Ryan and Claire get married. A Christmas wedding at The Falcon Manor in Settle North Yorkshire

January 19, 2018

I've known Claire for some years now. We met because of her son Harry who is a beautiful angel up in heaven. Harry was with us tho and he made the sun shine on this wonderful wedding day. Claire is a lovely lady who copes with so much on a daily basis; she runs her own business, takes care of her daughter Lily and looks after her poorly Mum, but she will always greet you with a big smile. Claire, Ryan, Lily and Mum share a beautiful home in Eldroth, along with a couple of hens. Claire got ready at home and it was only a short drive to the tiny chapel in Eldroth for the wedding ceremony. Claire looked beautiful in her blush coloured gown from Ava Rose Hamilton. She joined her handsome groom at the alter and managed her vows despite a horrible cough and cold. Brother Stephen gave her away, but Dad was there in spirit. After the ceremony it was onto The Falcon Manor in Settle for the reception, where Claire and Ryan had exclusive use of this beautiful venue. The golden winter light lasted just long enough for some photos to be captured in the grounds. Guests mingled with festive mulled wine and mince pies before it was into the dining room for the wedding breakfast. The room looked amazing and had been styled by Sam Williams with antique books, glass and feathers, all very rustic and very Claire and Ryan! Sam also made Claire's epic bouquet; there was not an actual flower in sight! It was crafted from dried flowers, foliage and feathers; dad's tie added a wonderful flourish and made the perfect momento. After the wedding breakfast, Claire's brother, Stephen, made the most beautiful speech and everyone was also touched by Claire's emotional tribute to all those she loves. Claire and her girlfriends had a quick freshen up in the Honeymoon suite, which is enormous! They also had a quick jump on the bed, as you do!! Towards the end of the night there were sparklers outside, it was a very romantic end to a beautiful day! 

It was a pleasure to work with Harrison and Natasha from Harrison Films again.
