Vanessa & Andy’s wedding at East Riddlesden Hall was another amazing highlight of the year. We met Andy in the centre of Harrogate getting a wet shave with his groomsmen in the morning. We’re in love with Andy’s bespoke suit and shotgun shell buttonhole flower arrangements. These special details already hinted at an utterly bespoke wedding. Meanwhile, Vanessa was preparing with her bridesmaids just outside of Skipton amongst some stunning rural scenery. Her elegant dress was customised with beautiful lace throughout.
An Aston Martin whisked Vanessa to Christ Church on The Stray in Harrogate, just steps away from Vanessa & Andy’s home. It’s a beautifully lit and handsomely sized church which we’d love to come back to!
As a vintage bus made it’s way to East Riddlesden with the guests, we took the opportunity to take Vanessa & Andy away for some quiet portraits in the allotment and around the rustic barns of East Riddlesden Hall. We love their portraits! They’re so natural and fun, and Vanessa & Andy’s enthusiasm and relaxed attitude to the day really shines through. We even made time to shoot a roll of Medium Format Film through our Rolleiflex camera (they’re the crisp square photos if you’re looking for them!).
Everybody enjoyed drinks in the grounds before heading in for speeches and an excellent BBQ. Vanessa & Andy enlisted entertainment in the form of a make-you-own cocktail bar complete with a creation by both Vanessa & Andy – which reminds us, we’ll have to make one for ourselves! The guests enjoyed partying hard into the night to some excellent tunes and we can honestly say, the day couldn’t have gone better – it was amazing!
