Summer Weddings Flashback Part 2.

Last week I blogged part one of my Summer Flashback feature, looking back at Weddings I shot over the summer months of June, July & August 2013.
This week part two looks at me on the road shooting Weddings all over the north of England from The Lakes to West Yorkshire.

Katie & James Tait, North Yorkshire, 3rd August:
Katie & James were married at The Grove Methodist Church in Horsforth before moving on to the grand surroundings at Ripley Castle. This was a great location and I was able to shoot beautiful scenes with Katie & James all around the castles grounds in the beaming sunshine of mid summer. On the evening a huge party awaited at the castle with live music and plenty of dancing to finish off the day.

Kelly & Dean Smith, Newmillerdam Country Park, 10th August:
Kelly & Dean were married at Hotel St.Pierre just round the corner from the scenic location of Newmillerdam Country Park. The newly-wed couple took a walk alongside the lake with Bridesmaids and Ushers in tow to get a unique collection of photographs. Although Kelly's feet nearly fell off due to all the walking in heels we got some really great shots through the park, ones that will long outlast the memory of her soar feet!

Charlotte & Martin Scotson, The Lake District, 27th August:
Charlotte & Martin choose New House Farm in Lorton as their venue which was a great backdrop for the day. Although the weather was our enemy in parts, we stuck to our guns and went up into the surrounding hills to get some dramatic shots overlooking Crummock Water.
Karen Rhodes Catering served up the Wedding Breakfast with the fantastic idea of volunteering guests from each table to be head chef and carve up the meat to serve to the others before it was all washed down with drinks and music to end a great day.

Summer Weddings Flashback Part 1.

With winter now upon us and Christmas just around the corner I decided to do a two part blog feature looking back at some of the truly great Weddings I captured out in the sunshine of summer 2013.

Vicki & David Martin, York 26th June:
We start Part 1. with Vicki & David's wedding on a bright Wednesday afternoon in York. Vicki & Dave's Wedding was a low key event with a select few family and friends. This close knit group's laughing and joking over beers and wine made for a truly a unique atmosphere.

Vicky & Dave were really keen to get some photos of themselves walking down York's famous Shambles and I think the results worked out perfectly:

Katy & Stef Bahlaj, Ios Island, Greece 15th June:
This wedding was a fantastic opportunity to shoot abroad which I actually blogged about earlier in the year. You can check out the full story here: A Greek Wedding, Ios Island

Jodi & Louis Moore, Scarborough 27th July:
Jodi & Louis choose the scenic venue of Ox Pasture Hall, just on the edge of the North York Moors. Jodi & Louis were lucky enough to be married outside on a blazing hot day that left me badly sunburnt (but happy to be so). They were also able to bring along their beloved dog Bailey to join in the celebrations and Jodi's summery colour scheme summed up what was a vibrant, fun day:

Look out for Part 2. next week with weddings at the stunning venues of Ripley Castle, Newmillerdamn Country Park and The Lake District....
