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 :)
