A truly stunning natural location, Castle Howards Boathouse is the most gorgeous place to have your country wedding.

Lyndsay and Paul met on match.com – they were 100% match for each other. You only have to meet them to know its true. They share an amazing sense of humour, they are both are so much fun and both incredibly generous in spirit. Once you have spent any time in their company you feel like you have known them forever! One of the things they matched 100% for was their love of film. This was one of the themes of the wedding day – their cake was in the shape of a cinema. Created by their friend Colin (who makes models for films) it was a model replica of a picture house including foyer and their names lit up in lights outside. Yes! The cake had lights!!

There were so many beautiful, personal little details to their day. Lyndsay and Paul made all the hearts that were hung on the back of the chairs and hand printed them with the words “May the 4th be with you”. Paul loves the fact that they got married on Star Wars Day – being a big fan.

Lyndsay and Paul held the first ever wedding at The Boathouse at Castle Howard. They exchanged vows on the decking overlooking the lake. Paul placed a beautiful diamond wedding band on to Lyndsay’s finger promising ” with this bling I thee wed”!!  A pair of swans on the lake chose the same moment to perform their beautiful courtship ritual.

We cruised on the lake in Castle Howard’s vintage wooden boat, swallows flew all around us in the  later afternoon sunshine. Guests enjoyed drinks on the decking. It was beautiful.
