Hello, welcome to my blog.
I was so excited for this one. My first wedding of 2018 at the gorgeous venue The Talbot in Malton.
Do you remember all of that snow in the UK in March? That was a week or so before this day, I kept checking the weather app daily, hoping that by the wedding date the snow will have subsided and hopefully the sun will make an appearance.
I must have not been the only one to wish this as thankfully the weather took a turn and it was a beautiful, fresh Spring weather when the day arrived.
I had been excited ever since Stacie told me her plans of the day, the decor and styling sounded amazing and I couldn't wait to photograph it.
I shall begin where the day began, at Stacie's Mum's house where the bridal party began their preparations for the big day . . .
Fraser and his grooms men were already at the venue. I had a wonderful second shooter with me for this wedding and she met Fraser there and captured some groom prep as I travelled from Copmanthorpe to Malton. This is the beauty of having two photographers, nothing gets missed! :-)
When I arrived I went to view the venue and marquee which looked breathtaking. I had visited it previously to see it with Stacie so I knew what to expect, but with her styling and details it looked incredible.
As Stacie and her family arrived at the venue I captured lots of candid moments, I like to capture the day as it unfolds, capturing the details and emotions as they naturally happen.
The Ceremony took place in the marquee, it was beautiful and romantic and I could feel the joy and happiness in the room. Their faces say it all.
As the guests relaxed in the marquee and building we went for a wander through the grounds to take some portraits of the newlyweds. (no snow yay!)
It was a lovely walk and nice for them to both spend some time with one another just catching up on their days so far.
The meal and evening reception was held in the marquee, there was all sorts of fun throughout the evening, such as a vintage Photo Booth that the guests LOVED, a live band that the guests LOVED, a Gin table full of gin-tastic goodies, you guessed it, the guests loved that too! (wouldn’t we all?!)
Thank you so much Stacie + Fraser for asking me to capture your beautiful day. It really was stunning and such a fantastic start to my wedding season!
If you are interested in your own wedding photography please contact me, I would love to hear from you and discuss your plans.
Thank you x
