Magical

Even though it’s been over a year since this magical day, it remains as one of my favourite weddings ever! I had never been to Applewood Weddings before, and when I first saw the venue I was absolutely gobsmacked! It really was the most beautiful woodland setting, with fairy lights everywhere you looked. Not only was the venue just so beautiful, but it has to be said that Kate looked absolutely…


Fun at the fair

It’s ‘fair’ to say that these two are just an absolute dream to photograph. After our shoot last year in the autumn leaves, it seems to be that our shoots are becoming an annual thing. And I’m totally cool with that. We decided that for something a little bit different, we wanted to do a shoot at a fair ground. Fern & Ell made the trip over to Harrogate, and we had a lovely evening as the sun…


Homemade and oh so lovely

Charlotte & George’s homemade wedding was just so gorgeous right down to the finest detail. And detail really was the word of the day! From home grown succulents to give out as wedding favours, to little bags of sweets for the bus journey to the wedding reception – these guys had thought of everything and it was so special. Bridal prep was a lot of fun, and the colour-coordinated dressing…


Down by the river

These two crazy kids just make me smile so much! I knew as soon as I met these two that they’d be so much fun to photograph. Rebecca & Kyle are so unconventional, and just aren’t afraid to get their hands mucky! I met these two at Studley Royal near Harrogate, and I swear they had me laughing the whole time we were there. We took a wander down to the seven bridges, and after all the dry…


Inappropriate comments, dogs and cognac

I met these guys at their house ahead of the big wedding this weekend for some photos in the garden, some cognac and some fun with the dogs! I was met at the door with the biggest hugs, and also got to meet the family for the first time! It’s safe to say that Harry was… ahem… a little apprehensive about having his photos taken? Nancy informed me that she’d spent the…


The best ever!

When I first started out as a wedding photographer, it genuinely worried me that switching my all time favourite hobby into my job would make me become sick of it. Well, it’s weddings like this that remind me how much I love what I do! Kirsty & Dom’s wedding was quite possibly the best ever. In case you haven’t heard, I absolutely love these two. Meeting them for the first time was absolutely…


If you go down to the woods today..

For Charlotte & George’s engagement shoot, we headed up to the Pine Woods in Harrogate. We were so lucky with the weather (although we have been every day recently!). It was such a lovely morning. I met these guys in Betty’s, and we started the day right with some rather lovely raspberry lemonade. Very civilised! We chatted for ages about everything from wedding plans to old cars! After we’d…


At home with the family

I LOVE home sessions so much. And when the little ones are this adorable, it’s just a total dream! I met these guys at their house in Harrogate and we had the loveliest time. A lot of the time I photograph family shoots out and about in the countryside, but there’s just something about home sessions that are just so special. I think the fact that everyone feels comfortable at home is a big…


Pure happiness

Pure happiness. That’s the only way I can describe this wedding. It was clear from the start that this wedding was going to be fun. In all honesty, I probably have never laughed so much at a wedding! Kris & Deb’s wedding was also my first time shooting a wedding with my awesome gal pal Amy. Amy and I took it in turns to photograph both Kris and Deb getting ready. This was SO lovely because as…


An unlikely meeting

When I came round to meeting Kirsty and Dom, it was one of those moments when you look back at yourself and just think ‘I love my job’. Kirsty and Dom first came to my attention in the most unlikely of scenarios. One day in April, I was having a meeting with another client near Harrogate. When I got home, I was met with the loveliest of emails… “Hi Lily. We were sitting next to you in the cafe…
