What on earth is an unplugged wedding? To me, unplugged reminds me of the MTV acoustic sessions of the 1990s. In my opinion Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in New York is…
It probably isn’t normal for a wedding photographer to blog about their wedding fayre experiences.
We prefer to share our photos along with stories of wedding days that we capture.(more…)
The first ever DoubleTree by Hilton, York Wedding
This is the story of the first ever wedding at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in York
Let me explain.
For my initial meeting with Nick and Victoria we got together at the Best Western Monkbar Hotel in the centre of York.
The Monkbar Hotel was to be their wedding venue, so it seemed like a good opportunity to combine our planning meeting with a scout around.
The story of a Staindrop Lodge Wedding
I know I come across as polite and well mannered.
Rest assured though, I grew up around the beauty industry. I have seen and heard it all, very little shocks me.
Having said that, Becky’s bridesmaids put in a concerted effort to break through my well trained demeanour.
My poor Unmanned Corner Cam saw things no camera should ever see. I guess I was asking for that by leaving it in a mostly empty room rather than in a busy room where I would usually set it up.

A Rossington Hall Wedding Reception
** This wedding was featured in Love My Dress wedding blog in Jan 2018, which is awesome!
As soon as Kathryn first mentioned Rossington Hall I got excited.
Well, excited and disappointed that I would have to wait a whole year before her and Ste’s wedding day.
I had done my research online, looked at photos of what Rossington Hall looked like on a typical wedding day.
It was only actually a few weeks before the wedding day and we met at the Doncaster venue on an open day that I was able to truly appreciate the beauty of this magnificent house.(more…)
Getting married on a bank holiday in Britain is a bit of a gamble, weather-wise.
Luckily Lyndsey and Steve landed on the first sunny August bank holiday weekend since 1874.
So, here’s the story.(more…)
I arrived at the Consort Hotel in Thurcroft nice and early to find the air conditioner in Colleen’s room dripping on the carpet, the bathroom flooded from the shower and some of the girls suffering from… hay-fever… allegedly.
Still, spirits were high in the face of adversity and everyone was surprisingly calm as the girls gradually transformed into Bridesmaids, Flower Girls and of course, a Bride.
Most of my blog articles recently have been general wedding advice from a bloke’s perspective.
Although I have quite enjoying sharing my experiences I am happy to be blogging a real wedding again.
So, here is the story of Amie and Joe’s St Leonard’s Church and Niagara Club, Sheffield wedding as told by me, their wedding photographer. (more…)
