Swinton Park is an outstanding wedding venue, a castle hotel surrounded by beautiful parkland in the Yorkshire Dales. It really is an amazing setting - with the lake right in front of the castle and deer wondering freely around the grounds.
There was some amazing detail that went into this wedding - all done by Tabitha herself, she made all the beautiful stationary - she even embellished her awesome white Doc martin boots!!
Tabitha & Andy met through on line dating and "I realised what a catch he was straight away" she said, together nearly ten years they are just perfect for each other.
Sadley Andys dad passed away before the wedding but Andy proudly wore his fathers wedding ring and Tabitha wore her grandmothers.
Moomins featured in their wedding!!! (I used to love Moomins! hahaha) The cake was stunning (with Moomins!) from The Cake Box in York and they had wonderful bunting made from Storm in a tea cup gifts all handmade with lots and lots and lots of Moomins!!! :)
I did a little collage of the little touches that filled the marquee with all the wild flowers and throughtful games that Tabitha had put together.
I think the best surprise at his fabulous wedding was.......... The Singing Waiters!!! Only Tabitha and one of her bridesmaides knew about the singing waiters - they'd mingeld, poured wine (albeit the wrong wine hahaha!!) then when no one was expecting it they burst into song - it really was fantasic! No one had any idea but not only was the surprise great the boys were just fabulous entertainers!!
Ok - I'll stop gushing now - here are just a few of my favourites.
