Loving couple...

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. More pics from their wedding here :  More about Civil Partnerships here too:

Civil Partnership with two brides kissing

Two brides show their love after Civil Partnership wedding

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.

Gothic Gay wedding in Leeds at the Woodlands.

Gay wedding in Leeds at the Woodlands

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.
