Natalie Tyrens and Graeme Cochrane were married at Wynyard Hall on 21st October 2011. Wynyard Hall is definitely a favourite venue of ours, with it’s high ceilings and magnificent rooms and not forgetting the beautiful chapel we are spoilt for choice as photographers. It is always an exciting venue to go to!
We arrived at Wynyard Hall to find Natalie looking truly radiant in her Eddy K dress from Dobinson’s of Darlington. Mrs Dobinson has years of experience in helping brides choose their wedding dresses and instinctively knows what will suit you! Natalie’s gorgeous headdress, again from Dobinson’s, and flowers in beautiful pastel shades from Valerie Rose completed her wedding day look. Natalie’s bridesmaids wore floor skimming pastel pink dresses from Heart of Durham which complemented Natalie’s colourings and flowers beautifully. We knew that this was going to be a very memorable wedding!
Before the service it was clear that Graeme was slightly nervous but looked very handsome in his suit from Moss Bros. We photographed Graeme, his groomsmen and family in the grand, main entrance to Wynyard Hall before going into the service.
Wynyard Hall’s chapel is a breath-taking wedding venue. Everywhere you look there is ornate decoration and a wonderful golden glow! Graeme definitely had a tear in his eye as Natalie and her father walked down the aisle and rightly so, she looked stunning! The service was lovely, as ever, with a heartfelt reading from Natalie’s brother Jonathan. Natalie and Graeme exchanged romantic looks and smiles throughout the service which, of course, we caught on camera! Such a romantic couple!
After the service Natalie, Graeme and their guests gathered in the main hall for their drinks reception which gave us the perfect opportunity to get some candid, fun shots of everyone enjoying themselves. After a few drinks to calm the nerves, Natalie and Graeme climbed aboard their horse-drawn carriage from North-East Carriage Company for a ride around the grounds and a perfect photographic opportunity! Back at Wynyard Hall we photographed the family groups and took some romantic shots of the happy couple in the lavish reception area of the Hall whilst catching some of the ladies taking the opporunity to top up their lipstick!
The room looked amazing with table decorations, again from Valerie Rose and cake and favours from, world famous, Betty’s in Northallerton, it really had the wow factor!
Natalie and Graeme came to the studio just the other day to collect their wedding photographs and assure us that a great time was had by all at the reception, with entertainment from The Deadbeats, and they had an amazing honeymoon in Mauritius. They loved their photographs and we just couldn’t wait to share some of them on here with you!
