Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, York | Natalie and Jack’s wedding

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.

The couple

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!

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 photograph and 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 Engine Shed, Wetherby wedding from last September.

I arrived at a local hotel for bridal prep, but Emma and her best friend were pretty much ready when I arrived. Many of the guests were also getting ready at the hotel and they popped by to say hi whilst I was there. Not bothered about any superstition about seeing the bride ahead of the ceremony, even Ed swung by beforehand.

St Peter’s Church Rawdon and Craiglands Hotel Ilkley | Fiona and Joe’s wedding

September was a jam packed month for weddings and first up was Fiona and Joe’s gorgeous day at St Peter’s Church in Rawdon followed by their reception at Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley.

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!
