Being the wedding photographer always brings a smile to my face, I think it’s often overlooked that the photographer gets to really be involved in every stage of a wedding day, from the morning nerves of the couple, all of the preparation that goes into getting ready, rushing around, clock watching and all associated thoughts, the only difference is that as the photographer I get to keep out of the way and capture all of this amazing concoction of emotions throughout each wedding.
Hannah and Richard Adams’ wedding was no exception. I started my day off early, travelling from Sheffield to Whitby through the amazing views in the North York Moors. Arriving early with Hannah and bridesmaids at the quaint location, ‘The Toll Bar‘ which boasts a sea view and plenty of space for the whole family’s wedding preparation.
From here we headed over to what must be one of Whitby’s most famous landmarks, St Mary’s Church at the top of the 199 steps. There’s something magical about a wedding with church bells and the hard work of the bell ringers is something to admire. Did you know, that if they become out of sync, they have to start over from the beginning!
After a short time capturing some more traditional photographs we headed over to the Stables at the Cross Butts for the reception and speeches. Shortly after the five speeches were complete, the whole room sat down to the one and only meal for a day in Whitby, fish and chips! (I had the vegan spring vegetable ‘katsu’ curry, yum!) It wasn’t long after the disco was in full swing, with wedding disco classics such as Top Gun’s Danger Zone and Slipknot… well, I never said this was a traditional wedding.
As always, I’ve had an amazing time and lots of fun capturing one of the most important days of a couples life together. Hannah, Richard, thank you for having me capture your day of celebration with family and friends.
Lee Cant – Sheffield Wedding Photographer.
Some lovely feedback…
“Well, where to start with this guy (Lee).
What a fantastic job he did of capturing the magical moments at our Wedding.
Lee wasn’t noticed while he was shooting which was great for me as it was one less thing to put me off remembering my vows!
Lee captured the atmosphere of our day brilliantly.
He got all of the shots that you would expect on your Wedding day and all of the natural shots that make the photo’s so amazing, All the laughs, the smiles and the fooling around.
He painted a perfect picture of the day starting at the Bride’s location where she was getting ready, then to St. Mary’s Church where the Groom was waiting with all of our guests and then onto the amazing reception venue, The Stables at Crossbutts, where the speeches were held and dancing commenced.
Lee was always discreet and professional but also a brilliant guest at our big day.
His service has been second to none and the turnaround on the photos was unbelievable, no one expected them to be done as quickly as they were.
I would not hesitate to call him for any more photographic needs and I would recommend him to anyone.
Thank you Lee for capturing our day.
P.S turns out he’s a great dancer too!!”
Hannah and Richard Adams, Bride and Groom.
