Danby Castle Wedding Photography | North Yorkshire Photographer

Monica + James got married on a beautiful sunny day during summer at Danby Castle, on the North Yorkshire Moors. The couple booked me to cover 6 hours, which allowed a couple of hours for the bridal preparations and then allowed plenty of time for the reception to take a leisurely pace before the speeches. This was the third wedding that I covered at Danby this year, and Ive lost count of how many that Ive been fortunate to photograph at this unique venue over the last few years. Safe to say no two weddings have ever been the same and each time that Im there I look forward to seeing what Im able capture. Working at a venue more than once allows me to bring my experience of understanding the best spots of light and bits of the castle to use compositionally, and this always gives me an advantage when looking to produce the best shot that I can within a fast paced environment.

The couple booked me after seeing some of my work at the venue, and a few coincidences broke the ice immediately so that on the wedding day when we actually met for the first time, it was like we were old friends. Monica and James are both Nurses, which was my profession before becoming a full time photographer. They also live on the same street that I lived on as a child, and James was in the year above me at school, and are form rooms were pretty much next door to each other; its a small world!

Here is a small selection of images from Monica + James’ wedding to demonstrate the natural style that I create at social events.
