We could not be happier with the photos!! Every single photo is captured so perfectly and artistically. We love the candid style with which Kirsty captured our guests and ourselves whilst also having some beautiful natural portraits. Kirsty really captured the feeling of the day through her pictures and we will treasure every single one for many many years to come. There’s only one problem- we haven’t got enough wall space to hang all the amazing photos and we can’t choose which ones to frame ???? If you are looking for a wedding photographer then you need look no further as you absolutely will not be disappointed with Kirsty – the photos speak for themselves. Thank you for capturing out day so perfectly!

Confetti at Wharfedale Grange

The South Barn which is used for the wedding reception is a stunning room with designer tables and a huge rose gold mirror ball which is the centrepiece of the dance floor. I particularly love the fact that they make a big show of any cake cutting or bouquet throwing by doing this in the middle of the dance floor. Couples can also choose to have the famous Wharfedale Grange confetti canons for their first dance, which makes for some pretty epic photography! In fact, confetti is a big thing at Wharfedale Grange. You can have it outside in the courtyard, inside under the balcony or on the dance floor. See examples below;

Creative, Natural Wedding Photography at Wharfedale Grange

I’m primarily a documentary style wedding photographer which means I have a very natural approach to capturing your day. I’m not interested in fake grins or posing people. My aim is always to capture how your day feels not just how it looks, by photographing moments that have real meaning. I’m all about the laughter, the joy, the tears and the personalities and really photographing the character of your day. That’s not to say I won’t make some beautiful creative portraits, which I love doing,  but these will also be done in a very natural way.

I also won’t take you away from your guests for a long time for group shots. Of course, I always include group shots if you would like but I get these done quickly and efficiently so you can get back to chatting with your guests. Please see more information on my approach here.
