Anna and Liam had a beautifully homemade outdoor wedding at Ox Pasture Hall, near Scarborough. Anna and her mum spent hours making things for the wedding beforehand, from the 100 metres of bunting her mum made to the stationery for the day itself. Anna saved money on flowers by making her own arrangements with more help from her mum, and spent many a weekend scouring car boot sales for vintage crockery and china to decorate tables.
Images are by lovely husband and wife team Colin Murdoch Studio, based in North Yorkshire.
This is a really lovely wedding – I adore Anna’s dress, and it’s great to see the guys in waistcoats without jackets for a change! The details are lovely, the venue just perfect… and the bunting looks fantastic! Huge congratulations to a beautiful bride and gorgeous groom, and thanks to Heather and Colin at Colin Murdoch Studio for sharing the images with us all today. Enjoy!
