Aske Hall in North Yorkshire has a long, illustrious history, with its earliest recorded mention in the medieval classic - The Doomsday Book - Printed in 1086.
Jo and Rich had their wedding ceremony here, thanks to Jo’s mum’s being employed by the manor house’s current owners. The couple tied the knot with the couple’s French bulldog acting as the ring bearer. It was very moving.
Bride and groom left the church in a jubilant mood to have some couple portraits taken by the lake, and some posed family group photos on the lawns outside.
The reception venue was held in the stunning grounds of 18th-century farmhouse, Olliver House. There were hula hoops, plate-spinning activities, and creative fun, for guests waiting for their turn in front of the lens, while I continued to take a mixture of posed and reportage shots. A wedding breakfast was then served under the canvas of the venue’s ultra modern gazebo, and was followed by some very touching speeches.
In order to make the most of the beautiful, dusky evening light, we went off in search of a few more settings for bride and groom portraits. We found some really lovely scenery in the cornfields, and next to the charming stone walls.
Back at the reception tent, we discovered the dogs at the wedding had remained with their eyes glued to the enormous pork pie cake! The dancing went long into the night. A beautiful venue and a fantastic couple. I’d like to wish Jo and Rich all the very best!
