Jude & Mark | Danby Castle wedding | North Yorkshire, England

Before I start gushing, let me say a huge thank you to the amazing Kari Bellamy, who let me tag along at Jude and Mark’s wedding. If you’re a long-time follower of the blog, you might recall that I spent a good month in England and Belgium last year. As luck would have it, Kari needed a second photographer in that timeframe for a wedding in Yorkshire. In a castle. With an incredible couple. With a vintage tea party theme. Are you excited yet? Oh my god, this wedding. Also, it was in the English countryside and the heather was in bloom. Seriously, guys, this wedding.

These are the kinds of venues wedding photographers get to work in England. This is Danby Castle, in North Yorkshire. It’s the place where Catherine Parr moved after Henry VIII died. No, really.

Belgium is the best country. Period.

Before I launch into travel tales, let me say that I am back!  We got in last night and are playing some serious catch-up in terms of laundry and household stuffs, including eating things that aren’t espresso, waffles, pastries and beer.  I’m also doing some serious inbox management (yes, I will respond to you!) but first I wanted to get these images up so I can make room for more wedding stuff.  Yay, wedding stuff!  It’s really good to be back.  The trip was excellent but very long and it’s good to be at home, where I feel I can think straight.

If you haven’t been following along, here are updates one, two and three.  And now…

Not gonna lie, London is awesome.

It is.  It really is.

Yeoman Warder at the Tower of London.  This dude was really great at tour-giving.

Hee hee.

Lloyd’s of London.  I don’t know what they do, but their building is really cool – lots of exposed ductwork and clear elevators on the outside of the building that shoot up to 30 stories or whatever that is.

I seem to have a thing for English doorways.

Inside the Tate Modern.  It wasn’t as bright and poppy as other modern art museums I’ve been to.  Actually, I loved the hell out of the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, so Tate Modern had little chance of impressing me.

Standing on both sides of the prime meridian.  Yeah, I do believe I’ve mentioned my dorkitude in the past.
