Rudding Park Spring Wedding, Alida & Jonathan

Swiss chocolate. It’s the best in the world.

Alida gave me a box of the stuff during bridal prep which I then put in my pocket and forgot about until the mid point of their civil ceremony in the Radcliffe room. As tempting as it was, the registrars might have had something to say…

Alida & Jonathan’s wedding at Rudding Park, Harrogate was an Anglo-German affair with the bride being German.

Wearing a Lusan Mandongus wedding dress from Domino, their wedding ceremony took place in front of approximately 90 guests in the Radcliffe room and was followed by a drinks reception on the terrace outside.

Flowers were by Rudding Park resident (her ‘office’ is in the back of the chapel!) florist Colette and the guests were entertained during the ceremony and reception by a pianist.

The gorgeous cake and cupcakes were the work of Amanda Earl at Homebaked Heaven and the evening music by Audio Events.

The couple honeymooned in New Zealand, The Cook Islands and Hong Kong. Lucky them!
