Hannah and John

September 19, 2017

When I was asked to photograph the wedding of Hannah and John at Priory Cottages I was so excited as it's a venue I absolutely love photographing. Priory Cottages is situated in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside and consists of a huge converted barn with several surrounding cottages. The wedding party takes over the whole estate which allows the couple to put their stamp on the venue and transform it into their personalised bespoke wedding, which Hannah and John really did take advantage of. This wedding was beautiful.... the venue, the finishing touches, the weather and the gorgeous couple....the photographs really are special.

The day started in one of the cottages getting ready with the bridal party. The bridesmaids wore floor length blush gowns, in keeping with the ivory and blush colour scheme of the wedding, and Hannah looked stunning in her lace , mermaid style wedding dress. The ladies all wore ivory pearls in their tousled hair, really channeling the beautiful boho vibe which I just love!

 

My favourite pictures are the unposed ones that capture the instant, genuine reactions of the people at the wedding. In particular I love capturing the moment the bride is revealed to her bridesmaids....

 

Whilst I hung out with the bridal party, my second shooter spent the morning with the groom and his groomsmen....who all looked very handsome! They all worse navy suits which complimented the blush colour scheme wonderfully. 

 The ceremony took place in the barn. The exposed wooden beams were draped in twinkling fairy lights which really gave a magical and romantic feeling the room....
