Tithe Barn Bolton Abbey
Katie and Steven got married and had their reception at the beautiful Tithe Barn's in the Bolton Abbey estate. It was such a beautiful day... even the rain didn't stop the smile and pure genuine happiness that radiated from them.
They were very lucky to of been able to book out Olicana Park, just down the road in Addingham to get ready at (as they don't usually allow large group bookings). The log cabins just near the lake made the most beautiful location to get ready for a wedding! It was lots of fun running in between the two cabins to capture Katie and Steven getting ready.
Steven headed off to the barns and I took the opportunity to get some photos of Katie getting into her dress. After a dress reveal for the bridesmaids, her Mum and Dad I drove 5 minutes down the road to capture the boys and the guests arriving at the barn before Katie arrived. The ceremony was incredible and I made the most of the opportunity to be able to use the space behind the registars to get lots of different types of photos of them both and the guests reactions.
After the smallest and shortest confetti shot (thanks to the rain)... I spent aaages taking photos of the stunning decor. One thing about the Tithe Barn is you can just never have too many photos of it. It looks beautiful from every angle. The beams, fairy lights, chandeliers, greenery all compliment each other so well. It makes the perfect venue for a rustic wedding.
I also took lots of photos of people too. The bride and groom were keen for lots of natural shots of them just enjoying the day, so I morphed into ninja mode, hid behind a beam and snapped away. Unfortunately for them I did make them go outside for a couple of photos of the two of them which I am sure they will appreciate one day... Especially when they have something to hang on the walls.
The evening begun with some epic emotional speeches, which followed by cutting the cake, lots of dancing, singing and partying!!
I am very lucky to be a recommended wedding photographer for Tithe Barn... it is up there with my favourite wedding venues in Yorkshire (now alongside with the Olicana Park..)! The rustic Tithe Barn's wedding venue is set in the stunning Bolton Abbey Estate, which features amazing landscapes, a cute little village, a river and the ruins (so many photo opportunities!). Since growing up in the area and being a regular visitor to the stepping stones it is like a dream come true for me to photograph weddings there regularly (Thank you again to the team for all the lovely couples you have recommended so far!).
