On Saturday Hamish & I joined Jenny & Paul for the wedding photography at their big day at The Crab & Lobster in Asenby, near Thirsk in stunning North Yorkshire.
After morning preparations in Thirsk, their ceremony was hosted in the boutiquey Crab Manor hotel in the grounds of the Crab + Lobster. I adore this place, as it’s bursting with offbeat design and dripping with nicknacks; such as bell diving suits & sporting paraphernalia, secret beer taps and a giant yeti who changes outfit every time I’m there. Rooms are themed, and are based around ski lodges, vegas hotels, the work of Andy Warhole or Laura Ashley etc. It’s brilliant fun to explore & part of me wishes I lived there!
After the packed ceremony in the conservatory, the reception was a fab time for these guys to celebrate with their pals, many of whom had travelled over from Australia, to which they’ve emigrated. Speeches were conducted outdoor (including one of the most hilariously cringe-inducing revelatory character assassinations by the best man, that I may have ever witnessed!), and afterwards, a bit of Aus culture was nodded to with an evening BBQ, down at the infamous gastropub, the Crab + Lobster.
The evening turned into a brilliantly riotous affair, with our photobooth props getting abused on the dancefloor & even a family singalong of ‘Hey Ho’ by the Lumineers!
I hope you enjoy their wedding story!
Fabulous fun hey?! Here’s wishing Jenny & Paul a fantastic life together and an amazing honeymoon in Tanzania!
