Got to be honest, I was a little nervous for this pre wedding shoot, as it was for my friend, whose a brilliant photographer

in her own right, Miss Vivienne Edge & husband to be Adam.

Newby Hall was & is such a beautiful venue though, with so many place to go, with that, and t he fact that

Vivienne can’t take a bad photo, things were never going to be all bad! πŸ˜‰

Mille & Luke | St James’ Church | Seacroft | The Mercure Hotel | Leeds | June 4th 2016


Today, was another day, second shooting for Viv Edge.

My dad started, as usual! ha, with the guys – who all ‘enjoyed’ Β a few brandy’s beforehand!

A surprise wedding car was organised for Luke by Millie, to take him to church.

After the ceremony, we headed down to the Mercure Hotel, however just opposite is Golden Acre park, so we

popped into there for the bride & groom portraits πŸ˜‰

By this point too, the weather was just perfect & the park was full of places we could use.

We couldn’t not use the woods at the bottom of the hotel’s grounds, especially in gorgeous evening light πŸ™‚

Sophie & Anthony | Hayburn Barn | Richmond | June 1st 2016

Sophie & Anthony | Hayburn Barn | Richmond | June 1st 2016



The weather wasn’t looking too bright when I turned up to second shoot for Miss Viv Edge.

However, the venue was gorgeous, Hayburn Barn is a fairly new wedding venue in Gilling West, nr Richmond,

North Yorkshire – but I must say I approve! haha πŸ˜‰

As Anthony only wanted a few pictures, we both started with a bit of bridal prep, with the beautiful, Sophie.

Then we went to meet Anthony – *caution ladies – he’s topless below! haha

Even though it was a little bit cold & quite windy – Sophie & Anthony were’n going to let that ruin their

big day, so the ceremony was still held outside – I for one, am very glad it was, as the marquee is beautiful πŸ™‚

After the ceremony, we spend a few minutes with the bride & groom, before it started to spit.

Although the weather still wasn’t great, the rain had stopped, just enough to get the group shots done.

The it was time for the speeches πŸ˜‰

Philipa-Jo & Graham | Ferndale | Shadwell | May 28th 2016

Philipa-Jo & Graham | Ferndale | Shadwell | May 28th 2016


wedding-ferndale-shadwell-philipa-jo&graham (14)

Today I was joined by Miss Vivienne Edge.

The sun was shining when we arrived @ Ferndale, Pip’s family home.

Pip & Graham were married a few days before, but today was their ‘wedding’ day πŸ™‚

I must say the house & grounds looked amazing! Pip & family had done an amazing job! …

But 1st you had to get past this guard dog – Robyn! πŸ˜‰

wedding-ferndale-shadwell-philipa-jo&graham (15)

Pip had done pretty much everything her self, and all the little touches were brilliant.

Free beer also always helps I reckon! ha

So as Graham was still sorting things out in the morning, we both, myself & Viv were around at the house for the bridal prep.

Then it was a short walk into the garden, into a lovely little marquee, for the ‘wedding’.

Once the ceremony was finished, we had a walk around to catch some candid shots πŸ˜‰

Pip & Graham didn’t want too many group shots, but we grabbed the ones they wanted & then it was time to take the

bride & groom, for their photo shoot! LOL

Its lucky that Pip’s sister’s so talented, as she played (along with Pip’s brother too) throughout the day πŸ™‚

As well as canape’s during the day, later came the fresh fish & chip truck … And yes, it was as good as it looks!

wedding-ferndale-shadwell-philipa-jo&graham (489)

Some (well many) candid shots were taken throughput this very lovely, relaxed wedding.

wedding-ferndale-shadwell-philipa-jo&graham (401) copy 3

Garden games too!

Then it was time for Pip to change her dress, not necessary really for the cake cut, but for when we went just down the road,

to the bluebell fields .. And the light was gorgeous, so i’m very glad I convinced them! Ha

Later on, the wedding party had moved, as they were chasing the sun … some even decided to start a most gruesome drinking game!

A swing band, and once again Pip’s brother and sister played at night, before it was time for the bride & groom

to get up for their first dance.
