The first of a number of Yorkshire weddings for me. Jo and Andrew live on their farm on the edge of the Studley Royal estate that houses Fountains Abbey and Hall, so it was a natural choice for their venue. They had their ceremony at St Mary’s church on the estate, and the weather held off just long enough for a meet and greet, before everyone headed down to the hall for drinks. At which point the heavens opened!
Following a short walk (with umbrellas) past the abbey itself, the guests found themselves in the marquee for food, speeches and dancing. There was much rejoicing.
