Matfen Hall Wedding Photography – Claire & Mark

Having photographed weddings in the North East for four years now, Matfen Hall is fast becoming one of my favourite venues. With amazing scenery, the ginormous Great Hall, lovely staff and yummy food it is the perfect place for a relaxed and romantic wedding. So I was thrilled when Claire and Mark asked me to photograph their wedding there.

If I had to describe Claire and Mark’s wedding day in three words, it would have to be ‘full of surprises’! From Mark’s handwritten note for Claire in the morning, to cutting the cake with Mark’s strongman sword (I can confirm that it was very heavy and very sharp) to the fireworks in the evening which Mark had no idea about!

Claire looked absolutely amazing with a sheer-backed lace dress and I love the amazing floral displays and Claire’s bouquet with the trailing orchids created by Hollie at Fleur Couture, who I have worked with a few times and always blows me away with what she can do with flowers! Cake Stories in Jesmond made the beautiful cake which looked too good to eat with metallic, pink and flower layers.

Here is the day in pictures, I am so glad to have been a part of this wedding day, it was so much fun to photograph, congratulations to the happy couple!

Matfen Hall Wedding Photography – Clare & Chris

The first wedding that I ever photographed was at Matfen hall, so I was really looking forward to going back with a much better camera and lots of experience under my belt to show off this wonderful venue at its best. The Great Hall is huge and so impressive, with quite a few steps for the bride to get down before the walk down the aisle (luckily Clare had very steady feet!).

I love all the colours in this wedding; the gorgeous purple flowers, with the addition of a white rose in the bride’s bouquet to represent Clare’s Yorkshire background, and the royal blue bridesmaids dresses.

Clare and Chris are some of the loveliest people that you could meet, and the whole day was filled with their happiness, making my job very easy! Thank you both for letting me be a part of your day, I hope that you enjoy this selection!
