Anne & Mike's Richmond, North Yorkshire Wedding Blog.

Welcome all to our latest blog.

So, what can we say about Anne & Mike apart from what a fantastic laid back couple they are. Anne & Mike originally got in touch with us after seeing our "Wedding Photographers Shoot Their Own Wedding" blog on Britains top wedding blog "Brides Up North" and after a short Skype call they decided to book us their and then which was fantastic. Our first real life meeting though was for their pre-wedding shoot where they made the trip down from Middlesborough. From the off we knew they were a great couple and the pre-shoot ended in having a pint at the local pub! After hearing more about their day we were totally excited to be part of it and knew we would be left to our own devices to do what we do best.

So, the big day came and we set off for the one hour thirty minute journey up to Richmond. We were to meet at the Castle House B&B right in the centre to start the bridal preps. As we arrived the bridal party were finishing their breakfast and preparing for the day ahead. In great spirits and to a warm welcome we proceeded to get some great shots.

After a while it was time to head over to the church where they were to be married. This was only a short distance away and we were met by Mike and his Groomsmen who were also very warm welcoming and ready to get some shots. With guests also arriving and getting them all so important candid shots it was time for the ceremony which went ace followed by some group shots outside.

After this we headed over to Mike's parents house where they had a huge marquee set up in the back field. They had chosen an amazing rustic/vintage feel to their decorations and people relaxed for the rest of the afternoon. 

After speeches and more relaxing it was time to cut the cake, get on with the first dance and really get the party started.

We can't thank Anne and Mike enough for being so cool with us an hopefully see you both in the future.

Big thanks and big congrats to the both of you.

Well to say we are excited about putting this blog out there is an understatement. We had such a fantastic day shooting Emily and Wes's wedding photography at Ringwood Hall in Chesterfield.

The day started at Ringwood Hall where Emily, her girls and mother were getting ready. Emily as usual was totally chilled and no sign of nerves appeared to be present. As the bridal prep room was quite full we had full permission to take her wedding dress outside to make sure we got the best shots possible and we think they look ace! Also we got their two amazing little boys outside for a couple of shots too. So cute!!!

Not after long Wes arrived with his groomsmen and we headed straight to the back gardens to get their shots. Pretty much up for anything we had a great chance to get some cool photography. Wes was full of beans and ready for a great day.

As guests arrived they made their way through to the Ringwood suite, a gorgeous ornate room with plenty of room for both of us to shoot with great freedom. A quick glance between Wes and the mother of the bride before Emily made her entrance looking stunning.

After a beautiful ceremony all the guest headed down to the marquee for group shots and drinks. We had the chance before the rain to head off to get some shots of the bride and groom on their own which turned out brill.

After the wedding breakfast and speeches it was time to party and totally relax for the rest of the evening. Such a great day with some fantastic wedding photography.

Massive thanks to Emily, Wes and all their family and friends for what was a perfect day for all.

Big congratulations.

From what had been a long time in the planning, Natalie & Dan's big day was finally here. It seems such a long time ago since Natalie & Dan came to our Elsecar studio and booked with us. From the start they were and have been fantastic to work with, sharing their ideas and keeping us up to date with new developments.

The day had arrived and Natalie & Dan had very kindly booked us a hotel room for the night before as we had an early start so didn't like to risk the travel over. We arrived at Natalie's mums house to smiles and excitement. Natalie's bridesmaids were having their hair and make-up done as we were shown to the most amazing room for some detail shots of the dress and shoes.

After getting all the images we needed we had to shoot straight over to the Owen House Wedding Barn to meet with Dan and his best men which was around 20 minutes away. 

We first met with Dan who was just about ready with 3 shots of Japanese whisky to start the days celebrations and his gift of a pocket watch each for his best men. This was our first meeting with his groomsmen but we knew they would be ace and willing to help us through the day.

As guests were being ushered into the barn ceremony room, Natalie wasn't far behind in the most beautiful car flanked by her girls, mum and dad.

The ceremony was fantastic and also was followed by a blessing before we all gathered in a back quirky undercover barn for their group shots. Until this point the weather had been pretty bad with rain most of the day but the clouds started to clear and made way for some amazing sun shots which Natalie & Dan were total naturals.

After their wedding breakfast and speeches the rest of the evening followed with more fun, a pizza cart, hotdog caravan and an amazing band who got everyone dancing.

We just want to say what a fantastic day we had and again how brilliant their friends and family were with us.

Massive congratulations to you both.

Holly & John's Bempton Church / Sledmere House Wedding Photography Blog.

We first met Holly & John last year when they visited our Elsecar Heritage Centre studio to discuss more about their big day. We instantly hit it off and knew we would be great to shoot their day and when they confirmed we were pretty excited. Their wedding was to take place at Bempton Church in East Yorkshire then a trip to the beach on the north side of Bridlington and to finally finish at Sledmere House in Driffield, East Yorkshire.

Their date soon came around and we found ourselves round at Holly's parents house in Bempton getting ready for the bridal preps. As we arrived we had a great welcome from both Holly, her bridesmaids and parents which was great and put us totally at ease. Everyone was in great spirits and no nerves seemed to be showing at all.

We manage to take Holly's dress and the bridesmaids dresses outside and hung them on a tree to get some super cool shots as well as some hair and make-up shots inside the house. After making sure we had all the shots we needed it was time to drive the short distance (about 20 seconds) to Bempton Church to get some groom photography.

As with the girls, John and his groomsmen were as cool as anything and ready for ceremony to get started. We managed to get some great shots of the boys and guest arrivals while we waited for Holly to arrive.

The ceremony went perfectly and as we had probably the most beautiful sunny day of the year we cracked on with the group images and headed down the north side of Bridlington to make the most of an amazing beach shoot.

Once there we were told about the most amazing colourful beach huts we could incorporate into our shots as well as sea and beautiful surroundings. After numerous jumping, running and cool shots in front of the huts we needed to head over to Sledmere House front for a couple more shots then fish and chips for their wedding breakfast.

As always Sledmere House looked stunning and Holly & John had made the barn look amazing. The evening went into full swing and with an arrival of more evening guests it was sure to be an amazing night.

We left Holly & John late in the night in knowledge that we had some amazing wedding photography for them and we can't thank them enough for making us feel so welcome all day. Their family & friends were amazing and added to what was a fantastic day.

Big big thanks again and a massive congratulations.
