Rebecca & Jon // East Riddlesden Hall in the rain. 6th February 16

I joined Rebecca & Jon on a rainy August morning at the Wheatley Arms in Ben Rhydding, where they were both separately preparing for their wedding later at East Riddlesden Hall.


To say ‘it rained’ would be an understatement but no-one cared as everybody seemed to be too busy having a good time. Rebecca & Jon were married in the famous Airedale barn, a beautiful rustic space on the grounds of East Riddlesden Hall.


The barn was bedecked with amazingly beautiful flowers and stylish table decorations all prepared in the unique style of Emma Ridgeway of Emma Weddings & Events 


Mid-way through the evening, the cloud broke, it was our only chance for some dramatic portraits… We all bundled into my car and headed up the hill to Ilkley moor, where the sky appeared to be on fire… A few minutes later we saw the rain sweeping back towards us and were forced to leg it to the dry safety of the car and back to East Riddlesden for cake, dancing and general merriment.


What an incredible day, it was truly a privilege to be along for the ride that was Rebecca & Jon’s wedding!


I’m one of the National Trust’s preferred suppliers at East Riddlesden – they have two wedding fairs there a year, catch me at both! The first is on April 17th 2016.
