Wedding Photographers Near Me Leeds Harrogate York

When choosing a wedding photographer for your wedding, one of the most popular search terms is ‘photographers near me’ as couples feel more comfortable in using a local photographer.  Picking a wedding photographer can be a bit of a minefield as the industry is unregulated.  There are institutions, associations and societies which a photographer has to reach a certain standard to become a member so it is always worthwhile asking if the photographer is a qualified member of one of these organisations.

I am a BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photographers) qualified wedding photographer and had to present my work to a board before gaining my qualification.  Another question worth asking, is whether the photographer is recommended by any wedding venues as an hotel would not recommend a photographer that they would not be happy with.  I am recommended by many venues including The Old Swan, Harrogate, The Crown Hotel, Harrogate, The Cedar Court, Harrogate, Weetwood Hall Hotel in Leeds plus many others.

Not only is it important to see the photographer’s work (making sure it is his work), but it is worthwhile speaking to the photographer on the phone and meeting up with him to make sure that you get along as the photographer’s personality and his people skills are very important.  Above all, remember that it’s a wedding day and not a photo shoot, that way, you will enjoy the wedding and be more relaxed.

If you have any questions about wedding photography or would like any advice, please feel free to email me ([email protected]) or you can phone me on my mobile (07812390568) or phone me at my home studio (01132663600).

Winter Wonderland Wedding in Harrogate

Winter Wonderland Wedding in Harrogate North Yorkshire

Winter Wonderland Wedding in Harrogate North Yorkshire

Alison and Gary’s wish came true today, a Winter Wonderland Wedding.

When I woke up this morning it was zero degrees but as the day progressed, the temperature increased to 2 degrees.  When I arrived at Bilton House, Harrogate, the ground had a dusting of snow.  On the bride’s arrival at the Registry Office, the snow started to come down quite heavily.

After the wedding ceremony, I took this wonderful photograph of the ‘newly weds’ in the grounds of Bilton House, which captured the day perfectly.

Over the many years I have been a wedding photographer, I have taken a great many wedding photographs at Harrogate Registry Office – Bilton House but this is a first for me, a winter wonderland wedding photograph.

Wedding Photography Weddings at The Queens Hotel Leeds

Photographing weddings at The Queens Hotel, Leeds is always a pleasure and a delight whether it be in the fantastic ballroom or the art deco Palm Court Room.  The Queens Hotel, Leeds has to be one of the best wedding venues in Leeds for your special day.  For those romantic photographs of the bride and groom, I love to use City Square which is a great backdrop for the bride and groom wedding photographs.

If you are intending to have a religious wedding ceremony, then within easy reach of the hotel are numerous different denominational places of worship.  An added bonus is that if you have guests coming from out of town, the hotel is adjacent to Leeds City Train station — it couldn’t be easier.

As I am located in North Leeds, I am only a few miles away so rest assured that I will have no difficulty in arriving at the venue.  Over my 12 years as a Yorkshire wedding photographer, I have had the pleasure of taking many stunning wedding photographs at The Queens Hotel, Leeds.

I have photographed small intimate weddings in the Library at Rudding Park, Harrogate and also much larger weddings including Jewish ones with over 200 people in The Radcliffe Room.

The staff are a credit to Rudding Park, Harrogate.  They are very attentive to your every need.  The grounds are immaculately pruned.

Rudding Park, Harrogate is only 15 minutes from where I live in North Leeds so there’s no worry about whether your photographer will get stuck in traffic or will turn up on the day.  Having photographed many weddings at Rudding Park, Harrogate, I am a familiar face to the staff and the clergy should you have a blessing in the 19th century chapel.
