Yorkshire Wedding Photographer | Leeds wedding photographers | Chris Chambers Photography

Each year we are lukcy enough to be invited along to a number of amazing weddings, sharing and capturing the special day with the bride, groom and their wedding guests, we’ve created three separate blog posts to showcase some of our recent images and those we have used in updating our wedding gallery.

This wedding photography blog post includes some bridal preparation and detail photographs, groom preparation and ceremony photographs from weddings in and around Leeds, Wakefield and  Yorkshire with a few a little further afield. Please feel free to pin these images on Pinterest or share this post on Facbook.

Bridal accessories photographed during a wedding at Allerton Castle North Yorkshire. We always try and capture some of the bridal details during the preparation before the wedding ceremony. Where possible and as in the above photograph at Allerton Castle we try and include  features or locations unique to the wedding venue.

Wentbridge House Hotel wedding ceremony outside in the folly. Very few venues have the opportunity to capture an outdoor ceremony in this way, Wentbridge House is fortunate in that it is surrounded by lots of open countryside and no buildings in the immediate proximity of the ceremony location. Special permission was obtained before we shot this image using our camera drone.
