Mr & Mrs Hardys Wedding at Fountains Abbey was so special on many levels for everyone who was there. For me, it brought back childhood memories! As a child, my Mum and Dad would often take me to Fountains Abby.
I would spend hours exploring the grounds pretending to be Indian Jones.
For Mr & Mrs Hardy, it was and is a special place to go with their children, it’s a place they could go and have family time and enjoy the historic grounds, it is a place they could go to enjoy picnics, and most of all it was their dream wedding location!
Their wedding day started in Harrogate, at Bobby Browns for makeup, and the staff had come in extra early just so they could fit the bridal party in.
The next stage of Bridal preparations was back at the White Hart Hotel & Apartments, the apartment rooms here were fantastic, with plenty of nice light coming in through the windows making it easy to create beautiful dreamy portraits.
Once Bridal preparations were finished, it was time to head to Fountains Abbey for the wedding service.
The wedding service was being held in the historic Fountains Hall, which is located inside the Abby Grounds. Once again the light was so amazing inside the ceremony room, I feel it added a very spiritual feeling to the service.
Once the service had finished inside Fountains Hall we headed to the herb gardens for wedding canopies and champagne and two more very special ceremonies.
