The Grand Hotel and Spa in York was the perfect setting for Samantha and Lee’s ‘Afternoon Tea’ themed wedding. The luxurious hotel is located right in the centre of York and only a short walk from some of the most well known architectural landmarks in the city. Samantha and Lee were keen to incorporate some of these into their wedding photographs so we headed out, firstly visiting the York Museum Gardens. This has to be one of my favourite places to photograph couples in York on their wedding day. The magnificent Roman Ruins there create dramatic yet romantic images to treasure for a lifetime. From there we moved onto York Minster and finally we finished on a high standing on the city’s Roman Walls. From there you can capture an amazing shot of York, with York Minster and the hotel itself in the background.
Samantha and Lee’s wedding reception was a relaxed Afternoon Tea party complete with tea cup and saucer centre pieces, delicate miniature cakes and a magician to keep everyone throughly entertained. Make sure you take a look at their fabulous wedding cake!
Such a lovely wedding to photograph and such a lovely couple. Below are just a few of my favourite photos from their big day.
