Hannah and Gary were married on 1st April 2012 at St. Edwin’s Church, High Coniscliffe and had their reception at Headlam Hall Hotel. The sun certainly had it’s hat on that day, amazing for the time of year!
Ann arrived at Headlam Hall to meet Hannah just as her and her bridesmaids were getting the finishing touches done to their make-up. Their make-up artist was Alison Petitjean who also does a lot of our studio makeovers. She always does such a fantastic job of making her clients look amazing so we never hesitate in recommending her to our brides! Hannah was really giggly and happy, if she was nervous she didn’t show it at all! She looked stunning in her dress from Brides of Harrogate and headdress from Grace of Darlington and designed and made by Sue Webster, The Headdress Designer and her family looked on with huge smiles on their faces as the finishing touches were made. The bridesmaids wore a beautiful royal blue which blended very well with the colours in the tartan kilts that the men wore.
When we arrived at St. Edwin’s we were thrilled to see how beautiful it looked with blossom on the trees and daffodils in full bloom, it looked like a picture postcard! Even the chickens came out to admire the scene! Gary and his groomsmen looked fantastic in their traditional scottish kilts and thistle button holes and were very laid back and relaxed. The service was lovely and both Hannah and Gary grinned throughout. They then led their guests out accompanied by piper, Brian Robinson and arrived in style at Headlam Hall with Elite Wedding Cars.
Headlam Hall, a beautiful 17th century mansion near Darlington, looked stunning in the sunshine! It is a favourite venue of ours with gorgeous grounds and a photographic opportunity around every corner. Guests were entertained by magician, Paul Lytton and caricarturist Paul Slattery who made the day really fun and put a smile on every face. Hannah was amazed when Paul Lytton swapped a card that she had put in her mouth with the one that was in his own just by dancing with her!
The happy couple had a wonderful night and honeymoon in the Maldives and were thrilled with their photographs when they saw them for the first time last week.
