Double the brides, double the fun! I don’t know if you remember the Doublemint Gum commercials, but the jingle rings true: two brides make for twice the amazing wedding photos! It was sincerely my pleasure to participate in their special day. I loved capturing memories from this Hotel du Vin Harrogate wedding.

It’s impossible to say who was the happiest or the most tearful while getting ready for the big moment. Everyone involved in the wedding of Lauren and Vicky had a smile that nearly outshone the sun for the entire day. It was such a pleasure to see two families truly become one. It was accomplished in the most beautiful way.

Lauren & Vicky’s wedding at Hotel du Vin in Harrogate

Vicky and Lauren were married in August in Harrogate, a sweet town nestled in North Yorkshire. This spa town boasts many features to appreciate, the most charming of them is the elegant Hotel Du Vin in the heart of Harrogate. The stately hotel hosted both the wedding and the reception. It also provided a lovely backdrop for the ladies as they prepared for their wedding in separate suites. Both the Robert Mondavi suite and the Moet Vintage Collection suite were charmingly appointed and bursting with the love of family.

The waterworks started when Lauren presented her mother with a lovely bracelet for the “Mother of the Bride” and continued as she gifted her father a set of beautiful lion cufflinks in the shape of a shield. This, naturally, paved the way for a touching ceremony and a reception full of deeply moving speeches toasting Vicky and Lauren.

Both brides wore stunning gowns that featured delicate beadwork and intricate lace, fastened with a tidy row of dainty covered buttons marching up the back. Together, they made a stunning and incredibly happy couple.

The ceremony itself was captivating and deeply emotional, bringing tears to the eyes of everyone present. The delicate bands that Lauren and Vicky exchanged were brought to the ceremony in charming little bucket carriers that they had made especially for the big day. These, along with the memories captured in the Polaroid Wedding Guestbook, will be sentimental keepsakes for the rest of their lives.

The reception was full of love, energy and music from a vintage jukebox. The Instax cameras made amazing wedding photo opportunities for the guests and kept the room lively throughout the evening! This wedding was one of the most beautiful and exciting opportunities I’ve ever had to provide my skills in wedding photography. I am so grateful to have been part of Lauren and Vicky’s wedding day!
