Aldby Park Wedding Photography | York Wedding Photographer

Bryony + John got married at St Mary’s Church in Hemingbrough, which is Bryony’s family’s local church and where she was baptised so it was great to be able to add to the family collection of photographs from life events that have happened here. They then held their reception in a marquee in the country estate of Aldby Park, near to York, and overlooked by the grand manor house, in the beautifully kept and landscaped grounds.

I spent a couple of hours with Bryony, her parents and bridesmaids as they all got ready in the morning. Despite having only met briefly via a video chat to discuss the order of the day, I felt like one of the family within minutes of arriving and I honestly don’t think Ive laughed so much on the morning of a wedding day. The preparations were also accompanied by Bryony + John’s dog who’s role for the day was ring bearer, and as Im pretty fond of furry friends, she was great company to be around.

I met John at the church and spent a short time taking photos of guests as they turned up before Bryony arrived for the ceremony. The church was beautifully lit inside and the vicar was good fun, providing some great memories for the congregation. After the formalities the heavens opened but cleared again before everyone arrived at Aldby Park for the reception. The couple provided festival style food vans with lots of BBQ on offer and this all seemed to go down very well. After which people relaxed and enjoyed the atmosphere with bands coming on later in the evening to finish off the night as it crept in.

 Bryony + John sent me this feedback when they received their photos:

“Alex, we just wanted to say, the photos are fecking amazing! Certainly reminded us of the happiness of the day. My Mam is currently making a list of her favourites, so be prepared for her order soon!”

Here is a small selection of photo’s from this wedding to demonstrate my style of wedding photography.
