I’ve been at Oulton Hall as a wedding photographer a number of times and even stayed there as a guest. I’m always impressed! Despite shooting there before I always see new things to explore and try and Hannah and Richard’s wedding was no exception.
The day started with the gents over in the golf course clubhouse before heading back to the main hotel to catch up with the ladies during their final preparations. The large windows flood the ceremony room with light and the suite looked equally stunning for the reception thanks to Hannah and Richard’s (but probably mostly Hannah’s) subtle decorative touches.
First, if you’ve got a few minutes, turn on your speakers and enjoy a slideshow of my favourite images. Or just scroll down to see the story of the day.
The early part of the year is usually a time to be bang up to date with the blog, before the spring and summer wedding season kicks in. Unfortunately, it’s been a crazy few weeks of weddings, wedding fairs and perhaps most distributively the fitting of a new kitchen.
Losing use of the culinary heart of the home has left Rache and I feeling like we are camping out in our own living room, albeit with a microwave in place of the camping stove!
Tomorrow I’ll be escaping the mayhem to head down to London for a two day photography workshop taught by four of the best wedding photographers in the country. Before heading south though, I thought I’d make a start on catching up with the blog posts by sharing Alice and Chris’s portraits, from a few weeks ago, at Ripley Castle. I’m hoping to be back in the kitchen on my return!
Before the wedding season gets too crazy, I’m offering a limited number of portrait sessions on Saturday 21st of March at Kirkstall Abbey Leeds.
Unlike my standard 2 hour portrait sessions, I’m offering shorter 45 minute sessions for £75. These are designed to give couples or families a collection of around 20-30 beautiful images. All the images will be uploaded to an online gallery for sharing and will also be provided on a disc for printing and sharing and with a cinematic slideshow.
To book your session simply email using the form below letting me know who I’ll be photographing and if you have a preference for a morning or afternoon slot.
Please get in touch via the form below
There will only be 6 sessions available on the day and this will be one of only two portrait days in 2015.
If you’d like to choose your own location for a longer portrait shoot then check out my portraits page.
Rache and I got married in the middle of summer. The 10th of August, a great time to get married if you’re a school teacher, not so much if you’re a wedding photographer. While things are always busiest for me during the summer months (and quietest for Mrs D) one of the things I love about my job is that people do get married all year round. The different seasons bring different challenges and opportunities. In December, for me it is all about low winter sun, fairy lights and shooting in to the darkness of the early evening.
Just after Christmas I got all of the above as I joined Chelsea and Oliver for their Rudding Park Winter Wedding. The guy’s wanted the relaxed vibe that comes with having everything at one venue and I have to say that if you are looking for something similar you should definitely check out Rudding Park. Here are some of my favourite images from their day.
