Marrying at St Michael Le Belfry church under the shadow of York Minster on Saturday were Rob and Gail. The day started at Robs mum’s farm for shots of the guys before they left for church and we left to join Gail at The Royal York Hotel as she prepared for the wedding day. Gail, her bridesmaids and friends were preparing in a suite at The Royal York where as we arrived Gail was about to step into her wedding dress, exactly to schedule! This gave us time for some great photos around the stair cases and pillars of the hotel a great backdrop for the photographs.

Typical York traffic made the short journey to church barely above walking pace, however Gail managed to arrive exactly on time for the 1330 ceremony bringing the area around York Minster to a halt as the many tourists all stopped to watch and in many cases photograph Gail and her father as they left the car.

Following the wedding ceremony we headed off to the Minster steps for a large group photograph of all the wedding guests before they had some time to explore York, check in to their hotels before a big red bus departed the city centre for the farm and wedding reception.  During the large group photograph, one of the wedding themes quickly became apparent as guests donned a number of different hats ranging from fishing to lifeguard to top hats! The silly hats competition had begun!

The photographs below include many that were displayed on the large screen display during the evening reception.
