Spring is here and the sun is shining, and for the Dave Spink Photography Team there was no better way to spend an April wedding than at the regal Allerton Castle for the wedding of Taneisha and Joel.
The day began for the photo and video team by joining Taneisha as she got ready at Wood Hall near Wetherby. It was great to see some familiar names there with suppliers like Adrienne florists who were based just up the road from our old office. It seemed like in no time at all everyone was ready and Taneisha was putting on her beautiful wedding dress which earned a few tears from her father as he caught his first glimpse of his daughter as a bride.
Meanwhile, the rest of the team headed across to meet Joel and his groomsmen at the castle, where they passed the time leading up to the ceremony in the very popular Billiards room.
Before long, Taneisha made her way over to the castle in an elegant vintage car, where Joel and Hunter were waiting for her at the end of the aisle.
Candles lined the grand staircase, as "Tiggy" and her Father walked down to the sweet symphony of the string quartet playing. The fairy lights up above twinkled as the couple exchanged their vows with baby Hunter included in the very special moment.
Once they were pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds made their way out into the courtyard by the pond and arches where they performed Sabrage to celebrate their tying the knot.
With the magnificent grounds of the castle, the team had some great opportunities for photos, making use of the extensive gardens to capture the memories for a wonderful couple and their family and friends. All the guests gathered together for one final group shot immediately prior to the meal.
As the evening progressed, the Light Up Letters arrived, along with their photo booth to keep the guests entertained. After speeches were wrapped up, the couple and their guests headed out into the grand hall to begin the evening reception with a first dance to "Woman" by John Lennon.
The evening for the team drew to a close with fireworks lighting up the castle and putting a beautiful memory on a wonderful night. The team headed off to leave Joel and Taneisha to continue dancing the night away with all their guests, and we can imagine a fabulous time was had by all - the dance floor certainly wasn't empty for a minute!
Joel & Taneisha, it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your wedding day! All here at Dave Spink Photography wish you the very best for your life together, congratulations!
