I'm so absolutely thrilled to have been asked to contribute to the Feb/March 2015 issue of 'You & Your Wedding' magazine. Not only that but to have a article on my favourite type of wedding guests, animals!
Being a huge animal lover myself I love it when couples involve their beloved furry or feathered friends in their big day. I'm really lucky to get a lot of clients who like to do this and it's becoming quite my speciality.
Anyway, here's the feature, hope you enjoy.xx

My First Winter Wedding featured in the North's Top Blog!!!
10th January 2012 - 0 comments
What a great start to the New Year! I'm thrilled to have my first winter wedding featured in the North's favourite wedding blog 'Brides Up North'.

The wedding of Charlotte & Tim took place in Boston Spa and York on a typical December day. I was quite nervous about this wedding in particular as it was my first winter wedding and these are notoriously difficult for photographers due to the lack of natural light. So much so that many wedding photographers shy away from them. So, ever keen to rise to the challenge I accepted and very pleased I did too! It was a truly wonderful day, I'm really happy with the shots and I know the couple are equally(testimonial to follow soon). And to top it all off the photos are now featured in a wedding blog! Very happy chappy indeed!
