Elizabeth's wedding at Wynyard Hall was a first for me in that wedding venue in February.
I have photographed weddings there virtually every month of the year since it opened its doors to wedding celebrations a few years ago, so Elizabeth and Derek were very excited to gather their closest friends and relatives at one of the top wedding venues in the north of England.
It had been a hectic few weeks for the happy couple as they headed to their wedding date .... with Derek in the Army and Elizabeth busy at work, they barely had time for each other as the big day came closer and closer.
I met with Elizabeth and her family as her bridemaids and herself had their make-up done by Lisa Jones and when they were relaxing with champagne at a family home, there was certainly no anxiety or nervousness from the bride-to-be who was cool as a cucumber all day!
Once all the hair was complete it was convoy time to Wynyard Hall where Vikki from House of Mooshki was to complete the fitting of the bespoke wedding dress that Elizabeth had selected.
The old spa room in Wynyard hall is now a dressing room for the brides who get married there and so we hung-out there as the bridemaids got ready and Elizabeth prepared for her day with her Mum and friends.
Derek was a little nervous in the chapel as he awaited his bride, but soon relaxed once she came into view by his side in the chapel.
Just before this Elizabeth had left with her close friend Dan who was giving her away, and alighted into the horses and carriage for a quick ten minute trot around the grounds of Wynyard Hall .. Soon enough she was back to gather up all the bridesmaids and make her grand entrance!
The wind was cold and whipping around the chapel, so wee didn't stay outside long - but time enough for a quick confetti shot for Mums and friends before I got a photograph of Derek and his friends with the Aston Martin DB9 which was his week-lomg wedding present from his new wife!
Wynyard is a great location for indoor photographs if the weather is inclement, so after an hour of chilling out and capturing lots of relaxed images of the bride and groom and their guests I made the best of the available daylight (fast disappearing) to capture some parent photographs, and close family friends and relatives before they all headed in for the meal and the speeches!
The was time for some fun afterwards when Elizabeth gathered all her girlfriends with her in the honeymoon suite for a few bottles of champagne before her and Derek made their grand entrance for their first dance and the cutting of their wedding cake.
A great day for the happy couple at Wynyard hall Country House Hotel - I hope you enjoy a dozen or two images from their celebrations which capture how relaxed it was, what fun it was and what a great day it was for them and their family and friends.
