Chloe & Will's Wedding in York

I got a treat at the end of July - a new venue to visit in a new city, with a cool couple who said I could shoot  pretty much how and what I wanted at their wedding. So it was off up the motorway to one of my favourite places - York.

We started at the lovely little register office on the edge of the city with Will and his best man arriving, shortly to be followed by Chloe and her young maid of honour.

There were some last minute preparations just before the Bride made her entrance...

After the ceremony we grabbed some family photographs in the gardens, before starting our walk through York to the reception venue.

It was during our wanders around the city that I planned to get as many shots taken as I could talk them into - including a shot of the couple being dwarfed by York Minster.

The shot below is a first. Never before have we got a wedding photograph which actually features the Starbucks that I visited after the wedding photographs were shot... Extra large extra shot iced latte.

And I'm fairly sure that below is our first ever shot of a beautiful Bride posing by the front door of the Lloyds TSB Bank :)

Chloe & Will, we had a blast, thanks for being great subjects and humouring me and my crazy requests all afternoon!

Chloe & Michael's Wedding at Aston on Trent & Colwick Hall

We clocked up some miles visiting Chloe & Michael for their special day at the end of July! First off it was all systems go at Colwick Hall where Chloe and her party were getting ready.

Then it was time to head over Aston on Trent to drag the boys out of the pub before the Bride arrived :)

We had a good old wander around to capture some nice informal shots of everybody arriving, including Chloe looking stunning, and Millen, our long suffering and well fussed over page boy!

After the ceremony we made time to visit the amazing willow tree behind the church before heading off back to Colwick for a chilled out reception and more informal shots of the couple and guests. See below for a great way of keeping the young ones amused...

We finished up with a quick shot to show off the grand staircase at Colwick Hall before leaving everybody to settle down for dinner.

Congratulations Chloe & Michael!

Amanda & Phil's' Wedding at Shottle Hall

It's always a pleasure to find ourselves spending the afternoon at the gorgeous Shottle Hall and today, the weather was on our side (for once) also.

First we said hello to Phil and his best man, before heading up to Amanda's room to check on her progress. It was good to see Amanda's dad making himself useful :)

After tea we grabbed this gorgeous high key shot  and had a float around to capture proceedings.

During the ceremony we shot from a discreet distance at the back, which gives us prime position for THAT kissing picture!

 Although not everybody was as captivated by the ceremony as us:

After the couple were well and truly wedded, we gathered everybody in the garden for our regular 'hanging out the bedroom window' crowd shot. This is so popular with our couples because it provides a nice informal way of getting everybody on a shot without us having to stand people in line time after time.

For some, it was then time for a well earned 'Fruit Shoot' break.

 And a go on Angry Birds.

For us, it was time for a good old wander around to make the most of the stunning gardens and scenery around the Hall.

Just when I thought they had just about had enough posing and wandering, Amanda & Phil suggested a walk even further around to get these shots. Result!

 We absolutely love these cakes. Stunning!

I think that just about says it all. Congratulations Amanda & Phil!
