“We both had the best day, it was literally perfect and you and Colin had a huge part in making it so. We had a long look at our pictures last night and honestly don’t know how to thank you enough, they are absolutely stunning, we need another few sittings to take them all in. Thank you again for being so amazing on the day. You have captured every moment of our day perfectly and it has been so exciting to relive it all again. Thank you for all your hard work.”
Lucy & Steven
Another one of our favourite couples this year (there are so many!) were Lucy and Steven. They married in August at St Aidan’s Church in Hellifield, near Skipton, before having their reception at The Coniston Hotel.
To quote Roald Dahl, “…if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely”. Well, these two must have been having non-stop good thoughts all day long, especially Lucy who was an absolutely radiant bride, and they were both so much fun to work with.
Colin started the day over at The Coniston with Lucy, whilst I headed over to Steven who was enjoying a pre-ceremony get together with friends and family at The Black Horse pub in Hellifield, just down the road from the church.
After a lovely ceremony, and a glass of pink fizz in the churchyard, the happy couple headed over to The Coniston in Dylan, a vintage VW campervan (yes it has a name!) Lucy had put so much effort into the room decor for their reception; it looked absolutely stunning and as always, the team at The Coniston did a wonderful job of bringing it all together.
