This one really was a long time coming as Lauren & Mike originally booked us all the way back in 2018!
When their original wedding date was postponed in 2020 (no prizes for guessing why!) we met up with them at their GORGEOUS Yorkshire wedding venue, Bunny Hill, to photograph their pre wedding shoot on their “would be” wedding day (you can check that blog out below…)
Then another email landed with us later that year to postpone their second plan of early 2021 but this time for the best possible reason…they were expecting their son! So FINALLY here we are in 2022 and we got to meet them and their whole family, including their newest addition, to document a gorgeous and long awaited wedding day!
Both Lauren and Mike chose to get ready on site in the lovely rooms at Bunny Hill, which left plenty of time for some surprises in the morning! Lauren took her dad on a morning drive in their classic car (although hilariously had to do it in her PJs in case the groom accidentally saw her in her dress!) and the couple exchanged some heartfelt gifts.
Having realised that we had some time to play with in the morning we had also planned to do a “first touch” with the couple. Honestly it was not only super cute but we firmly believe a little hand squeeze is something all you need to calm any morning nerves!
After their lovely ceremony it was time for the confetti shot. Slight problem being that it was 60mph winds outside, but not to worry as the venue came through for us all and let us arrange it in the ceremony room instead so people could throw confetti with wild abandon in the safety of indoors!
Not that the wild weather could keep Lauren & Mike indoors, they braved the cold and came for a walk around the venue stopping for photographs in some of the gorgeous locations that Bunny Hill has to offer from the Barn to the woodlands. Sadly we couldn't head into the actual trees because the weather was such a hazard but we still had so much fun on the portraits with lots of twirling and laughing!
The evening do really pulled out all of the stops to show what a real celebration this day was now it was finally here with a gorgeous first dance followed by sparklers in the courtyard and once they were all lit and everyone was having fun...a surprise fireworks display for the guests!
It's always such a pleasure to work with our couples, but having chatted all things wedding planning for 4 whole years it was an absolute joy to see this one finally happen. Thanks for trusting us with your memories!
