Everyone needs friends like James & Harriet, they brighten lives.
Very fortunate to be able to photograph their wedding at such a unique (or it would be if Harriet didn’t have 5 sisters) wedding venue but time was running short for a walk up the hill, through their woods and into the fields and heather. With not a lot of time its fortunate that (despite James being very tall) they fit together perfectly for photos. I didn’t try and pose these images, the only credit I take is that I gave the freedom and confidence to be themselves.
James & Harriets notes:
Theme & Locations: We both wanted a wedding with as little faff as possible, so a country wedding seemed perfect. Harriet’s parents live on a farm with a large garden which her sisters have previously used as the location for their wedding receptions; this made it a perfect location for us. The marquee and the food for the reception were supplied by Poppy Caterers, who are based in York. We had the ceremony at Moorhouse Methodist Church, which James has been a part of since birth. This made it the ideal place for us to have the ceremony, even if it was a little small…
Flowers: we wanted fresh and simple flowers that looked liked they could’ve just been picked from the garden. We chose to use our local florist (House Of Flowers, Milnrow) who we knew were great at weddings and could do anything we required. We told them exactly what we wanted and they surpassed our greatest expectations. They did a fantastic job!
As part of our wedding reception we had a Ceilidh which was great fun for everyone, even if they couldn’t dance. We had hysterical laughter as people went dizzily spinning about.
Andrew was brilliant. As soon as we met him we knew he would be perfect for our wedding. Before the wedding, he came to see the farm and had a good look around, scouting out the perfect photo opportunities for the day. On the day he was there bright and early, and seemed to be in multiple locations at once! He captured every aspect of our day without being obtrusive. We really don’t like posing for pictures and can feel awkward when people start taking photos, but with Andrew, he really made us feel comfortable. The majority of the shots happened naturally and we didn’t have to think about posing so could just enjoy the day.
Thank you Andrew for capturing our special day perfectly and providing us with some wonderful pictures to go with our happy memories.
