Oh my goodness! I cannot begin to tell you how fabulous this wedding was! Having found me online, I got an email from Sophie back in December 2018, as Sophie and Scott had recently booked their September 2019 wedding at The Grand Hotel in York and so knew they had to secure a photographer pretty sharpish. I was SO pleased when she got in touch, as luckily enough... I was free!!
Like an idiot... I didn't actually ask where they lived and assumed that it was near York, given the location of their special day, as we arranged to meet just over the Humber Bridge so they could get to know me before making a decision on whether I was a fit for them or not. As we met and got chatting, it turned out they actually lived 10 minutes away!! Hahaha! But, we still had a good evening and a couple of weeks or so later, I was chosen as their wedding photographer. Yay! They even asked me to do some of their wedding stationery too... perfect.
We were in continuous contact with one another and time just flew by when we met up again, this time in York at their stunning venue, where I could picture their special day perfectly! Going over all those final details before the big day is a great feeling. As I now have to do the majority of these consultations virtually, it is a little different these days, but, I/we still do have as much fun and the pictures I get in my mind are just as clear!
It was a cracking wedding; Sophie got ready at the hotel, so it was ideal being able to flit between her and Scott arriving with his entourage of men. What with them both having worked in the hotel industry and familiar with the wedding set-up, they both knew the drill but you could see that it was their day and they enjoyed every minute of it!
From the getting ready to the singing bicycle choir who decided to gatecrash our group photo session, it was the best day! Having York as your backdrop for you as a newly married couple must have been the greatest feeling. There is something quite special about a city wedding and so, here is their story in pictures! Just how it should be.
