Jane & Neil were married on the 23rd August 2018 at the Blackwell Grange Hotel in Darlington. The recently refurbished and ever-popular Darlington hotel, has gone from strength to strength after it’s wonderful face lift! Engaged couples are falling in love with it’s elegance and Jane & Neil particularly loved the spectacular staircase. Luckily, due to it’s magnificent staircase, the Blackwell Grange is a wonderful venue if the weather isn’t particularly kind on your wedding day. Unfortunately, this was one of those days! After months of sunshine, we had heavy showers all day!
On arrival at the Blackwell Grange, Jane was having the finishing touches done to her hair and make-up by hairdresser Janne Pincher and make-up artist Rebecca Appleton. Excited and a little nervous, Jane looked beautiful and her stunning dress from Butterflies Bridal Outlet hung ready for her to step into. The time for that moment came round quickly and gasps filled the room at how stunning she looked! Jane’s look was finished with a flowing veil and headdress from Poppy Bridal whilst the four excited bridesmaids wore gorgeous dresses in pale turquoise, Jane’s Mum’s favourite colour, also from Poppy Bridal.
Meanwhile, downstairs a nervous Neil paced and asked how Jane was doing! Incredibly eager to get proceedings underway and to see his beautiful wife, Neil was all ready along with his groomsmen in their suits from Affleck & Moffat. The ceremony was beautiful and it was clear how in love the happy couple were as they gazed into each other’s eyes whilst saying their vows. The room looked beautiful too with bright splashes of turquoise and a fantastic ‘LOVE’ sign by XLB Events.
We made the most of the lovely staircase after the ceremony for the group shots and, ducking in and out between showers, we managed eventually to get all the shots of the newly weds that they were eager to have in the Blackwell Grange’s many beautiful photogenic spots! We had to wait until the evening to do a confetti shot but, as Jane & Neil had added evening coverage to their package, we got there eventually and even got the evening guests involved too.
Everyone had a fantastic time during the evening celebrations, enjoying the cake by Crescent Cakes, having fun in the Happy Events Photo Booth and dancing the night away with Ultimate Sounds. The happy couple jetted off after their wedding to, the beautiful, Dominican Republic and were thrilled with their photographs upon their return.
