The best thing about being Yorkshire wedding photographers is getting to work with lovely couples like Rachel and Niall and getting to shoot wedding photography at Danby Castle. It felt like the last 18 months hadn’t happened, we were back!

Danby Castle is a stunning 14th century wedding venue that’s nestled on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.

On the day we caught up with both wedding parties who were getting ready at nearby Gisborough Hall Hotel.   Rachel’s bridal party that consisted of her mum Wendy and bridesmaids Fran, Charlie and Jane. We also caught up with the Niall and the boys who were in high spirits.

Rachel looked stunning in her dress that she bought from Elise Designs. The simple skimming shape and scooped back really complimented her slender frame and the full-length veil added an elegant touch that looked amazing fanned out in all of our images giving her a beautiful silhouette.

The wedding reception took place in Danby Castle’s atmospheric Court Room. After a lovely ceremony there was great confetti moment as Rachel and Niall walked back down the aisle. Here take a look!

As everybody enjoyed a drinks reception whilst exploring the castle ruins, we took the chance to take some lovely portrait images of Rachel and Niall as well as getting some formal and fun images of them with their wedding party.

The couples’ dog could not be missed out so we got some great images of him in too! Guests were entertained during the drink’s reception with musical accompaniment by singer songwriter Samantha Durnan, who sang beautifully.

The wedding reception was held in the newly renovated 14th century barn located across the lawn from the castle ruins. The barn has authentic wooden beams with intertwining fairy lights, that light up the original 14th century stone work and varnished wooden floor. It’s a gorgeous space for a wedding reception and the original wood burning stove makes it feel all the more cosy.

Now, we love quirks as weddings as they tell us something about our couple’s personalities. At Rachel and Niall’s wedding, our favourite quirk were the knitted bees wedding favours, made by Rachel’s Auntie.

After a delicious meal there were some very heartfelt and funny speeches before the cake was cut, though as it was made entirely of cheese the traditional knife didn’t really do the job so a kitchen knife had to be found. But not before Rachel had taken the opportunity to rub cheese in Niall’s face.

Evening entertainment was provided by The Hootones a brilliant female fronted band who cover lots of classic 80’s hits. COVID-19 restrictions meant that guests couldn’t dance in doors. Though dancing was allowed outside, so that’s what everybody did. Seeing everybody dance outside in the courtyard as the sunset was our favourite memory of the day and produced some amazing photographs. The perfect image to close the story of Rachel and Niall’s lovely wedding day.

A gorgeous summer wedding at a stunning venue. We can’t tell you how good it feels to be shooting wedding photography in Yorkshire again. Congratulations to Rachel and Niall. Thank you for allowing us to tell the story of your wedding day.
