Yesterday I joined Lindy & Tim for their beautiful wedding at at The Merchant Adventurer’s Hall in York.

As Lindy & Tim were both getting ready only a short walk from Central York, we decided to park up near the Hall and walk through York to set the scene.

York’s a beautiful place, all the more so when the sun’s out

Always nice to swing by the Shambles for that classic York shot too.

I arrived at Hotel Noir and could see Lindy & the gang already getting down with the prosecco

I know Lindy from school years, and it was fun to see a whole load of familiar faces at the wedding.

A few little details of the bridal bits.  Loving the sparkly All Stars for dance time!

The little flower girls were adorable too, watching aristocats as they had their hair done…

Meanwhile, Hamish wandered over to the guys rented apartment to catch a few shots of the chaps preps.

Tim’s is a great laugh and the chaps seemed to have a fun morning.

Top calls on the Vans/socks/aviator combo!

The wedding ceremony & reception were to hosted at The Merchant Adventurer’s Hall, an ancient Guild Hall, almost hidden between two main roads of central York.

It was once one of the most important buildings in the medieval city, put together by influential adventurer tradesfolk who were later titled ‘The Mistry of Mercers’.

Don’t know about you, but I want to be a professional adventurer in a Mystry.

Here’s the man, ready for action.

[sidenote: I do like that they didn’t wear ties – just makes it all feel more chilled]

The Great Hall is a timber-framed structure that apparently took over a five years to build.

It is the largest timber-framed building in the UK still standing and used for its original purpose.  The floor is also hilariously wonky and creaky.

Back at Hotel Noir, however, time was ticking on and it was time to gown up

Love the little birdcage head piece.  I don’t see these much also, and think they’re not only more practical than a 15ft veil, but much more interesting.

Nice to see dad having a quiet moment admiring his daughter on her big day

I like the reassuring hand on the back of this shot from Tim’s best man

Tim & Lindy read sweet vows they’d written as they exchanged rings.

Lindy’s best school buds wrote a fun poem to read too

After making things official it was time to head down the aisle as man & wife

It was great fun also to see Laura & Nick again, who’s wedding I photographed at the Angel at Hetton in November 2012 (blog here).

Laura is an amazing Cake Designer and designed Lindy & Tim’s cake that you’ll see later.

After huddling up for a quick shot of everyone, everyone blew bubbles for a a bit of ‘bubble-fetti’ action

Then we worked through a whole bunch of family groups…

…ending with a bit of fun with the wedding party.

Then it was nice to get a bit of quiet time with Lindy & Tim in the gardens for a few relaxed portraits…

Then it was back to the party, while I nipped inside to photograph the great hall, all set for the wedding meal

Pretty stunning room eh?

Liking the festival wristbands!

And apparently Lindy & Dad are notoriously messy eaters, so aprons were provided!

Tim & Lindy are keen snowboarders, and he proposed to her on the slops at Coutalays – so this the wonderful snowy creation Laura Cook cooked up!

All the best speeches feature the groom drinking from a shoe.

Then it was time for the first dance, which brought out the former ballerina in Lindy!

Aww.

Then it was time to slip on the All Stars & get down and party
