Craiglands hotel, Ilkley

At the end of April (whoops) I had the opportunity to photograph Laura and Will’s wedding at The Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley.  I’ve seen Laura and Will at quite a few weddings, so it was nice for them to be the centre of attention.  The whole wedding was geared around happiness and family which is a lovely idea. They both have fab friends and family, so it was great for everyone to be together.

The weather wasn’t behaving itself, but it didn’t stop everyone from having fun. There was a fab atmosphere in the room.  What was really nice for me was to be in a room with other couples whose wedding’s I had previously photographed so I enjoyed catching up (although I didn’t really stop taking pictures)

After the meal we managed to sneak out for a couple of minutes in between showers and grab a small handful of pictures. As per usual I had been booked to photograph the story of the day and not do loads of couple pictures but I always try my best to have five or ten minutes with the bride and groom (it’s also a nice break for the couple).

In the evening the dancefloor filled up, so I got plenty of drunk pictures (some folk even fell over) which is always a good sign.

Congratulations Laura and Will, thanks very much for allowing me to photograph your special day.
