Wedding Photography Middleton Lodge | Amiee and Phil | Yorkshire Wedding Photography by And Ever After Photography
Middleton Lodge wedding photography by And Ever After Photography. Middleton Lodge was the perfect setting for the wedding of Aimee and Phil. I have to say that Aimee was one of the coolest, calmest most chilled brides I have ever worked with. I first caught up with Aimee, with her mum and bridesmaids early in the day, whilst the bridal preparations were in full swing. Phil had sent along a bottle of Moet as well as some strawberries for the girls to enjoy whilst hair and makeup was being done.
The wedding ceremony was taking place in the inner hall of Middleton Lodge with the wedding breakfast in the marquee which is in the magnificent grounds of Middleton Lodge. The marquee was decorated with bunting and fresh cut country flowers. It was very much in the theme of village country life, which is exactly what Aimee and Phil were looking for. There were even small gifts of pots of honey and seeds for bees placed on the tables. This was a lovely touch as Phil is a beekeeper and Aimee is now the proud owner of her very own beekeeping suit! Aimee and Phil enjoy a wide range of outdoor interests, walking, hill climbing and kayaking amongst others, so it was no surprise that their signing board was an actual surfboard.
Phil arrived in plenty of time and was well looked after by his two best men and ushers, before taking his place ready for the ceremony to start. Aimee looked stunning in her wedding dress and her dad Peter was brimming with pride as he walked her down to join Phil. The ceremony was perfect with two readings and several tears shed by friends and family watching on (Keecia!).
As the sun shone well into the afternoon gin and tonics and canapes were served on the lawns of the Lodge while Aimee and Phil (now Mr and Mrs Jones) had their photographs taken whilst they mingled with their guests.
Then it was into the marquee for the speeches and toasts, followed by the wedding breakfast.
The celebrations continued into the evening with the bridal party and guests dancing the night away to the sound of The Atlantic Soul Messengers, a group whose style and songs was the backdrop to Aimee and Phil’s courtship days.
Middleton Lodge provided an excellent location to photograph Aimee and Phil’s wedding celebrations and here are some of the photographs of the day.
