St Peters Chapel, York and Skipwith Hall on Escrick Park Estate
We’d been looking forward to shooting Carly & Rory’s summer wedding since the moment we met them. We’d been lucky to have been introduced through their wedding planner Sue at White Wedding & Event Company, and we just knew their wedding was going to be amazing from the start. Both Carly and Rory have infectiously lovely personalities, the kind of people you just WANT to be around, and that shone in spades on their wedding day. The wedding itself was held in one of our very favourite of venues – St Peters School Chapel, York (Rory was an old boy there)
After the service we drove to Skipwith Hall on the Escrick Estate for the reception – if you’ve been lucky to have visited Skipwith Hall you’ll know just how beautiful the gardens are! The guests enjoyed drinks, canapés and photos on the lawn, accompanied by a jazz trio, then walked though the kitchen garden paths to a marquee tunnel that opened up into the most beautiful white marquee filled with floral arrangements from Lucy MacNicholl and a statement cake from Poppy Pickering. Throughout the whole planning process, and on the day and evening, Sue managed all the suppliers, timings and every tiny detail, especially when it decided to rain and all 220 guests had to rush into the marquee! As Carly and Rory were living in Dubai before the wedding it was huge help to everybody to have such a fantastic planner and meant everybody involved, plus of course the bride and groom and family, were super relaxed and stress free before and on the day.
The evening finished with the most amazing band from London and incredible sound and lighting provided by AV Matrix.
