Spent Monday afternoon pounding the pavements of York with Amy and Alex. I love a wander round it’s windy streets anyway, but getting a tour from Amy who grew up nearby was great, it was so much fun combining her local knowledge with my tendency to wander off down interesting looking alleys! By their own admission they’d rather live up here but currently their work means they have to be down in London. I’ve never noticed the amount of geese around, but Amy certainly did, she was not a fan! Like most couples who book a pre-wedding session, they were pretty nervous about it beforehand, but once I’d explained that cameras are stupid and can’t tell the difference between nervous laughter and genuine joy they soon got into the swing of things! They told me afterwards that they’d felt super self-conscious at the start, but by the time we’d laughed and joked our way round half of York (the Whippet Inn?! Really?!) they were happy busting out the PDA’s in the fairly busy train station. I think they were just happy not to be standing next to bins for a change (honestly, so often the best photos are by the bins!). Really looking forward to their wedding in Nunburnholme in a few weeks, if you start in York it’s on the Highway to Hull, and another step closer to my dream wedding destination of Wetwang. Honestly, look it up, it’s an actual place!
Had a right laugh with these guys, my kind of people! Been working flat out getting Light Space Leeds, a new co-working space for creatives in north Leeds ready for our opening party on Thursday so asked them to meet me there, finished wiring up the lights just as they arrived so was very grateful to have a good reason to go to the pub and then for a wander around the carparks of Meanwood (started with Asda then went upmarket with a bit of Waitrose!)
Can’t wait for their wedding in Scarborough in a few weeks time, think I’ll be wearing my dancing shoes!
Loved wandering round sleepy Ripon with these guys, started at Ripon Cathedral where they first met. Got given hot cross buns by some nice people on the market square. Nearly went home with both of their phones in my bag but fortunately they remembered just in time! All in all a pretty good way to spend a Friday afternoon.
Second trip to Derby in a week to meet up with Bex and Pete (the first was to visit Format, a fantastic bi-annual photography festival), had a great time hanging out with them both, and found a gorgeous little Sam Smith’s pub just around the corner from their wedding venue which was good to know!
Spent a beautiful sunny day – one of the first of the year – having a beer or three and wandering round the bottom of Leeds with Sarah & Joe, before heading up to our very much work-in-progress new co-working space in Meanwood. All in all a pretty great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
