As a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer, every love story is unique, but some stand out more than others. Chris and Maria's wedding was one such celebration that defied tradition in the most delightful ways. Let's dive into the magic of their special day, filled with love, laughter, and a touch of intergalactic adventure!


Their wedding day, set against the picturesque backdrop of Chevin Country Park Hotel in Otley, West Yorkshire, was a beautiful reflection of their vibrant personalities.

The day began with anticipation and excitement as Maria prepared to say "I do" surrounded by her nearest and dearest. In one of the stunning woodland cabins at Chevin Country Park Hotel, Maria, along with her bridesmaids, and younger family members who acted as flower girl and page boy, embarked on the final steps of her journey to becoming a bride. With hair and makeup artists at hand, each moment was filled with laughter and love as they helped Maria get ready to walk down the aisle and into a new chapter of her life. These moments of preparation set the stage for a day filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories.

As the guests took their seats in the ceremony room, the anticipation mounted. Chris, accompanied by his Best Man, stood at the end of the aisle, eagerly awaiting the arrival of his bride.

A musical medley of film music filled the air, signaling the imminent arrival of the bridal party. First down the aisle were Maria's adorable Flower Girl and Page Boy, followed closely by her two bridesmaids, each radiating joy and excitement.

Then, with her heart full of love and anticipation, Maria made her grand entrance, being welcomed in by her proud parents. Every step she took brought her closer to Chris, ready to embark on this journey of love and commitment together.

The ceremony itself was held in a beautiful conservatory which let in the beautiful wintery sunshine. The room was filled with emotion as Maria and Chris exchanged vows, surrounded by the warmth and support of their loved ones.

In the midst of Chris and Maria's ceremony, two of their cherished guests stepped forward to share readings that were not only beautifully written but also delivered with heartfelt sincerity. Each carefully chosen reading added depth and meaning to the occasion, touching the hearts of all who were present, as well as reflecting the love and support that surrounded Chris and Maria on their special day.

Following their exchange of vows, Chris and Maria were officially married and were greeted by a light saber guard of honor, a fitting tribute to their shared love for all things Star Wars.

As avid members of the Scouts, Chris and Maria invited their fellow Scouts to join in the celebration. Dressed as a popular Star Wars characters, their presence added a personal touch to the festivities.

From the moment guests received their invitations adorned with the faces of Sir Humphrey, Queen Cleopatra, and Madam Marmalade, Chris and Maria's three rescue cats, it was clear that every detail of the day was infused with their unique charm. Unlike traditional weddings, Chris and Maria's day was a celebration of individuality. Guests were encouraged to wear their favorite attire, resulting in a colorful array of outfits that added to the joyful atmosphere. Star Wars, Star Trek, Thunderbirds, Doctor Who and more made appearances in the decor, paying homage to the couple's shared interests.

Chris and Maria seized the opportunity to incorporate the light saber guard of honor once again, this time into their confetti photo. This playful twist added a touch of personality to the traditional moment, resulting in a truly unique and memorable snapshot that perfectly encapsulated the spirit of their celebration.


After the heartfelt ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy a drinks reception, soaking in the atmosphere of Chris and Maria's special day. Amidst laughter and chatter, glasses clinked and toasts were made to the newlyweds, celebrating their love and the journey ahead.

Next, it was time for some unforgettable photos against the stunning backdrop of Chevin Country Park Hotel. With its two-story outdoor balconies overlooking the serene lake, it was the perfect spot for group and couple shots. Surrounded by loved ones and bathed in golden sunlight.

Guests made their way back into the venue, followed closely by the new Mr. and Mrs. As they took their seats for the wedding breakfast, it marked the beginning of a new chapter as husband and wife. Once the meal drew to a close, it was time for speeches.

First to stand was Chris, who delivered a heartfelt speech, expressing thanks to their guests for sharing in the joy of their special day. Next, it was the turn of the Best Man, who entertained the room with tales of friendship, adding humor and warmth to the proceedings. Closing off the speeches was Maria, who took the opportunity to express her gratitude and love, not only to their guests but also to her new husband.

As the day melted into evening, the celebrations showed no signs of slowing down. For me, as their wedding photographer, it was an honor to be a part of their special day, capturing moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.
