York Marquee Wedding
Sophie & Nathan’s wedding in York was on one of the most glorious Saturdays we’ve had this year. The perfect day for a marquee wedding. The couple booked us after a recommendation from a family friend whose wedding we’d shot a few years before. Its always nice for us to shoot weddings based on recommendation, as we usually get to see the couple who recommended us too.
The wedding started at her family home for Sophie, getting ready with the amazing Julie Mercer on expert Make up duty. We got to see the floral artists incredibly talented Fiona Hogg and Miranda and team setting up the marquee (they did the flowers for our wedding too). Zoe went off to see the boys at nearby Middlethorpe Hall before making their way to the ceremony location Merchant Adventurers Hall. After the service and family photos in the gardens of the hall. We all got back to the Marquee to be received by a confetti line to walk though accompanied by the sounds of bagpipes.
We enjoyed a short 20 mins with Sophie and Nathan where they had their first date. Sophies email to us after the day had passed said everything about how important we feel this time is. “It’s funny I thought I’d hate the couple photography session but it turns out it was actually my favourite part of the day as it gave us some time to digest what had happened before we met all our guests”
After the photos the couple enjoyed their speeches and meal by The Yorkshire Party Company and they were lucky to have the marquee sides up all day in their James Dabbs Marquee, something that sadly doesn’t happen often enough at weddings in this country. The day was expertly co-ordinated and delivered all on time by Helen Davies. They enjoyed their stunning cake by our personal all time favourite cake lady Poppy Pickering. We left them dancing the night away with their friends and family and wish them all the love and luck in the world.
