engagement photo shoot competition I was running. So I was very excited when they decided to book me for their wedding photography.
They both met when they were working as guides at York Castle Museum, dressing as Victorians, cooking medieval food and playing with 18th century weaponry – how fun!
