Yorkshire Wedding Photography | Best of 2016

2016

Wedding Photography Yorkshire | Best of 2016

So, 2016. An unfortunate year for celebrities. And politics. But I have to say it’s been an incredible year for me! This has been my busiest year so far, and I feel very privileged to have been able to capture so many happy couples and families, not to mention 15 brand new humans, and a couple of humans still being cooked! It’s been amazing to meet so many new wedding suppliers this year, and to catch up with some lovely people that I already know. I also want to especially thank Eleanor Woodruff, Tim Dunk and Bhavna Barratt for their assistance and being generally awesome!

It’s taken me far too long to put this collection of images together. In my usual fashion I’ve taken images out and the put them back in again, replaced them and then changed my mind, swapped them for a different orientation and then swapped them back, and generally ummed and aahhed for hours. Because how do you cut out photographs that make you smile because you remember how excited a particular bride-to-be was, or how impressed you were at the skill needed to make that cake/dress/bouquet, or how you had to try not to well up during the father-of-the-bride speech because you couldn’t risk foggy vision!

So this is what I’ve finally narrowed it down to, the best bits of my 2016 (wedding-wise that is, adorable naked babies are still to come!). There might be a touch of grain here and there, or the odd rogue shadow, but all of these images have been chosen because they make me feel something. They bring back a memory or memories of an amazing day that I was lucky enough to be a part of. Or that time I got a bit giddy about the light. Or the shoes…

This collection encompasses everything that wedding photography is about for me; the things that I love to document and the way that I see them. The details are important – dress, flowers, venue, colours, textures, style – because of the love and time that went into choosing them. And of course there are the big events – getting into your wedding gown, the ring exchanges, speeches, bouquet toss, first dance, I could go on! But I also love the in-between moments that you don’t even notice at the time; a glance, a smile, a hand squeeze. Magic.

Enjoy, and bring on 2017! x

I'm Laura. Oh, hey!

PHOTOGRAPHER.

STORYTELLER.

MOTHER.

FLORAL ADDICT.

I live near Ilkley with my slightly* nutty 3 year old Rose, and I have had the honour of photographing weddings and families for 5 years now. I genuinely cannot believe how lucky I am that I get to call this my job.

*I say slightly, she recently told me that traffic lights are the bane of her life, and she names everything "Cantameen". Send help!

I love photographing people. Whether it's your wedding day, you're expecting or have just had a baby, or you simply want to capture your loved ones the way they are right now, my aim is to document unique moments in time to create a beautiful set of images that you will treasure for many years to come. My style combines photojournalism with beautiful portraits, and my fun and relaxed approach makes you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera – I want you to actually enjoy having your photograph taken!

Although I’m based near Ilkley I cover all of Yorkshire and I’m actually happy to travel anywhere for weddings and portrait shoots. So if you have any questions then please get in touch using one of my contact forms. In the meantime, grab a cuppa and browse through my wedding or portrait galleries, or take a look at my most recent work on the blog

I can't wait to hear from you x
