Church and marquee wedding – Katrina and Steven
Wedding usually fly by, I’m used to that, but what happened on Saturday was amazing – after an early start with the lads at just after 10 am, it was tea time before I could blink.
We had a very busy day, with loads happening, and it really was a ‘wedding with a difference’. For a start, the chief guest was a gorgeous British Blue heifer called – well, Gorgeous.
Gorgeous by name, gorgeous by nature, she took centre stage at a wedding which brought together two farming families – the O’Kane family from Garvagh in Northern Ireland, and the Donaldson family, from York. Bride Katrina, and groom Steve, got together last year when Katrina bought Gorgeous from Steven at The Great Yorkshire Show, and the rest is history. Needless to say, Gorgeous was guest of honour at the wedding.
Secondly, the groom and groomsmen travelled to All Hallows Church, Sutton On Forest, in two shiny new wagons, one from each of the families. Afterwards, Katrina drove the Donaldson wagon back to the farm for the wedding breakfast. The two wagons together looked fantastic, and I landed a cracking shot of Katrina as she pulled away from Church as the new Mrs O’Kane.
We also got to spend some time in Sutton Park gardens with Katrina and Steven and the bridal party, where we managed even more fab photos, this time with Sutton Park as the backdrop.
The wedding guests were treated to a superb wedding breakfast by Michael Kernall Catering . This really was fine dining in a marquee, food of the highest quality extremely well presented, and the finest menu I’ve seen at a wedding in 16 years.
The evening’s entertainment included a photo booth by Booth Revolution and a DJ. Visit this link for more photos from the day on our Facebook page.
