February is usually a month in which I can relax before the wedding season runs me ragged with its beautiful brides, blooms, dresses and grooms. It isn’t a particularly big month for weddings in general, but then I get to be a part of days like Kris & Lisa’s and I wonder why more folk don’t have days like these.
Lisa & Kris got married at Lumley Castle in Chester-le-Street. It was February, it was a little chill, but my word it was a good day! Getting ready was busy and fun, with the flower girl practicing her walk (and pout!) whilst the bridesmaids got themselves and Lisa looking stunning.
You just can’t beat a girly morning, can you?!
The ceremony was lovely, and after the formal photos Kris and Lisa wanted some quirky ones of themselves. Can I resist when a bride and groom ask for something ‘a bit different’? No. No I can’t. So we got some really cute photos of them with the rings, the veil, a silly one with the mobile phone even. All in February! They had drinks with their family and friends, some heartfelt speeches, and a great meal. Theirs was an extended half day package so I wasn’t around for the first dance (although I’m told they gave Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers a run for their money, but you know what they say: pictures or it didn’t happen!).
So how about that; proof that February weddings can be beautiful, elegant, fun, and emotional.
