After their engagement shoot before Christmas, I was so excited to photograph Emma & Allan’s wedding in Durham!

Once I arrived at Seaham Hall, Emma was still finishing off her wedding playlist! We all spent most of the morning suggesting some top tunes for the night ahead. This kept us all entertained, and also kept the nerves at bay!

Emma really was the most stunning bride and was an absolute dream to photograph. We had a little time to spare before heading down to the ceremony, which meant we got chance to get some gorgeous portraits.

The ceremony itself took place in the atrium of the hotel. The room was beautifully lit and looked especially festive with the Christmas tree taking centre stage. During the service, the page boy took a bauble off the tree that had the wedding rings inside! Emma & Allan had also decided to write their own wedding vows, and afterwards there was not a dry eye in the building.

Even though it was freezing cold, Emma & Allan were so kind and willing to go outside for their portraits. I’m so thrilled that they did as they are some of my favourite portraits of 2017. Good work guys!

The evening reception was a lot of fun, and there were a lot of laughs surrounding the snooker table when the kids won against the adults!

The whole drive back to Harrogate I couldn’t help thinking what a magical day it had been from start to finish. Also a massive shout out to my amazing second shooter Fern who did an incredible job!

Emma & Allan it was an absolute pleasure to be part of such a special day – thank you!
