The Kings Croft Hotel, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer


Bride and Groom take a relaxing walk after the wedding ceremony.

As a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer, every love story I have the honour of documenting is unique and holds a special place in my heart. Love has the remarkable ability to create magic, and when Joe and Kathryn exchanged their vows on a sunny July day in 2023, it was an enchanting celebration of their commitment. The picturesque church ceremony, heartwarming speeches, delectable dinner, and lively evening reception at The Kings Croft Hotel in Pontefract all wove together to create a day that will forever hold a special place in the hearts of everyone involved. Let us take you on a delightful journey through the memorable wedding of Joe and Kathryn.


The excitement of the day began with the bride, Kathryn, and her bridal party preparing for the ceremony at her family home. The atmosphere buzzed with joy and anticipation as the bridesmaids assisted Kathryn in getting ready. We captured these precious moments, immortalising the laughter and tender emotions that filled the room.

The ceremony was a breathtaking affair, filled with romance and solemnity. Kathryn's brass band, known for their mesmerising classical music, added a touch of elegance to the proceedings, creating an ambiance that truly resonated with the couple's personalities.
