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.

Bridal make up images, we usually tray and wait until he make up is almost finished before move in for some touch up photographs. Brides sometimes prefer to do their own make up as above with Rachel earlier this year.
Wentbridge House Hotel for Jess’ make up before her wedding to Lee in the summer. We used the make up artists light to take the photograph through, creating some flare and a nice frame for Jess and the make up artist. Wentbridge House wedding photography examples can be found here
An often copied shot we often do for mascara. we’ve seen so many bad examples where wedding photographers try and copy this signature make up photograph!

Allerton Castle bridal preparation in the Palace Suite. Liberal amounts of hairspray applied to Shumin ahead of her wedding at Allerton castle earlier this year.
Once the bride has stepped into the dress and is no longer feeling exposed we head back into the room to capture the bridesmaids / mum or whoever is fastening the dress, hopefully smiles and giggles all round.

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.
