[Wedding] A love that reaches around the world, Charlotte & Damian, Old Swan Harrogate

Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of photographing my 185th Wedding in the form of Charlotte & Damian at Old Swan, Harrogate, a brand new venue for me!

With potential bad weather forecasted (that didn't appear), I stayed the night before at the hotel so I could have a good look round and be there just in case.

I started with Charlotte, her bridesmaids, mum and step mum, where a hive of hair and make-up was taking place, all very calmly! Damian's mum joined us after a little while too. Lots of laughter and stories ensured!

When Damian arrived at the hotel I popped downstairs to photograph him and his son Ben, before heading back upstairs to photograph Charlotte getting into her dress.

Charlotte was given away by her Dad and Step-Dad who both were there to see how beautiful she looked all dressed up and both walked her down the aisle to meet her groom.

The ceremony was full of beautiful words including a poem from the Brides Mum, tears and laughter were had too. Exactly what a ceremony should include!

We headed outside for a confetti photograph despite a tiny bit of rain trying to spoil it for us but it soon blew over.

Family photographs then ensured before I was able to photograph the new Mr & Mrs on their own before they went to mingle with their guests before the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches!

After Speeches, they even had a Pub Quiz whilst raising money for Martin House Hospice! Never seen a pub quiz at a Wedding before! :D

Lots of laughter and dancing continued into the night and I snook the happy couple outside for a couple more after dark photographs before heading home.

Thank you so much for allowing me to share your special day with you!

[BLP] What is a Sitter Session?

You may hear some people talking about “Sitter Sessions” but do you really know what they are? Is the term of “Sitter Sessions” just professional photography jargon?

So what is a “Sitter Session”

Basically, a sitter session is a photography session for when the baby is approximately aged 6-8 months old, they must be sitting securely on their own and its before they are walking.

Sitter sessions are great because it is another milestone that your little one has achieved! 

It also means that we have a variety of what they can wear and the poses and sometimes props we can place them in.

Sitter Sessions are scheduled for 1-Hour in the studio, however, most of them are done within 30-45 minutes and you’ll still have a variety of poses! 

I love this age! They’re so cute and their little personalities are shining through! With little chubby arms and legs, how could you not wish to capture it forever?

If you are interested in booking a sitter session then please drop us an email! :)
