First Dance Inspiration

April 18, 2014

Happy Easter everyone! Just a quick note to wish everyone a fantastic Easter break and to share with you something I’ve been putting together over recent weeks.

Leeds Wedding Photography - Old Swan Hotel Harrogate

Choosing the music for your first dance can be an important decision. Sometimes it’s about choosing a song that has been important to you for a long time or, like Rache and I, you might pick a current song which you hope will provide a reminder of your wedding day for years to come.



A little while ago, over on Facebook, I asked people to share their first dance songs and from this I’ve put together a Spotify playlist to provide ideas and inspiration for other couples. I’ll also be adding all of the first dances I hear in the future, providing me with my own record of the weddings I shoot. I hope you enjoy listening to the list and please feel free to add your own ideas or first dance song in the comments below.

Kirkstall Abbey – Jess and Joe Portraits

April 6, 2014

When it comes to locations in and around Leeds we really are spoilt for choice but there are some places that pop up time and again and Kirkstall Abbey is one of them. It must be one of the most photographed locations in Leeds and whenever I’m there I’m always trying to look with fresh eyes and find new images.

I met up with Jess and Joe at the Abbey for their pre-wedding portraits. I’m looking forward to joining them next month for their wedding day.

Jenny and Craig Portraits

March 25, 2014

Two pre-wedding shoots in one day are a rarity, but after checking in with Nicola and Peter at Grove house I headed up to Helperby to meet Jenny and Craig. As this was my first time in the area I arrived early to scout out some locations and was really pleased when the guys made similar suggestions! Here are some of my favourites.

Grove House Harrogate – Nicola and Peter Portraits

March 23, 2014

A couple of weeks ago, on a beautiful sunny Sunday I got the chance to catch up with two of my couples getting married later this year. The sun was shining and it felt like spring was finally here. First up was Nicola and Peter who’ll be getting married at Grove House in Harrogate. Here are some of my favourites from their shoot. Enjoy!
