York Wedding Photographers
Fun & Natural Wedding Photography
As York wedding photographers, we get to shoot some of the most awesome weddings and I am so super excited to share this one! It is funny the convoluted ways some of your most favourite weddings find you and Robyn & Dan’s journey to us was a long one. About 5 years ago I became friends with the lovely Phoebe at So You’re Getting Married and she introduced me to a super-awesome stationer named Nat (from I am Nat – check out her stuff!) and years later Nat asked for a little bit of help learning to improve her photography skills. So we decided the best way to learn was for her to jump into the deep end and photograph a couple’s session. After a little cajoling, Nat’s brother Dan, and his (then) girlfriend, Robyn, volunteered. A few days later we all took a stomp out to the allotments near our home office and took some super fun photographs and Nat did an absolutely bang-up job learing to be a photographer extraordinaire.
Fast forward a few years and Dan & Robyn decided it was time to make it legit and I was OVER THE MOON when they got in touch to ask us to photograph their wedding. After the portrait session, I knew how absolutely amazing their day was going you be. One of the advantasges of being a wedding photographer for so many years is that you get a nose for a good party. And oh man – I wasn’t wrong.
Robyn & Dan decided to tie the knot at Brockhall as it is her parent’s home and conveniently has the most gorgeous grounds and even its own little church (as you do!). Robyn wore the most stunning Ian Stuart dress and her mother even surprised her with an amazing personalised sketch of her dress made by Ian Stuart himself. Nat helped with the stationery (of course!) and the marquee looked absolutely immense with giant paper poufs hanging from the ceiling and perfectly coordinated tabletops. The weather was absolutely wild all day with lots of sunshine and then random moments of crazy pouring rain. But Robyn and Dan didn’t let it phase them even a little bit – not even a smidge.
The whole day was filled with so many smiles, laughs, tears and fun – that it was a photographer’s dream. Not to mention the fearless way Robyn wore her dress – stomping out like a real country girl in her wellies to get some photos out on the tree swing.
The day capped off with a fantastic dance party and a special dance for Robyn & her dad (I am such a fan of parent/child dances).
Ahhhh Robyn & Dan – I loved photographing your wedding and Robyn you win the award for the most amazing faces pulled this year!
