Crown Hotel Harrogate Wedding Photographer | Megan & Richard

Crown Hotel Harrogate Wedding Photographer | Megan & Richard

Crown Hotel Harrogate Wedding Photographer. This gorgeous pair were married at All Saints Church in Otley before heading over to The Crown Hotel in Harrogate for their reception.

I spent a fun and relaxed a couple of hours with Megan at her parents home in Otley where she was getting ready surrounded by family, friends and bridesmaids. Megan was ready with plenty of time to spare so we managed a few photos before I made my way into Otley to see Richard and the boys at the church.

After the ceremony we ran through a few close family photos at the church doors before the rest of the guests piled out for hugs and hellos! Megan & Richard then exited through very well executed confetti tunnel down the church path and we all waited to see them off before making our way to Harrogate. The wedding guests in a vintage bus, me in my faithful Beetle. With no air conditioning, argh!!

I arrived at the hotel first so I snuck inside to get some shots of everything set up for the wedding breakfast. Once the guests had arrived everyone headed in for a drink whilst I kept Megan & Richard outside for some shots with the bus. We then wandered over to the nearby Valley Gardens (which I LOVE!) for a few more photos and then I released them back to the party!

After dinner and some hilarious speeches there was a bit of a break so that people could check in, and have another drink, obviously 😀 The sun was just starting to go down so I grabbed Megan & Richard for a couple of shots near the Royal Pump Room which handily is just next door to the hotel and looked amazing in the evening light.

We headed back inside for the cake cutting and first dance, and just like that it was time for me to go and leave everyone to enjoy the night!

Almost everything at this wedding was made by friends and/or family so I have no supplier shout outs to finish with! Though if you think your name should be on here then please do let me know! And if you’re planning a wedding at The Crown Hotel Harrogate then please contact me and tell me more! x

    Oh, hey!I'm Laura.





    I live near Ilkley with my slightly* nutty 4 year old Rose, and I have had the honour of photographing weddings and families for 6 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
