Sledmere House Wedding: Country Barns and a Family Car

Sledmere House Wedding: Country Barns and a Family Car

Jenni and James first met back in their years at secondary school, when they had a year-long relationship at the dear age of 14 – how sweet! Years later, while celebrating Jenni’s birthday in The Lake District, they battled the wind during a hike up Loughrigg Fell. James set up his camera to take a photo of them together and, rather sneakily, set it to video instead! Jenni could barely hear him through the gale force winds when he got down on one knee, but of course, she said yes anyway! Read More...

Rise Hall Wedding: Top Hats and a Uilleann

A few years back, we met the lovely Daniella and Aubrey at a wedding fayre. They had their hearts set on a classic, traditional English wedding in the gorgeous county of East Riding. Their special day was an exciting one for us, not only were we looking forward to all the top hats and tailcoats, it was one of our first catholic weddings too!

The morning was nice and relaxed. Daniella chose to get ready at home, with Sam (Chick Artistry) providing make-up and the bridesmaids helping keep Daniella calm, and doing a spot of last minute ironing too! Read More...

Boutipi Wedding: Woodland Paths & Haybales by the Pond

We were looking forward to Katy & Kristian’s wedding from the moment we met them. A lovely, laid back couple – we couldn’t wait to see what they had in mind for their big day! Katy & Kristian’s journey began back in 2012, when they met at a friend’s birthday party. Sometime later, down at St. Ives Harbour, Kristian popped the question during a gorgeous sunset. Of course, Katy said yes, and the wedding preparations began!

Looking to make their wedding a relaxed occasion, Katy & Kristian hired a secluded field. Read More...

Tickton Grange Wedding: Country Gardens & Surprise Cakes

Katy & Rob’s story started back in 2010, when the couple were introduced through a mutual friend on a night out. After Katy’s friends insisted on Rob asking for her number, their journey began! A few years later, surrounded by candles and lovingly crafted origami stars, Rob popped the question – how could Katy say no! We’ve been good friends with them for some time, and we couldn’t wait to photograph their big day.

The couple were set on having an elegant, yet modern, wedding. Read More...

Oaklands Wedding: Tipis and Dancing in the Woods

Louise and Simon’s journey started back in 2008 on Facebook, followed by Simon’s proposal in 2014 – with a traditional bent knee! We met them during preparations for their laid back, but stunning wedding.

In the heart of East Yorkshire’s countryside, Oaklands, East Yorkshire is a hidden gem; like really hidden, should we be down this road, hidden?! With it’s gorgeous woodlands and natural surroundings, it provided the perfect backdrop for the big day!

The openness of the venue provided the relaxed, festival atmosphere that Louise & Simon wanted for their guests. Read More...

West Carlton Guest House Boutipi Wedding: Tophats & Tipis

I was looking forward to Richard & Rich’s wedding for a long time. Their engagement shoot with their dogs pulling down trees and then the next minute posing for their photos as if trained for the event was the first taste of what the big day would be. We laughed the whole time, and although the Richard’s claimed they hadn’t been overly looking forward to their engagement shoot, the photos came out great (biased opinion here obviously) and they even had one photo set into cuff links for the wedding!

Fossca Studio: Part 3

The underfloor heating screed had now set, so just the entire building to finish.

There was a huge mini-project at this point. The whole building runs off computers. Lighting, heating, CCTV, speakers, sensors; all required miles – literally – of cables hiding in walls and floors. Here’s a photo of my friend Liam lending a hand. He almost lost said hand haha!

 

This whole process took a hell of a long time, but it’s just the most amazing thing when you arrive in the morning, heat set just right, and the lights and your favourite radio station fade in. Read More...

Long overdue this post! I left part one having just got the keys and sort of had a design in mind for the layout. Here’s the first few jobs on the list.

When we got the building, there were six rooms downstairs – with no windows, mmmm. Upstairs had six more rooms – two without windows. You get the picture, many rooms in bad state, with no natural or artificial lighting. A great place to inspire confidence in our clients, haha! Read More...

5 tips for your engagement shoot

5 tips for your engagement shoot

As part of our wedding photography package we always include a free engagement shoot for a couple of good reasons.

Firstly we have large intimidating cameras, and most people aren’t used to walking along being photographed paparazzi style! Engagement shoots are a great way to gently ease into having your photos taken so that on your big day you already know us and our cameras, and can simply enjoy the day.

Secondly, once these photos are taken you have a wonderful set of portraits ideal for wedding stationary or prints for yourselves, friends, and family. Read More...

Big news! We now have premises in Hull. It’s not quite a studio yet, more a drafty warehouse, but soon! This actually happened at the beginning of October, but this wedding season has been manic, hence a delayed, but still exciting announcement. So without further ado here is the story so far – for my benefit as much as yours!

The viewing – 8th March 2012

This part went well, building was as expected. Me being a photographer, forgot to pick up one of the many cameras I own, so this first part is iPhone style. Read More...
