This gallery is of my wedding photography from the venues around Harrogate and the Yorkshire Dales. You can see examples of wedding photography in the beautiful parkland setting of Rudding Park and the lakeside of Ripley Castle. Wood Hall near Wetherby with its stunning views and Markenfield Hall, a spectacular mediaeval house and Hotel du Vin in Harrogate, a beautiful boutique wedding venue - and all have their own separate pages on this site.
From a civil wedding ceremony in Leeds Civic Hall to a large marquee wedding at Harewood House to a Jewish wedding in a Synagogue to civil partnerships, I have covered all types and sizes of wedding in recent years. I even photographed a goth wedding on Halloween Night at Ripley Castle! You can see some recent weddings on my blog.

As part of the wedding photography I can offer an engagement portrait shoot. It is a great way to build up a rapport with me and the shots can be used for invites or a signing frame for the wedding. It is quite nice to do this at your venue and have a chat about the photography while we do this but it could be at any location.

The Photography

Based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire with over 20 years experience photographing weddings, I pride myself in being a quick and efficient photographer and with a relaxed approach I record the wedding day as it unfolds. Much of this is done in an unobtrusive way without the need to set shots up although I would still do the more formal family groups but would try to keep these to a minimum.

A pre-wedding chat on the run up to the wedding can really help with how efficient the day goes, and will help to tailor the photography to your personalities and your exact requirements.

My aim is not to take over the day but be a part of it with a good interaction with the guests to get the best of the more informal and candid shots and really capture the all the fun and excitement. From formal family groups to the relaxed and informal bridal portraits I try to make it fun and make sure every one enjoys the photographic experience!

After the wedding your selection of images will form the layout of the album, with a mix of black & white and colour in a magazine style that tells the story of the day as it unfolded. It is then presented in a beautiful bound album that you will be proud to display to your friends and family as a fond memento of this special day!
Dear Tim, I just wanted to send you a message to say a huge thank you for your input on Saturday and indeed in planning the day. We really appreciated the time that you took to meet with us and discuss the sort of the photographs we wanted. I also wanted to thank you for the unobtrusive way you took the photographs and your patience in getting the required family members to the standard shots, especially at the house when you very discreetly went about your business, we hardly knew you were there and despite the difficult weather conditions you managed to get the photographs done. Again, our very sincere thanks for all your input. It has been a pleasure meeting you and “working” with you. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day as I think you could see and were very happy with way you handled the very important part of the day which of course will be a reminder of a very happy day.
TB from a Rudding Park wedding
Tim is a pleasure to work with as well as a fabulous photographer! From our first enquiry to lead-up to our wedding he was our clear choice! He gave us a great experience during our meetings with him and our pre-wedding photo shoot at Woodhall. On our wedding day, Tim was so friendly, polite and kind to everyone he came across (which was noted by all of our guests). He just let us, our family and friends enjoy our day from the beginning to end. Tim not only captured our precious moments he captured our feelings, emotions and the atmosphere of the day, without being intrusive. He hasn’t given us just pictures, he has given us a lifetime of images to enjoy year after year in digital and book bound. We knew exactly what we wanted from our photographer, Tim and his work was so much more. I have and will continue to highly recommend

Tim came and took photographs at my daughter's wedding, He covered the whole day with such detail and enthusiasm. The photographs that he took are so varied..some are quite classic in composition, others are less formal, particularly the ones of the children and he really captures the character of the child. He has a really good eye for the composition of each photograph. The other thing is that he is so nice and unobtrusive whilst he is taking the photographs and I think that is why everyone looks so relaxed in them. The album he has done for us is quite amazing. We can't praise him enough and only wish we had known about him, when another daughter married eight or nine years ago.
We would both like to thank you. On the day you were simply wonderful and ensured our wedding was recorded through a wonderful array of photographs, but at the same time you were discreet when needed and sort to lead when required, to ensure we had our family photographs as requested. We felt relaxed, supported and in very safe hands. After our honeymoon we spent a full morning looking through your wonderful pictures. From the informal snaps of our family arriving, to people preparing for the day, to the actual wedding itself and the reception afterwards, not a moment was missed and you conveyed the joy, excitement and feelings of the day. We relived every moment – it was wonderful. Your ability to put people at ease, catch those key and very special moments and your professionalism made our day. Thank you so much Tim
