The Manor House Wedding – Kathryn & David

It is always so lovely to photograph a wedding for friends, especially when those friends are super laid back and are happy for you to do your own thing! Kathryn and David has the most wonderfully laid back and beautiful wedding day at The Manor House Hotel in West Aukland. There were so many beautiful personal touches to this day, such as the hand painted wooden signs, David’s monogrammed cufflinks, the custom family lego cake topper and the pastel pink roses by Victoria at Mrs Blooms. I also love that the couple did away with the traditional cake cutting and cut their cake straight after the ceremony so that the guests could eat it during the drinks reception!

Kathryn looked absolutely stunning in her beaded lace dress which was altered by Pressed Prom and Bridal who even arrived in the morning to do some final fittings and lace up the back to make sure Kathryn was picture perfect, what amazing service!  The boys also looked super smart in navy suits with gold ties and the couple two sons were brilliant as co-best man and a page boy, and kept me on my toes chasing around after them in the gardens!

Here is a selection of my favourite shots from the day, I hope you enjoy them.

The Manor House Wedding – Fiona & Wayne

This summer I shot my first wedding at The Manor House Hotel in West Aukland, county Durham for the lovely Fiona and Wayne. The venue is pretty local for me and its huge medical hall is a very impressive setting for a wedding, as a photographer I also love that there are gardens surrounding the hotel which means lots of pretty backgrounds for photos!

Wayne and Fiona have been together for over 9 years and are such a lovely couple it is hard not to have fun around them, the day was really relaxed and enjoyable and a pleasure to be a part of. I love Fiona’s unusual beaded cream coloured gown which was complimented perfected by Wayne’s military uniform. Wayne’s three daughters where also beautiful bridesmaids and looked gorgeous in navy blue.

Here is a selection of my favourite moments from the day, enjoy!

Horton Grange Wedding Photography – Kim & Michael

July was such a good month for weddings and it all started with Kim and Michael’s beautiful day at Horton Grange Country House Hotel in Northumberland. This was one of the most relaxed days I have ever been to and Kim was so chilled out it was lovely to be a part of. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t on their side and the planned outdoor ceremony was moved inside when the rainclouds threatened!

Horton Grange looked beautiful and I loved the blue and yellow touches and Kim’s stunning low-backed lace dress. Enjoy this selection of my favourite photos from the day.
