Sarah & Mike’s Wedding Day / Bedern Hall, and National Centre For Early Music Wedding Photography

There was wall to wall sunshine for Sarah and Michael’s wedding day in York last Saturday, a beautiful spring day! They held their ceremony at Bedern Hall, hidden behind Goodramgate and a stones throw from The Minster. We popped off afterwards for a few photos around York Minster and the surrounding cobbled streets, and then had a fab ride to the reception at The National Centre For Early Music on the other side of town, driven by Nick from Limelight Wedding Cars in his awesome Morris Minor Convertible. Fab as always to work with Anna Stephenson hair and make-up artist I joined the guys who were having a few pre-wedding tipples at The Principle Hotel National Centre For Early Music Wedding Photography Wedding Photography by Chris Milner Photography Venues: Bedern Hall and National Centre For Early Music

Caroline & Charles’ Wedding Day / Middlethorpe Hall Wedding Photography

An absolutely beautiful wedding day in York on my blog today! Caroline and Charles’ wedding day took place in Bishopthorpe in York at the village church, with their reception a stones throw away at the stunning Middlethorpe Hall hotel. I first met Caroline and Charles last summer down in London won their pre-wedding shoot and we hit it off straight away and I had a whole year to look forward to their wedding day as I knew it would be a great day as they are such a fun couple to photograph! I had my good friend Paul along for the day to second shoot with me and he headed to Middlethorpe  Hall in the morning where Charles and his groomsmen were getting ready, and I took a very short drive down the road to Caroline’s mum’s house, literally just over the road from St Andrew’s church. We had a great team of suppliers along with us for the day, with their super cute convertible Morris Minor wedding car supplied by Classic Car Hire Yorkshire, which Charles had a lot of fun driving to and from the church! The floral arrangements were by the fab Lucy MacNicoll Floral Design, who provided the bridal party bouquets, church, and marquee chandelier flowers. and it was great to work with the guys from Story of Your Day who were covering the videography duties. The night time entertainment went with a bang, starting the show was Gary Grace and his swing band who were just fantastic, and we were treated to a cracking firework show and the guests danced the night away until the early hours!   This was such a lovely moment, Charles had arranged for a barbershop quartet to come and sing a few songs for Caroline on the morning of the wedding as a surprise!                   Middlethorpe Hall Wedding Photography Wedding Photography by Chris Milner Photography Venue: Middlethorpe Hall York

Rebecca & David’s wedding day / Camp Katur Wedding Photographer

Rebecca and David’s wedding at Camp Katur in the Yorkshire Dales was my first outdoor ceremony and I absolutely loved it! I love photographing in the countryside and we were surrounded by incredible woodlands, the ceremony was absolutely stunning! The day began at Millgate B&B in Masham where Rebecca was getting ready with her bridesmaids, helped by the very talented make up artist Anna Stephenson, who I have worked with at countless weddings this year! A very cute convertible Morris Minor from Superior Motor Cars whisked Rebecca a few miles down the road to the Camp Hill Estate where Camp Katur is located. It was very touch and go as to whether or not the ceremony would be in the woods or the plan B in the barn due to the very uncertain weather forecast but the sun came out just when we needed it!  Camp Katur Wedding Photographer Wedding Photography by Chris Milner Photography Venue: Camp Katur, Kirklington

Jude & Ben’s Wedding Day / RAF Linton on Ouse Wedding Photography

One of my favourite weddings of last year, and my first time photographing at an RAF base! Jude and Ben’s wedding was such a great day and I literally loved every minute of it, a fantastic couple who made my job so easy and boy do they look good in front of a camera! I’ve done quite a few RAF weddings now and I always love photographing them, but I was especially excited about shooting this wedding as I would get the chance to photograph on the base, and this got my ideas flowing and I began thinking of locations on the base for photos. On our pre-wedding shoot I suggested to Ben that we take some photos on the runway itself, along with their camper van. At the time I thought it was just a pie in the sky idea but amazingly we got permission from air traffic control and we managed to pull it off and got my favourite shot of the year in the process!

Aisling & James’ Wedding Day / The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall Wedding Photography

James and Aisling’s wedding day was an absolute joy to photograph, an amazing couple and a fun bunch of friends and family too! The day was filled with laughter from start to finish. The wedding took place in my home city of York at The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall in the centre of town, a very popular venue for me and a very stunning one at that!

Cat & Ash’s Wedding Day at Danby Castle / Danby Castle Wedding Photography

Cat and Ash’s wedding at Danby Castle on the blog today, and what a day it was! The North Yorkshire Moors is my favourite part of the county, so getting to photograph weddings there is an extra special treat, and weddings at Danby Castle always have their little quirks and are usually incredibly fun and this one was no exception! The heather on the moors was in full bloom and the countryside was just picture perfect, blue skies and fluffy clouds above. My day began with the girls getting ready in cottages near Castleton, who were promptly collected by Steve from All Cool Campers in the stunning Rose van. A short trip through the villages and we arrived at Danby where Ash was ready to await his beautiful bride Cat. After a laughter filled ceremony we took a ride in the camper van to Duck Bridge, donned our wellies and had a walk (or more like wade) in the river… as you do on a wedding day! I knew Cat would be wearing a short wedding dress beforehand and had planned this shot with them a few months beforehand, and I’m so pleased that I had a couple that were up for being a bit adventurous to get a shot that I had not seen done before! Thankfully none of us took a tumble and we all got out safe and sound. Another highlight from this wedding was Cat and Ash’s ‘Special Guest Appearance’ which was a complete surprise to all their guests. I’m sure everyone has heard of the Red Arrows? Well on this day we had the… Red Barrows! A fully orchestrated team of synchronized guys in red jump suits doing tricks with wheel barrows with the Top Gun theme blasting out in the background, definitely a first for any wedding day I’m sure!
