I really enjoy photographing at new venues so it was really nice to travel up to North Yorkshire to Swinton Park in Masham near Ripon to photograph Nicola and Marc’s wedding. I knew, somewhere in the back of my mind, that I recognised Masham or I had been there before but it wasn’t until I finally arrived that I realised why it was so familiar. Masham is very very famous for it’s breweries and, being a bit of a beer lover, the Theakston brewery was a familiar and welcome sight! However, tempted to go on a brewery tour as I was, I started off with some outdoor scene setting shots of rolling hills, sheep, wild deer and this rather nice shot of Swinton Park taken from over the lake.
Arriving inside Nicola and her bridesmaids were getting ready in probably the largest suite of rooms I have ever photographed in. I did have a little chuckle to myself as a few days before at Andrew and Katies wedding I had photographed about 12 people all in what was essentially a single room whilst Katie was getting ready – one extreme to the other!
