It was such a huge pleasure to capture Rachel & David’s beautiful day as a Yorkshire wedding photographer at Markington Hall!
Set in the beautiful Knaresborough area of North Yorkshire, this rainy day started with the ceremony at St. Joseph’s Church in Bishop Thornton. The bride’s mother Bridget created the lovely flowers arrangements for the church. I’m sure those present will never forget the comedic value provided by the priest throughout the ceremony, including the blessing of the couple using his Manchester United scarf!
I can honestly say that Rachel’s dress was my favorite brides dress I’ve seen to date! I can’t help fall a little bit in love with these kinds of wedding details and being a lass ‘n’ all you can hardly blame me. Rachel looked like a stunning medieval princess in her Jenny Packham dress, I swear it made hearts pop out of my eyes!
Guests were ferried to the reception venue of Markington Hall in a London Routemaster bus while the Rachel and David travelled in a classic white Bentley car.
Set in the grounds of Markington Hall is the Copper Beech Glade glamping area, with beautiful wooded glade filled with vintage gypsy caravans. The reception took place in a marquee beautifully decorated with rustic floral displays by Kirsty North. The bride adding her own touches with homemade hanging floral hoops, napkins hand embroidered for each guest with their initials and baking her own wedding cake.
The rain showers did not manage to dampen the high spirits of the day and eventually things dried up enough for people to enjoy this wonderful outdoor space. Children chased chickens, marshmallows were toasted around the campfire, copious amounts of cheese and bubbles were consumed and everyone danced the night away and had a splendid time!
Huge congratulations to the lovely Rachel and David!
Here’s wishing you many years of happiness together xx
