Middleton Lodge Wedding Photography | Chloe + Aston.

Middleton Lodge Wedding Photography. I still can’t quite believe how lucky we were with the weather for Chloe and Aston’s big day at Middleton Lodge! It was throwing down when I arrived at the Coach House where bridal prep was underway! Amazingly it eased off as we all decamped to the bridal suite over in the main house, where Chloe’s mum helped her into her incredible Pronovias gown.

Chloe had managed to keep her dress a secret from her bridesmaids as well has her dad and they were all blown away by how amazing she looked when we finally let them in! I left them all to enjoy a quick glass of fizz and made my way down to say hi to Aston and get a few candid shots before the ceremony. The rain had stopped and the sky over Middleton was suddenly a beautiful blue, but the ground was so waterlogged that the outdoor ceremony was definitely off! Which meant that guests were seated at the bottom of the amazing staircase inside the main house – not too shabby for a backup location!

Once everyone was seated (and lined up and on the stairs!) Chloe and her bridesmaids made their entrance down the sweeping staircase and down the aisle to where Aston was waiting. We were joined by Alex and Matt from York Place Wedding Films who were amazing and so lovely to work with. Alex and I were side-by-side at the front of the room capturing all of the laughter and emotion of the wedding ceremony, which went off without a hitch! Afterwards Chloe and Aston walked back up the aisle and out to the front of the house whilst their guests were led out to the gardens to line up for a confetti tunnel. Chloe and Aston then reappeared to great cheers and Aston seemed to receive the brunt of the confetti! I let them have a bit of a breather so they could grab a drink and say hi to people before moving on to their group photos. The clouds were moving in so we jumped straight into the couple portraits just in case. Typically the clouds just rolled past and the sun shone again as I made my way to the marquee to get some detail shots. It looked amazing inside with beautiful floral displays by Briar House Flowers.

Before long everyone was asked to take their seats in the marquee for the wedding breakfast. The speeches were between courses and were fantastic – Chloe and Aston’s dads both said a few words which was lovely, and I loved the game of Mr and Mrs that best man Josh got everyone involved in.

The rain had started up again during the meal and was on and off for the rest of the night but we managed to get some more shots of Chloe and Aston at the front of the house. I also witnessed a seriously bizarre game at the pool table – just what happens when you get the stag do back together again, give them free booze and free reign of a pool table, I suppose!

Once the marquee was ready for the evening reception and the band were set up it was time for the first dance and the party. And this was a group that knew how to party! The dance floor was full for the entire first set and was still heaving when the saxophonist and DJ came out and I made my way home.

Thank you Chloe and Aston for trusting me to photograph your wedding, it was an absolute pleasure! If you’re planning a wedding at Middleton Lodge please do contact me, I’d love to hear more!

    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
