LAURA & SCOTT | Burythorpe Country House Wedding, with hues of pink and children galore.

Receiving her maternity ring before the engagement ever even happened, should tell you that these two never planned to get married at all, yet during the 2020 pandemic something made Scott change is mind. You can imagine the shock Laura felt, when she was called from the kitchen to find Scott in the hallway, on one knee with Harley and Hattie stood each side, she really couldn’t believe her eyes. Laura was lost for words and so the speeches went, this is a rare occurrence.

Laura and Scott have been together for nearly 17 years, they have two beautiful children, who I could tell are very precious to them both, they have a lovely home and already so many memories together. They’re a close knit family and actually met through Laura’s brother, he’s one of Scott’s friends.

Even though these two had never planned to get married, Laura had always dreamed of saying her vows under the roof of St Mary’s Church in Old Malton, if the chance should ever arise. She loves the grand exterior and has many sentimental ties to the building, since they had their two children christened here and as a child it had been the church she’d go to for seasonal and festive services with school.

The thing these two were most looking forwards to (when they eventually decided to do this thing and actually, get married) was spending time with their friends and family. Life can get so busy, it’s rare that whole families’ ever get together, so this occasion has been something they’ve been very excited about indeed.

When they came across Burythorpe House, it was exactly what they wanted, close to home, so their friends and family could get to and from the event with ease. Plus, they loved it’s picturesque grounds and the fact that there’s plenty of them. With the two of them being together for such a long time they have a heck of a lot of joined friends from over their years. It was a sure thing they’d need space, they wanted a marquee, that way they could mingling freely and just take it all in.

Not only did the they want the space for the marquee, they wanted to give their children the freedom to run around and have fun, knowing they’d be safe.

Everyone enjoyed the sun in the gardens and watched the kids have the time of their lives, as they did, they had the pleasure of listening the the acoustic live music after dinner. The live music was important to Laura and Scott, they wanted their guests to relax and have a dance too in an atmosphere suited to this. They both felt that adding the music would create this feeling and it sure did.
