Rachel & Matthew were married on Friday 6th June 2014 at Hall Garth Hotel, Darlington and had an absolutely wonderful day! I was so pleased to see the sun shining and the sky blue that morning! They had booked Hall Garth’s ultimate wedding package, which is amazing value and takes a lot of the stress out of wedding planning! As well as the Hall Garth as the venue for your wedding, the happy couple gets their photographs taken by us, room decoration by the First Class Wedding Company, floral table decoration from Flowers by Nattrass and the Ian Gee Roadshow for evening entertainment!
Arriving at Rachel’s Mum’s house, everyone was busy getting ready for the day ahead. Rachel looked beautiful, if a little bit nervous, as her Mum fastened the back of her dress from Sense Of Style. Suddenly, everything was very real! With hair beautifully styled by Alison Cox, Rachel really looked lovely. Next to arrive were the bouquets for Rachel and her bridesmaids. In gorgeous shades of cream with a pop of blue here and there, they really stood out and were skillfully made by a family friend. The bridesmaids wore dresses in navy, again from Sense Of Style, and the navy theme really gave a touch of class to the day.
Over at Hall Garth, Matthew was as white as a sheet and a bag of nerves! The colour came back to his cheeks, however, as the camera started clicking and the best man kept him at ease with his jokes. All the guys looked great in their suits from Affleck & Moffat and as guests arrived, time ticked on and before long everyone was ushered inside ready for Rachel’s arrival.
After arriving in style with GW Holmes Wedding Cars, Rachel was led into the service by her proud Dad. Emotions ran high throughout the service, with many tears of happiness shed and afterwards, the newly-weds were happy to be taken for a spin with GW Holmes and have a bit of much-needed alone time.
After a few minutes, Rachel & Matthew arrived back and walked out onto the terrace to be greeted by their guests. A stroll around the grounds and to the secret garden followed, where there are many photographic opportunities.
The happy couple were eager to see their room dressed up for the wedding breakfast, and what a fantastic job The First Class Wedding Company and Flowers by Nattrass had done! It looked stunning and a lovely cake by Jilly’s Cakes stood proud in the corner.
Rachel & Matthew had a wonderful honeymoon in Menorca and were so excited to see their photographs when they returned!
