Liam & Natalie’s outdoor woodland wedding at Falling Foss, Whitby

“Firstly, just another huge heartfelt thank you for our amazing wedding photos and for capturing our special day in the wonderful way that you have. We are so unbelievably in love with our final set and just feel like we will never stop looking at them – ever.  I think what has impressed us the most is how you have have told the story of the day so perfectly with these pictures, yet we never noticed you and Lee capturing all the little details, we barely knew you were there at all which is evident in the lovely relaxed style of the pictures! In a world full of selfies and filters, it’s so wonderful to have a set of photos that are honest and natural so that we can remember the best day of lives exactly as it was –  just so full of love and laughter and happiness.”

Time to dust off our blogging gloves again, that ‘blog regularly’ rhythm is hard to get in the swing of. Let’s reminisce about the time that Liam and Natalie invited us to do their woodland wedding photography at Falling Foss Gardens in Yorkshire.

Time to dust off our blogging gloves

As we sit here in post-production we find ourselves looking at a rustic, outdoor woodland wedding that screams, ‘make a blog out of me, I need a page of my own, tell everyone about me!’ and so here we are.

It is safe to say that Liam and Natalie have been our number one fans since they booked us to photograph their wedding. Any Facebook or Instagram post, they have been there, waving their flags and supporting us (In fact, we have grown so used to it guys that we may need to bribe you to keep it up; a slice of cake, a bottle of red berry Bulmers, name your price?)

Falling Foss Tea Gardens in Whitby, North Yorkshire was the venue of choice for these two love birds. It was our very first time photographing at this stunning venue and unfortunately it will be our very last, as they are closing their wedding venue doors and focusing all their energies on their picture perfect tea gardens. Nevertheless, we feel lucky to have had the opportunity to photograph a wedding here, out in the open air under the tree canopy and often find ourselves dreaming of that sunny Saturday in July.

We love outdoor weddings

An excited buzz filled the woodland air, the sun was out (a relief for any outdoor wedding) and the rustic wedding decorations were in place. All we needed now was the bride.

Hushed tones swept over the forest floor and the music started up, she was here.

Happy tears, laughter, confetti, romance, friends, Bulmers, cake, more laughter, flowers, football chanting, food, food more food, more drink, polaroid photographs, one very special wooden barrel, bare feet, an insane dress, a murder on the dance floor (wait for the photographs), Jeeps, Jager shots, picnic benches, waistcoats, woodland walks, cheese, more laughter, family, love and Michael Jackson filled the next 9 hours.

Liam and Natalie’s wedding was a celebration of all the things they hold dear, it reflected their love for their family and friends as well as their passion for getting out there and exploring. The rustic outdoor setting made for a perfectly relaxed and lively wedding afternoon, where the guests enjoyed a pop up bar, a buffet style meal on picnic benches and a set of hilarious and emotional speeches.

As the guests partied away, Liam and Natalie took the opportunity to soak in that newlywed feeling and when they were ready, the four of us took a little time out to explore the surrounding areas and get some creative couples photographs. The pair are adventurers at heart, so nowhere was too difficult to get to. Natalie took the ‘adventuring bride’ title to another level as she climbed along the edge of the river in her designer stiletto heals and her gorgeous beaded wedding dress, to get to that point in-front of the bridge arch where she envisaged her dream wedding photograph. And boy, it was so worth it!

Thank you for having us

Wow, Liam and Natalie, what a wedding! Lee and I couldn’t have had more fun photographing it for you, thank you for inviting us to be a part of your special day. We will be going forward promoting outdoor woodland weddings to anyone who will listen.
