CHARLOTTE & ROB | Going the Whole Hog with a Californian-Chic, inspired Marquee Wedding near Malton.
On the farm, but not on the farm, Charlotte didn’t want her day to look like it was held on the family farm yard, she wanted glitz glamour and a marquee wedding where they could do things as they liked at their own pace.
Choosing to say their I do’s at St Mary’s Church in Old Malton was easy, due to the churche's close connection to Charlotte’s family, it has been a place close in their hearts, having hosted many sentimental celebrations there over the years. Not the mention, the building and grounds are absolutely stunning too.
After the ceremony they returned to Charlotte’s family farm, where they’d set everything up earlier in the week, they had a glamorous marquee, lit with purple up-lights and classic chandeliers. The tables had been elegantly decorated by Kymm Queen with burnt-orange, rustic roses and pampus grass floral displays that hovered majestically, above the tables, which were adorned with candle light and chocolate-heart favours. Remember I said the wedding was in a marquee? It was, nevertheless, you won’t spy any photos of a marquee in a field in this gallery... When getting married in summer and celebrating in a marquee, it goes without saying, it can get sticky and close when inside. Cleverly, the couple erected the marquee inside of one of the corn sheds on the farm, keeping it cool and comfortable for all their guests no matter what the weather. They knew they had the space, but as I mentioned earlier, Charlotte didn't want it to look like they were in a shed, so they disguised the corn shed by lining it with this marquee, honestly you would have never known.
What a fabulous day, Charlotte got ready at The Talbot, a local hotel in Malton and Rob completed his finishing touches at The Wentworth Arms in Old Malton. It's safe to say there was very much a Leeds Football club theme to the groom and groomsmens' preparations, what with ties and cuff links, there was also a sentimental homemade banner they wanted to hold for a photo. When Charlotte was ready, she was chauffeur driven to the church in the most tasteful Rolls Royce, which later took them back to their marquee venue.
Here they enjoyed canapés in the sunshine, although at times we did think there could have been a down pour as the rain started spotting, they totally got away with it…Take a look at how their day panned out.
I love to capture unique days like Charlotte and Rob's, they took an idea and made it their own, I could see bits of their personalities everywhere I looked and that was the best bit. Don't ever be worried about owning your day and making it yours. I love seeing these ideas come to life, just weeks before their wedding this shed was full of the odd tractor or two and maybe a combine too, look what they achieved.
Many hands make light work, well maybe not light but they can certainly bring a dream to life.
