Crook Hall Wedding – Helen & Robert

It was a beautiful September day for Helen and Robert’s wedding at Crook Hall and Gardens in Durham City. Such a perfect venue for a small, intimate wedding. The gardens looked beautiful and we were spoilt for choice for the photos.

What a fun and happy day it was, it really made me smile putting together this selection of my favourite images. I love the long sleeved lace dress (with so many buttons!) and that Helen added some family heirloom broaches to her bouquet for her something old, borrowed and blue.

Doxford Hall Wedding Photography – Louisa & Chris

My first wedding at Doxford Hall was for the lovely Louisa and Chris who were married on the same day as Louisa’s parents 45th wedding anniversary, so a very lucky day! Louisa and her bubbly bridesmaids had the lodge house to themselves for all the bridal preparations while the boys got ready at the Hall. It was one of the happiest ceremonies that I have been to, I don’t think the couple ever stopped smiling and they are obviously meant for each other!

What an happy and fun day Louisa and Chris had! It has really made me smile putting together this selection of favourites, watch out for cute flower girls, a beautiful beaded princess dress and lots of confetti!

Beamish hall Wedding Photography – Andrea & Richie

Andrea and Richie had an amazing Art Deco/20’s themed wedding at the beautiful Beamish Hall Hotel back in August, it was only fitting after the couple got engaged on a trip to New York!

Andrea looked stunning in an oh-so-pale pink lace gown with blush pink and soft green coloured bridesmaid dresses and pink flowers. In keeping with their theme they had vintage gramophones playing during the drinks reception with lots of pearls and manhattan cocktails for favours in the evening.

You can never predict what the weather is going to be like and even in August it was a bit wet and very blustery, which did make for some great flying-veil shots! The couple and their families were so much fun to be around and made my job very easy indeed!

Enjoy this little preview…

The Best of 2016

This year has been incredible for me, both in my personal life and on the business front (hello Regional Finalist for Wedding Photographer in the North East!). There have been so many lovely people marrying the love of their lives. I have been to rustic barn weddings and stately homes, majestic churches and garden ceremonies, but each day has been special and I have been so lucky to have played a small part in each.

A few venues have been ticked off my wish list this year including Doxford Barns (where I am now very proud to be a recommended supplier!), Beamish Hall Hotel, Crook Hall and Gardens and Doxford Hall, as well as returning to old favourites like Matfen Hall Hotel and Horton Grange.

It has been so hard to choose my favourite images from the whole year, which is why there is rather a lot! So put the kettle on, settle in and enjoy!
