Ahhh what can I say about Sara, Paul, Edit and bump…. I first met them when they enquired about their wedding photography and we all wandered around the park last Autumn for some family photographs (after which Edie named me ‘Sally from the forest’, which I just loved..). Sara sent me an email quite soon afterwards asking me to change the date to an entire year later as she was expecting number two, which has turned out to be a little sister for Edie!
I met up with them all in their colourful family home for some photographs of them all at this stage.. imminently awaiting the wonderful chaos that will be their new addition.
I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to be part of their story..
Gemma and Richard’s wedding was doubly special.. not only did they tie the knot but they did it at such a special point in their lives.. their son was there and part of the day too. It was such a wonderfully relaxed, sunny day.. absolutely perfect. Here is a little preview..All rights reserved. Copyright Sally T Photography.
Laura and I have been emailing back and forth for months about wedding plans and ideas and it was fab to finally get a chance to meet her and David for an engagement shoot with their dog Wazzle. We headed up to Whorlton Castle in North Yorkshire to grab some photographs of them both together.. The light and the weather was just perfect, and they were both so relaxed and happy together that it made the time I spent with them doing portraits all the more special. Here is Laura & David’s engagement shoot..
When Katy of What Katy Did Next got in touch to see if I’d be interested in doing a retro shoot for Thimble & Bobbin’s homewares range I don’t think I even hesitated. Katy’s wonderful styling has been the driving force behind all out past shoots, and I knew she’d do a sterling job organising another shoot for Lauren’s gorgeously crafted bits and bobs.
Here is a sneak peek from the day…. Hope you liiiiike!

Today I was asked to take photographs for a second shoot with Contemporary Kiltz, I was thrilled to be part of it. Clare has been making ‘kiltz’ for years, and really has a unique product in that they are made with the best quality traditional tartan, but has put a spin on the design adding a modern waistband and showing how they can be dressed up with everything from denim jackets to Aran knits.
We all met up at a family friend’s house in the village I grew up in (you could very nearly see my parents’ house from the garden) and I was gobsmacked at just how amazing a location it was! I had complete house envy, especially when I spotted so much amazing original artwork covering the walls and a fully stocked bar in the billiard room! We made good use of the space as best we could, later taking a few shots to send off to an agency for location shooting. I turned down a bowl of soup and homemade bread to later find out that the family owned a catering business who have worked for gigs from T in the Park to Jay Z to Elton John.. Doh!
Here is a small preview, and big thanks to Clare & Gillian for having me again!
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to just forget about everything and ‘head for the hills’ more often, and on one bright cold Sunday we decided to throw work to one side, went to see my Grandpa, for a pub lunch and went for a little walk behind the house I lived in up to the age of 4, deep in North Yorkshire.
We couldn’t walk too far (Vivi only has little legs and they get tired easily!), so we went to the slate hills at the top of the path where there are millions of rabbit warrens, and we looked for Peter Rabbit and the Flopsy Bunnies. Here are a few pics from the day, my little family and I loved it, and we’ll definitely be doing it again when we can!
PS. The one of me and V is taken by David (obviously!) ignore my messy hair.. it was Sunday after all!
Dawn and Fraser decided to have a very English wedding.. with a tigers and tartan theme! The ceremony and reception were held at Danby Castle, which is an absolutely stunning venue with view of the best of North Yorkshire, and although it rained all day (apart from about half an hour for photographs!) the atmosphere of the day really made it special. Here are a few favourites from their day, I loved all the little details including mismatched crockery for centrepieces, bunting, tigers and the fact that Dawn and her bridesmaids arrived by tractor!
