Stacey and Matthew were married at The George, Piercebridge on 2nd September 2011. Traditionally an old coaching inn, The George has recently been renovated and as well as having beautiful function rooms, including the ballroom, it offers gorgeous grounds overlooking the River Tees which are a perfect backdrop to wedding photographs!
Stacey looked elegant and beautiful when we met her before the service. Her dress was from Exclusively Yours and looked fantastic alongside Stacey’s gorgeous flowers from Mary E. Sparrow in Peterlee. Everyone was high spirited and there was a lot of hustle and bustle in the room with Stacey and her 4 bridesmaids all getting ready at once! We got some great shots of everyone using the large mirror and beautiful window light in the room.
Matthew was very laid back before the service and looked very smart in his suit from Gavin Scott Formal Menswear. The service was lovely and Stacey looked really radiant throughout with a smile on her face the whole time so we got some really great shots of the happy couple and there was no sign of nerves at all!
Afterwards we used the beautiful riverside location to take some lovely shots of Stacey and Matthew with the wonderful bridge in the background. We also photographed the groups here including a fun shot of Stacey and Matthew with their friends and got some really natural casual shots of all the guests enjoying themselves.
The room looked fantastic, as ever, with decoration by Party On Balloons and Event Hire and cake from For Goodness Cakes and Stacey and Matthew were so pleased with the whole day. They tell us that they had a great night too with music from Phat ‘n’ Phunky and really enjoyed choosing the pictures for their album although it was a difficult choice!
