HEY THERE | welcome

Hope you like what you see so far, in the gallery to my right you will see some of my work, highlights from some of the amazing days I have had the priviledge of collaborationg on. Please click on my BLOG to lots more images from my recent weddings. I only shoot 6 weddings a year to ensure that the creativity and quality is always there. If you would like to chat over any aspect of your day please get in touch HERE. I have shot well over 200 weddings and won many top awards. Basically if you would like your day covered in an artistic way but with minimum impact to the natural flow of the wedding we may be able to work together.

Carly and Paul’s Wedding in Ripponden and at East Riddlesden Hall.

This was our first visit providing Wedding photography at East Riddlesden Hall for Carly and Paul. Carly has an infectious personality,  She’s  loads of fun and a meticulous planner and this added up to a fantastic wedding. Carly had planned a Narnia wedding. We had met her before as she was the fourth wedding we had photographed from a great group of friends. It was lovely to see them all together again.

Carly and Pauls wedding was at St. Bartholomew’s Church in Ripponden. It’s in a lovely picturesque area and happens to benefit from being right next to the Bridge Inn. The Bridge Inn is one those great old country pubs with an open fire and a warm welcome. Carly’s parents own it, so it was certainly put to good use with mulled wine  and tasty hors d’oeuvres for all the guests.

We met Carly and all the bridesmaids getting ready and having a ball at Carly’s grandparents gorgeous old house, only a few miles from the church. Having got all the getting ready photographs,  we headed off to The Old Bridge Inn to meet up with the lucky groom Paul. Paul was right in the middle of a big scrum of wedding guests in the pub, the atmosphere was great with everyone enjoying some great beers and hospitality. Carly had even brewed her own wedding beer for the day (she really is that amazing!).

During the lovely ceremony  one of the highlights was Carly’s old opera singing tutor singing Ave Maria during the register signing.

It was then back to the old Bridge for some more socialising whilst we grabbed half and hour with Paul and Carly for some shots nearby. A perfect wedding would not be complete without a vintage bus which really looked the part parked outside the church.

The bus took the guests off to East Riddleston Hall for the Nania inspired reception. We had never shot a wedding at East Riddleston Hall before, but we had visited for a look round so we knew it was going to be special. Everyone  at East Riddlesden Hall and others had done a great job of constructing a huge pair of wardrobe doors to enter the venue . You then went through some fur coats into a winter wonderland!  It was really unique and spectacular.

We left at around 10pm, after some light painting shots in the grounds.

    Tim and Amanda are the most amazing photographers. They made us feel completely at ease and spent every moment looking for the perfect shot. We met up with them before the wedding and they made the whole experience a pleasure from start to finish. Their new studio is gorgeous, you must go and see it and say hello to them. We have spent the past 48hours thinking of the next event we could hold just simply to have them again!
    We can’t thank you enough and we’re so happy we’ve made such lovely friends as Tim and Amanda.
    Can’t wait to see you soon

    Oh my stars!!!! These photos are just incredible!!! I love every one and cannot wait to see more! How you have managed to capture such great photos and work your magic so smoothly and with great discretion in such a professional manor is a great credit to you both. Think it’s time to book a shoot at Tim Simpson photography!!!
