This is going to be a really special wedding for me. Aimee and Ben are getting married in a few weeks times at Fountains Abbey, followed by a reception at Ripon Racecourse. I am really really excited about their wedding because Aimee and I used to work together in PR. She and Ben were together then and I remember her talking about one day getting married. At that time I was very much into my PR career and I never in a million years dreamt I would be their wedding photographer. I think if I’d known I would have been so thrilled both for them and for myself! I can’t wait for the wedding which is going to have lots of lovely touches, including ‘Yorkshire tapas’ for the meal, which I’m hoping I’ll get to sample as it sounds intriguing and fun.
For their pre-wedding shoot, we went to the Canal Gardens at Roundhay Park. We thought we might have to escape into Tropical World as the weather was blowing hot and cold but we were able to give the meerkats a miss as the rain held off long enough to get some relaxed shots. Aimee and Ben were both convinced that they weren’t going to enjoy the session and that they don’t look good on photographs. Wrong! They went away smiling and I think they’ll now be convinced how gorgeous they both are. Here are a few favourites.
