Ripley Castle Wedding

Weddingson May 31st, 2011Comments Off

We photographed Amanda and Ben’s wedding in March at Ripley Church followed by Ripley Castle (it is wonderful when the reception venue is so near the church as it saves people getting lost en-route) which was a wedding we’d been looking forward to since we first met the couple (and Amanda’s parents) at the UK Wedding show in Harrogate back in September 2009.

On the day we didn’t have the best of weather which is something we’re quite used to dealing with although it was nice when the lovely people from Superior Motor Car Company were on hand with umbrellas, even holding one over my head whilst I took a few shots and completed the list of group photographs – usually I just stand in the rain getting soaked.

The beautiful flowers were by Helen James Flowers of Harrogate who were there to swiftly move displays from the church to the reception, as usual the staff at Ripley Castle were brilliant and the food looked superb, all in all the weather didn’t put the dampeners on things, not even the fantastic firework display by Ferrensby Fireworks!

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.

Crathorne Hall Wedding

Ruth & Jonathan’s Wedding September 11th 2010

This was one of the last hot summer days we had last year, it now seems like a long distant memory!

Anyway, this was also the first time we’d photographed a wedding at Crathorne Hall, Yarm in North Yorkshire.

Ruth was getting ready at home but wanted to stop half way to the venue as there was a lovely cow field that had a fantastic view of Crathorne Hall in the distance.

Music on the day was provided by The Event Music Company (part of the Yorkshire Wedding Collective), flowers were supplied by Carl Banks and the theme for the table plan was based around a selection TV/Movie Stars!

Rudding Park Wedding

Weddingson February 1st, 2011Comments Off

Hayley and Jonathan were married last August at the Church in Burley in Wharfedale. Quite often we head over the border into West Yorkshire and then back into North Yorkshire for the reception which in this case was at Rudding Park Hotel, one of the top wedding venues in our region. As North Yorkshire photographers we’re often asked if we travel to X or can cover a wedding outside of the Yorkshire region, the answer to that one is yes, the furthest we’ve travelled to a wedding is Tanga in Tanzania, so a church in Leeds isn’t a problem!

We’d already spoken with Hayley & Jonathan about photography in the church who said they’d asked the vicar and there was some restriction but we’d need to discuss it on the day, as it happened we could take photographs on arrival, one from the back and photos of signing the register. I’ll post in more detail a bit of a ‘heads up’ on weddings, churches and photography next week as I’ve been meaning to do that for a while now.

Anyway, after the wedding the driver of the wedding car opened a bottle of Champagne for the couple and we all set off to Rudding Park in the lovely sunshine.

The wedding breakfast was to be held in the Radcliffe Room which looked stunning with lovely table settings, seat covers and pink as the colour scheme, I can’t tell you how well pink works for weddings, it’s one of our favourite colours! Another little detail in the Radcliffe is the large pillars which look superb with the fairy lights – Top tip – if you’re having this room for your wedding always have the fairy lights, you heard it here first icon wink Rudding Park Wedding
