A Winter Wedding at Pentney Abbey
Those Augustine Monks sure knew how to make a magical wedding venue, quite some foresight! Okay, perhaps this was not their original intent and they’ve long since left but nonetheless, if you’re looking for a wedding venue that fuses historical elegance with contemporary style, Pentney Abbey should be high on your list!
This wedding was one of a small handful of full-day weddings that I was lucky enough to photograph in 2020, a global pandemic (you might have heard about) sticking a spanner in the works for much of the rest of the year. But it would always have stood out for me. Hannah and Scott were an absolute joy to spend the day with and it was a pleasure to catch up to one of my favourite make-up artists in Emily, from Love Moi Make-Up and to meet Kelly from Salon2. It was also great to work alongside David from Rideout films.
The ceremony was especially memorable, Scott was obviously wowed as Hannah arrived at the top of the aisle. The readings really tugged at the heartstrings. There were happy tears and hugs between bride and bridesmaid during one of these. The speeches were also genuinely heartfelt and funny and the evening celebrations were a total riot, in no small part owing to the talents of the amazing Joe Ringer Band. One of my favourite photos, from this part of the day, is of Hannah and her bridesmaids downing their tequila slammers – their faces!
We were also treated to some stunning evening light. Being February, it was a little chilly (total brass monkeys!) but Scott and Hannah braved it to make a few portraits before running back indoors to dance the night away.
A happy, glorious celebration – thanks to Scott and Hannah for having me along and for trusting in me. I hope you’ll enjoy your wedding album for many, many years to come!
Here’s a small selection from Scott and Hannah’s day – enjoy!
