Beth & Dan’s Wedding

newlyweds walking away from the church

Beth & Dan got married on a bright and sunny (yet chilly!) day in November last year. They held their wedding at Ilam Hall, which is perfect for exploring the surrounding countryside, and even more so for Beth and Dan, as they love hiking and getting outdoors as much as possible. On the morning of their wedding they went for a walk to the nearby stepping stones at Dovedale, and I heard that some guests even managed the climb up Thorpe Cloud!

I had the best time spending the day with this pair and their family & friends. The whole day was so relaxed and welcoming, I honestly felt as much a guest as anything. Which makes it so easy to get in amongst everything and capture real “I was there” photos for them to remember their day in years to come. Here’s a few highlights from their special day.

“You captured so many fantastic moments of humour and warmth. Absolutely delighted. Gushing! The feel of the photos really takes us back to the greatest weekend of our lives.”
