FIRST DANCE AND TIME FOR THE STETSON TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE ALL THE WAY FROM CALGARY, CANADA AT FRASER AND AMY'S INTIMATE WINTER WEDDING AT ELLINGHAM HALL IN NORTHUMBERLAND - PHOTOGRAPHY BY DIRK VAN DER WERFF
Amy and Fraser met at university in Aberdeen and since then have travelled the world from their original family homes in Scotland and Northumberland.
Nowadays they live in Calgary in Canada, so organising a wedding from thousands of mles away was never going to be easy - but thanks to the internet and some great organisational skills - they did it - in style!
Amy had seen a wedding that I had photographed for Liz and Steve at Ellingham Hall, a beautiful exclusive use wedding venue in Northumberland last year on my BLOG and e-mailed to to ask some questions. Once I had done that she was determined, on the basis of my wedding blog and my website that she wanted me to be a small but important part of her wedding at Ellingham Hall!
Fraser and Amy visited Northumberland in September - and we met for the first time and got on really well, and I met with her mum too. We e-mailed each other a few more times, and last Saturday, finally was the date for the BIG day at Ellingham Hall.
It was a gray overcast day, drizzling rain and there was fog too on the roads as I made my way though Newcastle and then headed up the A1 past Alnwick, but once I was in the beautiful Ellingham Hall, all decked out with Christmas trees and decorations and open roaring fires, I was transported to a much nicer place!
Amy's mum came to greet me and before long I was watching and photographing all the decorations and detail pieces which come in so handy when I come to designing their wedding album - and Fraser appeard wearing his kilt but he was wandering about in his running shoes! Cool calm and collected!
Amy was tucked away on the third floor having her hair styled and all around the lovely old house, people were appearing in their wedding finery.
The service was short and sweet - with lots of laughs and immediately after the ceremony we headed straight outside as there was only about 10 minutes of daylight left and we knew we wanted to get a good group shot of everyone together.
After that was a relaxing hour or two with canapes and drinks before heading into the main hall, decked out with candles and decorations for our dinner and speeches before chilling out for a while in the reception room and the main lounge as the ceilidh band set up.
Then Fraser and Amy surprised us all by putting on their cowboy boots for their first dance and Fraser donned a wonderful stetson which made him look so handsome for their first dance!
The candles .. the music .. the ambiance and the fun stayed with me as I headed for a long drive down the A1 back home. 
A great day for everyone!
I hope you enjoy a SNEAK PEAK of a few of the images from their great day.
