Appletreewick & Craven Arms Wedding Photography
Katy and Chris got married in the village where they grew up - the beautiful Appletreewick village, which is surrounded by acres of stunning countryside. They kept the whole day in the village, which meant I was able to easily walk around and get snaps of everything (apologies for so many photos!). Katy got ready with her bridesmaids and family at her Grandparents house. She had a lovely team helping to get her ready. Becca Phillip's did Katy's makeup and her hair was done by Crossgates Hair and Beauty. Chris and his groomsmen visited the local, the Craven Arms, where I joined them later in the morning to get a couple of snaps. After the best man had finished adjusting his speech they headed to the church, St John of the Baptist. Katy looked beautiful in her dress by Ava Rose Hamilton. Lots of locals from the village had gathered and eagerly waited to welcome the bride.
Little did they know, after the ceremony the brides parents had organised a little/ big surprise... a stunning horse and carriage to take them around the village (I have never ran up so many hills with my equipment before!). After a short trot around the village they passed the church where everyone was waiting to throw confetti. They then headed down the road to a local field next door to the Grandparents house where the marquee was based. The marquee was beautifully done out thanks to Wharfe Marquee Hire, Blue Sky, Bar Events UK and the Hedgerow Florist team. After lots of photos with their friends and family, they sat down to have their first meal together as Mr and Mrs (served by Ash and Hayley Crampton's team). The speeches were hilarious, filled with lots of tales about Chris' shenanigans, which meant I got some awesome snaps. The speeches got everyone in the mood for what was to come in the evening... a good old Yorkshire knees up (special shout out to the Band, Robinson Brothers and the DJ, DJ Wilko (Andrew Wilkinson!)!
Thank you again to Katy and Chris and all of their friends and family for being so welcoming!
