Paul and I were excited to head up to West Yorkshire for Dawn and Rich’s wedding in Wood Hall Hotel in Wetherby, the weather was gorgeous and the drive down to the hotel was spectacular.
Dawn and her bridesmaids were chilling out in the Spruce room with champagne and last minute sandwiches when I arrived, there was plenty of time for the essential shoe shots while Dawn had her toenails painted by her sister. Dawn looked gorgeous in her dress and brought a tear to everyone’s eye including her proud mum.
The ceremony room looked spectacular with stunning chair sashes and lovely floral displays including my favourite flower, the Ranunculus. Much hilarity ensued downstairs when Rich had to dash out just before the ceremony to answer the call of nature – it’s normally the bride who is late!
After the ceremony the happily married couple gathered outside in the beautiful gardens for some Pimms, luckily the weather held out just in time for us to finish the group photos. Paul and I dusted down our white wedding brollies and Dawn and Rich were brave enough to venture out into the rain for some shots on their own. It was then time for the reception, the speeches were fantastic and included the best man showing some embarrassing photos of Rich with some suspect hairstyles!
The tower of cupcakes looked delicious, and the happy couple sampled the top tier in true American tradition by feeding each other a bite. The evening party kicked off in style with a fantastic DJ team whose light display was extremely impressive, the first dance was to Beyonce’s “Halo”.
Congratulations to Dawn and Rich and we wish you happiness and luck for the future xx
