Maruzzella & Ben’s joyously real wedding at Goldsborough Hall, with York Place Studios
When the planning is done and the guests on their way, all you want to do is enjoy your day – and gorgeous couple Maruzzella and Ben did just that! The happiness just shines from their wedding photos, which tell the story of their day so beautifully. The happy pair married at Goldsborough Hall in Yorkshire and chose award winning photographers York Place Studios to capture their best day ever.
We do love a black-tie wedding – especially for a church and stately home setting, the look is just fabulous. Maruzzella’s all-over-lace wedding dress is absolutely stunning, and along with the elegant floral styling and that amazing calla lily bouquet this wedding oozes luxury and elegance. But it’s the story that wins our hearts. The little glances from bridesmaids and parents, and the look of love shared between the bride and groom… they’re what make our hearts sing!
Weddings are never just about the couple. As much as we adore those loved-up shots of our brides and grooms on English Wedding, it’s the interactions between wedding guests that are always fascinating. In this wedding we stopped our scrolling for proud parents, massive heartfelt hugs and belly laughs. Oh, and there’s always a little humour in the best wedding photos, so watch out for babies with little baby opinions on events, and other little ones supping OJ from champagne flutes. This is pure documentary wedding photography at its best and it’s just brilliant!
This is a wedding from the summer of 2019, when we were all free to hug, and laugh, and dance and sing our hearts out with no restrictions at weddings. I know all of my wedding photographer friends are back out there capturing amazing celebrations again this summer, and it fills me with joy to know weddings are back.
What makes every wedding unique is the couple at the centre of it all. It’s their personalities, the friends they gather around them and the families who shaped their lives. And yet, these are the things that every wedding shares: the connections between people and the moments that make life so bloody amazing. Without gushing too much… I love publishing our York Place Studios weddings because they capture this essence of a wedding like no other photographers can.
