Rebecca and Ian’s Cave Castle Wedding

On Saturday we photographed our final wedding of the 2019 at Cave Castle! What a fabulous occasion it was!

We started the day bright and early with bride Rebecca and her mum Gail, and bridesmaid Jade. The ladies were busy getting ready when we arrived. Kim Shanks did Rebecca’s hair and Toni Naylor did her make up. As the preparations were underway, we photographed Rebecca’s beautiful dress that she bought from Molly Browns of York.

We were very happy to find that not only Rebecca was ready early for her bridal portraits, but Ian also arrived early for his session as well! This meant that we had plenty of time to create some special photographs for both of them.

Ian had three best men; Alex, Scott and Tom, and when we arrived to photograph Ian, they were busy writing their speech outside on the terrace!

The wedding service was lovely. However, due to the rules of the East Riding Registrars, we were only permitted to take a few photographs. However, we were permitted to take some photos of the readings and ring exchange. Afterwards everyone enjoyed a celebratory drink on the lawn whilst we got on with the family formal photographs. This was completed quickly, thanks to the support of toastmaster Michael.

Rebecca and Ian opted for a traditional line up so that they were able to greet their guests before the wedding breakfast. During the meal, pianist Phil Culkin entertained everyone. Before the speeches, Ian opened a bottle of champagne with a saber, a technique known as Sabrage. The pop of the cork received a big cheer!

Speeches were delivered by both dads, the bride and groom and all three best men, to much laughter and applause. The Charm Offensive delivered the evening entertainment whilst guests partied.

We had a wonderful day with Rebecca and Ian, and their family and friends. we wish them every happiness in their future life together.
