Have you ever thought about asking your dog to be a guest at your wedding?

Whether you dream of your dog walking down the aisle in the cutest of bow ties befitting for the occasion or couldn’t imagine your couple portraits without your furry companion nestled in between you as a party of three, as The Phodographer, I’m the girl to capture this special connection on your wedding day.

More and more couples are now choosing to include their pooches in their special day, some having a starring role as members of their wedding party or being included in the family pictures and I have to say – I love it!

The Black Swan Hotel at Helmsley in beautiful rural North Yorkshire is super dog friendly and makes a point of making sure ALL their guests receive a warm Yorkshire welcome. This shoot was a collaboration with some wonderful Yorkshire wedding suppliers and hopefully gives a glimpse into what a lovely venue the hotel can be for your wedding.
