Yorkshire Wedding Photography | York Wedding Photographer

Hollie + James got married at the church in¬†Siltstone in South Yorkshire and then held their reception at Cubley Hall which is about five minutes down the road. I photographed Hollie’s Mum’s wedding a few years ago and the year previous to this covered her Sister Ashleigh’s wedding, so it was a nice to have been chosen to capture this wedding too and be the photographer for an entire family of brides.

I met Hollie and her bridal party in the morning at Cubley Hall, and having met most of the bridesmaids before, blended in with what was happening from the moment I arrived. The pace in the morning was relaxed with a bubble of excitement, when I left for the church however Hollie was busy doing other people’s make-up and hadn’t even taken her hair out of curlers, with less than hour before she was due to marry she didn’t exhibit a single sign of stress and arrived with at the church with minutes to spare.

The vicar at the church is one of the most personable people that Ive met conducting the ceremony and she definitely added an extra layer of warmth to a pretty chilly February day. Ive said it before and will again, I really enjoy photographing church ceremonies due to the length of the service and the environment that Im given to take photographs in. This allows me to provide the couples that I work with more variety in their wedding coverage and take advantage of the unique architectural compositions and pockets of light that are present in many old church in the UK. I won an award with the AGWPJA from the title image in this post of Hollie’s dad looking proudly at her during the ceremony. Interestingly I captured a similar photograph at Ashleigh’s wedding too.
