Laura Gough and Tim White, aged 30 and 33 respectively, chose a blank canvas for their classic rustic wedding on June 10, 2017.

Photographer Arabella Smith says the couple’s relaxed approach was a perfect fit for her shooting style. “I can capture the day as it unfolds, capturing all those natural authentic moments,” she says. Their 150 guests were invited to the Blossom Barn in Holmfirth to celebrate. “We both wanted our wedding to be as relaxed as possible and we chose Blossom Barn as we love being in the countryside,” explains the bride. “Set on a Yorkshire hillside surrounded by fields and fantastic views, we had privacy and plenty of space.  The venue was very much a blank canvas, which meant lots of extra planning, but we loved that we could make our wedding day individual.”

An exchange of vows in the bar in front of a wall of glittering hanging lights was followed by a courtyard reception with drinks. From there, the party moved to the marquee in the adjoining field for the rustic barbecue breakfast and speeches. “An acoustic guitarist played throughout the day, which was the perfect reflection of our music tastes,” smiles Laura. “After delicious wood fired pizza the night ended with a DJ set performed by our friend in the packed marquee full of dancing and happiness.”

“As Tim’s mum is from Germany, we wanted to include some German tradition. Our favours were hand-filled miniature bottles of German Schnapps,” says Laura.
