This was an entrance that had everyone laughing, and I mean crying with laughter – which was kind of the theme of the whole Bev and Suzanne wedding weekend!

Imagine everyone sitting, fanning themselves with their order of service trying to keep cool in the library of the lovely Swinton Park Hotel in North Yorkshire.  The Most Reverend Jonathan Blake, quietly entered the room, welcomed everyone, and then announced the couple.  The traditional wedding march chimed up for a few bars then, “zrrrrp”, it stopped,  followed by “Here Come The Girls”, loud and proud!  The Bishop then launched into an amazing funky dance routine!  Not just a little jig, oh no, this was a full-on routine followed by Suzanne and Bev and their respective brothers.  Talk about making an entrance – this was brilliant!

What with guided walks, horse riding, shooting, falconry and of course, more partying, this was an action-packed weekend.  Party on Beverley and Suzanne!

Richard & Carla met at his house warming party – they were new neighbours. I can imagine Richard popping round every five minutes to borrow something as an excuse to see Carla.  ”Could I possibly borrow a cup of sugar?”, “Can I have my ball back please?” and eventually “will you marry me?”!

People travelled from Chile, Spain, and as far away as Harrogate to be with Richard & Carla as they celebrated their marriage at Harewood House in Leeds ,and, for once, the Yorkshire weather did us proud.

It was a Hunanist ceremony with most of the readings spoken in both English and Spanish.  The Spanish influence continued at the reception with banging on the tables and chants of ‘Bésala, Bésala!’ – kiss her kiss her.  Which of course he happily obliged!  In fact, as a wedding photographer, I have never seen a couple kiss so much!

The stately surroundings of Harewood House echoed with Latin Salsa music as the evening party rounded off a fantastic day for Richard and Carla. Vamos!
