Ceremony & Reception: Hazlewood Castle, Tadcaster, North YorkshireBlessing: St Leonard's Chapel, Hazlewood Castle
Second-shooting with Gav Harrison
After a small intimate ceremony in the castle, there was a more lavish blessing in the adjoining chapel. If anyone reading this is planning to get married, you won't get a better service anywhere else. The vicar is easily the nicest (and funniest) that I've encountered in all the weddings I've covered and the whole congregation joined in the fun.
After the blessing, it was straight outside for the confetti and group shots, which looked like they might be interrupted by rain but fortunately weren't. In fact the weather more-or-less behaved itself all day until the surprise fireworks display, when it absolutely chucked it down.
Overall, a stunning venue and a wonderful couple. Congratulations to Sam & Gary and thanks for a really enjoyable day.
