|I LOVE THIS ONE OF THE HAPPY COUPLE HEADING BACK TO THE MAIN HOUSE TO GET CHANGED FOR THE EVENING ... THAT'S ALL FOLKS!|
I first met with Angie when I was taking photographs of a VERY pregnant young lady with twins, who is also to be one of my 2013 brides at The Crab and Lobster.
Angie popped around as she was her next door neighbour and was just about signed up before she left the house!
We me at a wedding fair as well and it was great to meet with Michael too at his apartment in Hartlepool.
They had know each other as friends for about 11 years before it bloomed into romance, so this was one wedding I really wanted to get grips with - such lovely, happy, contented people!
They're both busy professional people too, so trust and confidence in what I was going to do on their wedding day and and how I was going to approach it was very important. Once they knew that I pretty much made it up as I go along on the day, working with the happy couple across 10 hours or so, together with their closest family and friends - they were convinced!
When I arrived at their apartment, it was full to the brim with people .. hairdressers and make-up artists, sisters and daughters and mothers and .... well, you know the thing!
It was all totally relaxed, not a Bridezilla to be seen, everyone just smiling and laughing and enjoying the build up.
Angie is the happiest, smiliest person you would ever meet and she was soooo enjoying her wedding day - laugh a minute. The beautiful wedding dress to the champagne to the amazing flowers and the lovely people meant that this was to be a very special day for her and Michael.
I managed to get some lovely images with Angie's Mum and sister and daughter as well before I headed off to Judges country House Hotel near Yarm - for the second time in a month after Joanne and Alan's wedding there in June.
Michael was already dressed and checking in with his guests, many from his circle of solicitor and lawyer and medical friends - with a big smile on his face too - he couldn't wait to see Angie arrive and I promised him she was looking amazing!
Angie and the party were travelling with Love Dub Cars - their VW Camper Vans in fact Jazz and Julio as they are named, and they looked as pretty as a picture when they all arrived - Michael was unaware of the transport and Angie had arranged that after the ceremony they would head off for a drive around while their guests drank champagne and enjoyed canapes.
As Angie was walked down the aisle by her eldest son, she became all emotional, which nearly set Michael off as well, but by the time she reached his side, all was well and smiles broke out all round.
A beautiful service by Lynn from Stockton on Tees Registrar department topped off the ceremony with cheers and clapping greeting the deliriously happy couple while Angie's grandchildren Seb and Max stole the show as they walked out!
Time for a few formal images before the happy couple headed off for a break, which meant that I could capture lots of happy, smiling people for the next hour or so before the guests were called in for a magnificent wedding breakfast (thank you folks .. ) and three fine speeches from thr two best men and Angie's son - as well as from the man of the moment, Michael of course!
Early evening we had a chance to catch up with some informal family images and capture some photographs of guests arriving for the evening entertainment provided by friends of the couple, which went down a storm!
I had a great time with a great couple at Judges Country House Hotel in Yarm - I hope you enjoy the sneak peek of their wedding
