Yesterday I joined Katie + Dale to shoot the wedding photography at their relaxed big day at The Pheasant in Harome, near Helmsley over the North Yorkshire Moors.
The day went off without a hitch! Storm Dorris made a valiant effort to ruin all the hard work put in by the hairdressers, but it didn’t drizzle as forecast and we managed to get fab confetti shots, groups and portraits all done outside (which doesn’t always happen in February!).
Hamish and I really enjoyed joining Team Bride and Team Groom for their preparations around the Pheasant’s lovely rooms, and it was shoot a wedding for a family who grew up in Harome (Katie’s parents got married in the very same church over the road from the Pheasant). The village is also home to The Star Inn (known for being 2017’s best Michelin-Starred gastro pub in the country, no less) – and being a famous exec chef himself, Dale used to actually work under The Star’s head chef. So he and his boys ate there the night before the wedding.
It was great to see Katie & her girls looking so stunning and Dale and his dudes looking dapper in tails and grey tweed waistcoats. And as always, I just love The Pheasant; not just for it’s amazing food & brilliant staff, but also the homely but fantastically stylish country lodge stylings. This part of the world is just such a perfect spot to host a very Yorkshire wedding celebration.
As well as the highlights in this blog post, you can also view & purchase prints from Kate + Dale’s wedding (including their pre-wedding shoot and view the full set of wedding images) at clients.barnabyaldrick.com/KateAndDale (the password is the brides surname and the grooms surname, eg. SmithJones).
Check it out – here’s a taste of my highlights from the story of Katie & Dale’s February wedding at The Pheasant…
Fun times hey! What a lovely day all round. It looks like exactly the day they hoped for, with great food, relaxed vibes and time to celebrate in the company of their family, children and close pals.
Congratulations Katie + Dale! We hope you have a fab life together,
Barnaby + Hamish
