I’m enjoying showing shorter versions of some weddings. It really forces me to look at the photographs differently. Instead of looking at how they fit together as a series of documentary images, it’s sometimes nice just to pick 10 or 15 favourites and to show them out of sequence, so they get a chance to exist in their own right.
Here are 15 from Maude and Gulliver’s wedding at Crook Hall in Durham.
Crook Hall is a 13th Century medieval hall and house, with beautiful English gardens. It’s laid out on the side of a hill, over looking Durham Cathedral and it’s a beautifully idillic spot, where you can have a laid back wedding day that you can stamp your own personalities on.
Being there on a sunny June day with Maude, Gulliver and their friends and family was wonderful. An outdoor ceremony, a groom in red trousers and a bride in sparkly Sarah Seven, croquet on the lawn, dancing to a ceilidh band and pre-dinner tequila shots. Gulliver and Maude know how to do a wedding and we had a fantastic day. It was a beautifully warm and welcoming day to be a part of and Alice and I loved it.
