BOLTON CASTLE MEDIEVAL WEDDING
RAY + MORAG
My wedding season is almost done for 2016, so today I’m on blog catch up. I’ll make a start by revisiting Ray and Morag’s Bolton Castle medieval wedding.
I first met this lovely pair up at the Castle along with their florist (and good friend of mine) Susan from The Yorkshire Dales Flower Co. I’m ashamed to say I’d never visited this beautiful corner of our county!
Morag had a vision. An awe-inspiring one. A medieval one.
I’ve never been a part of a full on themed wedding before, let alone a medieval one, so I was unsure what to expect, but reassured every step of the way by Morag’s passion and enthusiasm. I often feel if you’re incorporating a theme to your day, then go the whole hog and that’s exactly what this pair did! From a fire-eating jester to entertain the guests, a cavalry of horses – complete with Heath Ledger look-a-like (swoon) for the bridal entrance, a ring-bearing owl, a bird of prey display in the grounds and a banquet fit for a King, the list is endless. The venue itself was nothing short of majestic and revelled in being the star of the show with its roaring fires, cobbled courtyards and great chambers all finely decorated with seasonal, rustic flowers and romantic candles flickering away in the windows.
All the guests arrived dressed in their finest medieval gowns with a smile from ear-to-ear. I could feel the excitement! A wedding with a difference and a couple very much in love.
Roll on themed weddings I say!
To Ray + Morag, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your very special Medieval Wedding Day. I had such fun capturing the happiness of you both and loved getting to know your guests. I can’t believe two months have already passed since your memorable day. I wish you a happy Christmas later this month and all the love and happiness in the world!
