We recently had the pleasure of working with Mel & Matthew photographing their beautiful wedding at the Pavillions of Harrogate, Yorkshire. Their whole day was full of personal touches from the confetti to the table details, and celebrated their wonderful family life with their two young daughters.
The Pavilions of Harrogate made the perfect backdrop for the ceremony, and luckily the British weather came through for us all and the amazing staff at the venue managed to pull together a beautiful outdoor ceremony under the white pavilion in the grounds. Mel & Matthews daughters even got involved in the ceremony, not only being the flower girls, but also going up to give the rings to their mum and dad before the all important exchange.
After the ceremony, and lots and lots of confetti throwing, we headed out with the happy couple on a tour of the grounds for their portraits. And what huge grounds they were! We were driven by the amazing staff who took us to woodlands, viaducts and beautiful open spaces before heading back to let Mel & Matthew spend some time with all of their wonderful guests,
All of the details throughout the day really put focus on family and celebrating with friends, from the relaxed vibe of the reception to the speeches and the first dance...which Mel & Matthew insisted everyone joined them for! Looking around to see all of their friends and families dancing and celebrating together was nothing short of heart warming! There were some pretty impressive moves thrown on the dance floor from all involved, and we even got involved with the dancing...the music was too catchy not to get caught dancing while we photographed...some pretty impressive multitasking!
