Yorkshire Wedding Barn Wedding, Richmond, UK – Raj & Kate
What can we say about the Yorkshire Wedding Barn in Richmond? If you haven’t been there yet and are looking for a wedding venue then go. Go right away and check it out! It is the perfect venue for the couple looking for a bit of charm mixed with a bit of rustic. The stone barn itself, brings something a little different to the more traditional manor house style wedding, yet it is still very neat and not too far down the ‘homemade look’ lane. The Yorkshire Wedding barn is nestled deep in the Yorkshire Dales near Richmond, with unspoilt views across the rolling green fields and hills. I don’t think we need question why Raj and Kate chose to marry here in spring, earlier this year.
With six bridesmaids, a male-maid and the father of the bride, Kate had a small army helping her get ready and walking her down the aisle that morning. Raj, not to be outshone, had his own four groomsmen at hand along with a large army of family members.
The wedding day couldn’t have run more smoothly. The couple were lucky enough to get married outdoors under The Yorkshire Wedding barn’s own stretch marquee. A confetti storm followed and then drinks and canapes were enjoyed outdoors under the terrace.
The speeches deserve a special mention at this wedding, as they were truly brilliant. Just the right balance of humour, facts and heartfelt topics from all of the speakers. If we had to pick, it was the best man who stole the show. He told stories of his best friend, the Groom, being absolutely brilliant at everything that he put his hands too and outshining the poor best man in almost every area. Including representing Great Britain at the 2016 Summer Olympics in the badminton Men’s Singles! (Sorry Raj, couldn’t let this blog post pass without raving about this achievement).
The evening celebrations began with a traditional first dance followed by a mix of lively well known songs that got everyone on their feet, including the elderly relatives. Then the contrast hit and the band switched it up into a punjabi party which lifted the roof. There was not a single person sitting! Guests changed into the traditional punjabi dress and the Bride and Groom had a dress change too. We even got our dancing shoes on!
The photos speak for themselves for this spring Yorkshire Barn wedding, here are some of our favourites from the wedding of Raj & Kate.
