Craiglands Hotel Ilkley Wedding

Gemma & Ian were married at Holy Trinity Church Skipton Before their reception at The Craiglands Hotel Ilkley.

I had first met Gemma & Ian at a wedding fair before going to see them at their house. It was during this meeting that we first discussed the tarn behind the hotel and how great it would be to go there for some bridal portraits. I will never forget Gemma saying “unless it’s absolutely tipping it down we ARE going up there!!!” I love these sort of couples who put importance on making time for photographs and put some thought into the things they like and want.

After a really hard week doing jury duty, it was a delight to photograph such a fantastic couple and Gemma did look absolutely stunning.

After church, we took a quick detour to the Cow & Calf rocks for some pictures before rushing back to The Craiglands, then up to the tarn.

As I’m still on jury duty this week you can only have a quick unedited snap that was taken on my iPhone, for the moment 🙂
