Emily and Chris’ Saltmarshe Hall wedding photography was brilliant! I can totally say that when Gary Barlow made an appearance. 100% true – Gary Barlow! All the hotels near Saltmarshe were excited – which would get the honour of putting him up overnight?! But, he chose a local stables. Gary Barlow the llama! Didn’t I mention that? Courtesy of Nidderdale llamas, everyone wanted a photo! It truly was a Yorkshire themed wedding since they’d travelled all the way to Howden, Yorkshire from the Yorkshire Dales! The envy of all wedding venues Hull.

Seriously though, llamas aside, Emily and Chris’ wedding was truly beautiful. From a calm and loving bridal prep, where everyone helped each other out, to their church wedding, every detail was perfect. With the drive from church to Saltmarshe, we crossed East Yorkshire‘s finest and River Ouse. With their creative input flourish of the llamas awaiting everyone at the venue, it was smiles and selfies all around! Although Saltmarshe Hall is licensed for weddings – and they only hold a wedding a day – having a church wedding and then reception is perfect. Plus we were able to take time at the church and the venue for some couple photos.

The greenery of Saltmarshe Hall, especially in the late summer, is perfect for wedding photography. So many different places we could go for gorgeous backdrops and quiet places. We captured some really sweet couple photos, before making our way to the guests for those all important moments – confetti and cake. I can’t help but think Chris planned how his face was going to look in advance! Also, the famous roll top bath made an appearance in the blog too…. not what you’d expect!

Not a drama llama in sight!
