I loved every minute of Laren & Matthew’s wedding at Raithwaite Hall. What a joy and pleasure it was to capture their day. Beautiful venue situated on the coast and surrounded by lovely people.

Lauren & Matthew said before the wedding “Do your own thing, we love your informal style” which is music to my ears. It means they get to spend time with family and friends, I get to shoot in the style I love, capturing the atmosphere and moments throughout the day. Off course we did the group pictures but kept it as informal and relaxed as possible. Thankfully, we only just had the weather on our side. The ceremony was to take place in the stunning grounds and this gave me the freedom to capture the ceremony from every angle.

Raithwaite Hall, if you don’t know is a stones throw from the beach. Perfect for a few relaxed informal pictures and a great backdrop of Whitby.

Have a peep through the pictures. I enjoyed it and i’m sure you’ll agree everyone else did..


“Gary, he makes you feel at ease and comfortable, like he was our family friend!
