Colourful Garden Marquee Wedding | North Yorkshire | UK
How did you two meet? We’d both moved home after university and met at work. It was love at first sight for Claudia, it took James a little bit longer. Claudia then moved to London and James followed and proposed shortly (6 years) after in Hampstead.
What was your wedding inspiration? We just wanted to have a massive party and everything was geared around that: good food, good band, good music and lots of drink!
Why choose your venue? We chose Claudia’s family home which means a lot to her. Claudia grew up in the house and garden and it felt really special to invite everyone to celebrate with us there.
Tell me about the dress. Claudia wanted a very simple dress. It was high street, from Ghost. The shoes were Valentino rock-stud, a family favourite. Claudia’s Mum wore similar shoes on the day.
Advice for those planning a wedding
Focus on the big things: food, drink, music, and don’t feel you should focus on traditions. Organise steadily over time so you can enjoy the planning and relax in the run up to the wedding.
We never had any concerns investing in a good photographer, it was something very important to us. Like most couples we wanted a recommendation. Claudia’s friend recommended Jonny. When we saw his photos we immediately loved his style. Jonny was very relaxed and took all the formality out of it. As a result he got amazing pictures of everyone having a great time. He captured all the moments that as a Bride and Groom you often miss out on. You must hire Jonny now before he gets booked up!
