Priory Cottages near Wetherby is one of my favourite wedding venues to photograph. It has beautiful grounds and a whole host backgrounds to create unique, creative wedding photographs
A superb wedding venue ideally located close to the M1 near Wetherby
The venue itself is made up of The Barn, The Marquee and 7 beautifully decorated cottages all centered around our private tranquil courtyard.
The cottages are available all year round for individual cottage stays or to hire exclusively with the barn for your wedding. The cottages are made up of a mixture of 3,2 and 1 bedrooms which surround the tranquil courtyard. The stylish and spacious accommodation at Priory Cottages in North Yorkshire have been individually designed and decorated with a different eclectic theme to each stunning cottage, ensuring no stay is the same. Whether its business or pleasure, Priory Cottages can cater for every need you and your party have.
Arriving 2 hours before the ceremony, everyone is about ready to start being photographed. Due to the layout of the wedding venue Priory Cottages, it is so easy for me to capture both Bridal preparations and also Groom preparations.
I of course shoot through the ceremony, capturing not only the emotion of the Bride and Groom but also of as many guests as I possibly can. After the first kiss and the signing of the register were outside for drinks and photos. As everything is relatively close, photographs dont take brides and grooms to far away from the action. I will also take a photograph of the whole wedding party using one of the top windows in the cottages. Due to the speed I work at, I always strive to get individual portraits of as many people as I can. As well as of course couple and family portraits of all your guests
Bride and Groom photographs get really good variety at Priory Cottages. Walls with texture, open fields and even roller shutter doors make great images
Then its time for the speeches in the marquee. I am always well placed for the reactions. At this point, everyone knows what sort of a wedding photographer I am and have no issues getting up close for those reactions which make amazing wedding photographs to really add into the story of your wedding day at Priory Cottages
After the wedding breakfast and speeches, I always remain available. Usually most will relax and drink, however so do want more photographs. I usually use this time to fill any blanks I feel I have.
All that is left then to complete your magical Priory Cottage wedding photographs is Sunset, First Dance and after dark wedding images. Then having said goodbye to you and your guests ( and no doubt a load of banter by now) I will be on my way home

A second photographer is available on request to increase your image count and get lots of different angles of your big day.
A second professional photographer is something I would highly recommend every couple add to their day. As well as more images, the coverage will be far greater as I can only be in one place at once. And also, the more photos the better right?

Wedding Photography FAQs
I solely focus on wedding photography. The reason for this is because I want to have all the answers for when things dont go right, and also that each and every thought I have when I hold my camera is wedding specific.
90% of my wedding photographs are natural, the rest are formal group photos as well as bride and groom photography. I focus on capturing the natural and beautiful reactions that happen throughout the wedding day.
Bride and grooms tend to hate posing for the camera – however, my bride and groom photos ensure that posing is very, very simple and easy. Check out my wedding portfolio for examples!
I think the way I interact with people and that I dont go heavy on posing are the reasons why I fill my diary two years in advance for weddings
All your wedding photography will be made available to download through a password-protected link for you to view and download as often as you wish.
The gallery has the ability to professionally print your photos, at extra cost.
I arrive 90minutes before the ceremony to begin capturing the bride getting ready, or groom if preferred.
I capture the whole day as it unfolds and finish just after the first dance.
My job, without a doubt, is to capture your wedding day in stunning photographs. I shoot in a unique, fun, and approachable way. Bride and Groom photos take around 20 minutes. I am a big believer in getting around 10 amazing photographs of you and then letting you get back to enjoy your wedding party. I will not take you away for longer than needed. The posing will be very light and easy. The last thing I want is for couples to feel awkward
Shooting from a distance when needed, but also getting into the mix of things where appropriate. It is this approach that has made me not only award-winning but highly sought after. Shooting 50+ weddings a year.
On occasion, brides will fly me to their weddings overseas!
I am pleased to be able to offer a lighter more budget friendly highlights video. We use all the latest and discreet technology, mixed in with my experience to capture a fly on the wall highlights video. I don’t shoot the video, it is done by a member of my staff who has worked with me for 2 years now. Don’t worry, its not cringey, its all shot at the same time as me meaning it has zero impact on the timings of the day.
I only require a £200 booking fee and the full balance 2 calendar months before the big day. The booking fee covers set up costs and is non-refundable
I would travel anywhere – From Cornwall and North Wales to Northumberland and the Lake District – no where is too far! I also travel across Europe for weddings
Extra charges may apply.
I am fully insured – in fact most venues ask for proof of insurance before allowing me to step in the building!
