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…


Snow way!

After waking up to heavy snow across the UK, luckily all the guests made it safely to the wedding! Chris and Catherine got married in a beautiful little church at the top of a very steep… slippy… snowy hill. I must admit it was rather entertaining to watch 70 guests attempt to climb up to the top in time for the wedding ceremony. It was entertaining until I almost fell over myself which was not…


It's hard to beat a Christmas wedding

After their engagement shoot before Christmas, I was so excited to photograph Emma & Allan’s wedding in Durham! Once I arrived at Seaham Hall, Emma was still finishing off her wedding playlist! We all spent most of the morning suggesting some top tunes for the night ahead. This kept us all entertained, and also kept the nerves at bay! Emma really was the most stunning bride and was an…

Winter walks

Whenever I see a new message from Carrie or Amanda, I light up. I absolutely love these two to bits! This winter, Amanda contacted me on Facebook asking if I would consider coming up from Harrogate to do a family shoot. At first I was a little confused as to who she meant by ‘family’. When she informed me that it would her, Carrie and Tilly… the dog… I was both amused and excited. Since…
