Castle Howard Weddings – Aimee and Matthew – A Fairytale Wedding
Wow, what a fabulous day at Stillington Church, Parkside, and Castle Howard, for Aimee and Matthew and their friends and families.
Aimee got ready at home, just a few hundred yards and a short car ride from where she was to be married – Stillington Church. This was a very well planned wedding, with thoughtful little details
everywhere around the house. Aimee wore a Maggie Sottero dress with a train and a full veil. Her adult bridesmaids wore very tasteful matching green dresses, and her young bridesmaid wore a lovely dress to match Aimee’s for colour.
She travelled to Stillington Church in a fabulous Bentley Freestone & Webb by Superior Motor Cars
The plan was to return to dad’s house after the church service for group photographs, however mother nature intervened with a poorly timed heavy downpour of rain just as guests were about to leave church. We therefore took the chance to have some photographs in church before returning home for canapés and drinks, as an interlude before going on to Castle Howard for the main reception.
Fortunately, whilst at Parkside, the sun came out. We managed to complete the family group photographs, then the guests climbed on board a vintage double decker bus for the trip to Castle Howard. Aimee and Matthew followed in the Freestone and Webb Classic Car.
I’m delighted to say that the rain held off at Castle Howard just long enough for Aimee and Matthew too have some photographs taken in the gardens, with the fountain and the house in the background.
The Long Gallery at Castle Howard has no equal anywhere that I can think of for weddings, it is magnificent for wedding parties and their guests alike. The food and service are equally outstanding, and Matthew thanked Penny, Jane and their team for the wonderful reception they organised for the guests.
Afterwards, guests enjoyed entertainment from a family friend, who sang for a short while, then The Mojos who played into the night.
We have some amazing photographs to show, I can’t wait until Aimee and Matthew return to see them. In the meantime, we wish you a wonderful honeymoon and look forward to seeing you when you return. Here’s a sneak preview of some of your photographs:-
