Aldwark Manor wedding photography enquiries are always a pleasure, and the one for the wedding of Sarah and Neil was no exception. The wedding ceremony was at St Stephen’s church, Aldwark followed by a reception at the renowned Aldwark Manor hotel.

 

Sarah & Neil, as all wedding couples, had put a lot of time and effort into planning their special day. Consequently, as their chosen wedding photographer, I was delighted with the endless photo opportunities.

 

Aldwark Manor wedding photography – bridal preparations

Sarah and her two lovely bridesmaids had stayed overnight at Aldwark Manor, and were happy to pose for some “prep” photos as soon as I arrived.

The pre-wedding atmosphere was of excitement and laughter as the girls got ready. Sarah’s shoes were white satin, embellished with a bow of pearls.

She also had a bridal garter, hand made to match her wedding dress.

They were soon joined by Sarah’s mum, Dawn, and the cute little flower girl, Charlotte, and page boy Alfie, and his brother Riley.

Sarah’s father Anthony arrived, bringing a special gift for his daughter, a pair of China ring boxes. This is an old wedding tradition in Germany, where he now lives.

Wedding co-ordinator Kim led the happy couple through to the terrace, where all their guests were assembled. A romantic ambiance was provided by the gently trickling fountain as Sarah and Neil were greeted by their guests.

Guests had bags of petal confetti, and formed a corridor for Neil and Sarah to pass through, with everyone cheering. What beautiful wedding photos this made, with the pastel petals fluttering in the gentle summer air.

Set in the water garden, surrounded by the lawns and shrubbery, this was an ideal place for family photos. No wedding is complete without the family line ups, as a memento of the wedding day. Guests were able to watch from the terrace, whilst the Aldwark Manor staff ensured that everyone had drinks and canapes.

Sarah and Neil were a lovely wedding couple and it was a real pleasure to take their wedding photographs. We had so much fun as we took advantage of the hotel’s grounds to create some beautiful wedding photographs.

Aldwark Manor, with its rolling lawns and wooded areas provided excellent photo opportunities for our smiling bride and groom. Both were eager to make the most of the late afternoon sunshine, with some more photos after the reception.

The white heather wedding venue Scunthorpe was the scene of Claire and Stuart’s wedding on Friday. A feature of the wedding was a big red london bus.

Claire and her bridesmaids stayed at the white heather the evening before the wedding in the spacious suite,

where there was ample room for them all to prepare for the wedding.

Furthermore, the light and airy rooms were ideal for bridal make-up and hair preparations.

The bridegroom, Stuart, arrived at the white heather wedding venue Scunthorpe

near Caenby Corner. bright and early, therefore had plenty of opportunity to chat to their guests before the wedding ceremony.

Claire and Stuart’s friends and family were gathered together at the white heather wedding venue Scunthorpe,

to witness this happy occasion.

All went extremely well from Claire’s entrance, to the exchanging of their vows and rings,

through to their first kiss, hence all of the happy smiles plus the odd tear of pride and joy.

Almost all of the wedding guests assembled at the front of the white heather wedding venue Scunthorpe 

to cheer, as Claire and Stuart “ran the gauntlet” through the colourful confetti.

Claire and Stuart hired a vintage double decker bus for their wedding guests.

The driver was delighted to welcome us all on board for some colourful wedding photos.

We were quite lucky weather wise, as the showers stopped for long enough to allow

the guests to get together and have a group photo from above.

Here’s a few “sneak peek’s” of the happy couple together in-between the showers in the well tended landscaped grounds

of the white heather wedding venue Scunthorpe.

To add to Claire and Stuart’s wedding day at the white heather wedding venue Scunthorpe,

 there was a very good magician, John Morton who mystified the wedding guests with his sleight of hand,

plus the amusing skills of a caricature sketch artist.

The traditional “cutting of the cake” followed the wedding breakfast,

leading smoothly into the first dance.

As Claire and Stuart’s wedding day at the white heather wedding venue Scunthorpe,

eased into the night, everyone enjoyed the music and merriment of the wedding celebrations.

A novel addition to the wedding day transport was in evidence in the form of a bicycle,

sporting Claire and Stuart’s names along the cross bar.

Finally all that remains is to wish Claire & Stuart a long and happy life together. 

Thank you for a lovely day.

