Rebecca & Andrew were married on 26th July 2014 at St.John’s Church, Eaglescliffe and had their reception at Grinkle Park, a gorgeous venue, situated in the North Yorkshire Moors near Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Grinkle Park has beautiful grounds which are always a pleasure to photograph and a fantastic atmosphere!
Beforehand, Rebecca was smiley and calm. With hair styled by Stephen Russel of Yarm and make-up by friend Michelle Dawson, Rebecca looked so pretty and when she got changed into her stunning dress from The Wedding Lounge of Harrogate, her Mum & Dad couldn’t stop themselves from shedding a tear of happiness or two! Rebecca’s bridesmaids wore a pretty shade of dusky pink in dresses from Poppy Bridal and all the girls had bouquets by Sandra Rose which complemented the dress colour beautifully.
Andrew’s best men were doing a fantastic job of keeping the groom calm before the service and all the lads looked dapper in their suits from Baker’s of Middlesbrough. After a few pints to calm the nerves at the pub across the road, it was time for everyone to gather in the church and wait for Rebecca’s arrival. The guests were entertained by singer & guitarist, Val Boyers as they took their seats in church.
Driven by Classic & Vintage Travel of Harrogate, Rebecca & her Dad arrived in style and there was no sign of nerves as they walked arm in arm towards the church. Many happy, smiling faces greeted the beautiful bride as she walked into church, including Andrew’s. He was clearly gobsmacked!!
The service was given a lovely, personal touch with a reading from Marc Eccles, and a beautiful musical interlude from singer, and Rebecca’s sister-in-law, Jen Jones accompanied by Kieran Tweddle on piano, whilst the happy couple signed the register. As they walked out of church, everyone enjoyed covering the newly weds in confetti and waved them off as they made their way to Grinkle Park with Classic & Vintage Travel.
The sun shone over Grinkle Park, which meant everyone could enjoy a lovely, relaxing drinks reception outside and take in the stunning surroundings. After a little time to chat to guests, we took Rebecca & Andrew around the grounds for some romantic photographs of the two of them. Grinkle Park has photographic opportunities both inside and out so it is a perfect venue for photographs 🙂
The reception room looked stunning with floral table decorations, again from Sandra Rose, and was given the wow factor with Limelights giant, ‘love’ sign. After a fantastic meal and hilarious speeches, everyone danced the night away to the music of The Beer Pigs.
