Rachel & Joshua – Ripley Castle Wedding Photography

Weddingson October 27th, 2012No Comments

Rachel & Josh were married on August 23rd at Ripley Castle and it was a pleasure to be their wedding photographer, what a fab couple they are! We didn’t cover bride prep so started the day at Ripley finding Josh and the guys having a sneaky bottle of Black Sheep in the bar. I think Josh was relieved when I said they didn’t have to do anything but enjoy their beers and I’d catch up with them in a bit.

Rachel arrived at Ripley looking stunning and sporting one of our favourite stylish head pieces that make for lovely portrait shots and they day went from there with a lovely ceremony & reception.

All the guests and family were great fun and seemed to be having a fantastic time at Ripley Castle, with the usual attentive staff ensuring everything ran smooth as clockwork, hell even the weather played ball!

Here’s a selection of images from the day, the bouquet throw looked like it could’ve got out of hand but thankfully no injuries this time icon smile Rachel & Joshua   Ripley Castle Wedding Photography

For Ripley Castle Wedding Photography please view the selection of images below.

We’ve been recommended by and have photographed weddings at Ripley Castle now for several years. Come rain, snow or shine it’s always been a favourite of ours to work at and we absolutely love visiting the venue.

Ripley Castle is a beautiful, historic and picture postcard perfect wedding venue.

It is the perfect venue for your wedding ceremony, wedding reception, civil wedding, civil partnership, or if you wish to renew your vows.

The Ripley Castle team are friendly and professional and provide a seamless level of service together with a total commitment to ensure that your wedding day exceeds every expectation.

They have a number of rooms within the Castle’s Main House and East Wing licensed for wedding ceremonies, including the oak panelled 16th century Library and the Amcotts Room, an old coach house, which was beautifully restored a few years ago. The Ripley Castle chefs have an excellent reputation for their superb cuisine.

Whatever the time of year, guests can enjoy champagne on the terrace during your reception and admire the beautiful scenery, or on the circular lawn in front of the East Wing of the Castle.

The photography options are endless, you can stay near to the castle should you not want to stray afar, however if you fancy a stroll through the beautiful grounds then the lake makes a perfect backdrop for your photography (and it’s not too far away).

Should the weather not be playing ball on the day, the hotel has plenty of options inside and more importantly lots of space and gorgeous details to work with.

Ripley Castle Wedding

Weddingson May 31st, 2011No Comments

We photographed Amanda and Ben’s wedding in March at Ripley Church followed by Ripley Castle (it is wonderful when the reception venue is so near the church as it saves people getting lost en-route) which was a wedding we’d been looking forward to since we first met the couple (and Amanda’s parents) at the UK Wedding show in Harrogate back in September 2009.

On the day we didn’t have the best of weather which is something we’re quite used to dealing with although it was nice when the lovely people from Superior Motor Car Company were on hand with umbrellas, even holding one over my head whilst I took a few shots and completed the list of group photographs – usually I just stand in the rain getting soaked.

The beautiful flowers were by Helen James Flowers of Harrogate who were there to swiftly move displays from the church to the reception, as usual the staff at Ripley Castle were brilliant and the food looked superb, all in all the weather didn’t put the dampeners on things, not even the fantastic firework display by Ferrensby Fireworks!

About time we posted something here!
Here are a few images form Carmel & Dominics wedding in May (yes, we’ve got a bit of catching up to do on the blog). The ceremony was at St Josephs on Skipton Road followed by one of our favourite venues Ripley Castle. Although we did have a bit of rain on the day everyone had a jolly good time and we (well everyone but me) all managed to keep pretty dry.

Umbrellas

Weddingson March 10th, 2009No Comments

In the height of the winter, our luck with weddings and weather never fails to surprise us. Covering bridal preparations on Valentines Day at the wedding of Deborah and Tom we noted a rake of umbrellas in the hall of Deborahs parents house and thought ‘good planning’, although it was a crisp sunny day outside. Deborah was super calm and ready in good time giving us a great opportunity to get some cool portraits before we had to get to the venue.

So off we went to Ripley Castle for a candle lit ceremony, shutters closed to enhance the atmosphere!

and upon exiting the ceremony and preparing for the groups we noticed the rain had started.

Unfortunately, as the weather had looked so good in the morning, the umbrellas were still at Deborahs parents house. The good news at this point was that the ceremony was in part of Ripley that had a bit of cover just outside the door so we managed to keep everyone in the groups under cover (well, almost) leaving just us out in the rain – Deborah and Tom did offer the use of an usher with umbrella on a number of occasions, but we dutifully declined and got on with the job in hand.

Thankfully the rain eased off, stopping after a short while giving us the opportunity to grab some of the shots below with Deborah and Tom, and the day continued successfully unspoilt by a few minutes of good old Yorkshire drizzle.

The moral of the story here is, if you buy umbrellas for your wedding – don’t assume that a bright sunny day will stay a bright sunny day!
