Briony and Alistairs Saltmarshe Hall Wedding
As a leading East Riding wedding and portrait photographer, its always a pleasure to work with a lovely couple at a beautiful country house, and Briony and Alistairs Saltmarshe Hall Wedding was one of those! This wedding was perfect for my relaxed, candid and timeless Yorkshire wedding photography.
As usual, I traveled to the Brides parents home to capture the Bridal and Bridesmaids preparations and excitement. I also find my experience of over 1300 top weddings helps calm and assist the bridal party (and keep the timings on track!). Our Bride looked stunning in her wedding gown by Bridal Oasis of Goole and the flowers by my friends at All Occassions Howden finished the perfect look.
We met up with Alistair and his groomsmen at the beautiful Howden Minster, a church I have worked at many times, to capture some of candid wedding photography we are renowned for before he left to check the registrars. Briony arrived (on time!) and after we calmed a few nerves, a lovely wedding service followed.
As usual, I took a few swift, relaxed groups outside before sending the guests onto the Saltmarshe Hall whilst I took the happy couple back into the Minster to capture some beautiful, timeless images and give them a chance to take it all in! Massive surprise outside as an incredible 2 horse carriage, a vintage bus and a funky VW Beetle awaited to whisk them and close family away to their venue.
Saltmarshe Hall is a beautiful country venue set in stunning grounds with its own lake and framed partly by the River Ouse – it is a place I know well. (checkout my Saltmarshe Hall portfolios in Pinterest stephenarmishawphotography). With top staff, its a picture perfect setting for my top East Yorkshire Photography!
After a few more quickly taken intimate groups, everybody took a drinks break to mix with their family and friends which allowed me to capture the fantastic setup as well as some more candid and reportage wedding photography. The now very relaxed couple (nothing to do with the drink!) and myself had a walk around the grounds and interiors of this wonderful venue to capture some formal (and very informal!) wedding portraits.
The wedding breakfast was prepared by top chef Karen at Tastes Devine and was fantastic as you would expect from this lovely and talented Lady. Best wedding puddings ever, and I’ve had a few!
The night was spent partying and dancing, with an intimate evening wedding photography session towards the end which my couples always say they love, and then stayed late until after 11PM (when I say I stay late, that’s what I mean. Not just the first dance then away!). Many thanks as always to the top crew at Saltmarshe for their help and professionalism.
I’ve post a few images below, please enjoy…..
