Taitlands Wedding Photography | Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Laura + Ian chose Taitlands in Settle, North Yorkshire to host their wedding celebration. With a choice of two beautifully kept rooms for the ceremony, a lavish bridal suite and room for some guests; and with magnificent views across Ribblesdale from the walled country cottage garden, this venue really does offer everything you might be looking for in a quaint English cottage to host your wedding day.  The main house has a grand old manor feel about it with columns and some small steps leading upto its entrance and has a long sweeping drive way that passes a meadow of wild flowers as you arrive. The weather on the day also held out, despite the odd grey cloud and threat of rain, and this allowed the reception to take place in the gardens, which are also more than ample in size to play a game of cricket as these guys did.

I started the day photographing Laura and her bridesmaids as they had stayed the night before. Ian arrived around an hour before the ceremony and this allowed me to meet up with him and the groomsmen as they they helped him to calm his nerves with a beer to two and a wander around the grounds. The house is bathed in beautiful lights that bleeds in through its many windows and this provides exciting opportunities as a photographer to capture some striking images. After an intimate ceremony the reception was relaxed and informal before the meal was served. The food at this wedding was all locally sourced and the main course of beef still stands in my memory as one of the tastiest meals Ive ever had. The only pang of guilt you may experience is seeing your meals siblings in the field next door.

Here is a small selection of images from Laura + Ians wedding day that demonstrate the relaxed documentary approach to creating my wedding photography.
