On Saturday I joined Jess and Freddy to photograph their wedding in York, which was at St Michael Le Belfry followed by a reception at The Merchant Adventurer’s Hall. From start to finish it was a super relaxed and lovely day!! Both the bride and groom got ready in the centre of York so were close by to the church, which meant that they could each walk to the ceremony. Jess walked with her dad and Freddy with his best man and family.

The ceremony was wonderful with prayers led by Jess’ parents and some fabulous music by the couple’s super talented friends. Jess and Freddy are both musicians so the whole day was filled with great sounds and a buzzing atmosphere!

After the ceremony they exited church where they were congratulated by all their guests and then showered with confetti!! The church is in a magnificent setting in central York, right under the tower of York Minster. Jess then donned her hand embroidered jacket (by Bumble Bunch Creations) for the walk across the city, down The Shambles and over towards the Merchant Adventurer’s Hall. Luckily the sun shone for most of the day so they were able to have drinks on the lawn outside the hall, where we also took lots of family photographs and a few portraits of the couple alone too.

Then followed dinner, speeches and a cake cut! In the evening Jess’ brother, Rory, welcomed everyone on to the dance floor where he sang for their first dance and got everyone bouncing with a great set. They had also booked Hyde Family Jam who were incredible, ┬ácontinuing the party into the night.

It was such a lovely day! I loved the bright orange and blue colours they chose for their flowers and the way they co-ordinated with the bridesmaids dresses and bridesmen/men of honours waistcoats. It all looked so pretty and colourful.
