Rise Hall Wedding Photography- Natalie and James May 2017


Many Congratulations to Natalie and James who held their reception at Rise Hall  near Hull a couple of Saturdays ago (having watched Sarah Beeney’s show featuring the renovation of the Hall I had been looking forward to this wedding for a while)…… from first meeting to their wedding day I knew this wedding was going to be a belter; Natalie is organised, she was adept at letting me know what she had in her mind in terms of photographs and she communicated it really well. I was then able to advise her and plan!  By telling me how important it was to her to have lots of photos with her parents I was able to ensure we captured all the emotion between her and her family. Natalie took great care in choosing her suppliers and ensured that her wedding was visually ” en point.” Selecting images for this post was tricky, there were so many that could have featured but in the end I want for the ones which best reflected my documentary, observational approach.

Black tie worked so well too as it tied in with my emphasis on black and white imagery.

Fellow photographer and friend, Susie Lawrence, came along to photograph the boys getting ready and assist for the day….with two Suzy/Susies no one had any problems remembering our names! Great fun too to spend the day with Mark Lenik of Lenik Wedding Cinematography

What a wonderful day we all had, it felt as though the stars had aligned photographically and even the rain which fell just as Natalie and James left Beverley Minster didn’t dampen spirits- I love the shots as they left the Minster- unrestrained happiness reflected their faces.

There is so much I could say about this wedding but I will let the photographs do the talking; However,  mention must be made of how stunning Natalie looked in her Rosa Clara gown, the friendliness of the guests, the fantastic organisation by Helen at Rise Hall (which made things run so smoothly), the divine three course dinner I enjoyed courtesy of Bon Appetite specialist catering and the thrill of photographing a wedding in the imposing and impressive Beverley Minster – having done it once I want to go back!

Thank you Natalie and James for booking with me…we have had a lot of fun!
