Wyresdale Park Wedding Photography – Caylin & David
We had the absolute pleasure of photographing Caylin & David’s wedding, at the beautiful Wyresdale Park in Scorton, Lancashire earlier this year.
It was great to see some familiar faces among the guests of this amazing group of friends, as well as get to know some new ones too. We were one of the first to photograph in the newly refurbished barns, and we absolutely loved every second of it. From the vast mezzanine-balconied barn space heated by an enormous log burner, to the converted animal-shed bar (complete with original floors and feeders in place!), this is truly a fantastic place for a laid back, rustic wedding with endless personality and charm.
We met Caylin getting ready in the kitchen of the beautiful manor house. Meanwhile, family and friends were busy setting up the bar, preparing the food for the drinks reception, and transforming the space into something incredible.
The ceremony room was just stunning, and as Caylin & David were married, the spring light flooded into the barns. This gorgeous pair were welcomed as Mr & Mrs with an enormous amount of confetti and cheers. This really set the mood for the rest of the day.
Caylin and David did such an amazing job organising the perfect wedding, that we asked to share a few wedding planning tips with you.
If you’re planning your wedding and want a relaxed, rustic and beautiful theme, then you HAVE to read this!
‘I would highly recommend the Striped Pig Company. They have been so professional and flexible throughout the process. They can do anything from a hog roast to a BBQ festival style buffet to a sit down 3 course meal and canapes!
Our florist Rebecca Graham from Branch and Belle has also been extremely patient and helpful. They gave great advice throughout the wedding planning process.
And let’s not forget our photographers who have also been flexible and super organised every step of the way!
We chose Wyresdale Park because we felt it echoed our relationship in some ways. The venue has a beautiful manor house on one side, A bean in the other, forest, a lake, hill walks, and glamping. David and I are quite different in personality. So, we felt the venue represented a part of each of us.
We’re also fairly laid back and wanted to create an environment where people could feel relaxed and enjoy the day. We also wanted to have the freedom to do our own thing with the venue, which Wyresdale Park accommodates.
My big tip would be don’t be afraid of doing a few things yourself, such as flowers and decorations. But also know your limits. A florist was arranged to do the button holes, corsages, bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, and centre pieces. But, we decided to decorate the barn ourselves.
We bought bulbs and grew them in pots to dress windows and the stairs with. We used some of the ivy in the forest nearby (with the suggestion from the venue) and any other greenery we can find.
Also don’t be afraid to ask people who’ve had a wedding in the last few months or years if they have anything from their wedding that you could borrow. We’ve saved quite a bit by borrowing some of our decorations because a friend of mine is getting married 6 weeks after us. Although she has borrowed the decorations from another friend who married last year.’
It was such a pleasure to be involved with your wedding day, and we can’t imagine a more fitting setting than Wyresdale Park. Enjoy the blog!
