A Humanist Wedding in the Woods |

It’s not easy, even in this day and age, to plan a wedding that you’re going to enjoy and that reflects you as individuals and as a couple. But when you have the vision and belief, you can create the most incredible occasion. Here are just a few images from Bobbi and Tim’s Humanist Wedding in the Woods.

Humanist Wedding Photography

Bobbi and Tim had their Wedding in Stubb Wood on Manor Farm in a little place called Acaster Malbis which is a few miles south of York. It was a Humanist wedding which was ministered by Tim’s Dad. Bobbi and her bridesmaids got ready at home in the centre of York and Tim arrived early at the woods to check everything was ready to go. So many people had put a lot into making the site what it was, with so many personal touches.

After the wedding Bobbi, Tim and their guests enjoyed the sunshine and the freedom of the great outdoors before the wedding breakfast in the PapaKata Tipi. There were speeches, laughter, smores, cake, pizza, bubbles and a great band called $kint who got people up and dancing from the off.

A Photographers point of view

This wedding was great to photograph for many reasons. The main one being that it was different and interesting. There was a sense of freedom from the usual wedding traditions and a very personal and informal format to the day. There was so much that reflected the couple as individuals as well as the years they had spent together before the wedding. For me this kind of thing helps to tell the story of the wedding, but also of the people involved. I wanted to create images that captured the essence of the day in such a way that the couple could remember it exactly as it was.

What a great set! Who would think to get that low down whilst the groom waits for his bride in the aisle. That sunflare!
