Ilkley Wedding Photographer, Yorkshire Wedding Photography, Cow and Calf Ilkley,  Ilkley West View Park Darwin Gardens Photography,

Very soon I’ll be joining Hannah + James for their big day at Goldsborough Hall, between Harrogate & Knaresborough in North Yorkshire!

Readers of this blog will know I like to do a practice round of pics with my couples before their big day, to get them comfortable in front of the camera.  If I’ve not shot somewhere before I generally meet them at their venue, to scope out locations and such, but if it’s somewhere I’ve shot before – like I have the lovely Goldsborough Hall – I let the couples choose somewhere they like for the shoot!

Hannah + James decided Ilkley might be special, and instead of meeting at the popular Cow + Calf rocks, they chose to meet just down the road at the lesser known ‘Darwin Gardens’ (AKA: West View Park).  I’ve never been before, and they’re lovely, with views of the infamous Cow + Calf, without being so exposed on the blowy moor!  Not a place to be on a blowy day, bar t’hat!


These are a few highlights from our wander around Ilkley Moor and around the Darwin Gardens, and it was really rather lovely to spend some time with this sweet pair…

It’s going to be a fun wedding, especially with James in his military uniform!  Always looks super smart!

Stay tuned here for their wedding highlights a day or two after their Big Day!
