I was super excited when Helen contacted me to co-ordinate her wedding day as she was my first international client…ok sadly (for me) she wasn’t planning on getting married over in Switzerland but its always a boost when the business name gets overseas.

Helen and Jonnie were in fact originally from Yorkshire so they had decided on Escrick Parkland for their wedding and were going for a festival theme for the day – my total soft spot having done the same for my own.

I popped down to site the day before the wedding and things were coming together nicely, including the weather. They had a fantastic glamping area so guests could make a weekend of it, complete with showers…spoilt or what?!

On the day, the ceremony, being led by humanist Andy Ison was held down in the woodland with the main reception taking part in a Papakata tipi overlooking the stunning vista of the private girls school in the distance.

Helen arrived in a baby blue VW campervan with her hair freshly dyed a vibrant pink and a bouquet made up of yellow roses. – I love a wedding with colour, however its done!

The weather continued to play a blinder which made for the most relaxed day and the ability to get some great shots all taken by the very talented Georgina Brewster who I’ve had the pleasure of working with before and loved seeing again.

As evening kicked in, I got to experience my first wedding open mic night due to the talented guests they had invited, and then onto a festival piñata full of energy boosting sweeties to ensure everyone could party into the night!
