Coniston Hotel Wedding Photography Yorkshire

Rebecca + Nick got married at the Church in Addingham on the outskirts of Leeds and then held their reception at the Coniston Hotel which is on the way up to Skipton in North Yorkshire. I met Rebecca a couple of years before her wedding at a wedding fair and she booked me on the day of meeting me and seeing the style of photos that I produced from weddings. Neither her or Nick wanted to much fuss on the day and so a relaxed documentary approach was the perfect fit. Nick had been ill on the run up to the wedding and on the day Rebecca unfortunately came down with it too, downing a large vodka as a tonic before setting off for the church to steady herself through the ceremony. With no pressure to perform for long photo shoots, both the bride and groom were able to set the pace of the day according to how they felt which certainly made getting married when not very well a lot easier to enjoy.

After spending a bit of time wit the bridal party, I met the groom and arriving guests at the church which is set alongside a beautiful meadow with long grasses that shimmered with halo’s against the strong sunshine. The hotel is set in the North Yorkshire country side close to Skipton and Ilkley and is a scenic drive from Leeds. The reception took place on the patio which overlooks the hotel’s lake and sprawling country views with the rest of the day being hosted in the conservatory due to the weather. Thankfully it had stayed dry and bright up until the evening, by which point no one was sober enough to care!

Here are a few photos from Rebecca & Nicks wedding that demonstrate the documentary style that I adapt for photographing weddings.
