Rudding Park Wedding Photography | Fran & Dave

Rudding Park Wedding Photography is available from Ryan Browne Photography who is commissioned a number of times a year to work at this stunning venue.

Fran and Dave chose their own parish church of Christ Church in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate for their wedding ceremony.  Christ Church is a handsome church and boasts a vibrant worshipping community. When it was originally built in 1831, the design of local architect John Oates, it was described in the local press as ‘a prominent and beautiful object of admiration from all the surrounding parts of this celebrated watering place’.  These words still perfectly describe the church as it stands today.

Fran got ready for her ceremony at Rudding Park Hotel and looked amazing in her Jenny Packham dress and her shoes (which I know she loved!) were by Gina.   Bridesmaids were Fran’s two nieces Grace and Charlotte, god daughter Ella and nephew Luke was page boy / usher.  Dave was in good hands with two best men, Barney and Jim (both old school friends)

After the ceremony Fran, Dave and all their guests went to The Rudding Park Hotel for the wedding reception.  I am always thrilled when I get the opportunity to be a Rudding Park Wedding Photographer.  Set amongst beautiful landscaped gardens and woodland, Rudding Park is a simply stunning Grade 1 listed Regency House and 19th century chapel.  If that’s not enough it also has a luxury spa and a golf course!  All of this makes shooting weddings at Rudding Park a real pleasure.  The couple told me that once they’d seen it they didn’t consider any other venues.

At the reception Fran, Dave and their guests were entertained by a string quartet, and acoustic singer/songwriter Lindsay Caroline, who sang all their favorite tunes while guests enjoyed drinks and canapes.  This gave the reception a friendly, intimate and laid back feel which I know the couple really wanted.

The venue was beautifully decorated with flowers by Arcadian Flowers who had worked with Fran’s vision for the wedding to make the room look truly spectacular.

A traditional wedding ceremony, a truly stunning reception venue and lots of smiles of laughter all day.  Congratulations to Fran and Dave for getting married and creating such a memorable day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember.
