Many beautiful wedding venues now offer bespoke packages for smaller wedding parties and wedding celebrations for groups as small as 15 people up to 35 or 40 people, usually midweek.
These wedding are ideal for couples who don't want a 'corporate' wedding and who want to personalise their day with their very closest friends and relatives.
Stephen and Caroline were just one such couple. They wanted the grandeur and service of Wynyard Hall Country House Hotel, and a midweek wedding suited them and their circle of friends and relatives. With the range of beautiful historic rooms at Wynyard Hall, superb food and special wedding packages and deals for a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday weddings at Wynyard Hall, they were never going to be disappointed!
One thing they knew was important was a great slection of images from their great day of celebration, and my bespoke packages for just four or five hours coverage midweek suited Caroline and Stephen down to the ground.
It's important with a wedding on much smaller scale that communication and relationship is built through the initiaL meeting and the follow up e-mails and phone calls and even Facebook, so that when we come to the pre-wed meeting (or photoshoot if required) everyone if comfortable and happy with the way that they can just relax and have a great day of celebration without a care in the world, safe in the knowledge that I will capture some lovely natural images of their day, together with some happy family photographs to truly represent what a great time was had by all.
Caroline and her bridesmaids were in fine form at her Mum's house, a laugh a minute with these lively ladies and the lovely Libby who was a mischievous munchkin all day!
Caroline was very happy with her EllisBridals wedding gown and her Valerie Rose flowers for the bouquets very very lovely too, as indeed were the table displays at Wynyard hall when we arrived.
I headed off to Wynyard Hall for my fourth wedding there of the year to meet with Stephen and his best man Scotty who were surprisingly relaxed for the Wynyard Chapel wedding ceremony
The beautiful Rolls Royce Silver Cloud from Dunn's Vintage Cars carried Caroline and her father to the wedding ceremony .. it's such a beautiful wedding car!
We were all expecting Stephen to cry when he saw Caroline ... Stephen himself told me that he probably would, but he held it together during their lovely ceremony - made extra special with a lovely choir and music from Cantabile who also played in the statue gallery during the reception.
Once out in the open air, the sun shone brightly for once at Wynyard Hall so it was time for lots of handshakes and backslaps and bear-hugs before I set up a confetti shot for everyone to enjoy.
We had a relaxed hour to ourselves before the speeches, so Caroline and Stephen were busy meeting and greeting as as we got the opportunity I captured some lovely informal and informal family images. The speeches were well received, the best man, a Sunderland supporter was not best pleased by the groom's insistence that the Newcastle Utd theme tune should be played as they walked into the groom to be announced!
It was nice to be in the Mirror room for a reception, the last time I was in there was for another small intimate wedding last October.
It was a perfect couple of hours with Caroline and Stephen, they and their family and friends relaxed completely and let me into their world to capture a nice set of natural photographs of their lovely wedding.
