Jane & Matthew | York
18th September 2014
Jane & Matthew's wedding was a bit different to the usual - in a VERY good way!
My day started at their home in York, to shoot Jane's bridal preparations - and it wasn't long 'til Matthew arrived…there's difference number one! Jane & Matthew had been officially married earlier in the week and it was really lovely to have Matthew around for some of the morning - plus it meant we could sneak in some couple portraits before we even arrived at the venue, which was a fabulous teepee in the parkland of Escrick Park.
Difference number two - Jane & Matthew are vegans (have a look at their website: www.veganuary.com). The food was therefore all vegan (you would never have guessed from the look or the taste! Delicious), the table names all animals with stories to tell and they even had a table with books and leaflets offering information on animal welfare and being a vegan. Animal welfare, especially in the farming industry, is something I am quite passionate about (don't get me started!) so I absolutely loved this theme and managed to flick through a few leaflets in a spare minute!
"The Boy With Tape On His Face" was the third difference - I have never seen a comedy show like it! As an act Jane and Matthew went to see on their first date, it was only right that he be the entertainment at their wedding. The show was absolutely hilarious, everybody loved it and it was a great way of getting everybody together to have a good laugh at some of the guests expense!
The fun and laughter didn't die down and as the egg and spoon races and football commenced, the sun finally showed in time for a few final shots, bathed in beautiful light. A fantastic wedding, full of fun. Congratulations Jane & Matthew, a beautiful couple both inside and out.
