We made the long (?) journey over to the north east for Vicki & Howard’s fantastic wedding last Friday. We love travelling for weddings as it’s a great way of seeing more of the UK, most of which we’d probably never get to visit! It’s also good to photograph at venues we’ve never been to before, few things help us feel more creative than to be completely out of our regular comfort zone. Wynyard Hall itself is a stunning venue too, with its own attached chapel and beautiful architecture both inside and out – we always love pillars!
Vicki & Howard are a fun and creative couple who were an absolute pleasure to work with, they wanted their wedding to be very personal and totally relaxed. One of the nicest touches, and certainly quite an epic undertaking, were the place cards which all had a personally written message from the bride and groom – such a lovely idea! We were honoured to be pretty much the only people there on the day that they hadn’t known for years. They found us through their friends Amy and Phil, who’s wedding we photographed over two years ago – thanks for still spreading the word!!
We were joined at the wedding by the very talented James Pearson – an up and coming Scottish wedding photographer who was kind enough to 2nd shoot for us. I’m sure he’ll have some shots up on his blog in the next few weeks.
Here’s Howard, in Howard Place – I don’t know where the sign came from but I like it!
Here’s a shot James got of Vicki and her sister that I love:
He’s a happy man!
Doesn’t Dad look so proud! He used to be a wedding photographer too – no pressure!
A little dancing in the morning is always a good thing:
One of my favourites:
The choir was made up of lots of their friends, they even personalised the song!
This man is an amazing singer!
There’s a lot of love here.
I’ll finish off part one with some of the lovely details
