Rory & Rebecca's York Wedding Heslington Church

York Castle Museum Wedding Photographer York

We have such a treat in store for you today! Here we have the wedding of the oh so fantastic Rev Rory Dalgliesh & Rebecca Weinkauf , and whilst the weather thought it could stop us….it didn’t! Let us tell you a story…..:

Rory and Rebecca met for the first time in early Spring 2010 in Roncesvalles, a monastery in the middle of nowhere at the foot of the Spanish Pyrenees. Both had decided some time before to walk the Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage route over 500 miles from France to the North-Western tip of Spain. Both had the gift of some time to travel and reflect on their lives, and do some exploring, and this seemed to both the best way to do so. But for a whole raft of seemingly inconsequential decisions in the days and weeks before, they may never have met. Their friendship grew on foot over the next 5 weeks as they walked in and out of each other’s lives, sometimes spending whole days together, sometimes not seeing each other for a few days at a time. Beer, coffee, conversation and laughter featured large. They eventually arrived together in Santiago, drank a bottle of champagne in the Cathedral square, and prepared to say their warmest goodbyes as good friends with wonderful memories. Icelandic volcanoes had other ideas, and so, stranded by the ban on flights home, they walked on to Finisterre, and over the next few days, quietly fell in love. Rebecca moved from Germany to York, and 3 & 1/2 years later they married, with friends, family  and fellow pilgrims in attendance.

We had such a fantastic time with these two, starting the day off in York with Rebecca to capture the bridal preparations. It was such a diverse morning with Rebecca being from Germany, we had her parents and siblings there with us too which was really great. We whizzed off over to Rory’s 5 minutes around the corner and caught up with the groom preparations and his two children (some amazing K-Nex structure you will see in one of the images) – aside from the best man turning up wearing his son’s knee length football socks, everything went smoothly. Rory is the Reverend at York university and you may recognise him from Kim & Martins wedding last year as he married them! but this time it was his turn to enjoy his wedding day at Heslington Church, York. Afterwards there was a tea, coffee and scones session before we popped out for some Bride & Groom Portraits around the York University campus and at some more wedding photography at  York Castle Museum. Then probably one of the coolest wedding breakfast locations ever…an old Victorian Street set in the York Castle museum, complete with cobbled streets, olde shoppe’s and all! We had an amazing time being their York Castle Museum Wedding Photographer. Enjoy!
