So long 2014, it was nice knowing you!

W ell 2014 was a great year, but 2015 is going to be something special! But before I get ahead of myself, a summary of the highlights (and there were many) from the 2014 wedding season.

The year started in January with the somewhat wet and windy day wedding day of Chantelle & Chris at St Mary’s in Masham followed by reception at Swinton Park.

February was as it so often is, a zero wedding month, but a good opportunity to get the garden cleared up in preparation for the Spring!

March is when things tend to kick off for us…except it was more gardening plus a few engagement and save-the-date photo-shoots.

April saw the church & marquee wedding at Jervaulx Abbey of Ali & George followed by Amy & Adam’s wedding at Middleton Lodge.

May was a busy month with 2 Rudding park weddings; Alida & Jonathan and Danielle & Jonathan plus 2 Swinton Park weddings (both using Ripon Cathedral for the ceremony) with; Alexandra & Eliot followed by Clementine & Alex.

June was a very busy month including 2 destination weddings to France and featured the weddings of; Gemma & Jack at Chateau de la Cazine near Limoges, Charlotte & Ed’s marquee wedding in Hampshire and Kaylie & Tom’s at Chateau de Massillan near Orange in Provence.

July was another busy month with the weddings of Lucy & Ricky at Hazlewood Castle, Hannah & Grant at Crockwell Farm in Northamptonshire and Wenisa & Simon at The Devonshire Arms plus Helen & Will’s marquee wedding.

August was pretty hectic with numerous weddings including; Sophia & Christopher’s Papakata wedding, Annabel & Lewis at Rudding Park, Nadia & Eric at Swinton Park, Sophie & Ollie’s marquee wedding and Laura & Philip’s at Swinton Park. Plus we moved house back to my home town of Harrogate!

September didn’t slacken off with Rachael & Tom’s marquee wedding followed by 2 more destination weddings in France with Joanne & Ivan’s wedding and then Carolyn & Dustin at Chateau de Lisse in SW France.

October was fortunately a fairly quiet month allowing us to finally unpack and featured the wedding of Kimberley & Rashpal at Rudding Park.

November & December finished the year off nicely with the Winter Weddings of; Kate & Stuart at The Devonshire Fell, Kim & Andy’s Stubton Hall wedding and that of Emma & Richard…which isn’t quite on-line yet due to the pesky Christmas period getting in the way!
