KATE & DAVID'S | IMPERFECTLY-PERFECT, YORKSHIRE YURT WEDDING, ADAPTABLE IN EVERY WHICH WAY.

Updated: Jul 15

Sometime around October last year, Kate & David decided that being held to a contract at a venue - especially somewhere that everyone would need to travel to, including themselves - wasn’t practical. Did I mention they had planned to get married in Corwall originally? Anyway, after their realisation they booked their ceremony at York Registry office, and made adaptable plans around that - the only thing that always featured was Kate's parents’ amazing garden. Their plans grew from there, as the rules and regulations changed. What emerged from their cool and calm wedding planning, was something neither of them would swap for the world.

I think this photo perfectly represents their time with everyone

Magical, intimate and imperfectly-perfect is how Kate and David have since summed up their day, for something that had to evolve and bend right up to the final moment I'd say the pair of them, with a bit or A LOT of help, from friends and family pulled it off pretty well...




LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR DAY.


Kate got ready with David's sister Sarah and her close friend Caroline at the annex in her parent's garden, whilst her mother and her army of family friends pulled together and prepared flowers, food and the yurt after finding out that their "staff" had tested positive for the dreaded C word.

David had spent the night in York, where he'd gotten ready with friends and then headed to The Lamb & Lion beer garden for some pre wedding drinks, I met them there with the button holes and then we had a casual strolled to the Minster because we had time 🤗📸


This never usually happens!!

When we got to the registry office in York, things were a little different, Kate had to be there early and David was seen afterwards, most of the guests waited patiently in the gardens as they were only allowed 10 people in the actually ceremony room. I had to stay in my seat and everyone else was set apart from one another, but this didn't phase Kate and David, they were just happy to be getting married!

KATE'S MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT WAS: The moment the registrar asked me to hand the pen to my husband - to which David loudly exclaimed “OH Dear!”

After everyone got chance to congratulate the pair we wandered down to The Museum Gardens, York to get the formal'ish photos done, before heading back to Marton-le-moor where the rest of the guests were waiting for their grand arrival.

They were welcomed by cheering guests and fist fulls of confetti as they made their way in to Kate's parent's garden for canapés, Pimms and the acoustic notes and of the guitarist who played whilst they mingled.
