The Star Inn – Harome – Foody Heaven!

Things we like, Uncategorizedon August 17th, 20112 Comments

We covered Rachel & Andrews wedding the other week at The Star Inn and they specifically asked if we could take some shots of the food, thankfully as it’s summer the light was ideal which meant the shots worked well.
It’s always a bit stressful taking food shots when it’s flying off the pass into the dining room as you don’t want to hold up service and become a pain in the bum to the staff, so it’s fast work with minimal fuss but I think they look pretty good.
We love working at The Star Inn, it’s such a fab venue with ace food, great staff and loads for us to work with as photographers.
I’ll blog about the wedding when I catch up with weddings but as I’ve just sent a disc off to the immensley talented Andrew Pern (who recently appeared on The Great British Menu winning a regional heat) and as I found myself salivating at the shots I thought I’d post them here – hope you’ve already eaten cos this will kill you if you’re hungry!

The Old Swan Harrogate

We seem to be spending more and more time at this venue these days.

Back in March we photographed Vicky and Shakil’s wedding, Vicky was a little nervous when she turned up at the church in Ripley (like most brides) but she soon overcame this and the day ran as clockwork!

Here’s a lovely note we received after Vicky and Shakil came back from their honeymoon…

Thank you so much! We’ve had a look at the photos online and they are amazing.
In case I didn’t say this on the day thank you so much! You guys were really professional and really helped to make the day as special as it was. Many people commented to us on how much they liked your approach, being so unobtrusive and efficient, and that has come through in the pictures, very natural shots and just what we were after. Even the hotel commented that photographers rarely keep to schedule and you guys actually helped us to keep it!

So thanks again and I am being very smug to Vicki about being the one who found you on Google!

Swinton Park Wedding Photography

Lucy & Jonathan March 2011

Spring started with our first wedding at Swinton Park in Masham, North Yorkshire.

Lucy & Jonathan decided to have their ceremony later on in the day, it was quite a chilly afternoon but they managed to brave it and we ventured outside for some photography during the reception.

The dress code was black tie for the afternoon/evening and Lucy had the most amazing Jimmy Choo’s!

After dinner they had organised a casino to keep the guests entertained, we thought this was a fab idea, one which we had also used for our own wedding a few years back.

The Old Swan Harrogate Wedding

Uncategorized, Weddingson March 18th, 2011Comments Off

Back in October, Rachel & Kevin tied the knot, the day started at the church in Burton Leonard, followed by The Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate.
After the ceremony, the ancient tradition of the church gates being tied up took place and cash had to be thrown to the local children to have them opened!
Autumn is always a beautiful time of year for photography and the lovely colour in the leaves can make a huge difference.
After arriving at the Old Swan we took the bride and groom for a stroll around Harrogate for some photos!

This was the first time for us at The Old Swan, we were really impressed with the venue and especially the staff, everything run like clockwork.
