Intimate, relaxed and oh so stylish, Jessica and Jonathans’ day at Yorebridge House earlier this year is definitely one to be inspired by – from the boutique hotel setting to the beautiful photography by Victoria Edwards we just love to look at this wedding!
When it comes to finding the wedding photographer, the task can be overwhelming, especially when the groom is a wedding photographer himself! As bride Jess says: “My husband is a photographer covering around 20-30 weddings a year so photography was obviously very important!”
Deciding on the venue, however, was a much easier task, “We chose Yorebridge House as it was small, intimate and very classy. Jonathan has previously photographed a wedding here and rated it at the top of his list. One of the best things about our venue was that we could tailor everything to suit our style and budget – so don’t be afraid to ask, after all it’s your day,” says Jess.
Any words of wedded wisdom from the bride? “Relax and enjoy the planning – we really loved every minute of planning and loved watching everyone have a great time on the day. Take advantage of all your guests being there and have a chat with everyone…and take a step back occasionally and just take it all in!”
