Last Bank Holiday Monday my wingman Drew and I joined Jess + Jon for their wedding photography at Chevin Country Park in Otley, in North Yorkshire!
It was such fun joining these two for their nuptials – this pair really do make me laugh, with endless silly banter and joking about! While Jon’s from the UK and Jess from Hong Kong; Jess came to the UK to study, and after falling in love, they relocated to Phuket in Thailand, settling down with their dog! They wanted a lovely Yorkshire wedding, and friends and family came all the way from China and the far East. But they weren’t after a traditional day; they weren’t fussed about photographs getting ready, were happy to mingle with guests before the ceremony, they didn’t want speeches, first dances or to go overboard dressing up the tables for a relaxed hog roast dinner. It was quite refreshing actually, focussed entirely on getting dear friends and family together for a celebration! And that it was – a fun and informal day, around the Chevin Lodge lake, in the sunshine, in a stunning part of Wharfdale between Leeds and Ilkley – made extra special by catching the last rays of the day up on the Chevin itself…
As well as this highlights blog, I’ll be uploading their full set of images to a password protected client area in a few weeks, so if you’d like to be notified when all their images go live, register your email address at: clients.barnabyaldrick.com/JessAndJon. (NB: I’ll only use your email address to notify you about their gallery!)
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these fun teasers from their wedding story…
What a lovely day hey!? It was such a pleasure to be asked along to tell this relaxed story!
Here’s wishing Jess + Jon huge congratulations and here’s hoping they enjoy the first part of their honeymoon, by heading to Barcelona to enjoy their friends wedding!
