Shears Yard, Leeds | Cara and Chris’s city centre wedding

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.

My wedding blogs are not published in any particular order, they are mainly a refection of what I am thinking about in a particular week. So this week I am missing summer. The nights are really drawing in now, and whilst I love Christmas, I am not a fan of it starting so early, and I miss those long balmy evenings we had during the sunnier months. With that in mind, I want to share Cara and Chris’s awesome city wedding back in June.

The couple

I met up with Cara and Chris for a coffee and a chat at the The Tiled Hall at Leeds Art Gallery back in March this year after initially meeting at a wedding fayre. They were both excited about their upcoming day, it was only three months away, but they seemed so relaxed about the whole thing. A good outlook to have I think!

They had met through a mutual friend and were friends for about a year before they realised there was more to their friendship and it grew into more. Chris popped the question a few years ago, but Cara wasn’t sure they were ready as hadn’t been dating long. A couple of years later however, Cara proposed to Chris at home and he said yes!
