AMBER & ROB | RELAXED BUT LIVELY, YORKSHIRE CASTLE WEDDING, WITH GARDEN GAMES AND MORE.
Updated: May 26
Here we have the first, full-day wedding of 2021, no wonder Amber and Rob couldn't wipe them smiles off their faces. It may have been a rough journey getting here, but no one was going to stop them having a good time when the day actually arrived.
CHOOSING THE DRESS
This was the the third dress Amber tried on, it wasn't the lace she's expected to pick but when she put it on she just knew. Simple and classic it is a statement in it's own right, the glistening diamanté and thread details on the capped shoulder straps and the A-line belt gives it all the glamour it needs. It's worn very well by Amber who teams it with a mid length veil, which draws your attention the the covered buttons that run down to the ground.
After getting engaged, Amber spotted the castle ruins at Sheriff Hutton, near York on her drive home from work and having fallen in love with them and the idea of getting married somewhere like this, the pair sat down together to see if there was potential to finding a venue like this. Luckily for them, the ruins had been recently licensed to host weddings with the owners only hosting 6 weddings there a year, they were thankful to be able to book for their date. The 14th century castle was at one time the grandest castle in Northern England. It was a favourite residence of Richard III and Henry VIII and is steeped in 600 years of royal history. It's an incredible place to have a wedding!
THE COUPLES THOUGHTS ON THE VENUE
From the second we entered the grounds, when we met Pat & Natasia we knew we wanted it. We loved the character of the ruins, the history and stories it comes with.
It just seemed perfect - and we felt like King & Queen of the castle on the day!
OVER TO THE DAY ITSELF
It was relaxed, fun and full of joy, They began getting ready in Malton, Amber at her Mum's and Rob in their own home with his dad and Bestman. Capturing both of them was wonderful the girls were just enjoying being together doing girly stuff and the boys were organised enough to be timing a drink at the Wentworth Arms in Old Malton before they were to meet at the church for a 12pm service.
There were so many people waiting to see Amber's arrival at St Mary's Church in Old Malton; guests that were no longer able to be part of the congregation came along to witness them both coming out of church and to sprinkle confetti over them for good measures whilst wishing them all the best.
We couldn't help but stop on the way to the venue, the drive was just so picturesque and Howard, who drove this stunning car is a sucker for a good photo of his car with the Bride and Groom on a good backdrop
