EAST RIDDLESDEN HALL WEDDINGS
MR + MRS TURNBULL
THURSDAY, 4TH AUGUST, 2016
Two weeks have passed since Adam and Laura celebrated their wedding at East Riddlesden Hall. Selecting the images for this blogpost has reminded me just how busy their day was! A very early 10.45am ceremony was needed purely to fit the day of activities in. Adam and Laura clearly wanted their guests to have a fun-filled, action-packed day and that’s exactly what they got. A vintage bus was provided and guests were handed personalised train tickets on arrival at St. Mary’s Church in Oxenhope. The morning had been filled with rain showers and blustery winds that thankfully stopped the minute Laura arrived at the church with her Dad and stepped out of the car.
After a beautiful ceremony, featuring a string quartet, the new Mr and Mrs signed the register to music sung by Laura’s Primary School class children **CUTE**. A small talk to the congregation about the next phase of the day, a historic timeline of the Worth Valley Steam Railway and the reasons the railway holds such a special place in Laura’s heart.
Union Jack picnic hampers were left on each table to keep hunger at bay. Filled with sandwiches, crisps, macaroons, bucks fizz and ginger beer. On arrival at Keighley station the brass band kept everyone entertained on the platform until the departure back to Oxenhope where guests boarded the vintage bus once again and made the journey to the final wedding destination of East Riddlesden Hall, near Keighley.
The planned lawn games got the go-ahead as the sun was shining by this time and the brightly-coloured, stripy deck chairs were positioned on the lawns in front of the hall.
The detail that went into this wedding is insane and hats off to Laura and Adam! Everything from vintage buses, steam train rides, picnic hampers, a string quartet, a brass band, a ceilidh band, giant love letters, bunting, a lightbox, all the table detailing oh and THE BIGGEST CAKE I”VE SEEN YET!
I left when the sun had set. Half the party dancing to a live ceilidh band and the other half playing cricket. What a great wedding. What a great venue and what a great day! Thanks to Mr + Mrs Turnbull for inviting me along for the ride.
