Rebecca and David married at the beautiful Priory Cottages Wedding Venue in October 2016, situated near Wetherby, North Yorkshire. The most perfect idyllic little spot, for such a wonderful wedding.
When I first went to visit Priory Cottages Wedding Venue & Barn with my bride-to-be, Rebecca, I knew this wedding and venue were going something special. Down a private little lane, lies one of the most stunning wedding venues in the area, with exclusive hire during your wedding for you and your guests to party the night away and stroll to bed in the beautifully decorated cottages, right next door to the wedding barn!
A beautiful ancient church is where David & Rebecca tied the knot, just down the road in a tiny village called Wighill, this church was simply magical, rustic with ancient Roman carvings, take a look for yourself, you’ll soon see why I have so much love for this wedding and the locations that were used.
The blushing bride wore a beautiful Caroline Castigliano wedding dress, and the men looked dapper in DKNY suits. Eucalyptus was placed around the venue as a beautiful floral touch, and the bride had the most beautiful floral bouquet. Tasteful touches were what this wedding was all about, and they did not disappoint.
But just before you indulge into Rebecca & David’s wedding photographs, I would also love to leave you with the testimonial I was left by Rebecca & her husband upon receiving her final wedding photo collection, honestly, when my mum read it, she cried! I was absolutely honoured to be a part of this special couples, absolutely breathtaking day & I wish them all the happiness in the world.
“Our photographer was Arabella Smith of Fine Art Weddings. We didn’t really want a formal wedding photographer but stumbled across Arabella on Facebook. I’d already looked at a few wedding photographers online and none of them seemed very ‘us’. Arabella had done some shots of a friend’s children that were beautiful and I looked into her further and found she’d also done some beautiful wedding photography. I knew she was perfect before I even met her – I think I even told her unless she had two heads when I met her I was definitely booking her!
She was probably the best decision I made in the run-up to the wedding. She was just amazing. Someone told me once that your wedding photos are the most important thing about your wedding as they are the physical memories you’ll look at and cherish forever – and they were so right!
From our initial consultation to the end pictures, everything about Arabella was exceptional. She understood our personalities perfectly and worked with us on everything. She captured some beautiful posed pictures of all of us and also some really brilliant action shots which I will cherish forever – I needed the pictures of my son doing the crab in his Star Wars boxer shorts just as much as I needed photos of me in my wedding dress! I’d recommend her to anyone and everyone.”
