St. Giles’ Church, Copmanthorpe, York and Wentbridge House Hotel Wedding
So we started off at Wentbridge House and eventually ended up back there, via Wakefield for bridal prep then on to York for the church service in the family church! A bit of a tour of Yorkshire by all accounts!
The day began early with cut throat shaves for the groom and his ushers, a first for the Pixies, definitely a great idea for a bit of groom pampering, why should the bride get all the attention! James from The Gentlemans Retreat certainly looked the part and with champagne on offer too, this was a perfect way for the boys to start their day!
Meanwhile Peter was with Francesca at her parents house in Wakefield, a house full of their very distinctive laughs! A few shots with the old chitty chitty bang bang style Lagonda in the garage, unfortunately it wouldn’t start for the wedding day, so remained at home! No fear there was plenty of vintage transport on offer, with two buses from the Yorkshire heritage bus fleet and a gorgeous vintage Rolls Royce for the bride too – all colour co-ordinated of course, in black and cream.
So everyone safely transported by various means we were now all just outside York at their old family church the tiny St.Giles’ church in Copmanthorpe, where the local cafe did a roaring trade in take away coffees! With a few false starts as Francesca made a timely toilet stop enroute to the aisle, time for a few more laughs though!!!
Bubbles galore that was Francesca’s request, bubbles there were and looked absolutely fab – we would definitely recommend bubbles to anyone! So a scenic journey back through Yorkshire to Wentbridge House Hotel, with reception drinks clinking in the sunshine outside. Fizz, canapés and Yorkshire sunshine what more could you ask for a perfect wedding day, a slight hitch in the speeches as the South African skype link to South Africa just wouldn’t connect but they managed to get Steve’s friends in on the action by phone.
Another fantastic Wentbridge House Hotel Wedding, with their outdoor drinks reception making the most of the preened lawns – Congratulations to Francesca and Steve (and Francescas’ parents for organising it so well – as Francesca and Steve live in London and were renovating a house too! :))
