On Ilkley Moor with Caitlin + Jones

On Ilkley Moor with Caitlin + Jones

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you're getting spoilt by your loved one and spending some quality time together to celebrate all things lovely.

Today we're sharing this beautiful winter love shoot from the very talented Caitlin + Jones. Caitlin + Jones are a married team combining talented photography and videography. Based in Yorkshire, their style of photography is adventurous, breathtaking and real. A talented match made in heaven! 

Sometimes you don't always get the dream photos from your wedding day, and this shoot is proof that all will be fine because there are opportunities after your wedding day to keep celebrating your love for each other. Dig out your wedding dress again, you know you've been dying to and book an anniversary shoot to get the wild, carefree photos you've always longed for.  

Sasha and Ben have been married for a couple of years. This winter, they were whisked away to the Cow and Calf, Ilkley for a dramatic, winter photo shoot. These breath-taking images of them together in their wedding attire are stunning, wild and heart felt. 

"Sasha was prepared with long-johns on and walking boots. The weather really did test us, strong wind, hail, heavy rain. But these two were just amazing the whole time, they loved it and embraced the elements. I hope you enjoy looking through these beautiful images, we are super proud of them!"

I don't know about you but I can't read about Ilkley Moor and not sing the classic Yorkshire Rhyme in my head. So here it is! Good luck understanding the Yorkshire dialect version! 

Yorkshire dialect

Wheear 'ast tha bin sin' ah saw thee, ah saw thee?On Ilkla Mooar baht 'at
Wheear 'ast tha bin sin' ah saw thee, ah saw thee?
Wheear 'ast tha bin sin' ah saw thee?
On Ilkla Mooar baht 'at
On Ilkla Mooar baht 'at
On Ilkla Mooar baht 'at
Tha's been a cooartin' Mary Jane
Tha's bahn' to catch thy deeath o' cowd
Then us'll ha' to bury thee
Then t'worms'll come an' eyt thee oop
Then t'ducks'll come an' eyt up t'worms
Then us'll go an' eyt up t'ducks
Then us'll all ha' etten thee
That's wheear we get us ooan back

Where have you been since I saw you, I saw you?
On Ilkley Moor without a hat
Where have you been since I saw you, I saw you?
Where have you been since I saw you?
On Ilkley Moor without a hat
On Ilkley Moor without a hat
On Ilkley Moor without a hat
You've been courting Mary Jane
You're going to catch your death of cold
Then we will have to bury you
Then the worms will come and eat you up
Then the ducks will come and eat up the worms
Then we will go and eat up the ducks
Then we will all have eaten you
That's where we get our own back

 

Thank you Caitlin + Jones for wrapping us up in a blanket of love in the chilly Yorkshire air.
