It’s always nice to see your work published, either in print, or on another website 🙂

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! 🙂

PRE WEDDING | JEN & ANDY | ROUNDHAY PARK | LEEDS | OCTOBER 29TH 2016

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.

First dance was just after cake cutting, but then it was back outside to use the garden pavilion for a few night images 🙂

I must say, Farington Lodge always looks lovely in autumn, so I was glad the weather was playing ball

as I arrived, which made the lodge looks splendid 🙂

After taking a few shots of the gorgeous grounds, it was off inside to say hello to Pam & her bridesmaids 🙂

wedding-pamela-jason-farington-lodge-313-copy-3 wedding-pamela-jason-farington-lodge-334

Myself, Pam & Jason, then ventured around the grounds of Farington Lodge, to take a few pictures of the lovely couple.

I’ve been to Farington Lodge a few times, since they added the Garden Pavilion, and always had the shot I wanted in mind,

well luckily, the conditions were just about perfect to pull it off @ Pam & Jason’s wedding 🙂

I arrived at Amanda’s mum & dad’s house, and I must say the weather wasn’t brilliant, however, as to paraphrase the above,

which was coincidentally was wrote on the wall of Brook House Hotel – You’ve just gotta make the most of it & rock your

wedding anyway! Which we did!

With Dave nearby, we managed to nip round to see him & the groomsmen too 🙂

wedding-brook-house-hotel-amanda-david-131-copy-3wedding-brook-house-hotel-amanda-david-30

It was then time to drive just round the corner, to the local church, St John’s.

wedding-brook-house-hotel-amanda-david-179-copy-3

After the ceremony, It was another short drive to Brook House Hotel.

The rain was still coming down heavy, but Brook House was decorated so beautifully, it just didn’t matter 🙂

wedding-brook-house-hotel-amanda-david-266-copy-2

There was a small covering out the back, where we did what we could with the group shots –

must say though, I really do like the results.

wedding-brook-house-hotel-amanda-david-309-copy-3

Time fro the wedding breakfast, but first the speeches.

wedding-brook-house-hotel-amanda-david-396-copy-3

I was a little nervous at this point that we hadn’t got any images of Amanda & Dave together, so we ventured out

after the wedding breakfast – but after about 5 mins, the rain stopped anyway! 🙂

I’ve known Amanda since I was younger, as I use to hang around with her brother, but it was
