Lucy and Stephen wedding
Any wedding day that starts off with a brew and a bacon sandwich is always going to be a good one. That’s what greeted me when I arrived at Lucy’s parent’s house in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Lucy was very excited and looking forward to the day I spent the morning with team bride, however Steve the groom turned up outside wearing a chauffer’s hat. I love wedding mornings, each and every one of them is different and something unusual always happens. This time I ended up searching for the Mother of the Brides hat which is a first.
The wedding ceremony was held at St Thomas a Beckett’s church in the village of Hampsthwaite where I briefly met up with the boys outside the Joiners Arms pub. The church was very beautiful and I got my talk from the vicar who told me I was only allowed to photograph the wedding from the back of the church. Steve the groom was a little nervous and just wanted things to run to time, I went outside to greet the bride (who arrived on time) however, half of the guests were still AWOL because the vintage bus had got a little lost and arrived a wee bit late. Finally the bus arrived and everyone was in good spirits. The ceremony went without a hitch.
After the ceremony, everyone chucked confetti at the bride and groom (Steve the groom had a funny confetti face) then headed over to The Priory Cottages wedding venue. People drank, ate lovely food and generally Had a good time. The speeches were very funny including some North/South divide jokes and an hilarious picture of the bride and groom travelling up on the motorway.
The evening entertainment was provided by Johnny Ross Band who did a fabulous job getting everyone on the dance floor. I saw some fabulous dance moves including one dance where someone chucked the bride around like she was on strictly.
Everyone had a fabulous time congratulations Lucy and Steve.
Here’s a few of my favourite pictures from their wedding day at Priory Cottages.
