Long may She rain!

We are loving the Jubilee celebrations and the extra long weekend but it’s a shame we’ve all needed one of these rather than the factor 15!  We are photographing a wedding tomorrow at Rudding Park so fingers crossed it’s a little drier for the happy couple…..

Unforgettable wedding photography

We all hope for stunning and unforgettable wedding photographs but the unexpected guest at a couple’s wedding in Kansas certainly got everyone’s attention.  Fortunately the bride and groom and the rest of their guests took the tornado in their stride, as can be seen from the pictures here ! We have never had quite such [...]

Proud to be British!

We found this picture today which we think really suits the pre-Jubilee atmosphere at the moment.  The old red phone box conjures up images of all things British and makes a fabulous background for a beautiful bride in white.  And for anyone wondering, the bride wasn’t about to phone the groom to ask his whereabouts!

The Coniston Hotel Wedding Open Day

We are delighted to be attending the Coniston Hotel Wedding Open Day this Sunday 20th May between 11am and 4pm. The Coniston Hotel is a wedding venue unlike any other, a venue where friendly, personal service comes naturally. Nestling in 1400 acres of stunning Yorkshire Dales scenery, and with a 24 acre lake,  Coniston Hall [...]

Jubilee Fever!

We’ve noticed how everyone is starting to get in to the Jubilee spirit with banners and bunting in the shops and Union Jack influenced clothing, crockery, cushions and biscuit tins!  Whether the enthusiasm is for our Queen and her sixty year reign or simply for the four day weekend and street parties many of us [...]

How late should a bride be?

Tradition seems to suggest that a bride should be late for her wedding but is it still true today?  Sometimes being a few minutes later than planned can’t be helped; if there’s a last minute tweak to be made to the dress or hair and make up, or the bridal car isn’t quite on time.  [...]

Receiving line, yes or no?

Many couples spend a lot of time debating whether or not to have a receiving line, often feeling it’s a tradition that parents and older family members and guests will expect them to adhere to.  Whilst it is one way to (hopefully) ensure that you greet each guest personally, it can take a lot of [...]

What to play at your wedding?

So, according to Spotify, the most played song at weddings these days is ‘I Gotta Feeling’ by the Black Eyed Peas, swiftly followed by ‘Sex on Fire’ (Kings of Leon) and ‘Mr Brightside’ (The Killers).  Couples are choosing more modern tracks in a move away from older classics, cheesy tunes and power ballads.  This all [...]

Who should you invite to your wedding?

So, who do you invite to your wedding and how do you decide?  This is a potential minefield, unless of course you are lucky enough to have unlimited space and money.  The simplest way to start is to find out how many guests your venue can cater for and write a list of the people [...]

Last chance to see the exhibition!

Just a reminder that there is only one week left to view our exhibition at Newby Hall so if you haven’t been yet, do try and get there to see ‘Mist over Birstwith’ and many more amazing images.  With the beautiful house and gardens it’s a fantastic way to spend a few hours.
