Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

As a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer, every love story I have the honour of documenting is unique and holds a special place in my heart. It was a gorgeous sunny day in September 2023 as Ross and Holly set out on their adventure as a married couple. Their special day was everything they'd ever dreamed of, teeming with pre-wedding jitters, heartfelt vows, and lots of celebration!

The day started with Holly, her daughter, and the bridal party getting ready at Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel. They had a talented hair stylist and makeup artist on hand to make sure they looked their best, and, of course, there was champagne to keep things lively. Ross had a surprise for Holly – a beautiful watch that would remind her of the special day. But it was the heartfelt card he included that brought tears to Holly's eyes, and this emotional carried on throughout the day.

Back at their home, Ross and his groomsmen were in full preparation mode – cracking open beer bottles and sharing lots of laughs. Ross even had a little "confetti" trial run, setting the stage for the real festivities to come! Holly had gifted him a watch that he wore for the day, as well as some cuff links and a handwritten note.

While Ross and his groomsmen made their way to the venue in a timeless vintage Imperial Wedding Car, Holly shared an emotional first look with her dad, a truly heartwarming moment.

The Wedding Ceremony was a sight to behold, adorned with the most exquisite white floral arrangements by the talented Passion Flowers Wedding and Event Florists. These beautiful decorations added an extra layer of romance to the already magical day. Surrounded by their loved ones, Ross and Holly exchanged heartfelt vows and rings, sealing their commitment to a lifetime together.

Adding a personal touch, streamers were set off as they made their way down the aisle as a newlywed couple, with guests enjoying the festivities and joining in.

After becoming Mr. and Mrs Naisbitt, Ross and Holly decided to go for something a bit different and opted for bubbles instead of the traditional confetti. It was a fun, whimsical touch that perfectly matched the joyful mood of the day.

After the ceremony, Ross and Holly, along with their guests, enjoyed a fantastic drinks reception with delicious canapés with every bite and sip adding to the festive atmosphere. Adding to the charm, a talented guitarist strummed in the background, treating the guests to some amazing music.

Ross and Holly celebrated their newfound married life with flair, cruising in the fabulous vintage Imperial Wedding Car while raising a glass of bubbly to their love. Not to be left out, their daughter joined in for the ride, making it a family affair to remember.

Back at the venue, Ross and Holly took some time together to snap some precious photos, capturing the magic of the day. They strolled through the beautiful grounds, savouring the early moments of their married life, filled with pure bliss.

The Wedding Breakfast followed, and then the speeches, which were a mix of touching and hilarious, with friends and family sharing heartfelt anecdotes that had everyone in stitches.

As the day progressed, the couple headed back out into the Hotel grounds to capture some group shots with their loved ones.

As the golden hour cast a warm and romantic glow over the rolling Yorkshire hills, Ross and Holly took the time to have some more couple shots, capturing the essence of their special day beautifully.

The evening continued with the cutting of the wedding cake, a symbol of their shared future. Their first dance as a married couple was a magical moment that touched the hearts of everyone present.

As the day drew to a close, the dance floor heated up, and guests unleashed their inner dance machines with some hilarious moves. It was the perfect way to end a day filled with love, laughter, and pure joy.

Ross and Holly's sunny September wedding was a celebration of love, commitment, and happiness. With their closest friends and family, stunning floral arrangements, vintage car, heartfelt speeches, and cherished photographs, their day was brimming with memories that will last a lifetime. It was a fairy tale beginning to their married life, and it was clear that their love was meant to shine brightly for many years to come.

With almost 800 photos captured from the day, it's impossible to showcase all of them but below are some of our favourites.
