seaside

by Simon Cardwell

This was my first time at the Raven Hall Hotel near Whitby & when I first arrived I was slightly taken aback by the setting. The bride had told me it was on the coast but I wasn’t prepared for the hotel literally being located directly overlooking the sea.

It made for a breathtaking location for a wedding ceremony:

Photo of the Week 8 by Simon Cardwell

This week’s photo comes from the pier at Saltburn. The seaside is something I like to capture in my work where possible. On this occasion the wedding was taking place at the Spa Hotel in Saltburn so it provided us with the perfect opportunity to explore the sea front.

Wedding Photography from Rushpool Hall near Saltburn by Simon Cardwell

Here is a selection from a recent wedding at Rushpool Hall near Saltburn. This is a venue I have frequented over the years, and I have always liked it for its beautiful seaside location & expansive grounds.

There are so many options here for photographs, you can wander deep into the grounds or if it is cold or wet you can stay close to the main building & still use a number of great backdrops.

Wedding Photography on Saltburn Pier & sea front by Simon Cardwell

As I've mentioned before, sometimes I don't have long to get the photos I need on the day. It is often a case of a small window of time to get as many shots as you can. 

On this occasion we found ourselves on Saltburn Pier on a cold November day. 

I work at the Spa Hotel in Saltburn a couple of times a year but up until now I have not had a couple that have requested to go to the sea front & pier for photographs. 

So I was pleased on this occasion when the bride & groom asked me to go down there for photographs. 

Here are my favourites from on the day:
