Rachel and Jonny have known each other all their lives because  their mum’s Jane and Susan have been best friends since they were little girls. So when they got together they had the feeling that it was just meant to be. They were married at Sutton Park at Sutton on Forest, York and held their wedding reception at The Rose and Crown, Sutton on Forest on Saturday. Their mum’s were involved with the wedding, doing a reading together during the ceremony, making speeches and Susan reading a lovely personal poem about their lives. Jane and Susan could not have looked more pleased and I got a lovely sequence of pictures of the two of them giggling and hugging.

Rachel loves heart shapes and she chose shades of purple and a heart theme for her wedding. The Rainflorist in York produced stunning bouquets of cream lilies and pinky purple and cappucino roses.

Rachel kept a wonderful scrapbook of ideas while she was planning her wedding

Rachel has a special friend who has been with her since the day she was born – Foxy. I could tell he was really special and took a picture for her with her wedding dress as a background

Charlotte and Alan, Jonny and Rachel, Guy and Anna have fun in the garden at The Rose and Crown.

Rachel chose a Betty’s Chocolate Ruffle cake as well as a traditional wedding cake – it smelled wonderful.

Really emotional speeches on Saturday.
