Church + Marquee Wedding Photography | Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Luke + Lucy got married near York, holding their ceremony in the local family church and then hosting their reception in Lucy’s parents garden, which had plenty of space for the marquee and afternoon drinks reception.

I started the day with Lucy and her bridal party and spent a couple of hours mingling with all of the banter that was going on. Outside the heavens were opening, but inside the mood more than made up for any misery in the sky. As I was setting off to the church to be ready to capture Lucy’s arrival, the sky cleared and bright sunshine emerged and dried up all of the rain. This set the mood for the rest of the day and ensured that the grass was ready for the arrival of 100+ guests after the wedding ceremony.

I really enjoy church ceremonies; you always get a good sing a long, often get some great light to work with and more generally I am afforded more time than a ceremony conducted by registrars, meaning that  I can look for some variety in my coverage. The church setting also adds some tradition to the wedding day, and even if you don’t believe in the story of Jesus, I think that its a great place to express the spiritual aspect of the wedding vows.

I received this message from Lucy + Luke when they looked through their pics:

“Alex we LOVE them Thank you so so much! I especially love the ones with my dad. All our family and friends love the pics, thank you for all your hard work!”

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