Crab and Lobster Wedding Photographer North Yorkshire – North East based Avant Garde Photography photographs the wedding of Georgina & Michael at North Yorkshire Wedding Venue The Crab Manor Hotel in Thirsk.
Crab and Lobster Wedding Photographer – Avant Garde Photography asked Georgina and Michael to share more about their big day at the Crab and Lobster!
The Crab & Lobster
We picked the venue as we were looking for something stylish, sophisticated and intimate for our wedding. Set in beautiful grounds Crab Manor is everything we hoped for and very private. Quirky features in the pavilion and the hotel kept the guest entertained – not least the Yetti in the Manor House!!! The grounds have blossom trees and beautiful plants creating a beautiful backdrop for many of our photos.
The Grooms Shoes
They were from Jeffery Wests in an Aubergine Polish.
The Grooms suit
From Changes Middlesbrough, made by Remus, a three piece in light grey.
The Brides Dress
Elizabeths of York, Benjamin Roberts style 2158
This dress was not what I had originally looked for – but it suited the old style feel of the venue… Not to big and perfect for my intimate family wedding. A halter neck slim A line gown in dark ivory satin
Adam was recommended to us by a friend. We are so pleased we found him! I had some ideas of the colour and type of flowers I wanted but Adam blew us away with his creations. He is a true professional, a little eccentric and totally knows his trade. My bouquet was fantastic, a trailing sophisticated bouquet that matched my dress perfectly. All the guest commented on the beautiful table arrangements and the smell was divine in the dining room.
This was really Michaels choice – we wanted something quirky and fun. Vicky Begley from Truly Scrumptious created the masterpiece in beautiful pastel colours to suit the theme of the wedding.
TaylorMade Acoustic Duo
We found the band on the internet –we were looking for some music in the day and evening. Our venue was quite small so a large band would not have worked – the duo were exactly what we wanted and everyone was dancing all night!!
Koh Samui, Thailand and Bangkok
We found paradise at our sea view panoramic villa at The Silavadee Resort, Koh Samui. It was everything we hoped for and more. Total luxury, relaxation and plenty of sun!! 3 nights in Bangkok was a lovely contrast, the hustle and bustle of a busy city.
We found Roger on the internet. At our initial meeting we viewed his portfolio and were very impressed. Our pre-wedding shoot was fantastic – a huge contrast to the type of pictures we would have for the wedding – As we are Teessider’s we opted for some industrial shots to link in our heritage! They were excellent. The wedding photographs were even better. Roger is a true professional and always gets his shot! We have so many photos to choose from this has been the hardest part. A lovely touch is getting all the photographs on disc so we have been able to print out our favourite shots and give them to family members as a memento of our special day. I would certainly recommend Roger to anyone looking for a classic album, beautiful photographs and a relaxed approach to taking them!!
