Papa Kata Wedding | Star Inn | Yorkshire | Holly & Dan

Yesterday we had the pleasure of being up on Rock My Wedding with Holly & Dan’s Papa Kata wedding at the Star inn in Harome, Yorkshire, so we thought it would be quite fitting today to run a full blog post showing more pictures from their beautiful day. Here it is!

Love this yellow and grey combination…

Erica - Thanks David – this was a wonderful wedding to photograph. That is one of our favourite shots too – perhaps takes a fellow photographer to spot the chap on the bicycle so quickly!

Woodthorpe Hall Wedding | Claire & Danny’s Feedback

Last year we had the pleasure of shooting Claire & Danny’s wedding at Woodthorpe Hall, and we just wanted to share the feedback they gave us. Now, Danny was a lovely yet sneaky ol’ fellow, because it wasn’t until near the end of the wedding day that he shared with us that he lectures in photography! We’ve shot the weddings of quite a few photographers now and it’s always a nice feeling to get the stamp of approval from peers, and we loved the feedback that they wrote for us. It’s also a good opportunity to share a few photos from their day…here are just a few that give the flavour of their amazing day.

“A massive THANK YOU for your patience and hard work throughout the day, you are both such lovely people it was a pleasure to have you with us on such a wonderful day. Our pictures look truly amazing and really capture the laid back atmosphere created by our family and friends. From one photographer to another; I admire your appreciation of light and your dedication to the preservation of your own style, to quote Ansel Adams:

-‘You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved’-

Need I say more?

Best Wishes
Mr and Mrs Bell”

One Experience – Launch Day!

And so here it is – launch day for One Experience – our brand new venture!

Undertaking a One Experience with us is about more than just the photographs. It’s about taking time out to discover, re-discover, connect and re-connect with what’s important in your life. We’ve called it a One Experience because it’s about bringing all these things together as one, though it should be far from a once in a lifetime occurrence.

We have created One Experience as a way of documenting the journey of your love at various intervals throughout your life, and as a way of breaking out of the tradition of restricting meaningful photography to engagements and weddings. It’s an experience we believe is perfectly suited to film photography, and we’ll be working entirely with this medium.

The best way to find out all about One Experience and the ethos behind it is by visiting our website at
Please drop on by the website and have a good look around, and don’t be afraid to say hello at our One Experience Facebook page at
