Kate & Charlie’s Yorebridge House Wedding Photography Highlights
12th April 2017
Well if there was a day for Yorkshire to show off its very finest side then it was last Saturday for the wedding of Kate & Charlie in the Dales. It was the most glorious of April days; blue skies, warm sunshine and Spring in full swing everywhere, and it was the perfect backdrop to a simply beautiful wedding for a very special couple.
Kate and Charlie are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet: warm, friendly, kind and genuine in every respect. After a number of years passing like ships in the night with Charlie’s military career taking him far and wide, the last few weeks have seen them secure their first house together, Kate get a great new job near to said new home and now the small matter of their wedding!
The wedding celebrations were held at one of Yorkshire’s finest boutique hotels – the splendid Yorebridge House in Bainbridge. This is where Kate and the girls, and Charlie and the boys spent the morning getting ready before heading to the church in Askrigg for the wedding ceremony (via the Kings Arms for the boys). It was a beautiful service with Kate & Charlie leaving at the end of it under a guard of honour and heading down an extended confetti run. The sight of a big red London bus in the middle of little Askrigg had stopped both locals and tourists in their tracks and there was quite an audience to see the guests heading out of the church and onto the bus for the trip back to Yorebridge House.
The reception was just perfect in the sunshine and we were able to whisk Kate & Charlie away for a few photos while their guests sipped fizz and enjoyed their surroundings. The wedding breakfast took place in the marquee, decorated beautifully by flowers from Twisted Willow and a stunning cake (as usual!) from Poppy Pickering. After dinner there were some wonderful speeches including one from the best man up there with the finest we’ve heard.
And so to the evening “do” – a stonkingly good band “Under the Covers”, a lovely first dance and then some serious moves from a crowd that clearly knows how to party.
What a fantastic day! Kate & Charlie are off on their minimoon to the Lake District before their honeymoon proper in the Summer. We wish them every possible happiness together and are so glad to have been there on Saturday to capture the day for them.
