Coniston Hotel Wedding Photography – Charlotte and Steven

Coniston Hotel and Hall Wedding Photography

In August we photographed the wedding celebrations of Charlotte and Steven.

Being the first visit to this lovely venue Coniston Hotel , we were overwhelmed how stunning the venue, hall and grounds were, the staff were also very friendly/helpful too.

The day started at the hotel, where on arrival things were already in full swing and a couple of vintage buses were waiting at the front of the hotel to ferry guests along to the church, which was only a few minutes drive away.

After the ceremony (the heavens opened – just for a change!) and after a few quick photos we headed off to the hall. On arrival the rain had stopped (hurray), this was great as it meant everyone could stand outside and enjoy the view.

These guys were great fun on the day, thanks to them and to Alan Macmillan (who produced the video), as always he was a pleasure to work with!

Ripley Castle Wedding Photography

Weddingson September 21st, 2012Comments Off

Vicky & Carl picked a blinder of a day for their wedding at Ripley Castle back in July. As we set off to The Bijou Hotel where Vicky was getting ready we couldn’t believe we were actually going to a wedding in the sun – awesome!

Vicky wore a beautiful dress by Ellis Bridal and had chosen Calla Lillies for her stunning bouquet.
Thankfully the decent weather gave us the opportunity to head down to the lake at Ripley Castle and create some great memories of their day in both still and video.

Other suppliers on the day included Function 54 for dressing the room and for the evening music Audio Events.

As expected everything ran smoothly, a testament to the hard working staff at Ripley who are always fantastic to work alongside and the happy couple were a pleasure to be with on their special day!

Aldwark Manor – Wedding Photography and Video

Wedding Films, Weddingson August 30th, 20121 Comment

We arrived at Aldwark Manor on a sunny morning in June to photograph & video Laura & Lukes wedding. After taking a few shots at the church we headed up to the hotel to find the fire alarm going off and people walking out of the hotel to gather in the car park. I asked the staff if it was a real alarm and was told it was but after a couple of minutes we were told that it was safe to return as there was no fire – TFFT.
Laura was in the bridal suite getting ready totally unfazed by the alarm (that I said I’d set off on my way up to the room to help build a bit of excitement for the day ahead) and looking super excited as everyone was buzzing about getting everything ready.

After that the day ran smoothly and we had some lovely sunshine as we exited the church and headed back up to Aldwark for group shots. As we started the first few groups a very large black cloud started to head our way and we could hear the rumble of thunder with the odd flash of lighting up the sky, we had to move quickly and managed to get through all the groups including a shot of everyone before it reached us.

The big decision now was do we risk going for a walk with Laura & Luke and risk getting caught in a bit of a storm, the decision was left with our amazing couple who said ‘yeah let’s do it’. Brilliant! Off we went. We’d spotted a couple of different and interesting backgrounds to use and just as we arrived at the location (which was only a 4 minute walk from the main hotel) the heavens opened and we had a mini tropical storm with some real thunder (which gave us an opportunity to whip out Nicoles special umbrella that she’d brought with her should such an occasion arise).
At this point I’m thinking (as Laura & Luke are under the cover of our location) I need to run and get the car to ferry them back but they wanted to walk in the rain back to the hotel. Well I have to say these guys absolutely rock and I award them best Bride & Groom of the year because they were just laughing walking back and it made for a great set of images.
I think Diane, Nicole & myself all got a bit soaked but Laura & Luke managed to stay reasonably dry (well Lauras dress may have got a bit wet at the bottom) and once we were all back in the hotel the weather was soon forgotten as the party got into full swing. We left after the first dance which in itself was brilliant and so suited to the couple, would’ve loved to have stayed and partied with everyone because all their family and friends were such lovely people.
Hope you enjoy the images and the highlights from the video!

A HUGE thanks to Nic for all your help on the day X

Ripley Castle Wedding – Emma & Gerrard June 3rd 2012

Weddingson August 2nd, 20122 Comments

Following the heatwave at the end of May we were straight back into winter season as temperatures dropped to 9 degrees and the onslaught of rain continued.
Emma and Gerrard didn’t let this spoil their wedding day though, from the word go the weather wasn’t going to spoil their special day!
Bride preparation commenced at The Boars Head in Ripley, which is perfect for getting ready as it’s only 2 minutes from the castle.
After the ceremony we still managed to get outside for a couple of photos and after weighing up the best options for the requested group photos, Emma & Gerrard decided to do the groups outside (but undercover) so we ferried folk back and forth with the use of a few umbrellas and working quickly (as always) managed to keep everyone dry!

More rain to follow…

Yorebridge House Wedding Photography

Lindsey & James May 27th – Yorebridge House Wedding Photography

These guys were so lucky with the weather, they had taken a bit of a gamble and planned a barbeque for their wedding breakfast, the risk payed off!! They had a perfect day, it really couldn’t have been better, combined with all their family and close friends they had amazing scenery, beautiful weather and a gorgeous venue.

We don’t normally take pictures during the wedding breakfast (for obvious reasons!), however seeing Lindsey & James seated at their own table out in the garden we just couldn’t resist it.
