Katie + Ashley

Katie & Ashley got married on the 14th August 2015 at Van Dyk Hotel in Chesterfield. It was a great wedding and nothing could spoil this day not even the persistent rain!! It’s lovely indoors and out here so after the ceremony we took some group photos inside before briefly popping outside with the brolly to get a couple of shots… after the meal… yes it was raining again, but armed with more brollies and some lovely friends more than happy to carry the dress we found a great spot to take some more pics. Then back inside for some interesting dance-offs ;) and a lovely first dance :) You both looked really happy and I wish you all the best for the future! x

Louise + Joel

Louise initially contacted me as I had photographed her brother’s wedding years previously in Sheffield. This wedding was to take place slightly further afield though in the beautiful rural village of Cracoe in Skipton. The wedding date was the 8th August 2015, and it was a beautiful sunny day when I travelled up to the village of Lothersdale to meet with Louise getting ready with her Mum. There was instantly a very laid-back feel and Louise was very relaxed so I knew from the off it was going to be a great day. En-route to the registry office in Skipton we stopped off at Louise’s Dad’s house for some more pics in the beautiful gardens. Then onto Skipton where I found a slightly nervous waiting groom ;) After a lovely ceremony we all headed outside for some celebratory hugs before heading on to the Village Hall. Cracoe is a gorgeous village which I hadn’t been to until the day of the wedding, but confident we would find the perfect spot, me, Louise & Joel jumped in my car and headed up the road… of course we found a glorious place with hills, greenery, sheep, gates and dry stone walls, pretty much all of Louise’s requirements I think ;) Then it was back to the hall for some pics and a lovely barbecue. Afterwards there were speeches, cake-cutting and of course a spot of dancing. I loved my trip to Skipton and couldn’t have asked for lovelier people to be surrounded with :)
