Jean and Neil’s Renewal of Wedding Vows

Hull & Yorkshire Photographer Posted on Mon, July 07, 2014 05:23PM

After being married forty years ago, Jean and Neil decided to renew their vows in a small ceremony at St James’ Church in Sutton-Upon-Hull, and called on me to be their photographer for the day.

They had their family and friends there of course, with their sons taking part, leading Jean down the aisle or doing readings.
Here are some more photos. The rest are at in the gallery at

Pre-wedding photoshoot with Stephanie and Andy

Hull & Yorkshire Photographer Posted on Mon, July 07, 2014 10:28AM

Part of being someone’s wedding photographer is building a relationship with the couple: after all, on their wedding day I could be the person the see the most of, so they have to like me at least a bit!

To help with this, for all my regular packages I include a pre-wedding photoshoot – not a huge all day shoot, but half an hour or so, walking around the venue or a favourite place, to get the couple used to me pointing a camera at them, all the time discussing what they want from their big day, and hopefully have them a little more relaxed on the wedding day.
Here’s a lovely couple who were married at Rudstone Walk, South Cave, East Yorkshire, a few weeks ago. We met up only a few weeks prior to that (they were so busy in their preparations and stag/hen weekends – that’s the earliest they could do!) and walked around the grounds, talking about ideas and finding good places to shoot. Here are some of the photos.
