Emily and Amman’s Allerton Castle Wedding Photography
31st May 2016
This was our first visit to an Allerton Castle wedding, a magnificent gothic stately home just north of York, and it was for the celebration of Emily & Amman’s wedding. We met Emily & Amman originally as friends of previous clients and we were delighted when they asked us to be part of their wedding and to record the story of the day for them. Wedding morning preparations took place at both parents’ houses and we split up as usual to make sure we made the most of what was going on in both Leeds and York!
Emily & Amman were married shortly after 2pm in a lovey, touching service at the beautiful church of Little Ouseburn before Amman whisked them both away to their Allerton Castle wedding reception in a Porsche that just about managed to contain Emily’s dress! As we walked into the Castle the first thing to grab our attention was Allerton’s famous staircase adorned from top to bottom by the most beautiful floral decorations, provided by Twisted Willow (see below). The drinks Reception took place in the Spring sunshine on the rear terrace, accompanied by a string quartet and some delicious-looking canapes. After couple and family photos and yet another round of confetti throwing (apparently Emily’s Mum had been drying petals for months and ended up with more than she bargained for!) the guests were led into the beautifully laid-out dining room for some (very funny) speeches and a delicious wedding breakfast. Thanks to the lovely people at Dine for ensuring we didn’t go hungry either – the food was delicious!
If that wasn’t enough, the evening party was immense! Great music provided by Vibetown, plenty of dancing and a very special performance by a Leeds-based Bhangra band featuring traditional Punjabi music, dance and dress. It was spellbinding (and ear-ringing!) and the guests joined in with serious gusto.
All that was left to do after an amazing day was to get a few shots of the late night surprise firework display over Allerton Castle’s lake.
We loved every minute of this gorgeous Allerton Castle wedding and we wish Emily & Amman an unforgettable honeymoon in Italy! We hope you enjoy just some of the many highlights of the day below.
