Hotel Du Vin York – Wedding Photography of Kirsten and Gareth
We photographed the wedding of the lovely Kirsten and Gareth at the Hotel Du Vin, York on Sunday – here are a few teaser photographs to peak at whilst the couple are away on honeymoon. The full set is ready and waiting for when Kirsten and Gareth return from honeymoon and have had a chance to visit the studio.
Kirsten and her bridesmaids got ready at the Hotel Du Vin itself. The bride chose the unusual colour theme of blue – blue shoes, flowers, table decorations, gents ties etc. The only part of the day that wasn’t blue was the bright red
Porsche 911 Carrera S that groom Gareth ‘test drove’ to the venue – an envious perk of being a car reviewer and writer.
The civil wedding ceremony was held in the covered courtyard at the Hotel Du Vin, and guests enjoyed drinks afterwards before dinner in the restaurant. The hotel is full of lovely little nooks and crannies, very rustic and beautifully decorated, and a delight to photograph.
One of the hotel’s features is its staircase – as part of the couple’s wedding photography before dinner, we included shots in the staircase area. I’ve toned a few of these shots with a fitting blue tone to match the wedding theme across into the wedding album.
We left after 9pm, once the first dance had passed and the floor was full of the guests boogying into the night.
Here is a selection of photographs from the day – look back here in a few weeks for the link to the full set, once Kirsten and Gareth have been over to view them.
In the meantime, have a great honeymoon, we’ll see you again soon.
PS A special mention goes to David McDonald and his team at The Hotel Du Vin, who were extremely helpful and professional throughout.
