I was absolutely thrilled when bride Claire got in touch with me a few months ago. I met her at Jenny’s wedding back in September, and it was now her turn to plan her wedding. Chris & Claire have been together for 12 years already (wow!)  so once Chris proposed, they decided they wanted to get married as soon as possible, so they opted for a Spring wedding.

They were thrilled to find their perfect wedding venue, Priory Cottages near Wetherby  which was perfect for their laid back but stylish wedding. This place is simply beautiful – It is in a courtyard layout with self-catering cottages laid out around the green square, and is a mix of rustic buildings with a modern finish. And the barn upstairs – wow, and the twinkly lights, everywhere!!! I love twinkly lights!

They picked the perfect day weather-wise for their wedding, every other day around it there were storms, fog, rain, but no, on their special day, 29th March 2014, the sun shone and the sky was blue. It was almost we pressed fast forward to summer.

The flowers for the wedding were all from Paperwhite Flowers in nearby Harrogate. They were stunning and smelled amazing too! The bride wore ‘Sian’ shoes from Freya Rose in London.

 Claire had her close friend, Jenny as her only adult bridesmaid, and 5 adorable flower girls who were extremely happy, cute, and so well behaved all day! They even did some star jumps on demand outside the church.

Emily Hawkes styled Claire’s hair in a natural looking style with real flowers in the background, perfect!

When we arrived at St Edwards Catholic Church in Clifford, Chris and his ushers were doing a marvellous job of greeting the guests, who were all enjoying the sunshine. There was a choir right up in the rafters, I went to go and get a photograph and had to wind myself up the smallest spiral staircase right up the clock tower………. what an experience!

The ceremony was a traditional catholic service and included some beautiful hymns sung by the choir. Claire wore a gorgeous full length silk Jenny Packham wedding dress from Poppy Bridal with flower detail on the waist. The couple smiled all the way through the ceremony.

After the ceremony, a fabulous double decker vintage red bus from the Yorkshire Heritage Bus Company  was the surprise transport back to the venue. So happy I got to jump on to take some photos of the guests and the couple on the way back.

On arrival, guests were treated to some fab canapes (Including Yorkshire puddings!) from Taste Cuisine, who did the catering for the whole wedding. After some group and couples photographs around the grounds, everyone gathered for the confetti shot, throwing it from the balcony inside, before going in to the marquee setting for the wedding breakfast.

The flowergirls dresses were from Monsoon, and tied in very nicely with Jenny’s Dessy bridesmaid dress. The menswear was hired from Slaters.

The best man, Craig surprised everyone by putting up a projector for his speech, to showcase a film he’d made about how Claire & Chris met at university, and showing the places they went together when they first started dating. It was both funny and touching. Turns out that him and his wife drove to Sunderland at 6am the Sunday before from down South, in order to make this film as they just came up with the idea. What a top guy! There were so many laughs which I loved to capture on camera.

The menus and other stationery came from Olive Wedding Stationery  and looked fabulous.

Claire’s Mum & Uncle created the favours which were little jars of mango chutney and piccalilli which went down a storm.

The cake pops came from Cake Pops Ville and looked fabulous, and the bride and groom chose an alternative cheese stack with a very country themed mice topper.

It was a bit of a cloudy and potentially rainy day when I met up with Katie & Connell for their pre-wedding shoot at Slaley Hall, near Hexham, but that didn’t stop us having lots of giggles. The couple got engaged almost 12 months to the day, whilst they were staying at Slaley Hall , so were thrilled at the idea of having their pre-wedding shoot there as it holds a special place in their heart. Many thanks to the staff who kindly let us use the grounds for the shoot.

Catherine & Nikki are getting married at Matfen Hall in late Spring. We met up at Jesmond Dene for some relaxed portraits and to chat more about their upcoming wedding!

We had lots of giggles and managed to dodge most of the raindrops. Hopefully there will be more sunshine on their wedding day:-)

Here are a few highlights of the pre-wedding shoot:

I met Kaye and Dan almost a couple of years ago as guests at another wedding, and was thrilled they stayed in touch and wanted me to be their wedding photographer.

Having been to so many friends weddings over the last few years, Kaye & Dan were thrilled it was finally their turn to have their special day, along with their lovely son, Alfie to share the celebrations.

They chose to have an intimate wedding with around 40 guests, at the fabulous Lumley Castle near Chester-le-Street. The castle is a very unique hotel, it was originally built in 1400’s and the sense of history & grandeur can be seen throughout.

Carli from The Big Event  provided hair & make up services for Kaye, who looked stunning! Kaye’s wedding dress was “Helen’ by Diane Harbridge .

They tied the knot in the  Scarborough Room, followed by drinks outside, and their reception in the extremely impressive Baron’s Hall.

Kaye’s brother walked her down the aisle and looked extremely proud to do so.

The couple chose to have several readings and a candle lighting ceremony during their wedding ceremony, making it extremely personal and they also giggled their way through some part!

After the ceremony we took some time to do some bride & groom and group photographs, I absolutely loved the cherry blossom tree in front of the castle so this featured in quite of few of their photographs.

Back in early December I had the opportunity to visit London to see some friends. I’ve been a fan of Harry Potter since the books first came out, and love all the films, so a trip to the Warner Brother’s Studio Tour was a must!!

First I stopped off in Yorkshire to see my family and WOW this sunset was right outside their front door, these photos are hardly edited at all this is basically what the sky looked like, it was amazing. I have never run as fast to get out the door with my camera.

We also visited the famous Choccywoccydoodah‘s London shop & cafe near Carnaby Street. It was so much fun to visit somewhere i’ve seen a lot on TV and also sample their chocolate. We had a tasting plate (Which we saw some of the customers having one each of) but even between two, it was FAR too big and we had to take some home….

What can I say about “Harry Potter Land” as I called it. WOW. It was absolutely amazing. It exceeded every expectation I had. I would go back there tomorrow!! It felt so fantastic to get to walk around ‘Hogwarts’ in the Great Hall and when you see behind the scenes how much work goes into everything it is just mind blowing! Here are a few highlights…

The trip was so much fun I’ve decided I want to go back to London again this year in early December to spend more time at Winter Wonderland… I would also love to shoot a wedding or pre-wedding shoot in London so if you know anyone who may be interested in having a slightly mad Northerner shoot their wedding please do drop me a line (Website here)  !!
