Highlights from Ros & Nick’s village Marquee wedding in North Yorkshire

 

Marquee Wedding in York

Ros and Nick hired me for their summer Marquee Wedding outside York. I love North Yorkshire and jumped at the chance to be part of their big day. They were to be married in Aldborough, a small village just North of York itself. Nick grew up there, and both he and Ros wanted to go back to the village for a summer marquee wedding. How could I say no to this? Ros and Nick were guests at a recent Tipi wedding in North Lancashire. They had seen me in action, and the results and promptly booked me for their Marquee Wedding in North Yorkshire. A proper village wedding this was planned to be…lets just hope the weather was going to play ball…

A Very Village Wedding

Ros and Nick were getting ready about 100m apart on a farm and some beautiful converted stables. I spent a short time with Ros and the girls, then on schedule, scooted down the road to catch up with Nick and the lads – who were already dressed and raring to go! So…time for a few formal photos outside the farmhouse, and they were released to The Ship Inn for a pre-ceremony beer. Nick informed me that his parents used to be Licensees many moons back…

Typical British Summer Weather

As their one o’clock ceremony beckoned, so did the clouds. A Typical British Summer’s Day was promising to be spoilt slightly by the (Typical) British Rain! This Marquee Wedding York was about to run on a slight Plan B. Plan A was to have post-ceremony drinks on the village green…but, alas that plan was axed pretty quickly.

Summer Bunting Galore

Ros’ mum, together with several helpers had created and sewn around 250m of summer bunting for the wedding. I loved how they’d dressed the path to the church, both for the bride’s entrance, plus the confetti throwing afterwards. A stunning, hand-made touch to the day. I actually never got tired of photographing the effect with different lenses whilst waiting for the guests to arrive…

Traditional Church Ceremony

The church was literally across the street from the Ship Inn, and 200m as the crow flies from ‘Ros HQ’. Using dad’s car, the bridesmaids arrived first for the traditional church ceremony – the first part of this Marquee Wedding In York. Ros was soon behind them, looking every bit as excited as any bride could be on their wedding day. What rain?

Village Wedding Celebrations

After church, the Plan B kicked in, with a temporary bar setup for a free drink for all the wedding guests as they left church. The rain was coming down as mild drizzle, but we didn’t care. Ros & Nick didn’t care either…and I don’t think the weather impeded the photography in any way either! This Marquee Wedding In York was now into stage two. Confetti time, and chance to use that stunning bunting again. As we finished, the guests made their way another 200m or so into a secret walled garden in Aldborough Manor. The newlyweds and I walked too, stopping every so often for a few couple portraits. Ros’ dress was getting a bit muddy, but she didn’t care. It was only later that I found from her father’s speech that she is actually a Quantity Surveyor and loves mud and dirt!

A Marquee Wedding In Summer

With the rain coming down, we had to photograph a few family group photos inside the marquee, whilst the guests mingled around us, to the sounds of a stunning string quartet to our right. There was a respite in the rain later though, so the guests could get out to play crazy golf and badminton…more excuses for Ros to get muddy… 😉 After the brilliant speeches, the band arrived to set up. A brilliant Soul band, who Ros knew and had travelled up from near Taunton.
