On a lovely Saturday morning in April I arrived at Joanne's family home ready to capture her wedding day and I couldn't have been made more welcome!
Some families just make my job so easy and at Joanne and Simon's they couldn't have done more.
Their wedding was all about family.
I arrived early while the girls were all out at Top To Toe, Dunnington having their hair done. While I waited I photographed Joanne's beautiful flowers and her lovely father, John made me a cup of tea. I think John did a great job in the kitchen that morning, keeping the ladies in tea, toast and even some Prosecco while they all got ready.
Joanne's work colleagues had arrange a special surprise for Joanne. Unbeknownst to her, they had organised Make up artist Kelly Medina Enos to do Joanne's wedding day make up. And what a fabulous job she did!
Meanwhile at The Parsonage, the boys were all there present and correct. Simon and his groomsmen all looked very smart in their suits from York Hire Wear.
And the hotel was looking gorgeous.
Finishing Touches had worked their usual magic adding the chair covers and table runners, which always finish a wedding breakfast room off with style!
Joanne and her father arrived in a stunning 1930's vintage wedding car from Ryedale Limousines ready for the ceremony at The Parsonage Hotel.
The ceremony was full of laughter, tears and joy. And so was the wedding breakfast!
During the afternoon there was plenty of time for Joanne and Simon to sneak off in their very own vintage car to have some photographs taken. The country pond at Skipwith was so beautiful and I think you will agree, worth the short drive.
The evening function started with Joanne and Simon's stunning cake from Iced Yorkshire been cut by the new Mr & Mrs Flint followed by a truly romantic first dance as man and wife.
It really was a wonderful day, one I thoroughly enjoyed been part off.
Thank you to Joanne and Simon for having me capture their day and to all their wonderful friends and family for making it such fun!
