We were privileged to be the wedding photographers for Hannah & Craig’s wedding at the iconic Durham Castle along with our second photographer Dru Dodd.
Built in 1072 under the orders of William the Conqueror, Durham Castle is a perfect example of preserved history in the North East of England, with it’s cobbled entrance & archways to it’s sweeping driveway around to the main entrance it is a beautiful backdrop for a wedding.
Hannah & Craig had family join them from all over the world; Craig’s family traveled from New Zealand, his Japanese parents that he lived with for the year he was in their country to friends from America to name a few.
"We cannot thank you enough for capturing our perfect day so, well...perfectly. We are over the moon with the photos, as are our guests who have commented on them in the most positive of lights.
We have loved getting to know you over the last 8 months or so and are truly glad that we found you. We could not have asked for more hardworking photographers with great attention to detail.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
The ceremony was held in the main castle chapel followed by a reception in The Great Hall, the theme was white with accents of spring colours (mint, lavender, pink & blue), the centerpiece’s were white birdcages filled with carnations & gypsophilia, the cake was 3 tiered with flowers to match the bridesmaid colours.
The day itself was cloudy but filled with fun, laughter & a few tears along the way - especially as Craig’s mum couldn’t make their big day but had sent a very touching recorded message to them both.
The day closed with sparklers outdoors followed by the New Zealand boys performing a traditional Haka - suited & booted – fantastic - a wedding photographers dream!
We wish them all the best & thank them for allowing us to be a part of their big day; one that we certainly won’t forget.
And a big thank you to Dru for his assistance and to the best man Scott & maid of honor Clara…..……….you guys rock.
Craig & Andrea xx
