We wanted a relaxed, boho and fun wedding. We’re not very formal people and we love to have fun so for us we wanted it to feel like minimal fuss and for everyone to have a blast.

Anna and Jonathan created a bohemian, romantic wedding day at Jervaulx Abbey in Yorkshire. The Cistercian Abbey was a stunning backdrop to the outdoor garden ceremony with guests throwing rose petal confetti before drinking champagne and exploring the overgrown ruins. The teepee provided a relaxed atmosphere & a welcome retreat from the torrential rain showers! I loved shooting around the beautiful grounds of Jervaulx Abbey. The perfect venue for a relaxed Yorkshire wedding.

My favourite moment was Jonathan’s speech. Jon can be quite shy and I know that he had been so busy with work in the run up to the wedding that he was struggling to find the time to write it. The speech was funny and also very beautfiul. I loved every moment of it.

Anna’s words of wisdom for future brides:

Have fun, it will be stressful but on the day whatever you do don’t stress about a thing as it flies by and you’ll be sad when it’s over.
