Brett and Rachael | Crathorne Hall Wedding

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.

 

Jo and David | Soulton Hall Wedding Photography

Jo and David chose Soulton Hall to for their wedding venue. Soulton is beautiful Elizabethan Manor house set in truly beautiful countryside not far from Wem in Shropshire.

Soulton specialises in very personal weddings and Jo and Davids was no exception to that. David started of as every wedding day should start, with a quick 9 holes knocked in with the chaps whilst Jo spent the morning with family from the North East.

We were blessed with fabulous weather all day and the beautiful light at the end of the day lit up the house and gardens in a glorious warm glow. Wonderful couple, lovely venue, great times.

We created a five minute slideshow of the wedding for the Soulton website and we've embedded here so you can see the full story of the day.

Jo and David Pre Wedding | Soulton Hall Wedding Photography

Jo and David are getting married at Soulton Hall in Shropshire in a couple of months and we met up in Marsden for their Pre Wedding Shoot (along with Milly the dog). We kept things old school with natural light and as I was born and raised in Marsden we headed off to a lovely little corner of Yorkshire.

Jo has some special plans for the wedding day and we're very much looking forward to sharing the day in August

Clare and Richard | Hodsock Priory Wedding Photography

A wonderful relaxed wedding at the beautiful Hodsock Priory. One of the perks of our job is spending time in these magnificent old country houses. We have total respect for George and his family in keeping Hodsock looking so great, all the time. It did seem like Clare and Richard had chosen the coldest day of the year to get married. Damian is pretty warm blooded and even he put a jumper on. Thank goodness for the real fires.

The day started with Clare having her hair done at Rubies in Bawtry, the gang then moved to Hodsock where they where greeted with their fantastic bouquets, put together beautifuly by Jo Price Flowers They were just right for the time of year and looked fabulous set against the Christmas decorations.

Music is an important part of Clare and Richard's history and Clare's old piano teacher and her husband had written a piece especially for Clare and Richard. it was really touching. Less touching was being announced into your wedding breakfast to the sound of the Propellerheads "on her majesty's secret service". Cool!

Their simple but elegant cake was made by Sam at Little Goodies. Cup cakes all round!. It smelt way too good.

The evening was kicked of by The Nerds. Its fair to say they may be called The Nerds, but they can certainly bang a great tune out and it didnt take long for everyone to be on their feet.

Great day, Great fun. An absolute pleasure!

 

Rachel & Terry's Lifestyle Shoot

Hey everyone. Just been to see Rachel & Terry (with Mum and Dad) to show them their lifestyle shoot images we shot at Temple Newsam house in Leeds a little while ago.

Its always good to get everyone crying. Especially when its because they've never had any decent photos done before. Nice to be the first!

They were hopeless at choosing so they're having an album... better get my designing head on!
