I was invited by my good friend and fellow photographer Annemarie King to come along for a super sunny wedding this weekend.
I have known Annemarie for a few years now and we each bob along on one another’s weddings when we have the chance. It’s great for us as we have such a ball trying to out do each other with the best photos and it’s great for the couple as they get two fab photographers (can I say that about myself?) shooting for them.
It was the hottest day of the year and Jamie told me that he had booked the weather especially for Claire. Here is Jamie getting ready and having a little trouble with his winsor knot.
Claire had chosen a wonderful fairy like wedding dress with fairies and wild flowers as their theme.
They held their wedding at the Church of St. Botolph at Bossall in North Yorkshire. The priest was a family friend who had seen Claire growing up from a young age. Here he is contemplating his service before Claire and her father arrived.
The Bridesmaids arrived by black cab which was decorated in wedding ribbon. It proved to be a great way to arrive as the doors were large enough to get in and out easily. If you’d like to book the taxis you can contact Ian or Dave on 01904 791739.
Claire arrived in a vintage chevvy…
Claire and her father were greeted at the Church by their priest.
I cheekily moved up the aisle to capture this fun moment…
Claire and Jamie held their reception on Claire’s parents farmhouse…
…where they opted for Papakata tipi style tents instead of a marquee where they had lounging sofas and real fires burning.
One guest had left a present for Claire and Jamie on the top table, a knitted wedding cake!
Annemarie’s mum was one of the guests and I took a quick photo of them when I saw them together.
As Claire and Jamie started their speeches I packed my camera away but not before I had time to take this closing shot of the Papakata tents in the lovely gardens.
