Deborah and Rob got married at Mary and Cuthbert Church at Chester-le-street and then went on to have their reception at Bowburn Hall.
Deborah is actually a friend of mine who I first met when I used to work in Fenwicks about a decade ago, whilst at uni. I have always wanted to photograph her as she is really striking and I learn't very photogenic. The church was probably the darkest I have shot in and I was allowed very limited flash, after negotiation, but I was very grateful for that as it allowed me to get nice shots of the ceremony. My second shooter for this wedding Jacqui Grigg was at the back so the shots included from the back are hers.
I had not shot at Bowburn Hall before but I really liked it. The day was really relaxed, colourful and fun. Deborah and Rob had the attitude of just enjoying their day instead of stressing over things. This mindset makes for the best weddings and the best wedding photographs. Deborah was lucky enough to even had two dresses! She looked stunning in them both!
I hope they both like this preview and have enjoyed their honeymoon in Las Vegas! Facebook photos looked great! x
