Michelle & Peter were married on 11th February 2012 at Wynyard Hall. It was a bitterly cold day with a scattering of snow on the ground but thankfully Wynyard Hall has beautiful architecture and high ceilings inside for all the guests to admire and for wonderful photographic opportunities!
We began the day by meeting Michelle, her bridesmaids and her close family at Michelle’s parents house in the nearby village of Wynyard. We were immediately delighted by the fantastic staircase which made the perfect place to photograph the beautiful bride! Michelle wore a lovely ivory dress with beading detail and headdress both from Heart of Durham which were complimented beautifully by a bouquet of white orchids by Adam Prest. Michelle’s bridesmaids wore navy blue dresses again from Heart of Durham and had bouquets of cream roses, again by Adam Prest.
On arrival at Wynyard Hall we met Peter, his best man and ushers who looked very smart in their suits from Greenwoods and cream rose button holes to match the bridesmaid’s bouquets. We used the fantastic pillars at the front of Wynyard Hall to add a wow factor to the photographs of ‘the boys’!
There was a surprise for Michelle as her parents had hired a horse-drawn carriage from North East Carriage Company to take her to Wynyard Hall and she was absolutely thrilled! Michelle’s Mum and bridesmaids also arrived in style with Lovedub cars who are always a pleasure to work with.
The service took place in Wynyard Chapel which is absolutely beautiful and we got some really fun shots afterwards when everyone gathered to throw confetti on the happy couple!
After the service we photographed Michelle and Peter with the horses and carriage and we added to the cold, crisp feel of the photographs afterwards using effects on Photoshop which also turned a scattering of snow into a few inches! Again the pillars provided a wonderful background to the photographs.
During the drinks reception guests were entertained by Pocket Orchestra and enjoyed looking around the beautiful hall. The room looked gorgeous, as usual, and Michelle and Peter had a wonderful cake by Kelly Ann Cakes.
Michelle and Peter had a wonderful honeymoon in St.Lucia and came back looking very brown indeed! They loved their photographs and we can’t wait to see what they choose for their album!
