Crook Hall Durham Wedding Photographer-11I’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.
