Rachel & Chris were married on Friday 23rd August 2013 at St.Wilfred’s Church, South Kilvington and had a reception at Judges Hotel near Yarm.
We met a giggly Rachel and her two sisters beforehand at her house where everyone was busy having the finishing touches done to their hair and make-up. The excitement was growing as flowers and gifts arrived and everyone got changed into their outfits for the big day. Rachel’s dress, headdress, shoes and the bridesmaids dresses were all bought at Carlton Couture, Ripon and all the girls looked stunning, especially, of course, Rachel! Once her sisters had helped her put her dress on everyone took a step back and admired how beautiful Rachel looked! All the outfits were beautifully finished with bouquets in pink and white, to match the beautiful shade of the bridesmaids dresses, by Hutton Flowers of Northallerton.
Meanwhile, over at the church, Chris’ nerves were growing a little as we arrived to photograph him and his groomsmen before the wedding. All wearing suits from Affleck & Moffat of Darlington, they looked very smart!
Eventually the time came for everyone to gather inside the church and Rachel arrived in style with Exclusive Wedding Cars of Durham. The service was lovely in such a pretty, little church and Rachel and Chris walked out as husband and wife to their guests smiling faces and masses of confetti!
Arriving at Judges we took the opportunity to photograph the happy couple with the car and around the gorgeous grounds before the guests arrived. Judges is always a favourite venue of ours as there are lots of photographic opportunities around every corner! After a bit of time chatting to guests and enjoying a, well deserved, glass of champagne it was time for the wedding breakfast in the beautifully decorated reception room with the piece de resistence – a lovely cake from Cupcake Creations by Heidi of Thirsk.
Rachel and Chris came back to the studio, looking very brown, after a wonderful honeymoon in the Maldives, and were thrilled with their photographs.
