Josie & Bruce's Sledmere House, Driffield Wedding Photography Blog.
From the first moment we met a year ago we knew this was going to be one amazing wedding. Josie and Bruce knew exactly what they wanted from their wedding day and were prepared to put in the hard work to make it fantastic......and they certainly pulled it off.
They were to be married in the most amazing of venues, Sledmere House in Driffield East Yorkshire. The ceremony was to be held in the main Sledmere House then over the road to the barn for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. We were shown pictures of the barn before Josie and Bruce had put their mark on the place and to say they had their work cut out would be an understatement but in line with there vision and excitement they turned the place into something unforgettable.
We first met with Josie in her bridal preps. Always unsure how nervous a bride may be, we were met with a very calm and excited Josie. Herself and her bridesmaids getting their final hair and makeup touches done while we shot away capturing some natural moments.
We had news that the boys had arrived so we shot over to get some great groomsman pics.Again all the groomsmen were in great spirits and it was great to meet them all. The wind was blowing a little heavy at this point but the skies were clearing. Today was going to be a good day!
Before we knew it, it was almost time for the ceremony. Guests were arriving and all systems were go. Bruce had the usual slight apprehensive look upon his face as he stood at the front of the ceremony room but as soon as he saw his wife to be, you could see him relax instantly.
The ceremony went without a hitch, apart from the "awful husband" incident!! but this only fuelled what was to be a great light hearted day. Leaving the ceremony room as husband and wife, in true Sledmere House tradition the confetti fell over them as they walked hand in hand down the beautiful staircase.
After group shots and making sure we got them some amazing bride and groom photography everyone headed over to the barn for the wedding breakfast and speeches.
The evening went perfect with the cutting of the cake and a first dance followed by the most amazing dance show.
So as we fully expected, Josie & Bruce pulled it off. One amazing day was had by everyone and we would like to thank Josie and Bruce for making us feel so welcome. Big congratulations to you both and we can't wait to see you both to get your album designed.
