Kate & Craig’s summer wedding in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, the stunning Saddle Rooms at Leyburn
Saddle Rooms Wedding Photography Kate & Craig
Saddle Rooms Wedding Photography. Weddings take me all across the UK, and for Kate and Craig’s I was up in the one of England’s most beautiful areas, the Yorkshire Dales.
This was my first time shooting at the Yorkshire Dales Wedding venue, Saddle Rooms in Leyburn. It’s a little known venue, sitting next door to The Forbidden Corner, a popular day out attraction, and was such a pleasure to shoot at.
Surrounded by iconic Yorkshire Dales hillside and a homely interior, Katie and Craig had picked such a wonderful place to tie the knot. The ceremony takes place on a lawn looking out from the main house, which I think is an infinity lawn, as you literally look out onto rolling hillside. The weather stayed strong, and we all enjoyed a warm ceremony in the sun.
Drinks outside, and into the barn at the rear of the venue, which is super bright and airy inside. Speeches were fantastic, getting everyone in tears as I was jumping about the room capturing the reactions. The sun stayed out, and golden hour descended- a photographer’s dream.
I’d scouted out the venue, and found a huge moor overlooking the dales, full of long grass and epic backgrounds. I took Kate and Craig for a quick break from the madness of the wedding and caught some lovely moments of just the two of them on the moor.
Their little three year old, Georgia had such a fun day at the wedding, alongside her two crazy cousins. I captured lots of them running around, causing mischief, blowing bubbles and just being kids!
The night came on quickly, and the wedding was definitely a good few drinks in, and the party on the dance floor started straight away. Huge shoutout to brilliant Harrogate wedding DJ Mark Green! Kate and Craig’s Saddle Room wedding will go down in my memory as having some of the wildest and most impressive dance moves off a bunch of talented lads at a wedding. I hope you enjoyed some of those worm moves and breakdancing, capturing them was too much fun.
