The Hallmark Hotel

It is the beginning of the wedding season and the team and myself  are feeling fully charged and excited to be covering weddings in Hull, East Yorkshire and beyond in 2017. The Hallmark Hotel is a cracking venue which is situated in North Ferriby and was the location for our first shoot of the spring. A 17-acre estate, landscaped and with extraordinary views of the Humber Bridge and Estuary, this is a great location.

The wedding day

Rob and Michelle ware a lovely relaxed couple , when Michelle walked down the isle she had a beautiful radiant smile on her face. Initially Rob looked apprehensive but this was soon blown away the minute he glanced at Michelle walking towards him. The weather was beautiful a clear blue sky with not a cloud in sight (offering a few challenges as any professional wedding photographer would know). When I shoot weddings with my team I like to use a mixture of natural light and off-camera diffused flash which works very well when you are up against the power of the Sun. The team of Andrew Welford Photography consists of my son, Lee who has worked with me since 2009 and my wife Tracy who has been an integral part of the team since 2010. Both Lee and Tracy excel not only in supporting me but also in getting some great shots of their own which otherwise would of been lost.
