With plenty of sunshine and clear blue skies, Sarah and Lewis tied the knot in Masham, a small market town in Lower Wensleydale on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
And what a fabulous June Yorkshire wedding it was, with plenty of laughter, confetti, fireworks, and even magic…
The couple, who met at school, began their day with a small and intimate ceremony at St Mary’s Church in Masham – an elegant Anglo-Saxon church overlooking the town’s market place.
Lewis arrived at the church with his ushers Oliver, Luke, Neil and James, and best man (his father) Lawrence, in a Rolls-Royce Ghost.
Sarah and her bridesmaids Nicola, Kelly and Laura, and flower girl Keira enjoyed bridal preparations in the lovely Wensleydale Suite at Swinton Park, a secluded, luxury castle hotel. Make-up by Abid Farid at Abzolute Artistry and hair by Nichol Fisher.
Before they also made their way to the Church in a Rolls-Royce – with cars supplied by Keith Snowden Wedding Cars.
Then it was a return to Swinton Park for the reception where guests enjoyed prosecco and Moretti beer with beef wellington and lemon tart tickling the tastebuds.
Magician Mark Waddington captivated the bride and groom, and entertained their wedding guests, with his typically brilliant magic tricks – just how does he do it?!
The couple’s first dance was to ‘Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing’ by Aerosmith and the evening packed in plenty of entertainment with fabulous music from the Chris Hilton Big Band and the Event Music Company.
A fantastic firework display was the fitting end to a marvellous day.
It was a pleasure to photograph Sarah and Lewis’s special occasion and I am thrilled they love their photography.
Sarah and Lewis say: “From start to finish Ryan was a dream, we hardly knew he was even there, he just blended in with the rest of our guests. He captured our day perfectly in every single way. He went out of his way the whole day to get us the best pictures of our wedding, even staying later to photograph our fireworks which we hadn’t planned. Ryan is a brilliant photographer.”
