The Hospitium York Wedding Photographer Testimonial

“Our photographers were Bethany and Matthew & we highly recommend them. They’re a brilliant partnership: talented, relaxed and capable of taking incredible photos without intruding. We got our pictures back very quickly, which was great – we got to enjoy looking through them on honeymoon!”


The Hospitium York Wedding Photographer

Adwoa and Jonny’s elegant York wedding combined a traditional British feel with Ghanaian touches. This was to reflect the bride’s proud heritage. The result? A completely unique celebration.

This couple were married in spring in the beautiful city of York and if you can show me a dreamier combination of location and time of year I will happily eat my fascinator. We love this day for so many reasons … the bride joyfully tangled in her veil, the groom’s last-minute hair check courtesy of his best man and especially the look of utter glee on Adwoa’s face in the back of their wedding car. You simply can’t fake that magic!

Wedding Suppliers

The dress

I fell in love with an Alan Hannah dress called Evita, which I tried on at Brides of York – they provided an excellent service. To complement my skin tone. I wanted a warmer colour than pure white. so I asked for the dress to be made specially in ivory Duchess silk. It was made in London to my exact measurements and I absolutely loved it! I accessorized with a ribbon-edged veil.


For my shoes, I went for a mid-heel classic in Duchess silk, which I found at Freya Rose. They were lovely to wear.

The Rings

Our rings were from Berry’s in York. Who provided a top-notch service. My hair was by the very talented Sadie Belleh at Blake and Butler. I was lucky to find her. She was able to do both Afro and European hair, so could do mine, my bridesmaids’ and my mum’s! Ash Fehners did all of our makeup and was another excellent find.

The Groom

Jonny wanted a beautifully-made, classic three-piece suit. He went to Mullen and Mullen in York to have it made and opted for a Royal blue with paisley lining. Both the suit and the service were fabulous. He accessorised with a champagne-coloured silk tie and classic brown brogues from Loake, which he bought from Watkinson’s.


My bridesmaids wore ivory mid-length dresses from Oasis. They were all different shapes, height and skin tones so I wanted something that would work for everyone.

Best Man 

The best man and ushers wore blue suits hired from Moss Bros, with ivory ties to match the bridesmaids.

Wedding Car 

We hired a beautiful classic Jaguar from Limelight Wedding Cars in Bishopthorpe, as our wedding transport. They owners, Nick and Beverley, were really helpful and professional. Nick even drove us around York to give us a few precious minutes together after the ceremony so that we could savour the moment.
