Yorkshire wedding photographer: A York Parade ring wedding

March 27, 2020

We photographed this beautiful York wedding earlier in 2020 at the Parade Ring at York Racecourse. Louise and James had a fantastic day and we loved photographing it for them. As a Yorkshire wedding photographer we love to visit local venues that we haven’t visited before. This was our first ever York Racecourse wedding and below you will find a selection of some of our favourite images.

A beautiful spring morning.

On this cold spring day the sun was shining brightly as we pulled up to Louise and James’ house. Louise and her two maids of honour were inside getting ready for the amazing day that lay ahead. The whole morning was so relaxed. Louise and James’ beautiful home was a perfect setting for us as wedding photographers. We found every room was so brightly lit it was a dream to photograph in.

In between a few glasses of prosecco Louise even managed to get some quick washing up done! It’s not often we get to photograph a bride doing the housework on her wedding day but it’s natural moment like these that we love to capture. Louise’s maids of honours then helped into her stunning wedding dress. Louise’s dress was designed by Morilee and every guest commented how beautiful she looked.

We then travelled over to the Parade Ring Restaurant at York Racecourse to capture guests arriving. The weather as we mentioned was more than a little chilly! It was also windy and this led to guests hurrying inside. We could not argue with the weather though. Despite the cold winds it was a bright and beautiful spring day. What more can anyone ask for a March wedding?

After Louise arrived it was onto a really emotional wedding ceremony. Ronnie the maid of Honour gave a lovely reading which did not leave a dry eye in the house. We absolutely loved photographing Louise and James’ service. After the ceremony everyone enjoyed drinks and canap├ęs. A highlight for us was going for a romantic but very brisk walk with Louse and James. During this walk we captured some natural couple shots of them together.

We had such a good day photographing Louise and Jame’s wedding and of course every guest had such a wonderful time. Funny and emotional speeches to surprise singing waiters. This Yorkshire wedding really did have it all!

We left after the first dance after photographing some dance floor moments. Also one moment to pick out is when James was lofted high into the air just after the first dance! Altogether this really was such a joy of a wedding to photograph.
