Louise and Chris's Skipbridge Farm wedding was definitely one to remember! It was the wettest wedding I have ever photographed in 10 years of shooting weddings.

Despite having everything planned for an outdoor celebration, they remained unfazed. Throughout the day, they continued to smile and fully embraced the challenging weather conditions. Now that's what I call wedding goals!

York, North Yorkshire

Skipbridge Country Farm is situated in-between Harrogate and York. The perfect setting for couples who love the outdoors or dream of getting married amongst nature. The scenic North Yorkshire countryside offers a stunning backdrop with lots of lush greenery and fields waiting to be explored.

What I love about Skipbridge Farm is it is a dog friendly wedding venue. This family run venue and farm is inhabited by various animals, including charming Alpacas and Llamas.

Outdoor wedding in the rain

Lou and Chris choose to have an outdoor ceremony in the willow bower under the willow tree - adorable! This was especially convenient as it allowed guests to wander over to the tipi for drinks immediately afterward or seek shelter when the skies opened up unexpectedly. Yes, rain can indeed happen on your wedding day, but these two handled it like champions.

Teepee Wedding Yorkshire

Skipbridge Farm is an excellent option for couples seeking a relaxed outdoor tipi wedding, just like Lou and Chris. Not only does Skipbridge Farm provide picturesque grounds for legal ceremonies, but they also offer top-quality tipi hire services through Garden Weddings. Having everything in one location is highly advantageous on your wedding day as it reduces the need for travel and allows more time for partying!

Accommodation at Skipbridge Farm

The day began with Lou and Chris getting ready in separate cottages all on site at Skipbridge. This was particularly great because everything was all in one location and allowed all their guests to stay there too.

There are a number of different holiday cottages at Skipbridge as well as the option of glamping. All dog friendly too!

Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

They held their ceremony under the large willow tree, with all the wedding puppers in attendance. In particular, their handsome ginger Vizsla, Rocco who was right by Chris' side as Lou walked down the aisle.

The clouds began to gather as Lou walked down the aisle with her dad, signalling the rain was about to start.
As Lou and Chris exchanged their vows, the heavens opened, and wedding guests quickly huddled under their umbrellas. Despite the downpour, Harrogate Borough Council did a marvellous job of keeping everyone's spirits high as they concluded the ceremony under the shelter of the tipi.
