Escrick Park Wedding Photography | York Wedding Photographer

Naomi and Kristian got married in a church in York and then held their reception in a Papkata Tipi at Escrick Park where I am listed as a preferred supplier. The Escrick estate has a few locations to host your wedding, whether you are looking for a woodland, a large field or a beautiful english cottage garden, neighbours also appear to be few and far between if music to a reasonable hour in the evening is on your list of requirements too, and as such I really enjoy the atmosphere at these kind of laid back affairs and its great to be able to blend in as the photographer and capture candid photographs.

The couple hired some adjacent cottages not too far from the church and stayed there with their bridesmaids and groomsmen for the weekend, and as the weather was glorious Id imagine a few barbecues took place and plenty of summer refreshments were consumed. Getting ready next door to each other meant that I could flit between the two groups on the morning of the wedding and capture photographs for both parties to see what the other got up too.

After a couple of hours I met up with the guests as they arrived in time for the ceremony. Ive said it before; I love photographing church wedding ceremonies due to the relative freedom and time that you are given over civil ceremonies, it can also add a traditional element to a celebration that doesn’t necessarily follow all of the rules of a traditional wedding, one example being the style of photographer being employed over one who might orchestrate the day more and create a set of portraits over a documentary coverage of the events.

The afternoon meandered at a leisurely pace before a band played a couple of sets into the evening. I won an award for the title image in this blog post with the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photo Journalist Association.
