 From the picturesque church to the stunning meadow reception

Mr and Mrs Watson’s international Yorkshire countryside wedding was a truly unforgettable event. With guests travelling from all over the world, including the USA and Australia, this beautiful wedding in Tadcaster was a celebration of love and diversity. From the rustic charm of St Andrew Church to the stunning farm meadow reception, every detail was carefully crafted to make this special day one to remember

Old Friends

As a Yorkshire wedding photographer, I have the privilege of capturing the unique beauty of each couple’s special day. Mr and Mrs Watson’s wedding was no exception. Having previously photographed Mr Watson as the best man at Mr and Mrs Casson’s beautiful wedding, it felt like I was spending the day with old friends.

The setting for Mr and Mrs Watson’s wedding was the picturesque countryside around Tadcaster, with the ceremony held at the stunning St Andrew Church in Newton Kyme and the reception at a marquee in a meadow on the Watson’s family farm. The diversity of venues and weddings that I get to photograph never ceases to amaze and inspire me.

Lost wedding rings at the church service and a very special ring bearer.

As a wedding photographer, I have heard many stories about forgotten wedding rings and other mishaps on the big day. However, I never expected to experience it myself until Mr and Mrs Watson’s wedding. During the ring exchange, it was discovered that one of the groomsmen had left the rings in the car.

The church fell silent for a moment before bursting into laughter as one of the best men ran to fetch the rings. But just when we thought the crisis was averted, a very special ring bearer arrived with the rings safely around his collar – it was Hector, Mr and Mrs Watson’s beloved dog!

I was not expecting Hector to make an appearance and it was such a fun and memorable moment. It just goes to show that even the most minor hiccups can make a wedding day even more special and unique.

Singing waitresses and an epic sunset photoshoot

At Mr and Mrs Watson’s wedding, the signing waiters were a highlight of the reception. They kept the energy high and the guests entertained with their surprise performance. I have always been a fan of singing waiters and their ability to keep the tempo of the wedding going and provide a unique and memorable experience for the couple and their guests.

The signing waiters at Mr and Mrs Watson’s wedding were no exception, and their rendition of Sweet Caroline was particularly memorable. I never tire of hearing guests singing along and having a great time at weddings. The signing waiters truly made Mr and Mrs Watson’s reception one to remember.

Golden hour is best for portraits!

One of the most common questions I get asked as a wedding photographer is when the best time is for the bride and groom photoshoot. In my experience, the golden hour – typically one hour before sunset – is the ideal time for a couple’s photo shoot at a summer wedding. The warm, golden light during this time of day is just perfect for creating beautiful, timeless images.

At Mr and Mrs Watson’s wedding, we took advantage of the golden hour light and captured some stunning photos. The warm, golden tones added a touch of magic to the couple’s photos and created memories that will last a lifetime.

Ended the night with a  signature hero shot

As a wedding photographer, I always try to end my coverage with a hero shot of the bride and groom to capture their joy and excitement as newlyweds. This wedding season, I have been incorporating champagne into the hero shot whenever possible, and at Mr and Mrs Watson’s wedding, it was no different. I loved Mrs Watson’s reaction to the champagne and it made for a truly special moment.

I would like to thank Mr and Mrs Watson for allowing me to capture their beautiful wedding in the North Yorkshire countryside. It was a pleasure to see many familiar faces and to be surrounded by the stunning scenery of Tadcaster. I will miss this wonderful couple and their lovely wedding greatly.
