I have really loved getting to know Becky and Darcy and it was such a pleasure to be able share with them their special day at the fabulous Conistone hotel, located between Skipton and Settle and set against the beautiful backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales (those views from the hotel terrace are something else!).

I'm not likely to forget Claire and Andrew's wedding any time soon...Not only was it a gorgeous wedding with a fab couple and stunning venue, it was also the day that my wife went into labour with our first child!

On the hottest weekend of the year so far, Liz & Dave chose to get married at one of the best outdoor venues (in my opinion!) in Yorkshire, Skipbridge Country Weddings, and what a day it was!

I always seem to get lucky with the weather when it comes to my early pre-wedding dawn shoots in York. This is my fourth shoot with a couple around the historic streets of York at ridiculous o'clock and every time I have been blessed with the perfect weather conditions, making the early starts seem worth it!
