Carol & Jon [Wedding]

One sunny weekend a few weekends back I joined Carol, Jon & gang for their wedding at Goldsborough Hall in North Yorkshire.  It was such a lovely, downtempo affair on a glorious day.  Being their second marriages, they didn’t want to over egg the pudding and go over the top.  I personally think they hit […]

Angie & Chris [Wedding]

Not too long ago was the wonderful wedding of Angie & Chris. The weekend before and weekend after were glorious, but their date sadly fell on a rainy one in between. But hey – as I always say, in England most of a wedding is spent indoors, and if a window arises as showers lighten, […]

Caroline & Damien [Wedding]

The sun certainly was smiling on Damien & Caroline on their wedding day back on the last weekend in May – so much so that I inadvertently topped up my sunburn.  Clare & I had a lovely day photographing the goings on, at respective parental digs round Roundhay, at the Church on Harrogate Road & […]

Kate & Andy [Wedding]

Kate & Andy’s wedding a few weeks back was quite possibly one of my favourite weddings yet. It was held in the amazing Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, Britain’s only intact medieval castle.  Not only was the venue picturesque (including mincing peacocks), the weather glorious, and my photographic company sterling (Phil Barber came along for the […]

An excellent first dance song choice!

Last weekend I shot Angie & Chris’s wedding at Hey Green, a fabulous venue deep in the rolling Yorkshire countryside.  The week previous I’d been posting about how summer’d come and showed all those suns on a BBC weather screendump.  Well, mother nature’s mood had changed somewhat when I did the ol’ morning forcast… “Cool […]

June pre-wed blitz! [Pre-Weds]

Well it’s shooting season again! Weddings are rolling up & through thick and fast now. I don’t think I’ve a free weekend till mid August.  B man’s starting to envy these kids throwing mad weddings & bouncing off to Mauritius to chill in stilted huts!  But summer’s filled with cool clients and cool places to […]

Some like it hot!

I take very little heed of weather forecasts, especially the 5 day forcast.  It’s an educated guess and I’ve rarely seen it be right.  But I do like to check the ‘Next 24 Hours’ bit before setting out, to see the shape of the day.  Last Thursday’s wedding at the amazing Peckforton Castle was as […]

Carly & Darren [Wedding] 24th May 2009

So – Carly & Darren’s big day arrived, and the weather was gorgeous! I managed to get sunburnt, in Yorkshire in May! Check the sunshine… This is Oulton Hall, a luxury Hotel and Spa in South Leeds.  This was the first time I’d done a wedding here and it’s a stunning building.  It’s recently had […]

A snap I liked

I saw this while I was out with my camera and it caught my eye. Something inside of me always wants to know what’s left and why we’re being told to go right.  No doubt it’s for our own good (turning into oncoming traffic isn’t big or clever), but it philosophically never hurts to check. […]

Mark Geary at the Sunday Service

You may know I shoot a lot of music with Phil Barber for The Sound Gallery in and around the North of England.  I also help run an acoustic night called The Sunday Service down in Verve Bar’s cellars on the last Sunday of every month.  Last month we flew over a very special Irishman […]
