Wedding Photography at the George, Piercebridge, near Darlington / by Simon Cardwell

Today I would like to share with you some photographs from a wedding at The George Hotel near Darlington. Located in North Yorkshire this is a venue I visit periodically & it always good smoothly here.

Starting as usual with the bridal preparations:

After an hour or so I go downstairs & catch up with the groom:

Then swiftly back up to the bride again:

This one probably ended up as my favourite photo from the day:

Just before the ceremony is about to get underway I come downstairs & take up a position:

Gilwell Park Essex

An unexpected photo that presented itself immediately before the ceremony:

Once the ceremony is complete, as this wedding took place over the summer we can get outdoors & make use of the grounds. Set on a beautiful riverbank, in dry weather I try & make full use of what is available:

Again, weather permitting. I like to shoot the group photographs on the riverbank:

For the bride and groom portraits I usually start on the riverbank too:

The groom was a car enthusiast so we went out the front of the venue to get a few photos. I usually end up standing in the middle of the road for these shots, passing cars are always very understanding & often beep as they pass:
