As we gear up for the start of the wedding season, I have been busy meeting up with all the lovely couples who are getting married this year, starting with the very awesome Katie & Ollie.

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!

It was great meeting up with Steph and Andy for their pre-wedding shoot. The couple live in Woodthorpe, just outside York and suggested that we go to their local nature reserve, Acomb Wood, for the shoot. I always let couples choose the location of their pre-wedding shoot so that it is somewhere special to them, and Acomb Woods is a place that Steph and Andy spend a lot of time together walking their dog, Paddy - A special mention should go to Paddy who was such a star, until that is when he took the opportunity whilst I was lying down to get a shot to kick dirt up into my face! It was very funny and did provide some great shots of Steph and Andy laughing.

When the alarm clock went off at 6am, I was cursing myself for having suggested another dawn shoot on a Sunday! However, it was totally worth the early start to meet up with Kim and Adam for their pre-wedding shoot around the streets of York. After all, there aren’t many times when you get The Shambles to yourself.
