A couple of months is plenty of time off from shooting weddings, even when that time has been filled with my first forays into fatherhood!

I couldn’t wait to get behind the camera for Susie and Steve’s wedding at one of my favourite wedding venues in Yorkshire, Rudding Park and it didn’t dissapoint! It was a day filled with fun and laughter and a rocking dancefloor to finish off the day. Here a few of my favourite images from their day.

20151229-Emma and Liam-Wedding Photography-224

My final wedding of 2015 took place on the 29th of December and so, although I took some of my favourite shots of the year, they didn’t make it in to my recent year end roundup.

Emma and Liam swung by my house one night after they finished work and I immediately understood why their wedding wasn’t imminent! Although they were pulling together their wedding plans, they were also planning for the arrival of baby Olivia. I was delighted to meet her a few months before the wedding when we caught up for the pre-wedding shoot and it was clear on the wedding day that she had not only stolen the hearts of Emma and Liam but also her grandparents and the rest of the family. There is something really special about the marriage of couples who have already started their family. It’s hard to put in to words but I think it brings the important stuff of weddings, like the committed love and support of family and friends in to sharper focus.

When Olivia joined Emma and Liam for the first dance, it was one of the cutest moments of the day!
I’m writing this on what will hopefully be our last lazy Saturday for a while. Rache is due to give birth any day and finishing up the images of Emma, Liam and Olivia over the last couple of days has left me even more excited.

Thorpe Park made for a fantastic winter wedding venue. Although the outdoor space is limited, inside there is a wide variety of beautiful spaces to enjoy and create great images.

When it comes time to look back on another year of wedding photography, I’m always struck by how long ago my first wedding of the year feels. Jess and David booked me a couple of years ago because they were eager to secure the date for their valentines day wedding at Selby Abbey and it was a great start to the year.

More Yorkshire weddings followed but 2015 has also seen me make two visits to the Lake District as well as returning closer to home in the Midlands. Next year I’m looking forward to my first wedding in Rache’s homeland, over on the Isle of Man (although technically my first Manx wedding was our own!) as well as trips to London and Cyprus.

Thank you to all the couples who have allowed me to tell their story this year. 2015, you’ve been great! Bring on 2016.
