Gilling Old Mill Barn Wedding Photos Yorkshire
Emma & Tye were married in Richmond, North Yorkshire, 21st May 2016. This page features some of their Gilling Old Mill Barn Wedding Photos Yorkshire
It was an absolute honour to be asked to experience what can only be described as one of the, emotional, heart felt & loving weddings I’ve been part of. To feel the emotion at weddings only helps capture what I want to capture. Its vital to observe in-between shooting, & keep listening to whats being said between couples, small groups & large rooms. This means I’m on hand to look out for that burst of laughter, the warm hug from Nan & bamps or that tear shed during the speeches. Tingles down the spine don’t happen very often in a lifetime, being a photographer shooting weddings up & down the country means I get to experience that feeling more than most, & I’m grateful for it.
Emma & Tye,…… I met this charming couple at the end of a wedding fayre, a couple of years back. Emma with her strong Scottish accent & Tye with his east midlands, my 1st thought was, I can’t see this being a booking & they were there just for a nose, how wrong was I. Within minutes I felt at total ease with both, especially Tye, probably because I could understand his accent a little easier than Emma’s Lol….sorry Em xxx. They hadn’t chose a venue at this point & were basically looking at venues from the South to the North of the UK. Once the email came through that they’d booked Gilling Old Mill Barn in North Yorkshire & wanted me to travel up & shoot their special day, I was hit with excitement & the daunting thought of a 5 hour drive! The drive in the end was awesome, hit the road the day before with my side kick Adam, banged some tunes out & had a few jars(when we arrived of course) & discussed the wedding we were to shoot the next day.
The day arrived with a mixture of wet, windy & sunny spells a little bit like the emotions of the day. I like to get to know my clients a little before the wedding day, & their are weddings, you know are going to be a little more emotional than others. So when people stand up & talk about the loss of loved ones, or not having someone for support that so many of us take for granted, its fairly hard to take, but its so important to photograph. These moments is where I really fall for the individuals related to whats being said, & suddenly I question my own life & realise how lucky I am.
The emotions ran from start to finish, not all sorrow like what sounds above, far from it, the day was packed full of laughter, love & happiness. Once the ceremony had finished the clouds parted for glorious sunshine(until our long hour drive back home to South Wales lol). A small amount of groups shots were taken, but Emma & Tye’s main objective photographically, was to capture the day as naturally as possible. Letting people enjoy the drinks reception whilst taking in the awesome views over the valley & catching up with folk who they’d not seen for years. As you may have seen from my other work, photographing the bride & groom is a huge part for me & one I enjoy most. Emma & Tye gave us the time to get what we wanted. Natural/Documentary shots of them both without too much fussing around.
Guys, we thoroughly enjoyed your wedding day & the food was A MA ZING…… Why doesn’t everyone have ribs for starters & burger for mains!!!! Thank you so much for letting us photograph such an important day in your lives together, I hope you love your Gilling Old Mill Barn Wedding Photos xxx
