The Tower House Hotel is a wedding venue in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
It’s in a great location, sitting in view of the Wainhouse Tower.
The ceremony room is a cute space for tying the knot.
There’s a little bench for photos with the bride and groom (or groom and best man!)
And a little garden area for more pictures.
That’s also a good backdrop for night photos.
I love the natural smiles in this picture.
This was taken in the ceremony room at Hazlewood Castle.
The window off to the right was providing plenty of light, so it was a dream location to shoot.
Christina was tucked away in the other corner of the room, so was able to get some great shots of the groom from another angle.

Behind Lancaster Registry Office is this beautiful spot.
It’s a perfect location to grab some photos immediately after the ceremony.
These weren’t arranged beforehand but I’d spotted this place when I was scouting the location the morning of the wedding.
In the weeks before I’d been looking for scenic locations on Google Maps that we could visit without having to drive.
(The reception was in another location so we only had a bit of time here immediately after the ceremony.)
So I was really pleased that this was just behind the registry office.
It had been raining heavily all morning. There was still a bit of rain by this point but the bridal party had a few solutions:
This was a beautiful wedding. The ceremony room here was full of natural light and amazing features, making our job a lot easier!
The bride and groom were smiling and giggling throughout (again, making our job easier!)
There was a lot of emotion in the room. I was on the other side, trying to capture some of the reactions of the guests while also keeping the bride and groom in the shot.
After signing the register, we tried a couple of quick shots from the back of the room, to capture some of the awesome details, like the fans and beams above:
There were so many pictures of their smiles:
Plus kids messing about with the flowers:
The room was decorated beautifully:
And there was dancing out of the room!
(There’ll be a proper post about this wedding, later this year.) x

This image was taken just as the bridesmaids were about to leave for the wedding.
The doorway seemed like a natural frame, especially for a shot in portrait orientation.
I really liked how the red from the car contrasted the yellow dresses and the yellow flowers.
I’ll be posting more from this wedding soon. I’m planning to blog all the 2019 weddings just as soon as I’ve finished shooting them!
In the meantime, you can see more weddings at the wedding photo gallery.
The image was taken during a wedding at The Beaches Hotel, Prestatyn.
It was a beautiful ceremony in a small village and then the reception was on the beach front.
This was a quiet moment before the evening partying began!
This image was taken right at the end of the photoshoot, before we all headed home.
The sun was getting low in the sky and I was hoping to catch it coming through the upright trees behind.
There were loads of people around that evening- playing football, waking their dogs etc. (The location was Middleton Park in Leeds.)
We spent a bit of time walking round and chatting while we found a quiet spot to take some pictures.
The bright sun meant that we had to find some spots that were a good mix of shade with a bit of sunlight thrown in.
I really like how relaxed these guys were towards the end of the shoot.
An engagement shoot normally takes about an hour. The first twenty minutes are normally just when we are feeling a bit awkward and just relaxing into each others’ company.
Then we start to settle into it and, combined with looking at the pictures on the back of the camera, we get confident that we’re all happy with the pictures we’re creating.
If you would like to arrange a couples shoot just get in touch x
This wedding at The Huntsman, Holmfirth was a great day.
Here we can see the groom and the love of his life. 🙂
