This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of documenting the wedding of Nick and Louise, or Lou Lou has she is better known by. From start to finish the day flowed with immaculate details, prettiness, happiness and lots of love. Louise is a girl with a big heart. She loves her family and friends dearly, and after spending a day with them all I know that this feeling is mutual.

I started the day with team bride over at Louise and Nicks house. The house was as it should be – full of happy! I love being around the girls when they get ready. It’s always so much fun. The music is on, things are being borrowed, laughs are being had- and the bubbly always flows well. Grays hotel York,Leeds Wedding Photographer;Wedding photography Leeds, Stylish wedding photography, Yorkshire wedding photography

Lou’s house was perfect for the preperation pictures, it was airy and light and every room was such a beautiful space.  Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-21 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-4 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-5 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-6

I knew that Louie’s day was going to be stylish and expected nothing less when I saw her Jimmy Choo’s and Pronovias dress.  Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-9 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-10 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-13 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-16 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-17Twigs supplied the day with stunning flora. Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-22 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-27

Lou’s friend Sanya did her make-up for her and did an amazing job. It was perfect all day, as was her hair by Lauren Woodham.Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-19 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-18 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-25 Grays hotel York,Leeds Wedding Photographer;Wedding photography Leeds, Stylish wedding photography, Yorkshire wedding photography Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-30 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-29 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-33

Whilst I was with the girls my second shooter Helen joined the men at the pub, who where having a few pre wedding pints. Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-blog-2 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-blog-3 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-blog Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-blog-10 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-blog-6 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-blog-8 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-blog-9

I always imagine how exciting it must be. To actually put on your gown for your day, after having it for so long. When Louise stepped into hers she looked beautiful. Truly beautiful.Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-35 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-36 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-38 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-45 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-43 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-39 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-42 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-49 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-46 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-47 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-52

I think it’s safe to say that’s one proud papa!  Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-51 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-54 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-56 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-57 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-58 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-62

Nick and Louise  both grew up in the village so it was quite special that they should get married at the village church as well. It was made even nicer by the fact that one of Louise’s best friends father married them both. Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-63 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-64 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-65 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-67 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-68 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-69 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-70 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-80 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-81 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-82 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-85 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-86 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-87 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-88 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-89 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-90 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-91

All the guests were bussed back to the reception on a vintage bus, where they handed out beers and bubbly for the journey. Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-92 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-93 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-94 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-95 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-97 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-99 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-100 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-98 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-101 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-104 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-103 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-102 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-105 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-106 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-107 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-119 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-121 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-122 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-149 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-152 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-150 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-151

With the venue having the York Minster on it’s doorstep, it was a must that we got some shots with it in view. Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-131 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-132 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-133 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-135 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-137 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-140 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-138 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-142 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-145 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-141 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-148 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-146

One off my very favourite things about the wedding breakfast was the long table. I loved it. It was setup simply, but with elegance. What can be nicer than looking up and down your table at your wedding and seeing all the faces  you love. This was such a great choice! Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-109 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-113 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-115 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-112 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-118 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-124 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-126 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-127 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-130 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-159 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-154 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-157 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-153 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-163 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-162 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-164 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-165

Speeches was fab. We had a few tears, some stories and plenty of laughs! Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-169 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-170 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-175 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-173 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-172 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-174 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-171 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-176 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-179 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-180 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-182 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-184 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-183  Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-186 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-187Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-185

After dinner we had another quick round of portraits. We took advantage of there being no rain, but none of us needed much persuasion with the gardens being this pretty.Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-189 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-194 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-190 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-188 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-193 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-198 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-201Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-199 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-202 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-196 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-197Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-204Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-206Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-207 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-209 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-208 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-212 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-213 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-214 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-221 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-216 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-219 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-222 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-224 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-218 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-227 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-229 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-228 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-230 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-233 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-234 Nick-and-Lou-Gray-Hotel-York-Wedding-236
