Kate and David were married at Seaham Hall on 28th August 2011. A luxury hotel and spa located on a beautiful cliff top on the seafront, as a leading five red star boutique hotel in the North East of England, this romantic Georgian country house is the perfect wedding venue. Their wedding was a long time coming as they had known each other since the age of 12! True childhood sweethearts!

We met Kate and her close family before the service in the luxurious Penthouse Suite when we arrived at Seaham Hall. It is a gorgeous, contemporary room with beautiful views over the sea and fantastic water feature. We used the wonderful Italian half tester bed and natural light in the room as the basis for some gorgeous shots of Kate and her bridesmaids. Everyone was in high spirits and looking forward to the big day ahead. Kate had chosen striking bright pink and orange flowers by Diana Kaye and a bright pink for the bridesmaid’s dresses by Elizabeth George this looked wonderful against her beautiful dress from Christabel and Keats in Hartlepool and also the muted tones of Seaham Hall.

David was very calm and laid back about the whole thing when we met him and his groomsmen before the service they wore suits from Baker’s Tailoring and had bright button holes to match the beautiful bouquets of Kate and her bridesmaids. 

The service took place in a beautifully light and airey area of the hotel just above the Serenity Spa and afterwards everyone mingled and enjoyed a drink at the bar whilst Kate and David greeted their guests. We got some great casual shots of the happy couple chatting to their friends and family before taking them to the water feature to photograph them against the striking background of Seaham Hall. 

The White Room looked beautiful dressed for the wedding breakfast with table decorations again by Diana Kaye. As Kate and David were having the speeches before the meal we stayed to photograph them and loved the fun shots we got of everyone enjoying the recounted tales of Kate and David’s past! Kate’s Dad got the biggest laugh when he told everyone about the first time they met and David’s romantic first words to Kate – “Can you lend me some money to get a burger”! Last of the great romantics hey! We’ll let him off though, he was 12!!

Kate, David and their guests were all entertained by the band Last Anthem and a good time was had by all and the happy couple had a fabulous honeymoon at Disney World in Florida.
