Ah, young love, and how better to celebrate it than with a show-stopper wedding at the almighty Wynyard Hall? Jennifer and David tied the knot on the third of May in some of the most impressive surroundings that County Durham and the North East have to offer.
Bridal preparations were relaxed and fun, although the flower girl Amelia (daughter of bridesmaid Kate) did take a dislike to the camera (or possibly me, I’m not sure). She cheered up on receiving her wand, after which everything was fine because she could turn me into a frog and the camera was therefore no longer a worry. So if you take nothing else away from Jennifer and David’s wedding, just remember that magic wands fix all ills.
The ceremony was beautiful and I heartily approve of their dancing up the aisle. As first acts as husband and wife go, it’s a good place to start.
The day was warm and sunny so we took formal family photographs outside around the Hall before retiring for speeches and the meal. Having such a lovely day it made sense to take a relaxing wander around the grounds for some photos of the bride and groom, helped by the staff at Wynyard who were happy to drive us up to some of the places less accessible in pretty wedding shoes. One of the reasons for selecting the particular venue and date were for the cherry blossoms being in flower at just that time, and I still love the photos we took in the cherry orchard. Having already done a pre-wedding shoot with Jennifer and David we had a great relationship already and the photos were a lot of fun.
For that little something extra Lickety Split Ice Cream were there to make the day even more special (because who doesn’t like ice cream?), and then there was the cake cutting, first dance, and wild and crazy partying into the night.
What more could you want from the best day of your life?
