Amy & Luke, both teachers from London, were married at Wynyard Hall on the 6th August 2011. Set in its own beautiful and private grounds, Wynyard Hall Country House Hotel has so much charm and character and in our opinion is a fantastic wedding venue with a photographic opportunity around every corner.
We arrived at Amy’s parents house to find a very calm bride, bridesmaids and family! Despite the persistent rain everyone had a smile on their faces and were thoroughly looking forward to the day ahead. Amy looked so elegant when she changed into her dress from Poppy’s in Darlington and the bridesmaids complimented her simple yet classic style beautifully with their Grecian style violet dresses from Grace. The flowers by Flowerhouse were beautiful and Amy was thrilled that they had done such a fantastic job of attaching her Grandmother’s necklace to her bouquet. Using the wonderful staircase and hallway in the house we got some great shots of Amy and her bridesmaids.
Arriving at Wynyard Hall the rain was starting to get heavier. Luke seemed a little nervous but more excited! Using the brilliant architecture of Wynyard Hall as a background we photographed Luke, his best man and ushers with the wonderful cars supplied by Cleveland Classics. They looked really smart in their suits from Austin Reed.
Wynyard Hall’s chapel is so beautiful, a gorgeous wedding venue. The service was lovely with touching readings from Jan Rogers (Luke’s mum) and Karen Mills (Amy’s Aunt). During the signing of the register the guests were entertained by Luke’s friends Sarah on piano and Laura with her beautiful soprano voice. After the service, realising that while we had been in the chapel the rain had turned torrential and we now had thunder and lightening (eek!), we photographed some of the family groups and the happy couple in the chapel.
Having taken dance lessons before the wedding, Amy and Luke were keen to show off their newly acquired skill and we got some great shots of them dancing in the conservatory. Luke was also keen to make use of the grand piano, being a music teacher, we were so happy with the results and Amy and Luke were too!
Before we left Amy, Luke and their guests to their celebrations we photographed the room and the cake. The room looked absolutely stunning, as it always does at Wynyard Hall and the cake by Burnett 4 Cakes carried on the classically beautiful theme of the wedding.
Amy and Luke had a fantastic honeymoon in Sydney, visiting Amy’s Aunt while they were there and they were also thrilled to bits with their photographs. We can’t wait to see what they choose for their album!
