Rachel & Joshua – Ripley Castle Wedding Photography

Weddingson October 27th, 2012Comments Off

Rachel & Josh were married on August 23rd at Ripley Castle and it was a pleasure to be their wedding photographer, what a fab couple they are! We didn’t cover bride prep so started the day at Ripley finding Josh and the guys having a sneaky bottle of Black Sheep in the bar. I think Josh was relieved when I said they didn’t have to do anything but enjoy their beers and I’d catch up with them in a bit.

Rachel arrived at Ripley looking stunning and sporting one of our favourite stylish head pieces that make for lovely portrait shots and they day went from there with a lovely ceremony & reception.

All the guests and family were great fun and seemed to be having a fantastic time at Ripley Castle, with the usual attentive staff ensuring everything ran smooth as clockwork, hell even the weather played ball!

Here’s a selection of images from the day, the bouquet throw looked like it could’ve got out of hand but thankfully no injuries this time icon smile Rachel & Joshua   Ripley Castle Wedding Photography

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!

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.

Rudding Park Wedding (newly re-furbished!)

Weddingson March 2nd, 20123 Comments

Here we go! First wedding of the year was a Faye & Stephen at the newly refurbished Rudding Park, Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The Radcliffe Room has always been an impressive space but I have to say now it’s had some new colour on the walls, new lighting and audio it really looks stunning and brings it in to line with the rest of the hotel. It’s not just the Radcliffe that’s been decorated though, the other rooms have all had similar treatment and the reception area has been painted a lovely grey with new mirrors – I don’t think I’ve shut up about it since to be honest I’ve amazed myself how excited I’ve been about it.

It was great to have our first wedding of the year at a familiar venue, with staff we know (and get on well with) and of course a lovely bride and groom and their respective family and friends.
I checked the weather forecast on the Friday and it was rain in the morning which was due to clear by lunchtime with a bit of sun to follow and a drop in temperatures. Saturday morning arrived and I took a peak out of the window to see it absolutely chucking it down – eeek! But for once they got the forecast bang on and as we arrived at Rudding the sun was out and it was all looking good.

Faye and her bridesmaids were all pretty chilled and Faye was having the last bits of her make-up done by Sarah Aveyard which included what I was told was ‘fairy dust’ – OK, I’m not falling for that one girls but it did photograph quite well icon wink Rudding Park Wedding (newly re furbished!)

The stunning flowers were arranged by Colette who’s the talented in-house florist at Rudding and the Radcliffe room chairs were dressed by Tahlia.

The attention to detail by all the staff at Rudding and other vendors was obvious as everything looked absolutely perfect and extremely stylish which was clearly exactly how Faye had planned everything to look.

As expected everything ran smooth as clockwork as Faye & Stephen had worked with us by switching the format of the day around slightly to ensure we got the best use of available light (don’t worry, this wasn’t changed on the day, it was all planned months in advance) so after the Civil Ceremony they had a drinks reception with a few group shots and some photo’s around the hotel followed by a blessing in the chapel as the light was starting to disappear. It actually worked perfectly having the blessing a little later as it was a little more atmospheric with the candles in the chapel.

After their wedding breakfast their was a little surprise for Faye as a secret firework display had been arranged by Ferrensby Fireworks (nice to see you all again guys – how cold was it out there?) which then lead nicely into cutting of the cake and first dance.
