May 2017

As wedding venues go, Neil and Natalie’s choice of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway definitely made this day extra special. It was a privilege to photograph their wedding, and a unique opportunity in such a beautiful setting!

Two coaches prepared especially for the occasion were coupled to the southbound service from Grosmont to Pickering, on which the wedding ceremony and drinks reception were held.

After replacing the locomotive’s nameplate with something more apt, Michelle boarded the train before it left Grosomont at 1:30pm sharp. Wedding guests waited eagerly in the rear coach for Michelle to make her entrance to what was a wonderful ceremony which took place as the train passed through Levisham. 

After champagne and celebrations, we arrived in Pickering for a quick photograph on the footplate before making the journey back to Grosmont before the celebrations continued nearby. 

All the best to Natalie and Neil for the future!
