Today I am thrilled to share this gorgeous Harry Potter inspired Yorkshire Wedding at Oulton Hall with mauve and grey details.
Images were captured by Anna Beth Photography.
Hannah of Anna Beth Photography is an award winning Yorkshire based wedding and elopement photographer.
Her photography is a mix of natural and elegant editorial style images, mixed with heartfelt, meaningful documentary style images.
She focuses on photographing beautiful, natural moments and creating elegant portraits as well as capturing all the fun and emotion throughout the day.
She says of the couples day…
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter (and really, who isn’t?!) then you’re going to love this wedding!
Sarah and Paul are huge fans of the boy wizard and used details from the books to bring a personal touch to their wedding decorations.
These two are such a lovely couple, they’d already told me that they don’t take things too seriously and their love of laughter really shone through on their wedding day.
They were keen to enjoy their day to the fullest with all their family and friends rather than spend too much time posing for photos so had got in touch with me as they loved my documentary approach to wedding photography.
I started the day with Sarah at her house. The music was on, everyone was having a giggle and Jodie Michele and Abi Thomas were working hard on the girls’ hair and makeup.
The kids were having a great time too! I love capturing bridal preparations when all the family are involved.
I am able to get to know people before the day’s events really start and it’s great to see the excitement building in everyone as the ceremony gets closer!
Sarah and Paul had chosen a grey and mauve colour scheme and the bridesmaids (and flowergirl) all looked amazing in their dresses.
Sarah’s dress was gorgeous too and came from Essence of Australia. I loved it and she looked so beautiful in it.
Flowers and Events by Cathryn had put together Sarah’s stunning bouquet as well as sorting out all the reception venue decor. She’s brilliant!
My second photographer Andrew spent some time with the lads as they got ready at Paul’s Dad’s house.
Although the atmosphere was slightly calmer there was still a real sense of anticipation and a few nerves from Paul!
There was the usual cry for help with ties and buttonholes…YouTube always comes in handy at this point!
Their ceremony took place at Longwood Church. Sarah’s Mum and Grandma had both got married here so it’s a really special place for the couple.
In a beautifully personal touch Sarah had a locket on her bouquet with a photo of her beloved Grandma in.…
Then it was off to Oulton Hall for the reception, and the venue is stunning!
The grounds are absolutely incredible and the room looked like something from a Hollywood movie. It was breathtaking!
As I’ve already mentioned Sarah and Paul had a few Harry Potter details dotted around. I love the Hogwarts Express wooden box which they used to hold confetti!
We also took time out to go for a wander around the gardens to take some relaxed portraits. These guys really do love to laugh together.
