Wedding at Tanfield House – Rebecca & Scott

This wedding at Tanfield House was a truly romantic day. Rebecca and Scott are one of those couples that you just know are absolutely made for each other; true soul mates. They were also very good fun and a pleasure to photograph. They choose Tanfield House near Ripon to get married because of it’s romantic countryside location and exclusive use of the grounds, allowing them to have a very personal experience and intimate setting. The venue is situated on the banks of the River Ure with stunning views. We were fortunate to have glorious sunshine all day which allowed the couple to get married in the pavilion at the rivers edge.

This was a day of much joy and laughter and quite a few happy tears. Scott was clearly very moved on seeing Rebecca walk in to the pavilion. She looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero dress and there were quite a few hugs and tears all around. The ceremony really was lovely with some beautiful readings from Rebecca’s best friend and Scott’s Mum. The couple looked so happy! After some congratulations and a showering of confetti they relaxed with their friends in the gardens with some drinks and canape’s.  The day before Rebecca had given Scott a stunning pocket watch as a wedding gift. From looking at the images with friends and family I think he actually offered the time to every guest at the event, well it was a very nice watch!

The wedding breakfast took place in the marquee next to house. I was very impressed with the couple’s styling, which was based on a writing theme with poems, letters, journals etc. The had a vintage typewriter for guests to each contribute a little bit of text to make a story of the day. I thought this was a brilliant idea and apparently the resulting story was hilarious, although a bit too risqué for publishing unfortunately!  Regarding the letter theme Rebecca said ‘When Scott and I got together I shared some of my writing with him – I’ve always written poetry and stories – and, possibly to both our surprise, we found that Scott could also turn a poetic phrase or two! It was a major sign that we could completely be ourselves with each other. Since then we’ve continued to write pieces for each other and the theme of the wedding was really a nod to that and to the fact that we have written our story together as it unfolded…’

After dinner the light was beautiful so we took a bit of time for some extra couple shots by the river. The couple had a romantic secret dance by the riverside before moving back into the marquee for the official first dance of the night. This wedding day was an absolute pleasure to photograph. What more could you want as a photographer than perfect weather, a stunning english countryside venue and a truly romantic couple. I’d like to wish Rebecca and Scott all the best for their future lives together.

Thank you to Allanah and Neil who own and run Tanfield House and who were so accommodating on the day and to my assistant Megan for doing a great job second shooting.
