Last week I joined the lovely Lisa & Toby to photograph their wedding at Hazlewood Castle, out near Wetherby between Leeds and York.
I love shooting at Hazlewood, especially on a stunning sunny day like this.
They were both cool in front of my lens because of our Hazlewood pre-wed the week before (see post here).
Lisa spent the morning in a laid-back (& more mobile) white dress that she switched into for the evening do.
Here she is taking a moment in her actual bridal gown. Stunning eh?
I don’t often go for ‘serious’ standing-pensively-in-the-window setups, but I couldn’t help myself…
Her ladies in waiting were in a most excellent Ultramarine colour
I didn’t set this up either; and love the composition they’ve all fallen into. I think it has an ancient painterly quality to it.
I was in on a little surprise Lisa had been planning for Toby. She’d arranged to get a helecopter over from near their house to Hazlewood Castle.
Apparently, chartering a helecopter to your wedding isn’t far off the cost of hiring a tasty wedding car – they used a company called Helejet.
Here’s the dudes looking well chuffed, just after they got out of the chopper.
I won’t lie I was gutted Clare got to fly with them and I didn’t! She said it was amazing.
Mr & Mrs, down the isle!
Out back at Hazlewood, suppin on pimms
I quite like the fact that on one confetti shot of mine, the focus switched back to some nearby confetti, leaving them soft.
A pleasant accident!
Down in Hazlewood’s ‘tunnel of love’
There are loads of cool places to shoot around the castle…
Including a French-feel veranda outside
I quite like this set of speeches too. It’s always nice trying to capture each persons speech story; be it the dad getting an applause, the groom proudly presenting his new wife, the best man embarrassing his pal and a double thumbs up from the groom. Happy days.
Thank you so much to both Lisa & Toby for asking us along to join them on their wonderful wedding day at Hazlewood Castle. Thank you also to the excellent staff, particularly Amanda & Guy, for feeding & watering us & generally being ace.
I’ll get their images to them soon, and we’ll host a client area for guests to see their finished images, but in the meantime I hope Lisa & Toby are enjoying their honeymoon in Greece, Italy & Croatia!
