Winter wedding photography at Swinton Park, Masham, Clare and Oliver

Winter wedding photography at Swinton Park, Masham

Whilst the rest of the country was blanketed in snow in early December, Clare and Oliver were planning a winter wedding at Swinton Park, Masham. News reports were full of lorries jack-knifed on the A1 (amongst other places), and with more snow forecast, we felt that the only thing to do would be to bite the bullet and book in at the hotel to be guaranteed of being there for the wedding itself.

As it happens, the day of the wedding was completely clear, with strong blue skies, and the scene was set for a romatic civil ceremony in the library, before guests enjoyed an afternoon reception followed by dinner in Samuels restaurant. Clare and Oliver braved the snow for some fabulous outdoor shots in the afternoon, and in the evening. Later, whilst the guests danced to an evening DJ, the snows came again and blew horizontally across the grounds outside.
