Ox Pasture Hall Hotel Wedding Photography
On Saturday I ventured up to North Yorkshire to spend the day with this lovely couple, Rachael & Andy at Ox Pasture Hall. Set in seventeen acres of picturesque Yorkshire countryside in the North York Moors National Park, this charming former farmhouse retreat has spectacular views over the dale and surrounding fell of the Yorkshire moors.
I started the day off with Rachael, she was relaxing with her bridesmaids in her suite, everything was calm but with a great sense of excitement bubbling underneath. I then met up with Andy who was even more relaxed and casually getting ready for what was set to be an excellent day ahead.
St Laurence’s Church in Scalby
The parish church of Scalby is St Laurence’s. The church is the oldest recorded building in the village. Records show its presentation in 1150 by Eustace Fitz John. The chancel arch and pillars are of that time and the first recorded priest, inducted in 1238, was Henry Devon. It is designated a Grade II listed building.
Rachael arrived at church in her VW beetle and made the short walk to the church flanked by her bridesmaids and her dad. After their ceremony, the couple exited the church to hugs and kisses from family and friends before walking through a proper storm of colourful confetti.
Weddings in the Yorkshire Moors National Park
Arriving back at Ox Pasture Hall, we took the opportunity to enjoy the great weather for some portraits in the gardens before returning back to the party. The guests were soon seated for dinner and the couple were introduced in to their wedding breakfast by Oscar the page boy. After a delicious meal, I wandered the room capturing the relaxed and fun-loving atmosphere before the evening began. On hand for the party were the excellent West Coast Heroes who played the guests into the early hours.
So what a fantastic day! Huge congratulations to Rachael & Andy, I had an amazing day with you, your family and friends, thanks so much for having me with you as your photographer!
