Natasha and Justin’s recent Harrogate wedding was held at the Majestic Hotel, a grand victorian building overlooking the town. We started off in the bridal suite where I walked into a very busy room filled with a large number of Natasha’s family and friends all getting ready for the big day. I did notice a striking number of the cutest children mulling about and soon discovered this bridal party was going to be quite large. We had five tall bridesmaids, five small bridesmaids (flower girls) and three page boys, so lots and lots of people to photograph! Fortunately we had plenty of time for the preparations, so enough time to photograph everyone.
The bridesmaids looked fabulous in their navy blue dresses and Natasha was absolutely stunning in her gorgeous gown from the Harrogate Wedding Lounge. Once ready the bride walked out with her Dad to the ceremony room, down the grand staircase which offered a few photo opportunities. The civil ceremony room was beautiful with ceiling high mirrors and huge crystal chandeliers. Natasha looked absolutely stunning walking down the aisle with her father to meet Justin, who was positively beaming! After a lovely ceremony everyone moved outside for the confetti throw and group photos. I must say the back of the Majestic certainly provides a very grand backdrop for photographs, the hotel is absolutely huge!
Fortunately we were really lucky with the weather all day, just managing to avoid the rain, which allowed us to take some couple portraits in the grounds of the hotel. I also took Natasha and Justin back inside to get a few pictures under the stunning chandeliers which seemed to be in every room.
Finally everyone moved into another magnificent room for the wedding breakfast, after which the couple were surprised by their family and friends hiring the singer Youcef Preston to sing for their first dance, I did notice a few people shedding the odd tear at this point including Natasha and her Mum! but it was a very happy moment for them. Natasha said ” It all came together so well and we were really happy. My bridesmaids and my sister did the most amazing job and looked absolutely beautiful, we wish we could do it all over again!!”
Huge congratulations to Natasha and Justin on a fabulous wedding and all the best for a wonderful future together.
