Wedding Photography at Monk Fryston Hall for Jackie and Chris
Jackie and Chris booked us as their Monk Fryston Hall wedding photographers and we were really looking forward to a fun day with such a great couple. It promised to be packed full of interesting things to capture, as they had really thought of everything to make their wedding unique and keep their guests entertained, from hearts which hung in the trees, a bright yellow and white balloon arch, Andrew and Brett of 24 Live who performed throughout the drinks reception and early evening, light up L O V E letters, a Ferrero Rocher stand, a sweet table, a drone video, a casino, a band, an exploding balloon and a choreographed dance routine. Most of these were enjoyed indoors but the bouncy castle and assault course were sadly abandoned due to the wet stuff. So much thought and attention to detail had gone into the making of this beautiful wedding. The weather behaved itself during the wedding photographs at All Saints' Church, Sherburn in Elmet with Chris and the boys but it presented a real challenge from the moment Jackie and her dad arrived for the ceremony. Despite everyone's fingers being well and truly crossed and no doubt numerous prayers said to the weather gods, it rained without let up right into the night, ranging from steady drizzle to absolutely tipping it down. Even so, everyone had a great time and we did what professional wedding photographers do when it's raining, got wet, pulled the brollies out of the car, went to plan B and photographed the groups inside the church, and took Jackie and Chris's photographs inside the venue. Mick, Chris's best man, deserves a big thank you. He was a star, getting people together really quickly for the group photo session and he was on hand throughout the day with offers of help to make sure that his best mate and his new bride had a fantastic day. His speech was hilarious, resulting in lots of laughter and some cracking images. Thank you to the new Mr and Mrs Eames for choosing us to share your celebrations. Congratulations on your marriage and we wish you every happiness for your future together!
