Charlotte & Johan’s Newburgh Priory / PapaKata TeePee Tent Wedding Photography

I love a PapaKata wedding, there is just something so nice about them. No matter what the weather the atmosphere is always great, just what you need for a wedding. Newburgh Priory made the perfect location for it too. I loved the owners relaxed, friendly and welcoming approach to letting people hold their wedding within their beautiful grounds.

Charlotte & Johan were very lucky, they had planned a wonderful day that even got me nearly crying at one point…

So what got me almost to tears ??? The Speeches! Right at the end one of Johan’s Swedish Cousin’s jumped out of his seat and started singing. Then another cousin joined in, and another, and another. Wining a few minutes all the Swedish family were singing, clearly something they had practiced well, and they ended on “All you need is Love”. A truly special and unexpected moment! I went home with that warm wedding glow, which is what the whole thing is about really !!!

The weather even held out at Cubley Hall for the entire day, which is always a good thing! Also always nice to see lovely people again, you may have spotted I photographed Amy & Dan’s wedding last year and they had star roles as Chief Bridesmaid and Bestman here! I know Ruth & Tim had an amazing honeymoon in Australia, I hope it was the perfect start to many many years together.

Wedding Albums – Why I Only Offer the Very Best UK Made Albums

In this age of digital imagry physically printing your wedding images may seem to be somewhat old fashioned, but  Wedding Albums buck the trend and are something most of my couples seek out and want to see when choosing a Wedding Photographer. Many go on to order an album with me once they have their images.

Viewing images on a laptop is ok, but a back-lit screen is never going to show the images as I intend them to be seen. All prints are not created equally either, sure you can get prints made for under 10p these days, but these prints won’t have had careful attention to detail to get the most from the image, which is why I pride myself on the printed products I offer.

I offer albums and prints made right here in Yorkshire by a great company called Folio. It’s a difficult choice putting all your eggs in one basket, but when you know something is right it’s just right! When ever I get an album back from them I take a good look through it and I am always impressed by the quality, the fine art prints always look exactly how I want them to and I am yet to find prints that are more impressive.

I felt very lucky to be invited recently to make a short video called “Handmade” about Folio and the craft that goes into each and every album, you can currently see that video on the front page of their site, or just watch it below…

 

 

Here is a look behind the scenes of the video production…

 

Folio Albums BTS

 

As you can see Stewart is very passionate about his product, as are all the chaps (and chapettes) at Folio. This passion for their product flows down to every detail, I found the attention shown to the prints to be incredible, the leather work to be impressive and the overall care the team show for their clients albums to be inspirational. Those that know me well will know that is not praise given easily.

 

I am proud to be using a world class product sourced locally, it makes both economic and environmental sense to seek out such suppliers. I am proud to offer Folio Albums to my clients, they are the very best way to preserve your images for generations to come.

 

Here are a few shots I took of the team…

Denton Hall Wedding Photography – Amie & Luke

What a way to kick off the 2014 season! A Valentine’s themed wedding at one of my favourite places Denton Hall. Amie & Luke’s guests were in for a fun filled day! A Magician and a crazy windy heart shaped balloon release were the top of the moments for me…

The Wish Tree Foundation Prohibition Ball Charity Photo Booth

It was an honour to be asked along to run a photo booth for The Wish Tree Foundation‘s Charity Prohibition Ball last night in Harrogate. All sorts of sordid and illegal behaviour was going on behind the closed doors at The Cedar Court Hotel…
