Goldsborough Hall Wedding Photographer Yorkshire

Lydia & Stu got married at Goldsborough Hall in November. The couple live in Texas in America, and Stu is from Australia, so to say that they were getting married in Yorkshire in winter intrigued me when I initially received their enquiry. It turns out that Lydia is originally from near Leeds, so the couple married in the royal splendour of one of Yorkshire’s grandest settings and even managed to make use of the grounds to make some family group shots, despite it not being as cold or damp as it could have been for this time of year, one of the pressing things with winter weddings is the shorter days, and as the daylight reduced everyone headed inside to enjoy the warmth and hospitality.

Stu and his groomsmen got ready in the local pub in Goldsborough so I spent my time in the morning between the bride and groom as Lydia got ready in the main Hall with her bridal party. Scenarios like this can create logistical issues, but as everything took its pace leisurely with the ladies, the gents were ready in around 15 minutes after which they headed up to the Hall where it made splitting the time between them both a bit easier to manage and on my legs! The couple married in the local church which is set within the grounds of Goldsborough and also has a a sneaky back gate that leads back up to the reception.

After a short reception, everyone was seated for the meal and the speeches , which produced a few tears and lots of laughs. The couple then went into their first dance and the evening do. I was booked to stay until 11pm, which meant that I was able to capture the whole day, having met Lydia and her bridesmaids as they were eating breakfast to the last drunken dance as the DJ played one of his final tracks.
