Wedding de Yorkshire! Sarah & Joe’s York Hospitium Wedding

4th May 2015

Hospitium-Wedding-Photography-CoverSo apprently there was a bike race on in York on Saturday. Tour de something. Thinking about it a whole host of people on bicycles did whizz past at some point. But all that was only a slight distraction from what was by far the main event of the day: Sarah & Joe got married in a stunning York Hospitium wedding! What’s more, we were lucky enough to capture it all for them.

Seriously, the Tour de Yorkshire had caused a few logistical headaches – particulary for Sarah and her bridal party who were getting ready at York’s Hotel du Vin before heading to the Hospitium for the wedding ceremony. The race stewards were fantastic though and made sure that we all got there with plenty of time to spare. Caroline and the boys meanwhile had a much more relaxed and road closure-free time down at the Hospitium and then over a few drinks at The Star Inn The City.

Sarah’s creative flair is all over this wedding. From the swallow design stationary to the cakes and even the dress. Also look out for the most wonderful flowers from Fiona Hogg Floral Design. Dress by House of Mooshki.


Sarah & the bridesmaids had been at the hairdressers and were walking back up to the hotel just as one of the first races of the day came past.

And so to the ceremony between the pillars of one of York’s most beautiful buildings. It was very moving. Surrounded by a forest of garden flowers, Sarah & Joe read wonderful vows to each other, full of thought, wit and love, and the announcement of their marriage was met with thunderous applause.  A couple of drinks and literally hundreds of congratulatory hugs and kisses later, we hit the Museum Gardens and the riverside for some bride and groom photos. We love photographing newly married couples out in public. People just stop in their tracks with big silly smiles on their faces. Check out the tourists below whose selfie with Sarah & Joe was clearly the highlight of their day!

More of Sarah’s creative flair could be witnessed upstairs in the wedding breakfast room, including home made cupcake favours and swallow-themed bunting.

Dinner and four excellent speeches were followed by the start of the evening reception and a bit of Smashing Pumpkins first dance action.

We had a ball. Love, congratulations and thanks to Sarah & Joe. We hope you have a honeymoon as unforgettable as your wedding day!
