Yorkshire Wedding Photo Highlights incoming! Another year has flown by. At risk of sounding like a Nana, they seem to go quicker every year!
2023 was my 11th wedding season, I actually can’t believe it. I remember so well back in 2012 when I was mid-PhD and pretty miserable, second shooting weddings on the weekends and wondering if I’d be able to make a go of it on my own. And here I am, over 300 weddings later – blows my mind!
Anyway, back to 2023. What a cracking wedding season it has been. From Spring blossom to autumn leaves, plenty of rain in August and sweltering heat in early September! I’ve loved it all.
I always enjoy doing an annual roundup of my favourite photos from the year. It’s so nice to look back at all my happy couples and reminisce about their wedding days. That’s exactly why I do this job – to try and take people back to a moment in time and remember how they felt. I can’t ever really say why I pick the ones I do, probably there’s lots of reasons. Sometimes it’s the light dahling. Always it’s the people. And of course the dogs haha! Below you’ll find 150 of my faves from 2023 (I’m sorry, that’s as far as I could go narrowing it down!). First there’s a slideshow or keep scrolling to each pic in all it’s glory! You’ll see there are lots of “in betweens” – a laugh in between group photos, a tear in between speeches, a look in between vows. Those are my favourite things to capture on a wedding day. Plus there’s plenty of unrestrained joy, some relaxed couple portraits, sweet moments with friends and family, and some mad dance floor action. Basically all the things I want from a wedding day!
Huge thanks to my ace second shooters this year – Lissa Alexandra, Jamie Sia and Matt Sim. And also to all the lovely suppliers I’ve worked with and venues I’ve worked at. Including The Tithe Barn, Rudding Park, Goldsborough Hall, Ripley Castle, The Chilli Barn, Priory Cottages, Thirsk Lodge Barns, Woodstock Weddings, Falcon Manor, Newby Hall and many more! We are so spoilt for choice with amazing wedding venues in Yorkshire!
That’s enough from me. Enjoy my 2023 highlights, and bring on 2024! (And def get in touch with me if you’re planning your wedding for 2024 and beyond!) x
