York is somewhere I love to photograph. I seem to end up here quite often & it is a fantastic & diverse city.
I came here often as a child so it holds some nostalgic value for me, but it is a city that remains very relevant today.
The Principal Hotel is located literally next to the train station so its very easy to get to (York is a terrible place to park your car) by rail.
As usual I started off during the bridal preparations, & I like to photograph children as they are often much less guarded than adults:
This was one of my favourite photos from the day:
Downstairs for the wedding ceremony:
This one was one of my favourite pictures of the entire year. I couldn’t & still can’t decide if I prefer it in the original 3x2 shape or cropped into a square format:
This became a nice sequence, I think I prefer the black & white:
Onto the speeches:
You can never tell how long the speeches will be, so I always make sure I start photographing the bride & the groom, individually & also together. It means that if the speeches are short, you have covered the most important subjects, before moving onto guests.
The first dance:
