Gibson Mill Vintage Wedding Shoot

I recently had a meeting with the super people down at Gibson Mill about photographs for their new wedding brochure.  Set in the ancient woodland of Hardcastle Crags, it is one of my favourite spots for a walk.  The Mill is a totally self sustaining building and is a stunning location for photographs in all seasons!  In spring the woodland by the Mill is covered in bluebells and I did a number of family portraits this year amongst the flowers with the dappled sunlight breaking through the trees.

I decided to give the wedding shoot a vintage feel as it seemed to fit with the location and the history of the building.  When the Mill was used as an entertainment emporium in the early 20th century, the middle floor was used as a Dance Hall and the top floor, known as the Lord Holme Restaurant, was a first class dining area.  People from far and wide would come to Hardcastle Crags for high tea and a dance!

A very big thank you to Lucy Conroy from Lucy and the Caterpillar and Nathan Baker from Style Service.  They looked fantastic!  Lucy is playing on Sunday 10th July at Hole in t'Wall as part of this year's Hebden Bridge Arts Festival.  Click on the link for more information.
