We photographed just six weddings in 2020 (thanks Covid!) but three of those were intimate weddings at The Priests House in Barden. It’s become one of our favourite venues in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. It has such a huge appeal for couples. With the Barden Tower ruins, views of the Yorkshire Dales, the stunning Old Chapel for ceremonies and receptions, and a great team working for you, you can easily have a perfect day. It’s also an ideal venue for smaller weddings which we’ve been seeing a lot more of this past year or so.
Rae and Damian unfortunately had to cancel their original plans for a wedding abroad. So with just a few weeks to go, they decided to get married here in September. They quickly found and fell in love with The Priests House. With 13 guests, and Covid restrictions still in place, they chose one of our shorter coverage packages. These are ideal if you don’t want (or can’t have!) full day coverage. We can still capture any elements of the day you’d like. On this occasion, that was covering guests arriving, the ceremony, drinks afterwards, plus a few family photos and of course, a couple’s session.
What did Rae and Damian say about us?
“From start to finish Heather and Colin were amazing! Heather was so quick to answer all my emails and the Skype call before the wedding made us feel so comfortable and confident that everything was taken care of. The pictures on the day went so smoothly and we’ve had SO many compliments on how beautiful they are. We couldn’t have asked for more professional and talented photographers, so a massive thank you to Heather and Colin from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our special day. From start to finish, it was a pleasure and your attention to detail is astounding. 100% would recommend to anybody who wants the most perfect natural photos along with the two most lovely photographers!”
We couldn’t have asked for a lovelier couple to end our (short but sweet) 2020 wedding season with. I only wish they had brought along their sausage dog, Hector, to make my day even more. (As you may know we have our own dachshund, Archie, and I’m obsessed with them!!)
We’ll be back for another intimate wedding celebration at The Priests House next month. It’ll be the first of a few visits there for us this year–we can’t wait!
