An African wedding near Harrogate

Welcome to the most joyous wedding of the year.

If you’d have been wandering through Braisty Woods near Harrogate last week, you’d have come across something rather unexpected. It wasn’t simply the fact that there was an outdoor wedding in progress – with a grand marquee dominating a field beyond the treeline.

It was the fact that this was an African wedding – with gold and purple the dominant colours, shining beneath a warm summer sun. The ceremony was a standard civil one, followed by a traditional African, the dancing was exuberant, the engrossment (and involvement) of the guests total, and the mood utterly joyous.

As a Lancashire wedding photographer (yes, I was interloping over the Yorkshire border in this case), I see lots of weddings and they are all joyous occasions, but I struggle to remember one which wore its happiness quite so openly. It really made it a pleasure to shoot.

So I’m grateful to Hazel, Saratu’s wedding planner for getting me involved in one of the most visually inspiring weddings I’ve attended. And given the success of the day, I can certainly recommend her:
