It’s always fantastic to return to our favourite venues, and Skipbridge Country Weddings near York is definitely one of them! We’re proud to be on their recommended photographers list, and love working with the team there.
Maddy and James were our first Skipbridge wedding of the year (three more to come…yay!) Colin started the day with Maddy for her bridal preparations, whilst I headed off to James and his groomsmen at his parents’ house.
Then it was a quick trip to the local pub for a swift one for James and the boys, before they made their way to the church!
Whilst Maddy’s mum was handling the finishing touches with her…
And then the vintage bus arrived to transport the girls to the church…
And it was time for the ceremony at St Helen’s Church in Bilton-in-Ainsty.
And then as I drove over to Skipbridge to get started on some detail shots, Colin joined Maddy and James, and their guests, on the vintage bus back!
The brilliant Phil Lyons and his New Vintage Band provided the entertainment for the evening (we highly recommend them – they sound fantastic and always get everybody on the dance floor!)
We always try to find a few more minutes in the evening to have a second little session with our couples. Sometimes the light is amazing (and we had a bit of that for Maddy and James) and sometimes it’s just a nice little escape to spend a bit of time ‘alone’ on a day that usually goes in a flash (okay we’re there but you can just ignore us!)
Congratulations Maddy and James – we wish you all the very best for a long and happy marriage together!
