I never dreamt I would ever be writing a blog in a pandemic but here we are, lockdown No3 and keeping everything crossed for a brilliant year ahead. Last year started off amazing with a beautiful Asian wedding spread over two days, that was back in February. Little did I know then what was about to happen, something that would change everything, upside down, and inside out.  But let’s not dwell on the negatives and let’s look at the positives instead.

I had a BLAST…ok…perhaps not quite a blast, but when the few weddings that did take place, happened, there was an unmistaken beauty to them. There was a uniqueness all of their own. Gone was some of the frivolity, often seen at so many weddings, but there remained a closeness, a humanity, a love, It is something that is always there, but now it seemed to become even more present. Perhaps it was more of a feeling on my part, given the circumstances we found ourselves in, but there just seemed to be more of the true essence of a wedding day. Even through the masks, and social distancing, the feeling of love and affection, was unmistakingly present, here are a few images from one such wedding, the beautiful Yorkshire Wedding day of Anna and Daniel.

 

A Beautiful Yorkshire Wedding

The beautiful Anna, a gorgeous soul that invited me to spend the day with her and Daniel in Yorkshire, so delicate a bride and so wonderful to see her looking so gorgeous on her wedding day.

Fleeting moments are what I look for, this took me by surprise as I truly wasn’t quite prepared, but even so the image has an energy, a life a beauty all of its own.

Here we see the gorgeous Anna about to enter the Church, alongside her is Anna’s sister a beautiful, and very special, bridesmaid.

Just moments prior to entering the Church, Anna’s nerves are hidden below her beautiful veil…moments like these are so fleeting, so precious and so beautiful.

I love abstract images, looking for something out of nothing, these may well be a bit “marmite” but sometimes I do try and capture a few selfish frames and hope that the “art” speaks for me. Here’s one such image.

As Anna and her Father make their way into the Church things start to happen, got to be fast. I like to try and work the angles as much as possible, always working quickly and instinctively.

There was a hefty restriction in the Church so sadly most images were from some distance and at the back of the Church were I was unable to move from. This was the only part of the whole day that I couldn’t help but to feel the true effects of the pandemic. Usually I like to get up front for all the emotions and the rings being exchanged, but that was just not meant to be. The rest of the day that followed can only be described as truly magical. I loved every single moment with this engaging and wonderful couple. Their joy and commitment to making the very best of the situation was and always will be commendable.  Even a few weeks prior to their special day it was uncertain as to what tier they would find themselves in, and if I could even make it.

But make it we did and what a joyous and amazing day it was.

Here are a few images from my time as a Yorkshire wedding photographer, truly enjoyed this being part of this beautiful wedding, I hope you enjoy these images.

After leaving the Church we then made our way to a very small wedding reception at the most beautiful of place in Yorkshire, somewhere I have never been before, but will always have “that” special place in my heart now. A gorgeous setting for this beautiful couples family to celebrate their marriage, the amazing Woodhall Hall.

There is so much more I could share with you guys about this amazing wedding, I was totally in awe of this young couple who, against all the odds, pulled it out of the “pandemic” bag, and persevered with their plans. Yes the original plans had changed, massively so, but that didn’t let it spoil the day for them, thank you for having me along guys.

Here’s to a bigger, better and more wonderful 2021 for you guys, your family and friends….and for all of us.
