The perfect wedding at Hornington Manor…


First thing’s first, it has to be said that I have far too many lovely things to say about Laura, Matt and their wedding! It was genuinely one of the happiest days of my year. Considering I was technically working, that’s not bad going!

I arrived at Hornington Manor on the morning of the wedding to glorious Yorkshire sunshine that continued all day long! Laura was getting ready with her bridesmaids, whilst Matt was just a few rooms away with his groomsmen. I always love it when my brides and grooms get ready at the same venue as it means I can float between the two and capture them both getting ready!

Laura looked STUNNING in her dress. Once she was ready, we did a reveal to her bridesmaids, and Laura shared a special moment with her dad reading a letter she’s written to him on her wedding day.

We all made our way outside to the Lychgate at Hornington Manor, where all the wedding guests were waiting in the glorious sunshine. Matt was ready to see his beautiful bride for the first time, and she definitely took everyone’s breath away when she walked down the aisle.

Laura and Matt said their vows with all of their nearest and dearest smiling with them. It was such a beautiful ceremony. After the I do’s, everyone threw some confetti at the newlyweds and enjoyed some Pimms in the summer sun.

After some family photos, we headed into the barn which was beautifully decorated with all of Laura’s handmade wedding favours! Laura and Matt made quite the entrance soundtracked to The Darkness’ ‘I believe in a thing called love’!

The speeches were fantastic, and everyone tucked into some delicious food courtesy of Hog & Apple. It turns out this is also the name for two of Laura’s greatest assets!!!

As the sun started to set over Hornington Manor, we were blessed with the most perfect of golden hours. Laura and Matt had asked earlier in the day if they could do a champagne spray photo. We’d decided to wait until later in the day, and I’m SO glad we did. These ended up being some of my all time favourite photos! I would recommend doing a champagne spray to anyone getting married – it looks incredible!

Soon it was time for some dancefloor madess. The cake was cut, and Laura and Matt kicked things off in style with confetti canons! Everyone joined them on the dancefloor, and it was full to the brim just about the entire night!

All in all, a truly perfect wedding that I count myself so lucky to have been just a small part of. Laura and Matt – you guys know how much I love you!
