Wedding Photography at Aldwark Manor Hotel, York / by Simon Cardwell

For my first blog post of 2019 I am going to share with you some photographs from a recent wedding at Aldwark Manor near York.

This was a very relaxed wedding with an easy going vibe, which suits me as I can just shoot away:

While most of the work I do on the day is shot in a natural style, I like to do some group photos too. I find for the length of time they take to do (25 minutes maximum usually) they are always worth having. Its a document of who was there on the day:

Besides the group pictures, the other time on the day when I need to do a little bit of posing is for the bride & groom portraits.

I try to do this as naturally as possible as I find most couples I work with aren’t hugely keen on posing for photographs:

Sometimes you find a photograph on the day, not one you usually take or might look for. In this instance, the groom was preparing for his speech & had taken a moment to himself.

It ended up being one of my favourite photographs of the year:

The moment when the bride & groom enter the room for the wedding breakfast is one of my favourite parts of the day & it usually gives you some great pictures:
