Rudding Park Wedding (newly re-furbished!)

Weddingson March 2nd, 20123 Comments

Here we go! First wedding of the year was a Faye & Stephen at the newly refurbished Rudding Park, Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The Radcliffe Room has always been an impressive space but I have to say now it’s had some new colour on the walls, new lighting and audio it really looks stunning and brings it in to line with the rest of the hotel. It’s not just the Radcliffe that’s been decorated though, the other rooms have all had similar treatment and the reception area has been painted a lovely grey with new mirrors – I don’t think I’ve shut up about it since to be honest I’ve amazed myself how excited I’ve been about it.

It was great to have our first wedding of the year at a familiar venue, with staff we know (and get on well with) and of course a lovely bride and groom and their respective family and friends.
I checked the weather forecast on the Friday and it was rain in the morning which was due to clear by lunchtime with a bit of sun to follow and a drop in temperatures. Saturday morning arrived and I took a peak out of the window to see it absolutely chucking it down – eeek! But for once they got the forecast bang on and as we arrived at Rudding the sun was out and it was all looking good.

Faye and her bridesmaids were all pretty chilled and Faye was having the last bits of her make-up done by Sarah Aveyard which included what I was told was ‘fairy dust’ – OK, I’m not falling for that one girls but it did photograph quite well icon wink Rudding Park Wedding (newly re furbished!)

The stunning flowers were arranged by Colette who’s the talented in-house florist at Rudding and the Radcliffe room chairs were dressed by Tahlia.

The attention to detail by all the staff at Rudding and other vendors was obvious as everything looked absolutely perfect and extremely stylish which was clearly exactly how Faye had planned everything to look.

As expected everything ran smooth as clockwork as Faye & Stephen had worked with us by switching the format of the day around slightly to ensure we got the best use of available light (don’t worry, this wasn’t changed on the day, it was all planned months in advance) so after the Civil Ceremony they had a drinks reception with a few group shots and some photo’s around the hotel followed by a blessing in the chapel as the light was starting to disappear. It actually worked perfectly having the blessing a little later as it was a little more atmospheric with the candles in the chapel.

After their wedding breakfast their was a little surprise for Faye as a secret firework display had been arranged by Ferrensby Fireworks (nice to see you all again guys – how cold was it out there?) which then lead nicely into cutting of the cake and first dance.

    Stunning images as always. Isn’t the refurb stunning? A whole new level again isn’t it.

  2. Morgan says:

    It’s transformed it completely. When we arrived we popped in to drop a signing frame off before we headed to get some bride prep photos and I was immediately blown away by the reception area, I really love the grey on the walls.

    Pretty chuffed we had the first wedding in there too, there’s going to be a lot of really happy brides at Rudding this year!

    Thanks for the comments on the images!
