When on the lookout for her wedding photographer for her woodland wedding, Lauren knew to give me a shout. I’ve known her since we were at school together, so she’s one of the lucky ones to see me grow as a professional photographer, though not with a full head of hair! Her and Richard’s wedding was booked for Hirst Priory, round the corner from me, although technically in South Yorkshire.

Woodland wedding

Lauren and Richard were married in the late summer months and so a lot of their outdoor wedding features the outside. Bridal prep happened in the main bedroom of the house and at this point I need to mention that Lauren had one of the best wedding make up artists around. I mean, Beth is her sister so I imagine there was no chance she’d have been anywhere else! Go and check out her work. And also maybe check out the party photos for an example of how Beth can be very, very funny! Sorry, not sorry. My job is to document things as they happen, and maybe encourage some bad behaviour too… 🙂

Hirst Priory

Right between Doncaster and Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire, Hirst Priory is one of those wedding venues that is going from strength to strength. They keep adding new options for couples, from the original wedding ceremony room that now includes the woodland wedding space and The Vaults – the basement brick archway which looks gorgeous with twinkly electric or candle lights – perfect for wedding photos. The wedding meal and speeches, plus all of the late night partying was held in the house. (and there was a lot of partying!) It was a fantastic day for everyone! The wheat fields nearby were in full golden show and so we were able to sneak a few of their gorgeous couples photos out there. This time of year is a wedding photographer’s dream! They’re such a happy couple, there’s so much laughter in their wedding from them, and their guests. It is one wedding that I’ve been determined to blog for a while now.

Outdoor wedding

Here are a small selection of photographs from their day. I delivered nearly 1300 fully edited wedding photographs from this wedding. Lots happened throughout the day and had to keep all of those quirky photos in there! If you would like to see the full gallery then please send me a message – as a wedding photographer I’m more than happy to show all of my, and the wedding venues potential.


Love this Hirst Priory wedding? Me too! As a Doncaster wedding photographer, and as this venue is the nearest to my home I’m here a lot. Check out this tipi wedding just down the road, or Hirst Priory wedding held at the end of beginning of spring.
