Lisa & David's first dance at the York Maze
June 6, 2012

Lisa & David Hannant’s York Maze wedding, York, 2012

Saturday 2nd June 2012 we joined the lovely Lisa & Dave to capture their wedding day at the awesome York Maze near Elvington. The good old British weather was looking a bit sketchy but luckily the rain held off all day!
York Maze is a fantastic venue situated just outside the city centre.
Its amazing barns and open terrace were laced with bunting and handmade décor made by the guys themselves! They had a vintage sweet table by Florence Wren and two barrels of York minster Ale for the guests to help themselves to. The maze also has an adventure playground and giant bouncy pillow for entertaining the guests which made for some interesting “bouncy” group shots. The evening do kicked off with a hog roast and good old knees up on the dance floor. A real fantastic wedding with a great couple and awsome guests.

We’d recommend a York Maze wedding to anyone or even just a day trip, the kids will love it.

After some tasty food, it was speeches time. The best man, Dave’s brother Steve had everyone in bits laughing.

Then it was first dance time. We always light up a flash to shoot into, creates a great first dance photo. With two of us we can shoot without flash as well, getting some natural light photos. It’s a nice mix that work well together.

 

As always, when possible we try to create a slideshow of the day for evening guests, plus the bride and groom can see what each other got up to in the morning. When we get home we top it up with a few extras and pop it online for guests to see. Check it out below to get a feel for how the day flows
