I’m using today’s snow day to get back on track with my wedding blogs. Gary and Natasha’s ceremony took place in November last year at the beautiful Northumberland venue of Linden Hall. As usual, I had visited the venue several weeks prior in order to get the lay of the land and scope out the photo opportunities. I was also able to have a very useful chat with the on site wedding co-ordinator.
The ceremony took place in an attic room which had lovely period features like beams and original windows, the red carpet gave a spectacular entrance too.
I captured some wonderful moments during the ceremony, of the happy couple and their friends and family.
It’s always a real pleasure to be part of such a special day, and to document how happy the bride and groom are.
The weather was fantastic so it was great to be able to get the family group photos done in the grounds of the venue. I am increasingly finding that couples are wanting to move away from the ‘posed’ family shots, but I really think they’re an important part of the day and don’t have to be stuffy or formal. They also make great gifts for your guests!
Linden Hall makes a stunning backdrop for any wedding photography, and I can’t praise the staff highly enough, it was a smoothly run professional day because of them.
The evening reception continued in spectacular style and Gary and Natasha’s guests were treated to a whole host of entertainment. I’ve never seen a dance floor like this one!
As usual, I am always on the look out for all of the spontaneous moments that make up the magic of a wedding day. It’s probably my favourite aspect of weddings, because the expressions are genuine, and the moments are unscripted.
2018 is already proving to be a busy year of weddings for me, so if you are interested in one of my packages please get in touch. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via my Facebook page.
