Hannah and Richard were married in a beautiful church in the picturesque village of Newton under Roseberry, North Yorkshire, followed by a reception at the family farm in Skelton. The wedding had a real nod to Richard’s farming background, from arriving at the church in a tractor to photos on top of hay bales! They even put me in a cherry picker to capture an aerial shot of all the guests!
Hannah and Richard were such a fun couple to photograph. Their laid back nature was really reflected in the wedding. They did most of the planning themselves including designing and making a lot of the props for inside the marquee. They created signs from places that are special to them as table names and made all the settings and table cloths themselves. It had a real Yorkshire feel while encompassing things that are special to the couple at the same time.
In the run up to the wedding there was quite a lot of rain, but on the day we couldn’t have asked for better weather. The day started off mild and in the late afternoon the clouds parted to make way for some brilliant sunshine. After the ceremony we decided to capture some portraits in front of Roseberry Topping, an iconic hill within view of the church. Hannah donned her wedding wellies and we chose a vivid yellow oil seed rape field to shoot the photos in. We also had the opportunity to shoot some portraits later on in the day on a hay bale at the farm. Hannah did an incredible job of balancing on the round bale in her wedding shoes!
