York Wedding Photographer | Leeds Wedding Photography

Helen & Steve got married at the KP club in Pocklington, close to York. Located down a long country lane and next to a Buddhist meditation centre in and amongst some beautiful fields and woods, the venue and its location exudes an air of calm and tranquility and this resonated throughout the wedding day. The venue is a modern building with strong leading lines that are enticing to make photographs with. There are several log cabins in the woods that the wedding party stayed in over the weekend and this is where I met with Helen and her bridesmaids in the morning. We were shortly joined by her parents and daughter  and I spent a quick couple of hours blending in with them all and taking advantage of the strong compositional elements that were available.

I met up with Steve in the bar and captured some photos of the guests arriving. The registrars in East Yorkshire are a bit strict when it comes to photography during the ceremony and this is worth bearing in mind if you are thinking about getting married in that county and are keen to have a full photography coverage of the service. Afterwards a leisurely reception took place on the balcony and in and around the bar. An ice-cream van provided pudding after the speeches and this family orientated vibe continued with a frozen karaoke, buckets of sweets and bottles of booze for the grown ups. The venue also has a playground which proved useful for the young families in attendance and provided plenty of entertainment in this respect.

Here are a few photographs from the wedding to illustrate the documentary approach that I take to photographing weddings, please have a good look around the site to see more examples of my wedding photography from every part of the day.
