Located in the heart of York, opposite the original city walls, The Grand Hotel is a sophisticated Edwardian hotel.
Lavishly decorated with velvet drapes, oak panel headboards and Egyptian cotton linen, if you're looking for a wedding venue with grandeur, this might be the venue for you.
I have a lot of love for this lovely couple, and their wedding day was uniquely them.
Caroline & George were always sure they wanted to have their photographs in their wedding attire in the city they loved. And York did not disappoint. A wedding photographer's dream. They got lots of attention as we strolled through the city, aided by the fact they are both on the tall side.
The beautiful architecture and history of the city, which make for incredible wedding photographs, will provide you with wonderful memories for years to come.
"What made the day special was the fact it was not a traditional wedding – it was exactly what we wanted"
"We both knew immediately that we wanted to get married in York"
Caroline & George met at work in York in 2014. You can tell they have the foundations of a solid relationship, and truly adore each other. George proposed in 2019 at Hipping Hall, their favourite boutique hotel. Apparently, Caroline had no idea of what was coming and couldn't stop crying.
The Grand Hotel, York was the perfect backdrop for their wedding. A string quartet set the mood as Caroline walked down the aisle, and confetti cannons were on hand
to get the celebrations started - I love those things, they make such a mess but look great in photos. You can see more of how these look further down the page.
With the Fondant Fancy three-tiered wedding cake from Betty's, the Groom and groomsmen in tweed suits, this wedding had York and Yorkshire at the centre of it. It was a real pleasure to be there to document the day and capture the memories.
"Sam was incredible – there were moments I completely forgot where he was but he was always there taking the most incredible photos of us and he has taken photos of us that we will look back on for the rest of our lives"
– CAROLINE & GEORGE
