Sophie and Victoria are a very dedicated couple – very much in love – so was thrilled to be their official wedding photographer at Hollin Country House Hotel in Cheshire. Snow was a bit of a problem for some guests getting there, but with a bright sunny day for the wedding itself, everyone was in a great mood. I was still taking photos at midnight! the venue is wonderful for photos too, with its grand staircase and antique carved bannisters.

Julie covered Caroline and Sarah’s Civil Partnership wedding at Barden Tower near Skipton with their wedding reception at the Priestshouse Restaurant on Saturday 17 July. We’d have loved to have stayed all day, as we usually do but in this case only had a couple of hours to capture the essence of their special day.
Sun a showers more typical of an April wedding day blessed this couple.
They look so happy together – all smiles!
Everyone was told to come in black. The bride wore a full-length jewel-encrusted black laced gown and her civil partner a decorative black suit and cravat. The setting? – the Woodlands Hotel in Leeds.
A year or so ago I had wandered into the drop-in centre at Dewsbury Hospital with my granddaughter I think, and got talking to a lovely lady called Anne. I gave her a business card and she passed it on to her sister, Dawn. So that’s how I ended up being booked to cover this unusual event.

After this photo was taken, Dawn accidentally knocked the taps on and jumped screaming – with laughter – from the bath!
