Lauren & Joseph were married on 22nd February 2014 at Headlam Hall Hotel near Darlington. Headlam Hall is always a favourite venue of ours and we are proud to be on their recommended suppliers list and also supply the images for their website.
When we arrived at Headlam Hall Lauren was very excited. Their was a buzz of activity as hairdressers Starlight Hair Studio and make-up artists Bee Beautiful, both from Durham, were putting the finishing touches to Lauren & her bridesmaids hair and make-up. Lauren looked so beautiful and there was just enough time to get a shot of Lauren, her Mum & sister in their special wedding day dressing gowns, before it was time to change into her gorgeous dress from Brides & Beauty of Gateshead. A fabulous pair of Nine West shoes that Dorothy would have been proud of and a stunning bouquet by Flowers By Fleurella completed Lauren’s look.
Meanwhile, outside, Joseph’s nerves were showing a little as we photographed him with his groomsmen and close family. Guests chatted to Joseph as they arrived, wishing him and Lauren well and offering the odd bit of wise advice! Eventually, the time came for everyone to take their seats in Headlam Hall’s Edwardian Suite and await Lauren’s arrival on the arm of her proud Grandad. The service was lovely and afterwards, the smiles on Lauren & Joseph’s faces said a thousand words!
As the weather looked promising, for the time being anyway, we took the opportunity to photograph the happy couple around Headlam Hall’s stunning grounds and were lucky enough to capture the lovely snowdrops too! Helped by Joseph, Lauren swapped her shoes for wellies and off we went, later to be joined by Lauren & Joseph’s lovely dog who looked very dapper in his bowtie!
During this time, the fantastic staff at Headlam Hall were beavering away to get the Edwardian Suite ready for the wedding breakfast. Flowers and candles adorned the tables and Lauren & Joseph had even made their own table decorations! The cake by MaD Cake Supplies looked fantastic and was given pride of place.
Lauren & Joseph are now just waiting for their Graphistudio wedding book to arrive from Italy. I bet they can’t wait!
