Start of the wedding season

The wedding season got off to the loveliest start when I was lucky enough to photograph Fran & Lewis’ big day. Bridal prep was one of the most chilled out wedding mornings I have had the pleasure of photographing! Everyone was so relaxed, and it was lovely to be able to capture such a happy lead up to the wedding. Fran got ready at her parents’ house in Ilkley, and everything had a very…


A first class wedding

Lou and Sam got married in the university where they first met! Their wedding was one of those days that made me so happy to be a photographer. Bridal prep was a whole lot of fun. 6 girls and a whole load of Prosecco. You can imagine it was a rather eventful morning! It was clear from the start that it was going to be an emotional one. Lou walked down the aisle with Tom, her son, by her side.…


A day out at Harewood House

Harewood House certainly was the perfect backdrop for this lovely family shoot! When a fellow photographer asks you to do a family photo shoot, it’s a lovely feeling indeed! We met near Harrogate early in the morning before it got too busy. This meant we pretty much had Harewood House to ourselves! It was the first time I had met gorgeous little Noah. I think the pictures speak for themselves for…


A morning with the lovely Sian

I have actually known Sian since I was about 8 years old, since being at primary school with her sister. Almost 15 years later, I didn’t expect us both to be working together in the wedding industry! Sian has been running her wedding planning business for just over a year, and I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone. She really is one of the loveliest AND most organised people I’ve…


My kind of wedding

Working with the enigma that is Jamie Sia Photography is always a total pleasure. Mike & Lindsey’s wedding was no exception. Every wedding I photograph is so different from the last, and it’s a wonderful feeling that couples still amaze me with their ideas and styling for the day. Lindsey had done the most incredible job of organising the whole wedding. I don’t say this often, but I think if…


Barn on the farm

What a day this was – a beautiful farm located just outside of Thirsk, right in the heart of the countryside. Oh, and it’s a cheese farm. Yes please!   The ‘Barn on the Farm’ styled shoot was organised by the incredibly talented wonder that is Nicola Dixon – also a fellow Harrogate lass! Claire and Antony did an amazing job being our models for the afternoon. They had never done any…


A morning in the sunshine

My first family shoot of the year and the sunshine very kindly came to keep us company! It hasn’t been very often that we’ve seen the sun in 2018. Our shoot with the Young family in Harrogate was a really colourful one. Baby Rowan’s rainbow coloured shirt certainly brightened up the photographs! The flowers in the gardens along with the different coloured walls we found made this shoot one…


Let's start a love train

“Hi Lily, we’re getting married this summer on a train and we were wondering if y….”   Yes. I’ll be there.   How often do you get the chance to photograph a wedding on a train?! That’s just incredible! Martin & Amy’s wedding took place at the East Lancashire Railway, which was not only the most amazing location, but also the most beautiful drive from Harrogate!   Martin…


The night time engagement shoot

Fran & Lewis’ engagement shoot was a very last minute booking, but I’m so pleased we could all squeeze in the time to do it! These guys were hard as nails to brave the weather on such a freezing cold evening. The snow and rain was no match for us! I tend to do most of my engagement shoots in the countryside in the morning light. To do a shoot in town AND at night time was certainly a little…


Happy anniversary Kelly & Matt!

I can’t believe it’s the anniversary of this beautiful day! Today’s also one year since I first worked with the dream that is Charlotte White Weddings. Second shooting for Charlotte has been an absolute pleasure and she has taught me so many amazing things over the past 12 months!   From start to finish, Kelly and Matt’s wedding in Harrogate was beautiful. It was one of those days where…
