Last month we were lucky enough to celebrate with the new:
Mr and Mrs Powney
I am so happy these two lovely people finally tied the knot. A true love story!
Janine, a hairdresser, and Keith, an RAF Officer, were childhood sweethearts whose lives were on different paths. That love never died and they finally found their way back to each other.
A generous and sentimental pair, who were unlucky enough to have to rearrange and reschedule their happily ever after four times, thanks to Covid-19. Their final date fated to be, as it fell on the anniversary of their first date.
It was essentially still late summer, early September. The days still warm and mild. Keith and Janine were lucky enough to get a sunny and breezy day. Taking full advantage of an outdoor ceremony.
Their pale yellow colour scheme and simple, traditional and elegant suits and dresses complimented the setting perfectly.
Hallgarth Manor is a traditional 16th century country house located just outside Durham City.
The gardens are perfect for nature inspired ceremonies. Two large trees create an enchanting entrance for any bride. Completed with a white gazebo centre piece at the end of the aisle, for the formal ceremony to take place.
A magical and glamourous wedding in a traditional and quaint venue.
And what better way to celebrate than dancing under the huge glitter ball in the reception room.
What a Day
I have known Janine since I was a child and wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair. So I was ecstatic that she was trusting me to capture their story.
I loved the gardens and outdoor ceremony, allowing me to capture a variety of shots, angles and perspectives, being able to move around with ease. I loved sharing moments with these two following the ceremony. Capturing them absorbing the emotions, memories and incredible journey to get here. Capturing that pure emotion in their couple portraits. It also gave them chance to break away from the crowd to catch their breath. Or have a cheeky cigarette.
I love getting lost in your stories.
We are always on hand with tissues, cigarettes, water or whatever you might need. You can even ask our advice during the planning process, we are happy to share our experiences.
It was a picture perfect wedding for a beautiful couple and family, inside and out.
Why Photography is Important
I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.
