Crathorne Hall was the delightful backdrop for Brett and Rachael’s Wedding.
They wanted a relaxed day without loosing traditional features of a country manor house wedding so kept all the celebrations to the venue.
We were all blessed with great weather for the day so we were able to create a whole series of chapters to their story.
We had the pleasure of shooting some cool bridal fashion for Precious Bridal at the Leeds Met Hotel recently.
A real team effort, we ended up with 4 models, a bunch of gowns and a few lenses, so a massive thanks to the team for pulling it off in proper order. I lost count of the bags of lighting gear we got through. Thanks goes as always to The Flash Centre for feeding my appetite for gear.
Here are a few shots from the day and but take a look at the links to all involved. Great people to work with and really quality focussed

Full respect for the extra shooting power from my buddies Michael, Chris and John
Lynne and Michael chose Bagden Hall for their celebrations after their wedding ceremony in the delightfully intimate chapel at Newmillerdam in Wakefield.
As active members of the chapel, there really was only one place where Lynne and Michael were going to be married and it was super to experience a ceremony so meaningful to all those present.
Lynne allowed Michael to choose a fantastic MK1 Jag for their transport and we couldn’t resist a Top Gear shot as we overtook on the way back to the venue.
We are in the process of designing a fantastic Queensberry Duo album for Lynne and Michael. We’ll blog and Facebook that once the craftsmen have done their stuff in New Zealand.
We were asked to help out with extending Amber’s Portfolio and decided that we’d head over to Manchester to use some space that had some character and could provide the backdrop for the shoot without it being too studio oriented.
We wanted to create a number of looks for Amber in the time we had together, one of these looks did involve some undressing and pouting, so please don’t be looking at the images if you get upset by a little flesh and cheeky boobs.
We had a really enjoyable session with Amber and if you’re looking for a beautiful, intelligent and very capable model, then just do a little search on Model Mayhem for Amber or drop us a note and I’ll pass on your contact details.
Here are some of my faves from the afternoon…
Wedding in the park
Steph and Mark chose The Mansion, Roundhay Park for their Wedding.
Steph chose a colour palette that included orange and pink with the result being a a burst of summer that perfectly complimented the venue and the day
Steph and Mark’s wedding has been so popular that it was has been featured on the Brides up North Wedding Blog. Steph contributed all the words for the article so its worth having a read. Here’s the link http://bridesupnorth.com/2011/09/07/let-the-sun-shine-a-real-wedding-steph-mark/
We couldn’t resist popping in here what Steph said about us though. Its always fantastic when we can help a couple through their day and because we’re with you all day we can guide and smooth the way so you don’t have to worry about anything.
Steph and Mark said “Damian and Charlotte were worth every penny we paid. We loved them from our first meeting and knew they were the photographer for us. Our pictures are amazing and Damian captured the day perfectly with a fun attitude and creativity. On the wedding day I don’t think I have ever met anyone more organised than Charlotte and a more tolerant photographer than Damian who didn’t mind the ushers jumping on top of each other (and him!)”
You can also see the wedding in print as it’s featured in the latest edition of I Do magazine.
