Sue and Gavin's Beautiful Harrogate Wedding


On the 27th April 2013, I had the great pleasure of photographing Sue and Gavin's Wedding in Harrogate.  After meeting with the bride and groom twice before the day itself, I really felt like part of the family.  Sitting in Sue's house watching the girls get ready and having their "Subways" before the main event was great fun and I always feel like I am in such a privileged position to witness all the emotions behind the scenes! At one point Sue and I had a quick chat, which went something like this,


Me "So, Sue how long have we known each other now"?

Sue "I can't remember, it feels like we go back ages"

Me "I know it must be nearly, 2 or even 3 WEEKS, ha ha"


This is the reason that I love to get to know the couple first, so we can all relax, have fun and enjoy the day. 


After their 'Subs' it was time to get ready.


Sue's full length gown, complimented her figure beautifully and the purple bridesmaids dresses were simple yet stunning!

At the church the boys were ready and looking very dapper. Gavin had his brother Steven as his bestman and I have to say he did a terrific job! He was such a star at the Hotel and if he ever wants a job, he should give me a shout, lol. Thanks Steven for your help on the day!

Then it was onto the Cedar Court Hotel for the Wedding Breakfast. The room was nothing short of spectacular. An amazing layout complimented by beautiful architecture.

After their meal, I managed to steal the newly weds away for a few portraits just for them. The weather had stayed dry and the sun was low in the sky meaning the images have a lovely warmth to them, just like the couple themselves. 

And then it was time to PARTY!


So, a great day was had by all!

Thank you again Sue and Gavin for letting me share x
