We’ve split this wedding over 2 posts as Kat & James’s Harrogate wedding was a pretty long day with 2 drinks receptions, the first in Knaresborough and the other at the reception proper, The Sportsman’s Arm’s near Pateley Bridge in the Nidderdale Valley.
I first met the couple about a year or so back and just new that rain or shine, they were going to have an absolutely cracking wedding, simply because of the people they are. And so they did.
It began with the usual bridal prep, on this occasion at the bride’s parents house in Knaresborough with the ceremony conducted by the very welcoming Rev. Andrew Pierse at St John’s church.
Post-ceremony, the first drinks reception took place on a terrace opposite the church overlooking Nidd Gorge and the iconic Knaresborough viaduct over the River Nidd.
