Country Weddings

{& engagements} by Annemarie King


Simple, uncluttered images with a sense of light, colour, environment, emotion. I love big skies, whether stormycloud-grey or ‘lonely as a cloud’ bright blue and sunny... My pictures show my couples experiencing their day with laughter and joy. Sometimes, my pictures show a quiet or contemplative romantic moment. Influenced by the english countryside and the ever changing light and colours, I use nature, wide sweeping views and fine detail to show the unique environment of the wedding and the couple within. Documenting the day, yes, but also using a fine art approach to create a cohesive collection of images ready for binding in leather and treasuring forever.


HI! I’M ANNEMARIE ABOUT ME: I love...Posh Coffee, my husband, I love star shapes and heart shapes, my favourite place is the beach at Holkham, I love classic brown scrapbooks, peeling paint backdrops, my dogs Boo and Patch, my cowboy boots and ... photography! MY WORK: I specialise in country weddings and engagements I like teepee weddings with lanterns and home made potted jam. I like marquee weddings at home and village hall weddings with bunting and rustic weddings in a barn with gingham napkins I love shooting pictures in the first bloom of spring, with the yellow fields of oil seed rape, through to the golden wheat fields and finally harvest time and the fruit and berries.


ENGAGEMENT SHOOT Engagement shoots are a lot of fun. I love to get to know all my wedding couples, therefore I offer a complimentary engagement session. Usually lasting one to two hours they take place within a short drive of the studio at Bishopthorpe. I can travel to special locations on request (a small travel charge will apply). A styled engagement shoot is fun! We can look at clothes, colours, props such as picnic blankets, pets, funky shoes etc. You do not have to be a wedding client to book an engagement shoot with me. My fee for the shoot is ÂŁ75 with print prices from as little as ÂŁ12!


YOUR WEDDING DAY As your day begins and hair and make up near completion I arrive to shoot beautiful detail shots, the preparations, the emotion of your family as they see the bride for the first time and the fun with the bridesmaids. Leaving for the ceremony before the bride in order to get shots of the groom best man and ushers, I am there to capture arrival of bride and father. Important moments during the ceremony, confetti and guests congratulating you, family pictures, more details, your place of reception and some of my famous fashion style romantic and sometimes quirky images of bride and groom will be taken before leaving you to enjoy your wedding breakfast. The reception, the fun of the speeches, the cake cutting, more bride and groom pictures as the sun goes down, the romance of the first dance can be captured too for a little extra.


WHAT’S INCLUDED? Photography from bride getting ready until wedding breakfast Included in your package is a 20 side book or album of your choice. The book is designed as a concept album for your approval at an album planning meeting to ensure all your favourites are included. Extra album sides can also be purchased. An onlne gallery is part of your package and some personalised mini cards for your wedding reception bearing your password. PACKAGE PRICE £1700 EXTRA’S: A printable disc of all images is also available for £595 Extra album sides: £60 each Extra hour of photography £75


MODERN ALBUMS I like books and albums. I think a collection of printed images looks fabulous. When designed together, story by story, on double page spreads in a book or album, a collection of images can tell the story of each part of your day as it unfolded in a far more interesting way than looking at a single image in isolation on a screen. I offer the fabulous Folio Albums. More like a book than album. Your images are printed onto bright white fine art watercolour paper which gives your images a wonderful vibrancy and clarity. Hand bound and encased in fine, natural leather, they open out flat with an almost invisible crease, so each image is on full view. Handcrafted right here in Yorkshire too! In my global search for the very best for my clients I also offer albums from top album manufacturer, Albums Australia. Each album is bespoke and handcrafted.


FAQ’S What’s your style of photography? I shoot natural, relaxed,pictures: lots of shots of the little details like buttonholes, flowers, cars, rings, I love fun signs and interesting cropping, vintage washes on prints and sloppy vintage borders. I like to shoot some quirky and unusual images that show the style of your day. I am known for my dramatic photographs of my couples - the ones you see on my site with the big skies, the quirky back grounds, the amazing views, the romance! Most people also like a limited number of photographs of close family. What kind of albums do you offer? I have gorgeous magazine style albums, hard back books and classic photograph albums. How long until we can see our images? Your images will go live on my site the week after your wedding. Are you insured? yes


FAQ’S Are you qualified? I am a qualified member of the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography) and a member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers). Do you only shoot weddings? Yep! I am a wedding specialist nowadays because photographing weddings is what I love to do!! After 19 years I reckon I have shot approaching 1000 weddings. How many weddings do you photograph? I shoot a limited number of around 35-40 commisions a year so I can personally look after every one of my couples and give the very best. How close to York are you? About 2 miles south of York city centre.

How do we book? simply fill out a booking form and return with your retainer for ÂŁ500. We can meet up at this point or nearer to the wedding if you choose.
