At 3pm on the 23rd of September, 2011 Emma’s father walked his daughter down the aisle to the instrumental version of Katie Melua’s ‘Thank you Stars’. Emma and Rich celebrated a civil ceremony with a blessing by the Archdeacon of York, followed by two readings. Friends and family showered the newlywed couple with petals and everyone proceeded in to a marquee that had been set up with in the grounds of Villa Farm in York; a 6 acre farm in the countryside featuring luxury holiday cottages.
When searching for a venue Emma and Rich knew that they wanted a somewhere that could accommodate their guests over night, as well as a location that they could incorporate their personal stamp. The team at Villa Farm and their wedding organisers, Pink Diamonds, were fantastic in helping Emma and Rich create the wedding reception of their dreams.
