My second Yorkshire wedding in a row took me to Denton Hall near Ilkley. The bride Lou is a very accomplished make-up artist, so not only did she do her own make-up, but that of her bridesmaids and her mum too!

After the ceremony, featuring tear-inducing readings, guests were treated to canapés and a wedding breakfast by caterers from local Michelin-starred restaurant The Box Tree. Speeches featured both dads, all the bridesmaids and a taped musical performance by a very young Dave courtesy of the best man. Cringeworthy stuff, especially for Dave.
