Your Yorkshire Wedding - January/February 2024 (Issue 64)

A special mention has to go to our photographer Tom Benson. We aren’t the type of people who enjoy having our photo taken and we certainly didn’t want to spend most of our day posing for them. Tom was seriously amazing, not only was he the lovely guy who made us feel so at ease but he captured the most amazing photos. He really is worth every penny. We were so lucky that we had the most amazing vendors. They all made the day so fantastic from the make-up and hair girls to the DJ, everyone involved was truly lovely. The whole day was amazing but the cake cutting stands out as one of the best bits. I’d purchased a sword for the groom as a wedding present and he was blown away with it. It now hangs in his office as a permanent reminder of the day. DJ Yorkshire (Bryn Towning) provided our evening entertainment, and was fantastic, one of the most dedicated DJs I’ve ever seen. He took note of the details from the day and ended the night with the Pokémon theme tune, which for us was perfect! He really is Yorkshire’s best DJ! Magician Rich Reynolds entertained our guests throughout the drinks reception, and they all raved about how amazing he was. A highlight of the day and well worth the money.
