Alastair & Jessica’s black tie wedding in Yorkshire, with Abraham Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

An elegant, sophisticated East Yorkshire wedding from talented local photographer Abraham Photography. We’ve loved discovering The Manor Rooms – a venue we haven’t seen on English Wedding before! Jessica is just beautiful in her dress with stunning shoulder detail, and we adore all the cute personal touches. Congratulations to a gorgeous couple, and big thanks to lovely Abraham Photography for sharing the images with us all!

Wedding photographer review

Very attentive throughout the day and ensured our needs were met, whilst balancing the time we also needed to spend with guests.

Venue name + review

The Manor Rooms – Good location for Alastair’s family. Stunning location in the countryside with beautiful views across the fields. Modern venue purposely designed and built for hosting such events.

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

Alastair – I chose to go down the formal black tie route. After struggling to find the exact fit of suit, I got upsold into having one custom made. I enjoyed the experience and have a great suit that will last a long time!

Jessica – Found the right dress immediately at the same shop as her twin sister used for her wedding dress! Having it tailored to fit exactly was a stressful experience having lost some weight since the first fitting!

Florist name + review

We used a local florist in Hornsea called “The Flowerbox”. They did a great job with our chosen colour scheme and came in with a good deal for us.

Cake maker name + review

The cake was made locally in Hornsea, and illustrated our story on the different tiers, and each tier was a different type / flavours of cake. So far only one tier has been eaten (a fantastic chocolate cake), with the others frozen for future events.

Any crafty projects or homemade styling touches?

It was important to have our dog (a Pug) involved in the day. She ended up in a custom made dog dress and walked down the aisle with the bridesmaids!

Wedding readings?

We had a family friend (who works as a Chaplain) who did a personal blessing, with readings written by herself. This was an important part of our whole wedding experience.

First dance song? Playlist recommendations?

Beyond the Sea by Kina Grannis. It was chosen as we met whilst both working at sea.
