Yesterday we had the pleasure of joining Laura & Phil for their wedding day at Nostell Priory, a National Trust venue just south of Wakefield and a favourite of Kelly and I.
The day began with Laura’s preparations taking place at the impressive Oulton Hall (where she and Phil had also booked a couple of nights after the wedding to recover!), whilst Phil and his entourage spruced up at Hotel St. Pierre. Amidst surprise showers and beaming sunshine it was then on to Nostell Priory for the ceremony. Laura & Phil had chosen to make their vows in the ceremony room of the main building and quite rightly so, as it’s one of the more impressive rooms I’ve photographed and is flooded with natural light. Fortunately, after the ceremony the sun had been out long enough to render the balcony safe, so we were able to get all the guests outside for a big group photo. So, with the official part over we made our way to the riding school building for, as the Registrar put it, ‘Party Time’! Nostell weddings are managed by Dine Services, who always put on a great spread and are a lovely bunch of people to boot.
Despite the typical British April weather we managed to get through the day with minimal soakings and had a thoroughly good time. Anyway here are a few of our favourites from the day…
