A Winter wedding near York
When I spoke to Mary and Daniel before their wedding I just knew it was going to be a really enjoyable day to be part of. They talked a lot about wanting a very documentary style, they wanted someone who wasn’t going to dictate and interfere. Although I love couples portraits, the vast majority of time at every wedding I photograph is spent documenting the story of the wedding. It’s what I love to do above anything else. When I take a photograph that is full of emotion, or capture a moment that really sums up the mood of a situation, it gives me so much satisfaction. So the more Mary and Daniel talked, the more I knew we would be a great match, and that I was going to love capturing all of the emotion of their wedding day.
That conversation however, didn’t really prepare me for the warmth and and friendliness I would feel from them as a couple on the day. Every interaction they had with every guest was so full of joy. Every single guest seemed so absorbed in the wedding and full of well wishes.
It’s fair to say it was a wedding of two halves. After the ceremony and some speeches, there was a short break before the evening party began. I loved the room they had set up for the night time dancing. They walked through a wall of smoke into the barn area ready for their first dance. If the party hadn’t started already (which, to fair, it already had), then that sure signified that now was the time for everyone to get dancing and celebrate into the night
