Our Tale of Two Cities Wedding Weekend
Salisbury & York
It's been a few weeks since our last blog! We've been busily gearing up for a number of events and our corporate and commercial work has also kept us out of the studio for much of March and April.
However, the weekend just gone has been a rather romantic one. With two weddings booked in medieval cathedral cities, it promised to be a weekend full of celebration and contrast for both couples.
Our wedding on Saturday took in the lovely Salisbury Registry Office at Bourne Hill with it's splendid grounds followed by a reception at Salisbury's Cosy Club. Being a former solicitors office, the Cosy Club has been lovingly refurbished and is a rather lovely venue for a wedding celebration.
Cate & Paul had booked us approximately 8 weeks before the big day and within that time we'd completed our reccy and had some pre-wedding photographs in the grounds of Bourne Hill. Knowing that their wedding was to only have a few select guests we were able to work with their ideas for relaxed and informal photography.
The expected wet weather held off all day and Cate & Paul and their guests had a lovely relaxed day. Cate & Paul are now honeymooning abroad.
Sunday's wedding of Kerri and David was booked back in February 2013 at Salisbury's Guildhall Wedding Fair. Kerri and David met in York and had their first date at The Hospitium which, if you know it, is a fabulous Tudor building in the York Museum grounds.
We completed a reccy in York with Kerri & David back in February and having said at the time that the next two months would fly by, that's exactly how it turned out as their big day drew ever closer.
The expected wet weather also held off meaning that Kerri & David and their guests could make the most of the beautiful surroundings in which their wedding was held. With approximately 90 guests from home and abroad Kerri & David also treated their guests to an inpromptu ten minute show (which is the norm at weddings in Luxembourg). They partied late into the evening and Kerri & David are now taking a short break in York followed by a honeymoon later in the year.
Two lovely couples with contrasting wishes for their wedding photography both set in arguably two of England's most beautiful cities.
We wish both couples all the best for the future.
