So it was time to head up North for the stunning wedding of two good friends, Ryan & Sam. I first met Ryan when I worked in America on a summer camp as their official photographer and we have been great friends ever since. One year he met the girl of his dreams and fast forward a few years and its now time for the happiest day of their lives.
They had planned to have their preparation at the Mercure Bankfield Hotel in Bingley and then for the main event of the ceremony and wedding reception to be held at East Riddleston Hall which is a stunning venue set in the grounds and home of a 17th century cloth maker. They had chosen to hold their wedding in the barn on the grounds and trust me when I say, it was absolutely breath taking.
I started the day with Sam and her team of bridesmaids at the hotel which included her sister Sarah, Ryan’s sister Sophie and two of Sam’s her best friends Amy & Zowie. But also let’s not forget little Molly who was absolutely obsessed with the camera and such a great little character. Sam was having her hair done by Hannah from Enchanted Hair and then onto her make up by Charlotte from Beauty in Bloom & Jessica Bass Make Up. Below are some images we created of Sam and her preparation to become the new Mrs McGee…
It was only a short journey through the hotel to meet up with Ryan, who by this point in the day was starting his preparation and getting into his suit. We had a great little catch up and it was great to see some familiar faces from over sea’s in his friend Harry who had travelled over from the US. His main job was to help Ryan and to calm the nerves. Here are some images I capture of Ryan as he became the handsome groom you see before you…
Staright back to the lovely ladies in room 102. Whom by this point had the dress in their sights and it was nearly time for Sam to take her final steps as a fiancé, to become the new Mrs McGee. As you can see, Sam went for something that she knew would take Ryan’s breath away in the form of her colourful beautiful dress and boy did it look amazing. Here are some images I captured before we all headed off to East Riddleston Hall…
I would just like to say a huge thank you to the new Mr & Mrs McGee for letting me be such a big part of their day and entrusting me with documenting all the wonders you had installed for your guests. It truly was a stunning day! Here’s to many years of happiness together and to all the many adventures you have lined up in the years to come.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to all of their friends and family for making my day such fun and so easy to capture. I really did have a great time and you guys sure no how to party! If any of you are currently planning your special day, please give me a shout if you like what you see. No where is to far for me to travel and it would be a absolute honour to be a part of your day too.

Lots of love
