Venues fit for a queen are sometimes hard to come by however located just on the outskirts of York is a little (big) gem of a venue called Allerton Castle. I will never forget the first time I walked in to this place, I was blown away with the sheer beauty and grand decor.

Kim and Alastair decided to celebrate their day is style in this outstanding venue.

The weather was a typical english summers day…wet!!!

I arrived at the venue at the same time as the bride and we all dashed in under umbrellas.

On to bridal prep

It was a very peaceful and calm morning spent with the bridal party.
Downstairs Alastair and his boys were having a game of snooker in the billiards room, after a lot of missed shots it was time for the “I do’s”

Kim made an amazing entrance down the very grand stairs

and along the white carpet to be met by her soon to be husband.

A lovely moment looking at these two join hands, you could see how much they adore each other.

Time for the speeches.
A few emotional and heartfelt words from the father of the bride, Alastair and his best man and everyone was ready for their meals.

Whilst everyone was eating
I had a look around the venue for potential portrait photos. When the weather isn’t behaving it’s sometimes difficult to get outside but luckily for Kim and Alastair the venue had some beautiful indoor locations and even a few areas outside we could take shelter.

After the meals I pinched the couple...
... for 15 minutes to walk about the venue and grounds for their portrait photos and to let them spend a little time alone together. We literally finished just as the heavens opened again so we dashed inside and I let them carry on mingling with their guests.
Soon after it was time for the cake cut and first dance

and what a beautiful end to an amazing day. Their family and friends gathered around them as the danced in each others arms.

A perfect way to finish an incredible day.
