Another weekend, another wedding ๐Ÿ˜‰

for the piccys ๐Ÿ˜‰

FIONA & ANDY | IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY CHURCH | LEEDS | THE BRIDGE | WETHERBY | MAY 30TH 2015

Fiona & Andy (125)

It was another sunny wedding the other day, again ย second shooting for Viv Edge.

The ceremony was to be held at the Immaculate Heart of Mary church in Leeds, then off to The Bridge Hotel in Wetherby,

but before then I was asked to do a bit of groom prep!

Love doing the groom prep & today was certainly no exception – laugh a minute! ๐Ÿ™‚

The lads were already mostly ready @ 9 when I arrived, but they did have a little surprise for Andy from Fiona planned –

if they could sort out the tech! ha

They sat down to watch a lovely DVD from Fiona to Andy, telling him about a surprise limo & casino for the wedding, after all

it was Vegas themed for the honeymoon ๐Ÿ™‚

The ceremony was at midday, and was a lovely little affair, followed by a few group shots on the grounds of the church.

After the ceremony it was a bit of a drive to The Bridge, but with the sun still shining it wasn’t too much hassle! ๐Ÿ˜‰

After bobbing around shooting some candids, we had some time with the bride & groom, and before the bride dashed in for the wedding breakfast,

we managed to grab a shot outside The Bridge – She had that smile ALL day! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh and the casino was in full flow just after too!

So this was my second time assisting Lauren Twigg, and coincidently the second time at Rogerthorpe Manor too ๐Ÿ™‚

Before Rogerthorpe though, was the ceremony of Sharifa & Carl at St Lukes Church in Sharlston.

Lauren just wanted me to “buzz” round taking some shots where & when I could, whilst assisting her & her dad,

the videographer for the day.

Here are a few favourites from the day.

PS I wasn’t asked to shoot speeches – I wasn’t needed! haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Sophia was the star of the show – She just loved the limelight ๐Ÿ™‚

Ive been lucky enough to photograph Jamie from the veryย beginning,

well from hisย mum’sย maternity shoot, to newborn to this ๐Ÿ™‚

Jamie was 8 months old & boy how the time has flown! …..

He’s always been a little star, each time, but with those eyes, I’m guessing he’ll be a star from here on in! ๐Ÿ™‚

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY | MOLLY | ALICE | APRIL | 2015

Last week was another “baby” day, as I had 2 newborns in the studio ๐Ÿ™‚

Both were daughters of good friends of mine – So no pressure!

The day started off with Molly, who despite being a bit of a tinker, did finally settle

& we managed getting some great shots ๐Ÿ™‚

After Molly, came newborn, Alice, who was a little more subdued ๐Ÿ™‚

I had an image in mind with Alice, calling it “Alice In Wonderland”.

See the ‘green’ image below, please note however, that Alice never left the studio for this shot ๐Ÿ™‚

PRE WEDDING | KIRSTY & MARTIN | WORDEN PARK | LEYLAND APRIL 2015

The first couple of dates we had booked in for this pre wedding engagement shoot, were unfortunately rained off,

which meant it was leaving it a little later than ideally we had planned for this shoot – A week before the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

However, after a relatively nervous start, Kirsty & Martin relaxed into it & we managed to get some great shots.
