Bagden Hall Wedding

I couldn't believe how cold it was on Saturday! The weather forecast had been great all week then they suddenly changed it on the Friday. After 18 years of filming weddings you would have thought by now that I would not pay any attention to the forecast, knowing how wrong they can be. Anyway, the cold didn't put Cassy and Daniel off and they were happy to smile for me all day. Cassy has done some modelling and she was so great to work with. Bagden Hall is a great venue for wedding photography and we made full use of the grounds and got some great shots. The day was rounded off by a fantastic choreographed dance the all the wedding party had learnt - it was just incredible to watch! Thank goodness they also had a wedding video to record this for them.

The Bridge Inn

Back to the Bridge Inn at Walshford just off the A1 near Wetherby for Anna & Damien's wedding. Anna & Damien had seen us at the Queens Hotel wedding fayre in Leeds last year and booked us for both their photography and video after a visit to the studio in Wakefield. Both Anna and Damien were great and were really relaxed throughout the day, which makes my job so much easier. I like to get a lot of variety into the shots and this is easy at the Bridge Inn as there are numerous different locations that can be used. One of the best shots at the Bridge is a night shot and we made the most of the fantastic night sky. Next week its Saturday at Bagden Hall and Sunday takes us to Oulton Hall.

Pre-Wedding Shoot

After a week-end with three weddings at Waterton Park we managed to find a break between the showers to take Danielle and Chris down to Newmillerdam for a pre-wedding shoot before their wedding next month at Oulton Hall. Danielle and Chris were great and soon got into the flow of it and certainly seemed to enjoy themselves. If they are this relaxed in front of the camera on their wedding day we will get some great shots at Oulton Hall.

Cutler's Hall, Sheffield

This week-end we had a journey down to Sheffield for the wedding of Sophia and Andrew. This was a new venue for us, and what a venue it is! The Cutler's Hall is in the heart of Sheffield, directly opposite the cathedral, the fairly unpretentious exterior gives no suggestion of the amazing architecture inside. Sophia originally comes from Malaysia, so I knew that this wedding would be both colourful and different. In the evening Sophia changed into a traditional dress, which necessitated a walk to the nearby Novotel in order to change, which gave us the opportunity to take some great "urban wedding" shots on the way. I love doing alternative types of shots like these. The Sheffield Eye was just too good to miss! Next week-end it's back to the Waterton Park hotel where we have two weddings two days in a row.
