Claire and Paul got married at the Grand Canyon in June 2019 in a very private ceremony before celebrating with family and friends at the gorgeous Rudding Park in December.
Rudding Park in Harrogate, North Yorkshire is a wonderful venue – a privately owned luxury hotel set in 300 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland.
The Hotel and Spa is one of the first places the couple stayed together in their early relationship and is close to where Claire was born and brought up.
Claire still has close family nearby and so as one of their favourite places to stay and relax they wanted to share their special place with friends and family. Not to mention the beautiful chapel set within the hotel grounds.
Paul proposed to Claire on a New Year’s Eve at the strike of midnight on Holcombe Hill, Bury.
The hill has a popular monument on top called Peel Tower and is the perfect vantage point to watch the end of year fireworks from as far away as Manchester, Bolton & Rochdale. Paul went down on one knee on the moor and proposed with a Haribo ring.
Loyalty and love is important to the couple, who are passionate and fun loving. They love to make each other smile and laugh.
Their wedding blessing at Rudding Park was such a wonderful wedding party and Story Of Your Day was delighted to be chosen as their official wedding videographer.
As the couple explained: “You came highly recommended but also because your professional approach, yet very easy going nature gave us great confidence that you would understand our need for something tasteful and different.”
