Lindsey & Andy’s Wedding Day / Aldby Park Wedding Photography

Lindsey and Andy had an absolutely stunning RAF wedding day just outside York on a perfect summers day! They held their ceremony at the village church in Sheriff Hutton, followed by a reception in the grounds of Aldby Park in the village of Buttercrambe near Stamford Bridge. I was excited for their wedding day right from meeting Lindsey and Andy as I knew they were going to be so much fun to photograph and it was great to hear that they were up for doing a few things out of the ordinary, as you’ll see in the photos below! It’s not often that everything comes together that I plan beforehand but this wedding so pretty close to perfect, and I think you’ll agree from the leaving the church shots to the sunset portraits in the evening, these two absolutely nailed it and were looked so natural in front of the camera. It was a first wedding for me at Aldby Park, a private stately home in the small village of Buttercrambe. Surrounded by manicured gardens to the rear and farmland to the front we were spoiled for choice for photo locations. The Sperry Tent from Papakata looked fantastic opposite the grandeur of the Georgian mansion house, and the inside was just jaw dropping with details from the ground up to the ceiling! The Hog and Apple caterers as ever were on top form and provided the incredible food. It was an absolute pleasure to have Penny and Ed from Silver Sixpence Films with us to film the wedding, click through here to watch the highlights video! In the evening the dancefloor was packed out courtesy of Ordinary Men who really got the party started! Andy and his groomsmen got ready for the church in a fab set of cottages close to Stamford Bridge and I headed there to get some prep shots before going to see Lindsey in Buttercrambe.The wedding car was actually Andy’s parents Morris Minor and it looked absolute fab! Andy’s brother and best man Nigel took chauffeur duties to drive Lindsey and Andy from the church to Aldby Park. You can take the girl off the farm…!

Alice & Andy’s Wedding Day / South Dalton Hall Wedding Photography

Alice and Andy’s wedding was my first time photographing in the beautiful walled gardens of South Dalton Hall near Beverley in East Yorkshire, and what a fantastic day it was! The ceremony took place at the picturesque village church in South Dalton, and then it was a short drive straight over the estate to the grounds of South Dalton Hall, where the Papakata tipi was waiting to hold the wedding reception and evening partying.

The Old Lodge Wedding Photography / Rita & Mark’s Wedding Day / Malton Wedding Photographer

A cute as a button couple, two amazing familes, one of my favourite venues, a teepee in the garden, sunshine and showers, crazy moves on the dancefloor, and topped off with a fireworks set to end the night! Rita and Mark were married at the village church in Welburn, a few miles away from The Old Lodge in Malton where their reception was held. I’ve photographed quite few weddings now at The Old Lodge, but this would be the first time with a tipi in the garden. With just 30 some guests, this was a very intimate wedding day, but Rita’s Jordanian family sure knew how to party and boy was it a fun day and night to photograph!
