I’ve been looking forward to posting Claire & Lee’s wedding on the blog for a while now. The day started at the lovely Wheatley Arms in Ilkley. The rooms there are fantastic and the light coming through the windows was just perfect….

I think Claire made a great choice that despite having a lovely home in Ilkley getting ready in a nearby Hotel really added something special to the day.

Annabel joined us on the preshoot a few weeks earlier, I’d say it paid off as she was totally at ease with Nicola and myself 🙂

We then raced off to Bolton Abbey Priory. We’ve photographed Melissa & Matt’s wedding here last year so we knew we were in for a treat…

Our plan B was to return to Bolton Abbey if the weather wasn’t so good straight after the ceremony, so we jumped back in the car and got some great shots…

The Devonshire Arms Wedding Photography

I have to say the Devonshire Arms did a great job, the room looked fantastic. Helped by the fact Lee runs a company that makes fantastic wedding stationary, Absolutely Inviting I’d really recommend giving them a look if you are currently looking for wedding stationary. Their invitations in particular are amazing.

What a great day !!! We had a great time, and to top it all off the food at the Devonshire is always top notch! So a massive thanks to Claire & Lee for that 🙂
