[Wedding] A Beautiful Day Full Of Love, Hayley & Jonathan, The Old Deanery, Ripon

On Friday, I headed up to Ripon to photograph the Wedding of Hayley & Jonathan who were getting married on the Saturday. Poor Hayley had a little bit of a stressful evening as her b&b that she was staying in had double booked her, but luckily she was able to stay in a room a family member had booked who was not attending at her venue.

I expected to start with a very stressed out Hayley, at The Old Deanery, but she was surprisingly calm! In fact, she surprised everyone with how calm she was.

The room Hayley was getting ready in had beautiful sash windows that opened up to overlook the hidden garden that surprises most people who visit The Old Deanery. Hair and Make-up were underway with her bridesmaids and mum and dad flitting in and out of the room. 

Whilst I was with Hayley, I had Natalie as my lovely Second Shooter as Hayley & Jonathan wanted groom preparations photographed too. 

Hayley and Jonathan had a Civil Ceremony with a reading delivered by her friend in the middle of the ceremony. Hayley was wearing a Cathedral Length Veil was so fitting being in a venue where they could look outside and see Ripon Cathedral. 

Hayley and Jonathan are so happy together, and so excited to be with each other, it is so lovely to see, and it's important for me to capture the little quirks that make each couple so unique.

It had been raining the entire previous day -  so we headed outside just as it was starting to dry off. It threatened to rain a little but then the beautiful sunshine came out. We did group shots on the lawn as its such a beautiful spot not to take.

Then we headed for bride & groom portraits. Because Hayley got ready at the venue instead of where was originally planned she didn't get to go for a drive in the car - however, this didn't matter as it was still parked up for us to have some photographs with it - after all it belongs to Dad! 

I am sure you agree that you can tell just how very much in love they both are with each other. And so beautifully happy on their Wedding Day which is what it is all about.

Thank you to you both for allowing me to share your special day with you. 

Fast forward to Tuesday and I had the pleasure of meeting Hayley & Jonathan again to photograph the blessing of their Wedding at their local church.

I headed off to their house where this time it was Jonathan's turn to get Hayley into her dress, before they both walked along to church which is literally about 5 minutes maximum away! 

At the church, Hayley & Jonathan walked down the aisle together, as Mr and Mrs to have their Marriage blessed. With hymns and the choir singing, it was such a lovely intimate Wedding shared by a handful of family and friends.

They left the church, hand in hand to "Any Dream Will Do" a reference to the Best Man's speech from Saturday - and from Jonathan's Childhood. I love the recognition on his face as he realizes what the organist was playing.

We headed outside for some photographs, before heading downstairs for tea and cake. It was such a pleasure to be able to spend a second day with you!
