Cat & Tim's Beautiful Wedding In Nidderdale

It was a beautiful sunny day in early June when I made my way over the hills to Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale.  It was Cat and Tim's wedding day, and I knew from getting to know them and chatting, that this was going to be a very special wedding!  Me and Gavin, my second shooter on the day, popped in to see Tim and the lads preparing.  There was a flurry of tea drinking, ironing and shoe shining.

Then, it was up the dale to the Sportsman's Arms to take a few prep shots of Cat, her bridesmaids and a few details.

The sun was shining over the whole dale, and we travelled a little further to the cute little church which is perched on the edge of Middlesmoor village, looking out onto the most beautiful countryside.

 After a few photos at the church, we travelled back down into Wath to The Sportsman's for the reception.  Everyone was milling outside drinking Pimms and soaking up the glorious sunshine, laughter filling the air!  Cat had designed all the gorgeous birdie table name cards and they had used wood from their garden as a perch for their cake and to hold the table decorations.  I love these personal touches...

We had a little stroll down the lane to take a few photos together.  I was so impressed by Cat's amazing calm reaction to a wet dog emerging from the river, and careering towards her!  After a drama that could have had a very different ending, we went into a sun-kissed field to capture a few shots...

After the meal, there was time to relax in the grounds once again, and as the sun lowered in the sky, we were bathed in beautiful golden light.  The perfect end to the perfect day.
