Christina and Tom married at Steeton Methodist Church before heading back to Christina’s parents’ home in Silsden to celebrate. Set up in the grounds surrounding the house, their wedding reception was in a really pretty location, and made the perfect spot for a lovely garden marquee wedding in Yorkshire!
There were lots of personal touches to the day, as well as it being home for Christina. Her make-up was done by a family friend, the cake was made by the owner of a neighbouring B&B, some of the flowers were grown by Christina’s mum, and her brother’s girlfriend (a graphic designer) designed their stationery and table plan.
Thinking of having a garden marquee wedding in Yorkshire?
It’s worth thinking about who you know that could potentially help with your wedding plans and ideas. You don’t have to ask them to work for free but the personal connection is always a nice one to have and means you can (hopefully!) trust them to use their experience to bring your ideas to life.
We’re always on hand to help with planning as well. I love all things wedding and if you’re doing things in a more DIY style, we’re happy to answer any questions you might have, whether it’s about suppliers, or the timings for your day. Christina ran her schedule for the day past us and she’d done a fabulous job of thinking it all through, so we just made a couple of suggestions that might help, and she took it all on board.
Remember, we’ve photographed a couple of hundred weddings and we’re there from morning preparations until after the first dance, so we’ve learnt what works and what doesn’t and we’re more than happy to share our wealth of experience with you!
What did Christina and Tom say about us?
“We wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did to help create our perfect day. You were always there beforehand to answer any question, no matter how small, and on the day you captured so many beautiful moments which have made us laugh out loud (and shed a little tear). We are so glad that you were part of our day, thank you so much.”
