Rebecca and Jonathan were married on 9th September 2011 at Holy Trinity Church in Darlington and had their reception at Bannatyne Hotel in Darlington, a stunning grade II listed town house. Contemporary in style and design, it is the perfect wedding venue for a modern couple looking for a stylish reception.
Rebecca was really calm and laid back beforehand, having met Rebecca a few times before the wedding day when she visited the studio she was very comfortable with us and we have built up a really friendly relationship. She wore a beautiful dress from Pretty Picture Bridal and headdress from Glitzy Secrets and looked absolutely stunning. The Birdesmaids wore gorgeous, bright purple dresses from Best Dress Price and everything was beautifully finished off with flowers from Claire Metcalfe in Darlington who always supplies fantastic, contemporary flowers.
Jonathan and his groomsmen looked really smart in their suits also from Pretty Picture Bridal in Middlesbrough. Holy Trinity Church is a fantastic church with a lot of history in the town and it has a beautiful tree lined walkway which is a perfect spot for photographs. The service was wonderful, with a reading from Lesley Hooton (Rebecca’s Mum) and the guests were surprised when Rebecca and Jonathan’s two sons were also christened at the same time. They hadn’t told any of the guests so it was a really nice addition to an already lovely day!
Rebecca and Jonathan arrived in style at Bannatyne Hotel with Abbey Wedding Cars and were warmly greeted at their reception. Rebecca and Jonathan were really game for a laugh and we got some really fun shots of them and their guests enjoying themselves. Bannatynes has small but beautiful grounds which are really great for photographs including the striking front door which is a perfect natural frame for the happy couple!
The room looked stunning, it is so light and airey with a really contemporary look and was finished with table decorations made by Rebecca herself and a gorgeous cake made by Bev Harland (Jonathan’s Mum), what a talented lot they are!
Rebecca and Jonathan tell us that they had a fantastic night with music from A1 Roadshow and had a wonderful time in Crete on their honeymoon. They were thrilled with their wedding photography as were we, helped, of course, by having great models!