The Dower House, Knaresborough was the picturesque setting for Amanda & Ross’s wedding. This well established hotel, situated between Knaresborough & Harrogate has long been a popular venue for Yorkshire weddings.

The Dower House can cater for large or small weddings in its various rooms and as a result it is always in popular demand. Amanda & Ross were delighted therefore when they met with Jonathan (the wedding co-ordinator) and found that their date was available.

Portrait photography – 21st birthday party for Elijah.

Congratulations to Elijah (Eli) Shaw on his recent 21st birthday. We were delighted when Eli’s parents, Bob and Karen asked if we could attend Eli’s 21st birthday party and take some photos for them as a lasting memento of this important family occasion.
 
Portrait photography - 21st birthday party 15
 
Bob and Karen we’re hosting a party at their home in Wakefield, and had invited family and friends to help Eli celebrate his special birthday in style. Portrait photography is always fun at birthday parties, and especially so when we already knew many of the family from Julie and Martin’s wedding nearly two years ago.
 
Portrait photography - 21st birthday party
 
We arrived early so that we could take some special relaxed portraits before all the guests arrived.

Proud parents Bob and Karen had portrait photos taken with Eli in their garden, and then dashed back to finish last minute preparations whilst we took some photos of Eli and his girlfriend Lauren.

Karen had prepared a beautiful feast for their party guests, and Bob was on ‘champagne’ duty, ensuring that everyone had a plentiful supply of drink.

They had ordered a very special personalised birthday cake for Eli, knowing his love of DJ-ing, which made a fantastic centrepiece to the heavenly sweet table, surrounded by macaroons, cream scones, and a mountainous dish of fresh raspberries and strawberries.
 
Portrait photography - 21st birthday party 7
 
Karen had explained that she & Bob wanted to ensure that they had some professional photos for both themselves and Eli to keep.
As parents they wanted to ensure that their son had a wonderful 21st birthday party, and wanted to make sure that they all had professional pictures as keepsakes.

Bob & Karen had requested family portraits with Bob’s family and with Karen’s, as well as everyone together.

After returning from their honeymoon in the Lake District, Emily & Kevin have now seen their wedding photographs, and are delighted with them, so I am pleased to share some more of their favourites.

wedding photographer harrogate

As I mentioned in a previous blog, Emily & Kevin were married at All Saints Church, in Kirk Deighton on 1st April.

wedding photographer harrogate 03

Many members of Kevin’s family have been married at this church, and Kevin was christened there, so Emily agreed that it was the perfect place for their wedding.

wedding photographer harrogate 04

Daffodils were blooming in the churchyard, making the ancient church a very pretty location.

Emily & her bridesmaids set off from the Rudding Park Hotel, after a morning of preparations and excitement. All four bridesmaids wore long gowns in a pretty pastel blue colour, along with matching pashminas which proved a very welcome addition against the chilly wind.

wedding photographer harrogate 02

Little flower girl, Lillie-Mae was dressed in a pretty cream lace dress, with a warm furry bolero.

wedding photographer harrogate 05

Emily wore a beautiful gown with a lace overlay, and a matching lace bolero. Her bouquet featured very pale pink roses along with carnations, lisianthus and muscari.

The church was full of family and friends, some had travelled long distances (from Nottingham, Lincolnshire and Carlisle) to witness this happy event.

Sadly it was a wee bit too blustery to take photos outside after the ceremony, but we did manage a couple of group shots before rain stopped play!

The Reverend Myra Shackley kindly allowed us to go back into the church to take a few photos inside, whilst waiting for the cars to take everyone to the reception.

After a brief detour to The Rudding Park Hotel, where we were able to take some more stunning photos, we proceeded to the Travellers Rest, Crimple, near Harrogate, where family & friends were already in the party spirit.

The marquee was beautifully set out, and Emily had thoughtfully printed out everyone’s menu choice on the tables.
Kevin, and his father, Keith had skilfully crafted all the table numbers from wood, with tea lights in, which were very unusual.

Also on the theme of wood, Emily & Kevin had joiner’s pencils printed with their names and wedding date on as guest favours.

wedding photographer harrogate 10

The guests also were treated to a bag of delicious Harrogate chocolates. Which most people saved for later, as they were so full after the delicious meal.

Still on the wood theme was the wedding cake, fashioned as pieces of wood and adorned with flowers.

So all in all, a fabulous day with a lovely couple…RESULT!
