A wedding dressmakers Wedding! Awesome lives here.
Rebecca and Chris were married by Rev Catherine at a lovely church in Haxby, York then traveled by vintage bus to The De Grey Rooms in central york for the party. A sun drenched courtyard of The Theatre Royal was used for the drinks reception with music from the incomparable Karl Mullen on his famous Red Busking Piano.
Rebecca is half of the ridiculously stylish Smith & Downes who design and make beautiful and elegant pieces for ladies with impecible taste, they also offer a couture, made to measure bespoke bridal service. I can vouch for their services as in the past they have made a dress for Mrs P based entirely on a tattoo of mine, with frankly stunning results.
Event planning at the venue was from Lindsay Whitwell, who I love and not just because she's barely 5ft tall and has a smile that can stop traffic.
Hair for the ladies was by the very talented Louise of Yorkshire Bridal Hair and lush flowers were from Fleuradamo
I knew I'd love this wedding so I traveled there on my bike, you know, so I could properly join in. Being a wedding photographer in York (a small city) does have its advantages :o)
For the bride and groom's perspective, see my testimonial page where they left me a message :o)
ps the close up of the bridesmaids bust is only partly gratuitous as they each had a unique button made for their outfits. Rebecca asked me to document them, honestly she did.
