As I arrived at the hotel it was a foggy foggy morning, much to my dismay, as the venue is perfect for photographs. However, while shooting the bridal prep pics, I noticed a sunny patch appear on the fields across the valley, which proceeded to grow and become a completely sunny day. Perfect!
Preparations were done at Simonstone Hall, the boys met at The Bolton Arms in Redmire. What a lovely little pub for drinks and bacon butties outside in the sunshine before getting married.
On to the church.....St Oswald Church in Castle Bolton, an amazing little chapel in the shadow of a castle. What an incredible place to tie the knot. So quaint, so historic, and so romantic.
Back to Simonstone Hall for the reception, held in a marquee overlooking one of the best views in the world.
On to this backdrop, put one of the loveliest couples I have met, and one of the craziest (in the best possible sense of the word) bunch of families and friends, and the recipe is duly mixed for one of the best days of my life.
I hope the photos did it justice, and Euan & Sarah were exceptionally pleased with the results, so I guess they did. The stunning quality of a Graphistudio storybook album with metallic print pages will be the ideal way to display the pictures too, and the design is just about ready to send to Italy for printing. I can't wait to see the finished article.
