One sunny Sunday a few weeks back I joined Matt & Simon for their pre-wedding practice pics at Yorebridge House, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
It the boutique country inn they’ll be getting married in this Saturday, in the village of Bainbridge, near Hawes. With hot tubs in many of the rooms and the picturesque location, it’s no surprise it’s been voted the most romantic hotel in the UK by tripadvisor!
So – these shoots are all about getting a couple comfortable in front of the camera – giving them time to relax into the process and enjoy each others company, so I can capture their affection for one another. Plus it makes the big day shoot much quicker and easier for all of us! So – after the usual, initially awkward start (as after all, most people haven’t had these kind of shoots done professionally before), this lovely pair soon got used to it, and I’m really pleased with the photos!
Check out the highlights below, setting the scene on my drive up into the Dales, a quick round of portraits around Yorebridge House, and a few more up at Aysgarth Falls … a spot Simon loves in part because Robin Hood Prince of Thieves was filmed there!
We got a bit lost trying to find a way down to the falls!
So here’s looking forward to Saturday’s fun up at Yorebridge! Stay tuned for their blog of highlights a few days later!
