Gemma & Rob, All Saints Church & Burn Hall, Huby, York
April! Anyone remember April? I do, it’s my birthday in April, we also had our summer in April and Gemma & Robs wedding fell slap bang in the middle of our summer – would you Adam and Eve it?
Gemma & Rob asked us to photograph their wedding back in 2010. We were so chuffed when we knew it was going to be a cracking day as we knew Gemma had been worried about the weather (as most brides do)! We’ve known Gemma & Rob for a few years having filmed Robs brothers wedding way back. It’s always great when you’re heading off to a wedding where you’ll know a few people and you also know they’re all going to be lovely.
The attention to detail was exceptional (we knew it would be) which is always ace as it adds so much to the photography, they’d even made tourist info style signs to direct people to the venue, how cool is that!
Here’s a few photos from the day, I still can’t believe we’re in July – oops.

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!

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!

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.

Alison & Glenn were married at Oulton Hall in Leeds on what was probably the hottest day this year. They were great fun to work with & we worked fast with their shots so they could get back to the cool reception drinks
During the reception the pianist (who’d set up outside in direct sunlight) started to turn a severe shade of red which we thought we should point out to him, I think he survived but I bet he felt that the next day!
Aaaaanyway here’s a few shots from the wedding.
