Tim and Kath - Bolton Castle, North Yorkshire

Bolton Castle is an amazing venue with awesome views over Wensleydale and holds a special place in my heart as I used to live in a little cottage right next door !It is one of the country’s best preserved medieval castles; originally built as one of the finest and most luxurious homes in the land, the castle bears the scars of over 600 years of fascinating history. The castle is still in the private ownership of Lord Bolton, the direct descendant of the castle’s original owner Sir Richard le Scrope. One of it's many guests was Mary Queen of Scots who was imprisoned here.

Tim and Kath put lots of thought into this wedding. There was a hint of vintage, some modern and a nod to the medieval which all came together to form a very special day.

As with most of my couples Tim and Kath were keen not to have lots of posed pictures and wanted lots of natural shots to tell a real story of their day.

I started the day at The Bolton Arms in Redmire which used to be my local ! Kath was getting ready here with her bridesmaids.

Gorgeous bouquet from Love Bouquets

Very cute shoes !

Cheers girls

Time to be fastened into that beautiful dress

As I made my way to the castle I could see all the guests arriving on the bus from Yorkshire Heritage Bus company so I dashed ahead to get a shot and Tim leaned out of the bus to say hello !

Such and amazing building.....
