I’m always happy when I get the call about Roundhay Park Wedding Photography. The Mansion in the park is a fantastic venue and the surrounding parkland makes for a beautiful backdrop. One of the biggest challenges is creating images which aren’t littered with all the other people at the park.

Sameera and Afiq could of picked many locations for their wedding. The couple were joined by guests from Edinburgh, where Sameera studied. Afiq brought a handful of friends and family over from Australia, the place that the happy couple will be calling home after their honeymoon. In recent years the pair have notched up some serious airmiles on their journey’s between hemispheres. I know they are both excited to be settling down on the same continent at last.

I got a bit of a taste of what it must be like trying to arrange a wedding across continents as we fumbled our way through various Skype and phone calls in the run up to the wedding. However, all the hard work paid off and the day provided a fantastic celebration across two ceremonies and a wonderful meal.

The day brought together elements from Sameera and Afiq’s Muslim faith and Afiq’s ancestral home of Malaysia. Quirkiest of these, for me, was the handing out of boiled eggs at the end of the celebrations as a sign of good luck and fertility!

Here are some of my favourite images from Sameera and Afiq’s Roundhay Park Wedding Photography.



Your Roundhay Park Wedding Photography

To discuss availability for your Roundhay Park wedding photography or your wedding anywhere in Yorkshire, UK or the world get in touch. I’d love to hear about your plans and find out more about you.

Every once in a while, a bride sends you details of their chosen wedding venue and you can’t help but get excited. Whether it’s open countryside or beautiful architecture, one of the things that makes the job of a wedding photographer that little bit easier is a stunning venue. So it was with Georgie and Michael’s The Arches Halifax wedding photography last month.

The day began at Shibden Mill Inn where Georgie and her bridesmaids were enjoying relaxing preparations owing to the couples decision for a later than usual ceremony at 4pm. Despite the late start, the guys still managed to pack in a whole lot of fun, emotion and partying with the help of friends and family to provide musical accompaniment, including a specially written and performed song by Dunc, Georgie’s dad.

Georgie is an events manager at the University of Bradford and admitted that, at times, pulling together her big day didn’t feel too different to a day in the office. Nevertheless, she had the guys from Mode For events on hand to take the reigns and ensure that she could concentrate on her day as the bride.


During our initial conversations, Georgie warned me that Michael was not looking forward to having the camera or the attention of all those friends and family trained on him for the day. I reassured her that I like to melt in to the background as much as possible, which is more than can be said for Michael, who rose to the occasion with aplomb, including a killer speech.

York Maze Wedding Photography! Who knew such a wonderful wedding venue existed alongside a huge adventure playground and one of York’s favourite seasonal attractions.

The maze itself is still growing and while it does, York Maze opens its doors to couples who want to celebrate their wedding in style at the venues converted barns.

The whole day had a really relaxed feel and Jenny and Ben did a fantastic job decorating the venue, subtly bringing in a dinosaur theme.

York Maze wedding photography is a breeze thanks to the fantastic range of locations across the site that provided lots of inspiration. It took me a little while to understand that Ben wanted photos on the pillow rather than some random pillar but once I saw the inflatable fun times were had by all bouncers!

Jenny and Ben wanted a relaxed day surrounded by friends and family and that’s just what they got. As the sun shone, they pushed backed the main meal while enjoying the canapés and the fantastic weather. Later in the night the barn was filled with live music and dancing as the sun set over the site.

If you are interested in York Maze wedding photography then you should know that the venue is only available for weddings for a short period each year, before throwing open its doors for the main attraction over the summer but if you are looking for a venue in the area I’d highly recommend you check it out.

One of my new favourite places to shoot is Northumberland. I have three weddings booked here in 2017, Wood Hill Hall Wedding Photography for Rebecca and Tom. We decided to make a weekend of it as the venue is a little further afield. So I headed up the A1 with Rache and Issy in tow. This gave us the chance to take in the beautiful scenery before the big day.

For Rebecca and Tom, there long search for the perfect wedding venue quickly came to an end at Wood Hill Hall. The intimate spaces and beautiful views across the surrounding fields, made it a wonderful location for their day. The quirky decor in the accommodation and variety of spaces on offer meant I had lots to explore as a wedding photographer.

I originally met Rebecca and Tom in York and we explored Holmfirth for their pre-wedding shoot, which isn’t far from where Tom originally grew up. The shoot gave us the opportunity to chat some more about their big day and also put them at ease. This meant that we could all enjoy a relaxed wedding day, confident that we’d be able to capture some great shots together. Here are some of my favourite images from Rebecca and Tom’s day.
