NEWBORN | TODDLER PHOTOGRAPHY | RORY & LUKE | JANUARY 2017

I’ve known Rachel & Andrew for a few years now, ever since I photographed their wedding, and their

first born, Luke, a few years ago.

we had this shoot organised for when Rory was a little bit younger, but unfortunately my car broke down,

so we arranged this shoot, when Rory was a little bit older than the ‘usual’ newborn, so we got what we could,

but I am happy with the result 🙂

It was a cold and frosty morning when I arrived at The Devonshire Arms, for the wedding of Charlotte & Thom,

along with Mrs Vivienne Myers.

Some of the lads went for a pre wedding walk, so thought we’d capture this first 🙂

Then it was off into a much warmer climate to photograph the beautiful Charlotte & her bridesmaids & man! 😉

After they were all ready, we headed to the ceremony room 🙂

Then it was off outside for the group shots.

Right after the speeches we braced the cold once more, for some sparklers & evening photos.

Then it was time for cake cutting & a fabulous first dance.

This was my second wedding at the Mansion, Leeds, but my first on my own 🙂

It’s a lovely venue, situated in Roundhay Park.

It was a lot colder today, than the last time I photographed a wedding here, but as long as the rain stayed away – we’d be good! ha

I arrived early to meet & photograph Jen & her bridesmaids.

Once Andy arrived at The Mansion, I popped downstairs to grab a few shots of the groom 🙂wedding-the-mansion-leeds-jen-andy-211wedding-the-mansion-leeds-jen-andy-207

It was still dry when the ceremony had finished, so we headed outside for the group shots.

After the group shots, it was time to take the bride & groom around Roundhay Park for some shots of them two 🙂

Here are a few places where you can find my work, other than here, rbattersbyphotography.co.uk or Facebook.

The first place you can find me (as of 15/11/16) is the front page of a brilliant wedding venue – Oaklands.

I was lucky enough to photograph a good friend of mine’s wedding earlier in the year – another photographer to be exact.

Her wedding, firstly made it into the pages of the Daily Mail & then to a full double page spread of Yorkshire Bride …..

Happy is an understatement on the last one!!

Although these aren’t technically ‘published’ images – The photo of Singleton Lodge on these pages IS mine!

Its always nice to see you pictures being used to promote a wedding venue & I realise that Trip Advisor & Late Rooms can’t

be held responsible if someone steals my image & uses it as theirs, but just thought i’d let people know that if you see this image of

Singleton Lodge Hotel, then its mine – taken on an iphone of all things, during the wedding breakfast! 🙂

Wedding season is drawing to a close, but I’ve still got a few more fabulous weddings left 🙂

Today, I was back second dhooting for Vivienne Edge @ Lazaat near Hull.

It was a beautiful, if a little cold, autumnal day :).

The day started at the brides house, along with all her bridesmaids, getting ready.

wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-26-copy-3

After a few hours, it was time for me to get to Lazaat to meet, Andy, his dad & brother.

wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-49

You’ll have to admit, he scrubbed up well 🙂

dsc04641wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-62 wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-68wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-54

The bride chose a wonderful old Jag for her bridal car, and the sun was just perfect as she arrived.

wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-78wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-79

The ceremony was a lovely affair.

Unfortunately, as is often the case in the good ol’ UK, by the time the ceremony was over it had started pouring down,

however, as Charlee & Andy didn’t want too many group shots, we were able to do these under cover.

wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-107

We even managed to start the bride & groom portraits under the same cover, as the sun looked amazing.

dsc04815g dsc04823wedding-lazaat-charlee-andy-106

The rain stopped, so it was time to quickly pop outside with Charlee & Andy.

We headed inside to defrost, but it was time for the speeches anyway, so all was good 🙂

Cake cutting was followed by the first dance, then a few hours later, it was time for fireworks!

Cuerden Valley is fast becoming my go to place for local pre wedding shoots, as come

winter, spring, summer or autumn, it always looks great 🙂 It is however becoming tricky to source new places for

pictures, but I think I managed to get some great shots of Charlotte & Ste today – It helped that it was a laugh a minute! 🙂

So today I travelled through rain & wind, to sunny (ish) Leeds, for the pre wedding shoot of Jen & Andy.

They’re getting married in a few weeks at The Mansion, which is in the grounds of Roundhay Park, so thought we’d

meet there for a venture around the area … whilst making the most of the beautiful autumnal colours 🙂

wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-30

Well I must say it was nice to be back at Hazlewood Castle today. I’ve done quite a few photoshoots here, but it was

the first time I have done a wedding here 🙂

It was a great start to the day, second shooting for Vivienne Edge, as the sun was shining 🙂

wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-46

I met Viv, who was in the bridal suite, with Sarah & her bridesmaids.

wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-34wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-76-copy-3wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-47

It was then time to nip to see Matt 🙂

wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-69

It was a lovely little ceremony within Hazlewood Castle.

wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-86-copy-3

As the weather was still great, we decided to take everyone outside for some group shots & I must say, the

light was just perfect! 🙂

We managed to get Sarah & Matt away for a few shots, using the fabulous grounds of Hazlewood Castle.

It was then time for the wedding breakfast, as the speeches were after.

However, as the sun was fading & the light was gorgeous, we grabbed the bride & groom from their meal, who to be honest didn’t

know what we were doing taking them down a dirty little pathway, but were SO pleased we did! 🙂

wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-173 wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-174dsc03708-2wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-180

Then it was speeches time.

Hazlewood Castle has a little chapel too, were Sarah & Matt decided to have a little blessing after the meal.

wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-281-copy-3 wedding-hazlewood-castle-sarah-matt-301
