Ripley Castle Weddings / Hannah & Tom Tie The Knot

Ripley Castle weddings are some of my favourites. This North Yorkshire wedding venue has it all. Hannah & Tom’s wedding day had it all – apart from snow! Even though our bride would have liked a snowy winterland wedding, it was one of the warmest days this winter in North Yorkshire.

An organised, be-prepared kinda gal, Hannah and her mum brought their snow boots but more on their footwear later. A lot of their family and friends were grateful for the dry Yorkshire weather as many had an early start for travel ‘up North’.  In her speech, Hannah thanked her new husband for his dedication to their relationship and for leaving his Nottingham home and family to settle in York when she was awarded a coveted post at York University.

As agreed with the new Mrs Dixon, here’s a little snack of their wedding day.

 With heartfelt thanks to my right-hand man, award winning Commercial & Advertising Photographer, Tony May from Leeds who took some marvellous pictures like the one above of the scene that awaited the soon-to-be-marrieds.

Bridal preparations began at Hollybank, just across from the Boar’s Head in Ripley. With hair almost ready, our bride begins her make-up. More on the bunny coming up.

And here’s our groom! He was spotted arriving bang on time by his bride-to-be, who had given him a schedule to follow. This included just 30 minutes for him to get ready! Yes, he managed it all.
