Lucy and Jordan’s wedding at Goldsborough Hall

Earlier in the Summer, I had the pleasure of photographing Lucy and Jordan’s fantastic wedding day at the stunning Goldsborough Hall in North Yorkshire.

Bridal prep

I started the day at Lucy’s parent’s home in the beautiful village of Monk Fryston. I had a great time getting to know everyone, and there was a lovely relaxed, yet exciting atmosphere. I was introduced to the squid dance during bridal prep, which was very insightful. There is always something very special about starting the day in the family home. Once Lucy was ready, she headed into the garden for her big reveal. There were lots of tears, and it was time to rock.


I walked over to the church St Wilfrids’ in Monk Fryston. I noticed that Jordan had left his wedding car outside, which was a fabulous Lotus Exige, and it did look good. Jordan seemed pretty calm, I could tell he had some nerves, but he just looked excited.

The vicar did an excellent job of the ceremony. There was a moment when he gave out some Celebration chocolates. I was very impressed with the service’s mixture of seriousness and fun.

Goldsborough Hall

I was looking forward to photographing at Goldsborough Hall, one of the venues I have wanted to photograph at for quite some time, but this was my first time, and it didn’t disappoint.

We were blessed with glorious sunshine, which always helps; it’s great when I can photograph a wedding outside.

The afternoon was a mixture of capturing guests mingling; a magician, Harrison the Perecptionist, did a great job amazing the guests. We did some group pictures, and everyone had a fabulous time.


I was delighted to see that the wedding breakfast was in the orangery. The orangery is bathed in beautiful light, a wedding photographer’s dream. The speeches were short but very lovely. The afternoon was very relaxed.


After a relaxed wedding day, it was time to turn up the volume. I knew that Lucy and Jordan had a ceilidh planned which is always interesting. I LOVE photographing ceilidhs, it’s carnage, and there is no set way to capture one. Spend my time at ceilidhs getting run over and kicked, but they are always amazing. It was great to see how everyone got involved and grapevined and dosey doed into the night.

A fantastic day

It was a fantastic wedding day; everyone was lovely, the photos were full of laughs and smiles, and I feel very privileged that I had the opportunity to photograph such a beautiful wedding.

Thank you, Jordan and Lucy and congratulations.
