A French style wedding in Yorkshire

This was a truly wonderful wedding and like a dream-come-true for everyone, including me: A combination of French style and ambience, with proper Yorkshire countryside and lovely lovely people. Emily and Owen have lived in Paris for five years and wanted to bring their love of France to their wedding at Emily’s parents’ home in Nafferton in East Yorkshire. Not only did they achieve this with incredible aplomb with more fantastic details than I’ve ever seen, Emily designed and made her own exceptionally beautiful dress (she’s a talented fashion designer). She topped it off with a yellow cardi. Utterly perfect. The couple spent the day having such a wonderful time together and with their families and friends and were so lovely and happy it was an absolute joy to photograph them. I was delighted with their cunning plan to get back to the reception early and go for a photography adventure before anyone realised they were there. They were fantastic sports, donning wellies to tramp through the (amazing) gardens to get to the pond, having a cosy moment in the honeymoon tent they were bravely camping in later, climbing over a style to get to where the vintage MG was hidden then ‘arriving’ (again – nobody knew) in style. The marquee from Shades of India was spectacular and like everything you could see, adorned with bunting handmade by Emily and her mum. Torrential rain was forecast but it magically held off and even if it had rained, every detail had been so taken care of, it really wouldn’t have mattered. The day was topped off by some fantastic speeches from the four best men, followed by a ceilidh in the barn. I was totally spoilt for choice but here’s my selection of favourites from the day.
