Wold Top Brewery Wedding Photography York

Sam + Kris held their wedding celebration at Wold Top Brewery, located in the rolling hills of the Yorkshire dales and not too far from Driffield. The venue is a working brewery and commissions a  special brew for each wedding that it hosts, made to the exact specifications of the bride and groom. With beautiful gardens and a large indoor marquee, it is perhaps one of the most unique locations to host a wedding. The couple wanted to have the ceremony in the gardens, and as the clouds rolled in, this decision was left until the last minute. The couple had married earlier in the week and had a humanist ceremony conducted by Sam’s uncle on the day, which makes the whole process more intimate and also gives me a bit of free reign when it comes to taking photos.

Sam got ready at some cottages close to the venue and had a leisurely morning with her bridesmaids before her step-mum arrived to do her make-up. After she got into her dress I set off to meet up with Kris and the arriving guests. When I arrived Kris and his best man were in the gardens enjoying a break in the weather. This break continued and the couple were able to have their ceremony outside and even enjoyed some of the ceremony there before the heavens literally opened and emptied what felt like its entire contents. This didn’t put a damper on any of the festivities, with a well stocked bar, the guests were more than taken care of. After the speeches, there was a bit of time to digest everything before the band started and everyone danced the night away.

Here are a few photos from Sam and Kris’ wedding to demonstrate the documentary approach I take to photographing weddings.
