Yorkshire Wedding Photography
It’s strange how much things seem to change each wedding season. Last summer seems like so long ago and with all of the engagement shoots we’ve been doing over winter it feels fantastic to be able to get to work trying new techniques and angles at some summer weddings. Ok, so I know it’s not quite summer yet, but with the weather we’ve been having recently it certainly feels like it’s on the way.
Katie and Nathan’s wedding earlier this month certainly felt like the start of an incredible summer with one of the warmest days of the year. You wouldn’t have guessed that from the day before however, as rain and gale force winds swept across the countryside and made setting up for the wedding difficult to say the least. As I arrived at the venue, V already over with Katie and the bridesmaids, Nathan and his groomsmen hurried to get everything ready for the ceremony. Even the trip to the pub was cancelled!
You might remember Nathan and Katie’s unique, urban engagement shoot earlier this year. When we met them for the shoot it quickly became apparent that they were both pretty adventurous and wanted their day to be, above all else, fun, and it was certainly that. The bar stocked, tables decorated and Pizza van on site everyone quickly settled in to enjoying their day in the countryside where the ceremony was held in the tepee. It was the kind of wedding where everyone just seemed to fit right in, from the friends who had made elderflower champagne specially for the day, to the one who had written a song just for the ceremony. It was clear that family means a lot to these two and that it extends further than just a surname.
Seeing Nathan and Katie reminiscing with friends from school, work and university as the light faded into the evening felt like everything had gone exactly how they wanted it to. An incredible day sharing stories, food and drink with the most important people in their lives. No matter how many times it happens we always feel overwhelmingly proud to be able to share days like this with our couples, a shared obsession with Ninja Warrior doesn’t hurt either.
