YORKSHIRE WEDDING // CASTLE HOWARD, YORK
Whenever we visit Yorkshire’s stunning Castle Howard it’s always a special occasion, but from the moment we stepped inside Malton’s Talbot Hotel and met the absolutely beaming Tara, surrounded by her laughing and joking bridesmaids as they got dressed up in all their finery, we knew this would be an unforgettable day.
With a beautiful speech from an emotional George capturing the atmosphere of this elegant day just perfectly and the grandeur of Castle Howard more than befitting the occasion this was a truly beautiful wedding. The weather was just perfect for a champagne reception in the stunning grounds and that gorgeous smile never left our lovely former ballerina bride’s overjoyed face from the moment she stepped out of the car, climbed the stone steps and walked towards her waiting groom.
But after a day of style and elegance, with the formalities complete the guests were clearly ready to cut loose and party like there’s no tomorrow as they hit the dance floor amongst an electric atmosphere, entertained by an awesome band who kept the party going long after night had fallen and the croquet lawns outside became bathed in moonlight. But as if the groom’s speech hadn’t been enough to entertain the guests he soon took to the stage as “Gorgeous George” serenaded the crowd and his new beautiful bride!
There were so many highlights from this gorgeous day and we’ll be sharing plenty more in the longer cut of Tara and George’s Castle Howard Yorkshire Wedding Video coming soon to the blog but in the meantime here’s just a few of our favourite moments, including just a brief sample of that amazing groom’s speech!
