Aw man, what a day to spend my birthday! Not only at one of my favourite venues, but with a lush couple!
I knew when Rob and Rebecca first got in touch that they were going to be lovely, and they were! These guys got married at Wharfedale Grange, and had a gorgeous day with gorgeous weather!
They even bought me a Mint Aero birthday cake, which was INCREDIBLE!
“We chose Wharfedale Grange because it just had everything we needed and it was so stunning. Plus it had the ‘wow’ factor (#owenwilson) that nowhere else had.
We didn’t really have a theme for the day, but we just wanted to keep everything relaxed so everyone could enjoy it”
“We have 3 favourite parts of the day – if that’s poss! In chronological order:
Number 1 was getting ready with all my gals and family, and watching people arriving (with a cheeky glass of prosecco).
Number 2 was the actual ceremony, as it was so magical and so fab to be actually married!
Number 3 was the first dance, even though we nearly didn’t have one – all the official bits were over and we were super relaxed and happy, with a good few dancing hours left. I also loved the best man/father of the bride speeches, and everyone getting to know everyone who they’d heard of but not met… I will stop now.
We loved getting our pictures taken!
I think keeping the official photos to a minimum is a good idea as they consume so much time and personally I think the best ones are impromptu ones.
Having an idea of the most logical order of the photos too saves faffing. Maybe give certain people a heads up if they’re in the shot or not so they’re not awkwardly lurking wondering if they’ll be called forward (other halves of cousins/relatives for eg who may not be too sure).”
What would be your top tip for a future couple?
Photo wise – pick you (obvs) and go for the full day package as it was so worthwhile having the shots from getting ready etc.
In general – set up the day before if possible, this helped us out hugely.
