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…


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…
