Yesterday the Dave Spink Photography team headed over to one of yorks finest wedding venues, Sandburn Hall for Jayne and Steven’s crazy yet wonderful wedding celebrations.
Despite the father of the bride loosing a golf buggy, the registras being an hour late and only 5 weeks to organise their wedding you could safely say that Jayne and Steven were one of the happiest couples that they had photographed in a long time. It soon became clear that all that matters on your wedding day is the two of you. So to be sure that you have them memories captured for life enquire now about all our packages. Dave and Megan Started the day at the close by at Grifton Lodges where Jayne was preparing for her special day.
Although the day started out calm, it soon picked up its pace as the clock was ticking. So with some quick makeup shots, photos of the flowers and her dress it soon became time to meet Steven and his ushers back at Sandburn for some quick pre wedding photographs.
Before the ceremony was to being, Dave and Megan took that opportunity to capture the outstanding attention to detail and effort that the two of them had put into their decorations throughout the entire room in such a short space of time.
The Ceremony took place in a converted barn with wooden beams framing the room beautifully, with a stunning window wall at the front looking out to the stunning scenery that Sandburn had to offer. Perfect as the weather was beautiful. Once the ceremony had finished The award winning photographers had the opportunity to take advantage of the sun during group photos.
Not only does Sandburn offer stunning views, you even get use of their quirky garden area. Although this section isn’t the largest garden the team have seen , it was perfect for them smaller group shots.
With plenty of time left, the team headed upstairs to see how the wedding breakfast room was looking, and what a transformation it was.
The tables were equip with everything from hand crafted hearts, old photos , beautiful name tags and stunning centre pieces. The seating plan was presented in an old style suitcase with travel labels for the table numbers.
It was now time for speeches. The father of the bride didn’t have a piece of paper, or a rehersed speech, he just spoke from the heart and told many wonderful memories about his daughter growing up.
They say the grooms speech is meant to be the easiest, just thank people, hand out gifts and try not to cry. Steven put his own energetic touch mentioning many things that had gone on in the process of preparing for the day, including Ninja Nat (their own personal wedding planner who was also a bridesmaid) Jayne and everyone on the room were touched by his kind words.
Last but not least, the best man. Introduced with the Eye of the Tiger you could see that he wasn’t shy. He kept everyone laughing and it was a great speech to end the wedding breakfast.
While the last stages of the day were being put together Megan headed outside to get some smaller family shots and to take advantage of the stunning sunset.
All that was left was an Evening reception, where they had organised a band, DJ and even some funky props that people would take photos with. They ended the night with a Zorba dance which certainly got everyone up and dancing.
All in all it was a fantastic day with fantastic people. It was a pleasure photographing their special day and we are sure that they will love the photos that Dave and Megan have got.
