Rockliffe Hall Wedding Photography – Alex and Mark’s wedding took place in June and it most have been the very first hot day of the year, with perfect blue skies, every brides dream on her Wedding Day.
Alex started her day at her family home on the outskirts of Ripon, where her, sister Jodie, mum and the flower girls all had their hair expertly styled and make up done by the Deborah Chalmers from Love Hair & Beauty Boutique of Ripon. The flowers which were very delicate pastel shades were beautifully arranged by Sheila Danby Flowers of Ripon. Alex’s stunning dress was supplied by Hayley Dennison Bridal Collection of Harrogate.
Stan met up with the guys, who all looked very smart in their Moss Bros suits, at Bedale Church where they were sorting out buttonholes, orders of service and greeting guests as they arrived.
As well as wedding fever, the beautiful North Yorkshire village of Bedale was struck by Tour de France fever. With “Le Grand Depart” information all over and yellow bikes of one description or another in nearly every shop window. If it hadn’t been for this bustling Market Place Saturday traffic, Alex would have been on time, but she arrived 5 minutes “fashionably” late. The ceremony at the Family church of St Gregory‘s, Bedale was conducted by Rev. Ian Robinson.
After confetti throwing at the church the newly weds were transported to Rockliffe Hall in an old fashioned Bentley supplied by Keith Snowdon Wedding Cars of Ripon. On arrival at the beautiful Rockliffe Hall, Alex and Mark were greeted by Master of Ceremonies, Robert and served arrival drinks by the Rockliffe Hall Team.
The couple then greeted and chatted to their guests on the terraces taking in the beautiful garden and surrounding views. They then headed over to the Rockliffe Suite, which was beautifully dressed as ever by Simply Bows and Chair Covers and all the wedding stationery was supplied by Noble Fine Art. Mark & Alex didn’t opt for a traditional wedding cake, but had a cake table, the delights on which were supplied by the very talented Bernadett of Dreamworld Cakes.
Alex and Mark were honeymooning in Sri-Lanka and the Maldives. Here are a selection of their lovely Rockliffe Hall Wedding Photography images but for more images click here
