A relaxed family wedding in Yorkshire, England. I just love covering Real Life Wedding and this is no exception – these amazing photos are taken at Gems and Ali’s rustic and very laid back wedding in the Yorkshire Dales. What a gorgeous couple and what a brilliant day – according to Gemma it was a small, family relaxed wedding with fresh flowers, vintage buses and lots of music and laughter.
Gems looked absolutely stunning in a dress and shrug from Morgan Davies, the fantastic gold peep toes from LK Bennett and the garter borrowed from her sister, Nix. Her bouquet was made for her by her talented sister (who is a garden designer and can work wonders with wedding flowers) from seasonal fresh flowers, whilst the confetti was dried lavender and cornflowers in small net bundles tied together with white ribbon. The bridesmaids wore their own choice of dresses.
They hired vintage buses from Yesteryearcars.co.uk to take the guests to and from the church which just looked fantastic, whilst the happily married couple travelled in style in an old vintage car (from Classic Vintage and Travel). The wedding reception then took place at the home of a great family friend where they wined and dined the night away and enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Thanks to Ali and Gems for letting me cover their wedding and for Orhan from Candophotography for sharing these great pics with us.The couple also had a celebration in London for some of their family and friends but mostly their parent’s family and friends who we weren’t able to invite to the intimate Yorkshire wedding because their numbers were so tight.
Gemma’s best bit about the day:
“The service for me – the incredible music we had and saying our vows – I felt so present and so emotional. It still makes me well up when I think about it”
