{Alison & Matthew Knight} Aldwark Manor, York {8 July 2017}

It’s lovely to capture a wedding in a new location but with a family you have known for years. Alison & Matthew’s wedding weekend was perfect. The most beautiful sunny weather in a stunning location, filled with fun and happiness.

I met with Alison in the bridal suite of Aldwark Manor on the morning of the wedding. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere as everyone got ready.

Downstairs while the girls were putting the finishing touches together guests started to congregate and Matthew stood proud at the top of the aisle to meet Alison.

Aldwark Manor had a perfect mix of old character and new refurbished rooms. Becky (my lovely second shooter) captured this portrait as Alison made her way down the stairs to meet her Dad.

With the windows wide open and looking out onto the rolling countryside Alison & Matthew met to say their vows.

We heard music from the string quartet and readings from family.

I loved Matthew’s reaction when he first met Alison.

After the ceremony we made our way straight outside to celebrate in the sunshine.

With the sun so bright and high in the sky we took a few photographs under the shelter of the trees.

I then captured the details of the room before the speeches and meal began. There were so many personal touches.

After the meal Alison & Matthew had organised an ice cream stand for guests to enjoy – it was the perfect refresher.

Now this had to be the cutest guest of all!

It was lovely to capture the relaxed atmosphere as guests sat in the evening sun.

We took the opportunity to capture some more photographs in the grounds before the evening entertainment began.

Kicking off the party Alison & Matthew took to the dance floor for their first dance.

…and it wasn’t look before everyone else joined them!

After listening to Alison’s brother and his band play it was finally time to have a well earned rest.

Thank you to Becky for second shooting with me and thank you to Alison and Matthew for being amazing hosts!
