The Normans Wedding Photographer for Katie & Josh
The Normans Wedding Photographer….As luck would have it for me – Katie and Josh were let down by their wedding photographer and I just happened to have the date free- it was literally the last date I did have free in the year and a venue I really wanted to shoot as so I feel like it was meant too be! Then I met them and wow what a fab couple – The day was just a dream full of soooo much joy!
The Normans Wedding Venue
I love a country wedding, based in Yorkshire I shoot a lot of lovely country weddings. All things farms make me happy, The Normans is very cool. As you may well not know me and my husband recently converted a cow shed into a home and studio – so I am very into all things barn conversions as well as weddings 🙂
The Normans is a lovely relaxing venue, you have it to yourself, there are no swirly hotel carpets – its stunning, its surroundings are beautiful, its romantic and the staff are awesome, so all in all thats an epic start right!
A few words from Katie & Josh
The Wedding Dress
“A classic dress that allowed me to move, breathe and dance without worrying about how I looked. I got it from the wonderful Elena Ferrara Bridal in York. She is a lovely human and made all the dress fittings so special. We were sad that the dress stage of the wedding was over after the last fitting as we had all gotten really close over the year of dress adjustments. The dress fit me perfectly on the day and all of the additions that we had made worked really well and the veil Elena helped us choose was perfect. We all named the dress Cassie! She definitely had a great party!”
The bridesmaids chose their own dresses from a shop just outside of York called Joy’s Bella Bridesmaids. This was such a good place because it caters just for the bridesmaids and feels like another wedding dress shopping experience. It was really nice having that for the girls so that they could try lots of different options. The shop is just wonderful and has so many options.
Betty’s Flower Club – the florist, Cat, is a very nice person and she created the most beautiful bouquets. We just gave her a general idea of ‘something autumnal’ and she created those!
The Wedding Cake
A good old M&S colin the caterpillar cake! Two giant ones to feed all of the guests.
The food The Hog and Apple were our caterers. They were really really good and provided a feast fit for a king. They will create anything you like – our guests were very complimentary and couldn’t stop talking about it!
A singer that performed for a few of our friends’ weddings, Yemi Bolatiwa, sang with her band. She has a beautiful voice and really creates the party atmosphere. No one was left sat down – all dancing away on the dance floor all night.
