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 personal touch. Fran’s sister did her make up, her mother had made her wedding bouquet, whilst her Dad… poured everyone some Prosecco!

We had a bit of time to spare before heading off to Harrogate. This was the perfect opportunity to get some portraits of the beautiful bride. Fran had been so nervous about having her photograph taken before her engagement shoot, but on her wedding day she was like a different person! She absolutely rocked her portraits. This, ladies and gents, is why engagement shoots are an absolute MUST!

Once the carriages had arrived, it was off to Harrogate we went. Lewis and all the guests were waiting patiently, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the building when Fran walked down the aisle.

Once everyone had congratulated the happy couple, we headed across The Stray for some portraits. The wedding reception was in Scotton, so we set off from Harrogate to meet the rest of the wedding party. Despite only having 20 guests, everybody was in such high spirits. The atmosphere was buzzing from start to finish!

What a lovely wedding to start off the season.
