Susan & Paul's Scorton Fair Wedding {Lancashire Wedding Photography}

July was a busy month for weddings, but strangely it's all a bit quiet for August so a chance for me to finally catch up on some editing and blogging. I'm kicking off with Susan & Paul's wedding which began for me with a return to St. Peter's Church at Scorton, Lancashire, after having been there only a few weeks earlier for Jayne & Rob's wedding. It's such a great Lancashire village church wedding venue, with a fabulous church set in beautiful grounds. Paul and his son's were enjoying greeting the guests when I arrived and I was straight to work in reportage-style capturing candids of the goings-on.
Susan arrived looking stunning, along with her lovely bridesmaid and two gorgeous flower girls in floral summer dresses.


After the ceremony and snaps in the grounds we all headed over to the marquee set up in a nearby field, which with tractors, steam engines, sunshine galore and some great music from Solid Silver had the lovely air of a village country fair, perfect for partying into the night...

Arcimboldo's Delicatessen, Harrogate {Lancashire Commercial Photography)

For a while now, I've been in conversation with my brother-in-law Martyn about taking some photos for his Harrogate Delicatessen "Arcimboldo's". Great name! and I must say it was hard to resist the temptation to make at least one portrait of Martyn in the Arcimboldo style, but no, what the client says goes! Well, a couple of week's back we finally found a free weekend and set about the job of snapping the place.

Arcimboldo's has been a feature on Harrogate's Kings Road for some years, but was very recently taken over by Martyn and he is now in the process of re-branding and making the store over in his own fashion.
And it's a beautiful store too, full of fantastic home-cooked delights, taste-bud bursting treats, melt-in-the-mouth delights, superb ingredients and the most gorgeous fine, fresh cheeses and cold meats!

I'm also delighted to have introduced Martyn, when he was looking for a fine coffee supplier, to Lancaster's finest of coffee emporiums "Atkinsons". So now Yorkshire and Lancaster alike can meet over artisan coffee and fine cake!

Here's some of the pics, and now I can't wait to see what the designer does with them for the soon-to-be re-launched Arcimboldo's website

And if you don't know who Arcimboldo was, well here's a little taster of his artwork!
