Wakefield wedding photographer shoots York wedding: Gaynor & Bryan
Although I’m predominantly a Wakefield wedding photographer covering weddings in West Yorkshire, I do get to travel around quite a bit and today I was with Gaynor and Bryan as their York wedding photographer. Gaynor is a Wakefield girl but Bryan is York born and bred and York is a favourite haunt of both of them so, what better place to get married than York registry office, followed by a wedding breakfast at Ask Italian and finally, rounding off the day’s celebration with a river cruise along the Ouse?
We began with the bridal preps at the York Novotel with the rain lashing down and sweeping across the patio outside the window but the forecast said it would clear by noon so we crossed our fingers and carried on with the detail shots. By the time we came to do the bridal portraits, it had eased off enough for us to get outside for a few quick shots before heading off to meet up with Bryan and the boys at the registry office. By this time the rain had stopped and we were able to work outside in the street to get some fine images of the suited chaps before Gaynor arrived with her dad in a friend’s fabulous Rolls Royce. The rain stayed away throughout the ceremony and all the time we walked down through York to get to the reception – we even had sunshine breaking through and yet, within 5 minutes of them going into the restaurant, the heavens opened with torrential rain driving tourists from the streets!
By early evening the rain had cleared and the low sunshine had broken through as we hit the museum gardens for another photo session prior to boarding the cruise boat. Black thunder skies and mellow sunshine gave us some amazing light to play with and we soon had another great set in the bag. Eventually we boarded the boat for a river cruise along the Ouse with a barbecue and band to entertain us until first dance just after sunset at around 8.30pm after which is was party time until 11:00pm and the end of a great day. These photos only represent a few of the many we got :¬)
