Bride and groom on the steps of Wentworth Castle

Gorgeous wedding photography in Wentworth Castle gardens

I love the spectacle of a castle wedding – and there’s something very English about the luxury of a huge wedding venue with a rich history, with wedding guests in their finery milling around like lords and ladies.

Not to mention a beautiful bride in cascades of silk, swishing and swirling around like a real princess – and Lucy is wonderful in this gorgeous wedding shot by Tierney Photography.

Lucy and Patrick were married at Wentworth Castle, Barnsley just a few weeks ago. They both look fantastic in these photographs, and I really love the style of their wedding day: classy, vintage and full of emotion.

The day will take you from ear-to-ear smiles, to happy tears and real pride – the images of Lucy and Patrick around the wedding venue show a happy, proud and made-for-each-other bride and groom. Enjoy!

Vintage styled photo of Maria and Tom - beautiful

Would you like a little extra sunshine in your life today? I’ve got some, all beautifully bundled up in this gorgeous wedding full of bright Caribbean colours. Maria’s family had travelled from Trinidad for the wedding, and even booked a steel band to play at the reception as a surprise.

Happily for Maria and Tom, their choice of gorgeous orange and yellow for the flowers and decorations at their wedding more than made up for the Yorkshire skies (which weren’t quite up to Trinidadian standards that day)!

Maria and Tom were married in August in Kirkburton, Yorkshire, and held their wedding reception at Wortley Hall in Barnsley. All of these gorgeous images are courtesy of Yorkshire wedding photographer Mark Tierney.

So beautiful... English summer wedding with cloudy skies

English weddings… Yorkshire… summertime… I think I went all summer without mentioning the rain, but let’s face it here in the UK we do get the odd shower, we love to talk about the weather and we can always make the most of things.

This wonderful wedding from Tierney Photography has a few umbrellas and hundreds of huge smiles – I love everything about it!

Beautiful bride, by Tierney Photography

Joanna keeps an eye on the weather and I can't take my eyes off that dress - layers and layers of flowing lace - wow. She looks fantastic.

Bride fashion photography

A contemporary statement photo works just as well to portray a dynamic and stunning bride.

Bride and groom in the English countryside

Bride and groom in the English countryside

I’ve been looking at this set of wedding photographs for days and can’t wait to post them. With this week’s weather and the shots from Joanna and Liam’s wedding I can’t resist mentioning the rain… but it instills a kind of calm and serenity in me at times.

These images from Tierney Photography in Yorkshire are beautiful. The cloudy, misty, swirly skies and the soft tones in the photos are as romantic as the sunniest August day. I love this wedding and I think there’s a lot to be said for the English weather… see what you think when I post the full wedding for you tomorrow.

(I’m posting a preview partly because this is a very busy time for calligraphy and I’ve been burning the candle at both ends… forgive me. But I think this photo deserves a little feature of its own!)
