Dan & Julie

Rogerthrope Manor Wedding

Dan & Julie had a sunny summer wedding at All Saints Church, with their reception at Rogerthorpe Manor, Pontefract.

On the morning of the wedding I met Julie and her Bridesmaids as they got ready for the day ahead. As hair and makeup was being done, the most beautiful summer flowers arrived. The colours contrasted with the navy blue bridesmaid dresses and stood out even more.

When everyone was ready we made our way to All Saints church. The church itself is unlike any other. During the Civil War it was left roofless and ruined before being re-built. In 1967 the new nave was constructed within the medieval surrounding. The remains of the old building have been left, and create part of the entrance to the church.

After the ceremony everyone travelled to Rogerthorpe Manor where the reception drinks were waiting. We had to wait a little while for the drizzle to blow over, but when it did everyone flooded outside for some group photographs.

Alongside the traditional images, this wedding party wanted to do something a little bit silly. The groomsmen found themselves jumping off walls while the bridal party watched on. The DIY photo booth that Dan & Julie had provided gave another opportunity for silly photographs, which everyone embraced.

Everyone was called in to the reception room for the wedding breakfast, but finding their place wasn’t as simple as you may think. Instead of name cards, Dan & Julie had found images of all the guests. Some were recent, some were from their childhood. It was a lovely personal touch and a fantastic talking point for the tables too.

During the speeches the best man brought out a life-size cardboard cut-out of Gary Linaker. When the evening party started Gary quickly made friends with the Hypertones and spent most of the evening dancing and partying with the band.
