Well to be honest this pre wedding shoot had to go ahead regardless, as we’d already cancelled the first one due to

really bad weather, and the wedding was only 4 days away!

However, the day was brillaint & the venue was just gorgeous, and as I’ve known Nikki & Stu for a few years now I knew they’d be great!

It was my first time @ Langdale Chase, but I can’t wait to go back, which is lucky, as I’d be back in days πŸ˜‰

It was quite foggy when I arrived at Samlesbury Hotel for my 1st wedding of ’17, and to be honest didn’t clear all day –

was that going to stop this being a great wedding though? Hell no! πŸ˜‰

So the day started with bride, bridesmaid & mothers up in the bridal suite, getting ready πŸ™‚

wedding-charlotte-ste-samlesbury-hotel (161) copy 3wedding-charlotte-ste-samlesbury-hotel (154)wedding-charlotte-ste-samlesbury-hotel (172)

Once the bride was ready – just! ha, it was time to head downstairs for the ceremony.

wedding-charlotte-ste-samlesbury-hotel (69)wedding-charlotte-ste-samlesbury-hotel (239) copy 3wedding-charlotte-ste-samlesbury-hotel (255)

After the ceremony, and time spent at the bar, I grabbed the bride & groom, as although it was still foggy, it looked like rain,

so before that, we headed off outside.

Once the pictures of the bride & groom were done (for now!), we got the whole wedding party outside, for some group shots.

After a while, just before the wedding breakfast I decided we needed more shots in the grounds of Samlesbury Hotel,

I’m glad we did too, as we found some hidden areas and grabbed some gems! πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

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

This was my second wedding at the Mansion, Leeds, but my first on my own πŸ™‚

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

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

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

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 πŸ™‚

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.

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 πŸ™‚

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