Yorkshire Wedding Photographer
Hi & Welcome to Mark J. Hillyer Photography. I’m a Yorkshire wedding photographer, living between Leeds & York.
I shoot weddings all over Yorkshire. From Thirsk and the moors down to Sheffield and from Hull, right across to the Dales. I’m also lucky enough to work all over the rest of the country too. I love to see new places and I love meeting new people and hearing their story & what connects them as a couple. It’s fantastic to be doing what I love, how I love doing it, by looking for the natural & real moments that happen throughout your big day and capturing them authentically, to tell your story as it happens.
To me, your wedding day is just that, a whole day. I don’t want to miss anything. I’m there from the first thing in the morning, with a mug of coffee. I leave with the last of the revellers at the end of the night.
The secret is that it’s more than a job to me, I love doing it. Why would I leave earlier? You can find out more about how I work on the My Style page
It’s all about telling the story…
Please explore my site, have a look at the portfolios & read a few of the blog posts. It’s been a busy summer for me and I’m only just starting to catch up on featuring some of the weddings that I’ve been lucky enough to photograph. The latest weddings on the blog are Jen & Tom’s fantastic wedding / music festival in Headingley, Janice & Shane and a stunning amount of Cherry Blossom at Hazlewood Castle near York and Nicola & Andy’s uber-relaxed Barn Wedding at Oakwell Hall in Leeds. Definitely a bit of something for everyone and not just in Yorkshire. You can have a look at those by clicking on the ‘Most Recent Blog Posts’ link below.
I love photography of all kinds, so there’s quite a few posts on the blog that are about my personal work too. If you want to get in touch with me, I’d love to hear your story.
“The photos are epic!!! You just really captured the day. I’m so grateful you captured all those little touches I’d spent so long planning and then didn’t actually see on the day itself!!
Having looked at them from the start, you tell the story of the day so well. I feel like I saw the wedding day for the first time just now ! There is such artistry and beauty in the photos. That’s why I chose you to start with and you completely proved me right! Absolutely love them!!!!! They’re not just wedding photos. They are memories.”

“My husband and I cannot recommend Mark enough! We have just received our wedding photographs and he captured every single moment from start to finish with such an attention to detail.”
– Katie & Sam, Wetherby –
“His eye for the perfect shot is utterly phenomenal and he managed to capture so many tiny moments throughout our wedding day. He helped to make everyone feel so relaxed, but also managed to disappear into the background at other points and reemerge with the most wonderful and natural photographs.”
– Laura & Oliver, York –
“All of our guests commented on how fantastic he was on the day, and how they barely noticed he was there. He’s really captured all of the emotions felt on the day, and I couldn’t ask him for anything else!”
