Yorkshire Dales break

We had a couple of nights away in the Yorkshire Dales and very nice it was too.

The landscapes were beautiful and the local artists were hugely inspirational; I came back much invigorated.

We stayed in Muker, across the road from The Farmer's Arms. The village nestles in its landscape quite perfectly

Swaledale is famous for its meandering dry stone walls enclosing tiny fields and old stone barns. The showery weather gave perfect light across the fields and hills...

It is possible to find other things to photograph apart from those walls...

Ariste & Paul 5th April 2012

Ariste & Paul married on a beautiful sunny day in The Treehouse at The Alnwick Garden with a small group of their closest friends and families many of whom had travelled across the Atlantic for the occasion.

The day started for me at The White Swan in Alnwick where Ariste & Sabina were very chilled out as they put their finishing touches to their preparations.

Ariste's Mum's antique ring was stunning and seemed very fitting for the occasion.

The boys head off to The Treehouse leaving Ariste's Dad to do his fatherly duty.

I travelled with the girls who seemed to enjoy their ride in the Rolls Royce from Alnwick Wedding Cars.

Everyone gathered at The Treehouse..

...and the ceremony was beautiful. I love the intimate atmosphere of The Roost and the feel suited Ariste & Paul's wedding very nicely.

We wandered round Alnwick Castle grounds and The Gardens taking in a few old doors!

Then it was back to the Treehouse for 3 very different but excellent speeches and my day came to an end.

It was a wonderful day and I was really privileged to play a part in the day's proceedings. Thanks, Ariste and Paul, for having me there as part of your wedding.

Best Wishes
