Becky and Matthew were married on Jubilee Day at Rudding Park. In the First they had a brief civil ceremony in Rudding Park library before a full wedding ceremony in the chapel, ministered by Father Geoffrey.
Becky wore a light summery dress for the civil ceremony, and a gorgeous Ian Stuart dress for the main ceremony. Her five lovely adult bridesmaids all wore ‘Cadbury purple’ dresses. Flowers were supplied by Collete Swinburn of Flowers by Colette.
Becky’s young flower girl led the wedding party into the chapel afterwards, laying a path of rose petals for Becky to the altar. Groom Matthew changed from casual dress in the earlier ceremony to a full morning suit and cravat for the main ceremony.
Event music played throughout the day, with a trio of musicians plus a singer during the church service. They also played during the afternoon reception, then the Event music big band played for the evening guests, with Richard Wilkinson singing.
Fortunately the rain held off in the afternoon. The guests were able to enjoy their champagne and famous Rudding Park canapes outside on the terrace.
It really is fantastic to see such a lovely couple enjoying their wedding day so much – neither Becky or Matthew stopped smiling all day. It was a pleasure to be part of the day, and I can’t wait to show the rest of the photographs when you return from honeymoon.
During the speeches Becky’s dad Chris thanked everyone, with a special big thanks to Craig and his team at Rudding Park for helping to make the day run so smoothly.
For now I’ve added a few teaser photographs below, see you when you get back!!
