Jenny and Jonny married at St Michael the Archangel Church in Kirkby Malham, before their Yorkshire Dales farm wedding in Airton, at Jenny’s family farm.
In mid September, it’s hard to predict what the Dales weather will do. But after a misty start, it stayed dry for Jenny and Jonny, although a cool breeze told us that autumn was on its way!
That morning, I headed off to Hellifield for Jonny’s groom prep. Obviously keen, he and his groomsmen were almost ready when I arrived so I followed them off to the pub in Kirkby Malham (handily right next door to their church!), where they celebrated with a couple of drinks before the ceremony!
Meanwhile, Colin was with the bride and her family up at the farm, before they headed to the church.
Kirkby Malham church is beautiful. I particularly loved the upper level inside the church, which has huge glass windows so you can see the bell-ringers doing their stuff! It also meant I could sneak upstairs during the ceremony and get some lovely shots from the back of the church (whilst Colin was up at the front, closer to our lovely couple).
A Yorkshire Dales farm wedding
After the ceremony, we headed back towards the family farm, but not before stopping off for some photos on the way. The road between Airton and Settle is up high and super open to the elements, so if it’s windy, you’ll feel it, but that also means it’s a beautiful spot and Jenny suggested it for a stop off. You’ll see a few of their photos below.
Then it was onward to the farm for all the usual celebrations with their family and friends, before sitting down to the wedding breakfast in a beautifully decorated yurt. After speeches, the partying continued well into the night!
What did Jenny and Jonny say about us?
“What a day! We had the best day of our lives. You were both great and we can’t thank you enough. The more we look at these pictures the more we love them! They tell a lovely story of the day. Thank you so much!”
