Wedding Venue

Beautiful Winter Wedding at Raven Hall Country House Hotel, Scarborough

A beautiful, crisp winter’s day was the setting for Fiona and Lee’s wedding day.  The sun was shining high, with the gentle sound of the waves below; who could possibly resist this stunning venue.

Raven Hall Country House Hotel in Scarborough is situated 600 feet above sea level, overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay in the North York Moors National Park – simply breathtaking.

As the bridal preparations began in one of the stunning lodges, overlooking Robin Hoods Bay, the groom preparations were taking place some 15 miles away.  By, were we in for a surprise when we turned up to the groom’s house, where he and his friends were certainly making the most of their final few hours.  Bacon and sausages cooking, whisky flowing and banter a plenty – what more would you expect from ex-army guys with huge personalities.

Meanwhile, over at the bride’s lodge, a more sedate morning lied ahead.  Well, that was until they were greeted with a surprise visitor.  Fiona, the bride, has a huge passion for donkeys and, her soon-husband-to-be, had secretly adopted a donkey in her name and organised him to pay his first visit to Fiona on her wedding day.  His name was Monty.  He melted everyone’s hearts with his gorgeous eyes and a mouth that looked like he was permanently smiling – simply adorable.

As the ceremony approached the boys started to look a little nervous but not enough to stop their laughter. Whilst at the bride’s lodge, the champagne flowed.

A beautiful ceremony took place, with two people so in love, declaring their love for each other.  That was until the exchanging of rings! The Best Man had exchanged the wedding rings for two Haribo rings.  Well, I don’t really need to explain the reaction – not a dry eye in the room for laughter – the registrar had been pre-warned thankfully.

A beautiful drinks reception took place as people ventured out onto the lawn to appreciate the views before them. The group shots took place, again with fun and laughter aplenty. It was now time to whisk the couple away for their shots. We explored the grounds and took advantage of the stunning views.

We have heard some speeches over the decade of capturing weddings, however, the Best Man’s speech was so well thought out, well planned and expertly delivered – a huge well done! The Groom’s speech was delivered straight from the heart.

The evening celebrations started, drinks flowed and the dancing began. A good night had by all.

Thank you so much, Fiona and Lee, for allowing us to share, and capture your special day.

Whilst the boys enjoyed, well…being boys, by playing on the swings and roundabouts before the ceremony, the ladies enjoyed a glass of champagne whilst getting ready for the big day ahead. The wedding ceremony was held at St John’s and was lovely service, complete with a lego sermon by the the couple’s local Vicar! Then after a blessing and signing of the formal register, the couple emerged into the beautiful sunshine as Mr and Mrs. A few groups shots later, Heidi and Matthew enjoyed cakes and drinks in the hall next door with friends and family.

Michael & Melissa’s wedding day started and finished at the ever beautiful Carlton Towers in Goole, Doncaster, East Yorkshire. Despite the occasional shower, nothing could dampen the wonderful warmth of this wedding. Mel’s eye for detail was certainly showing throughout the day, with stunning vintage touches, such as lovely little ornate frames on each table with a famous romantic quote. The civil ceremony room at Carlton Towers looked simply stunning with the ornate lights, wood panelled walls and endless painted details on the ceiling. Holly the dog however, didn’t really notice most of this as she slept through most of the ceremony!
