This weekend saw me travel only a couple of minutes away to the next village Helperby / Brafferton for the wedding blessing of Dorota & Tom at St Peter’s Church. Dorota & Tom married two weeks ago in Poland, and Saturday was their English equivalent wedding. Dorota is Polish and came to work in the UK for Tom’s dad Richard on his farm a few years ago. Spilman’s produce soft fruit including strawberries, raspberries, and gooseberries among others, and Dorota came to pick fruit for the farm which is where she met Tom. Both Dorota & Tom now live in Helperby so it was fitting to hold a lovely country wedding blessing in Tom’s home village at the local church, followed by a reception dinner in the local village hall. A village hall which incidentally was completely transformed into a stunning setting for a reception dinner.
The weather stayed fine for them and for the time of year was very pleasant. With a black tie dress code, it really was a lovely day. At the request of Dorota & Tom, the format of the photographs was completely candid, to simply capture what happened for the most part. A selection of highlights from their wedding day is below for you to enjoy:
