I took the train a few stops to Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire on Sunday for a pre-wedding photography session with these two lovebirds. Kerri and Sam found me while browsing Rock My Wedding, and came across a session I’d shot for Jess and Chris on their house boat in London, which struck a chord with them as they live on the water too! They told me they’d assumed I was London based, so were very pleased to discover I’m in Yorkshire like them! Although their boat used to be moored in Hebden Bridge they’ve since moved on so we just had a wander round the beautiful town in the sunshine and went to a couple of pubs, which is pretty much my idea of a perfect Sunday!The first place we went, the Blue Pig was completely brilliant, a real old school working men’s club where two and a half pints of a very tasty locally brewed American-style pale ale and a couple of packets of crisps came in at less than the cost of one pint in Leeds city centre! It was great sitting out in the sunshine by the river and hearing about Kerri and Sam’s travels and discussing their plans for the wedding, particularly looking forward to seeing Kerri’s dress as she’s in the process of setting up her own bridal wear business, looking forward to collaborating on some shoots with her in the future! We then took a stroll back along the river into to town to find Hebden was in full swing, very much living up to it’s reputation with lots of live music and people burning incense in the street! I could have stayed there all evening to be honest but had to get back to Leeds for my tea. I’m really looking forward to their wedding, I feel like having met them it’s going to be a super chilled affair, and pretty excited they’ve got not one but two live bands playing, so I will have to make sure I’m wearing my dancing shoes!
Spent a great weekend in London, got to hang out with a load of photographer friends, saw the Radical Eye exhibition at Tate Modern, and met up with Leigh and Emmerson ahead of their wedding, for a wander round the south bank and a beer or three.
This was Ellie and David’s first trip to Leeds, they drove up from Essex for this session! Apparently David’s workmates were worried for his sanity, but I reckon it was worth the trip!
A windy walk around the Cow & Calf rocks at Ilkley Moor is an excellent wedding hangover cure. That and a pint at the Cow & Calf pub over the road.All the greenery made an interesting change from my usual urban-industrial pre-wedding locations, always good to mix things up!Sonia & Sean were great company, really…
