North Yorkshire Wedding, Weddings

Goldsborough Hall Wedding Photos / Kirstie & George / North Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Tucked away in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, close to the towns of Knaresborough and Harrogate, Goldsborough Hall is a dream wedding venue that blends historical charm with modern elegance. As a regular photographer at this stunning location, I’ve captured many love stories here, and each one is as special as the next. Once home to Princess Mary, the Queen’s aunt, Goldsborough Hall is steeped in history, adding a unique touch to every wedding. Its gorgeous gardens and stately rooms create the perfect backdrop for unforgettable moments.  Goldsborough Hall Wedding Photography Photography By: Chris Milner Photography Venue: Goldsborough Hall

Rudding Park Wedding Photography / Michelle & Ryan’s Wedding Day / Harrogate Wedding Photographer

A gorgeous spring time wedding at Rudding Park for you on the blog today. Michelle and Ryan had such a fantastic day back in April, the sun was shining and the daffodils were in full bloom, just such a perfect day! It was made all the more special by having an intimate civil ceremony for close family and friends, and then after came the full wedding blessing in the chapel complete with change of outfits into wedding dress and suits. As any wedding photographer in Yorkshire will tell you, Father Ian is an absolute legend and wants each couple to get the best possible photos of the ceremony, even going so far as setting up two shots of the first kiss to get multiple angles!

Elaine & Graham’s Wedding Day / Rudding Park Wedding Photography / Harrogate Wedding Photographer

One of the best things about photographing weddings, is getting recommendations from friends and family of previous brides and grooms, and getting to see familiar faces again a few months or even years down the line. Especially when you’re able to spend time with such amazing families, I actually had the pleasure of photographing Elaine’s brother, Andrew’s wedding earlier in the year in Clitheroe, and I was looking forward to seeing everyone again. It really is a fantastic feeling to be chosen to photograph the wedding of a relative of a previous bride or groom, everyone is just so relaxed as we all know each other already and the day just flows along. Elaine and Graham held their wedding day at the fab Rudding Park, just outside Harrogate. Definitely one of my favourite places to photograph, and held their wedding ceremony in Rudding Park’s own chapel on the grounds. The day started in Easingwold at Elaine’s parents house, it was great to get to work with Lauren Sally once again who as always does an incredible job of making the girls look amazing.  You may remember Andrew and Kathryn from their wedding at Mitton Hall earlier in the year.Sadly, this would be the last time I would get to work with Roger of Reece Wedding Cars as he has now retired, I’ve worked with him loads over the years and you won’t find a more immaculate looking Mark 2 Jaguar on the road! I love how the moon was in the right spot for the fireworks! Harrogate Wedding Photographer Wedding Photography by Chris Milner Photography Venue: Rudding Park, Harrogate


Ann & Anthony’s Wedding Day / Ripley Castle Wedding Photographer / Harrogate Wedding Photography

Blue skies, autumnal colours, a beautiful castle venue, and a lovely fun couple with great friends and family, photographing Ann and Anthony’s wedding day at Ripley Castle was an absolute pleasure! We joined Ann and her bridesmaids where she was getting ready at The Boars Head, a hotel just beyond the castle walls in the village of Ripley. A couple of hours later Anthony arrived with his family and my assistant Elissa joined him for a few snaps. Ripley Castle has some of the most stunning grounds that I’ve seen at a wedding venue. This is one of my favourites from 2013, in front of Anthony in the ceremony room is a large mirror and I love his expression when he sees Ann walking up the aisle in the reflection. The wind was starting to pick up and the clouds blew in some rain but we managed to get a few shots outside.

Ripley Castle Wedding Photography / Sarah & Liam’s Wedding Day / North Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Ripley Castle was a wedding venue that I had wanted to photograph at for years, and then I get 3 booked all with a week between them, amazing! Sarah and Liam’s wedding was the first of the three in the middle of October last year, and what a stunning day it was! We started the day in Harrogate where Sarah was getting ready at a fantastic modern apartment with her mum and bridesmaids. It was then a quick trip in a duo of Beauford wedding cars to Ripley Castle a few miles out of Harrogate. Sarah looked absolutely incredible, and Liam and the guys also looked pretty damn sharp in their royal blue suits (my favourite wedding suit colour!) The weather wasn’t particularly kind with some drizzle upon Sarah’s arrival but thankfully it dried out and we got to take a walk around the courtyard and grounds.
