Emma and Richie got married in July at the lovely Horton Grange, which is an old country house in Northumberland. It was such a happy day and the sun shone all day long!
The outdoor ceremony
The ceremony was a legal ceremony in the grounds of the venue. out in the gardens, and the guests sat on wooden chairs dressed with red sashes, with the sun shining down. During the ceremony a string quartet played. It was so emotional and so beautiful.
After the ceremony
The reception was in a beautiful room at the venue. They chose Horton Grange because it’s so cosy and relaxed and they just fell in love with it. It was a laid-back wedding, which was so chilled out and fun. I love shooting Horton Grange weddings because it’s always so intimate. The option of an outdoor ceremony is really special too.
They had a drinks reception in the afternoon, and a caricature artist, magician and candy floss machine in the evening. It was such a fun vibe getting entertained by the magician, seeing everyones funny caricature portraits and eating candy floss! The most fun part of the day was the afternoon reception, because it gave the day a lighthearted mood. It was so perfect chilling outside in the sunshine, watching magic tricks and eating candy floss!! They also had string quartet during the ceremony – it was so personal!
They decorated the venue with flowers and tealights, because it worked so well with the time of year.
For dinner they served a roast dinner, which was loved by all the guests. The first dance involved the wedding party getting on the dancefloor to get the dancing going, and they finished off the evening with a ‘last dance’.
The couple met on a night out through a mutual friend and have been together for three years. They got in touch with me after we chatted at the Biscuit Factory Wedding Fair and their enquiry was really touching. They said they wanted a photographer who would be like a guest, and I really liked that they were so relaxed. I blummin’ love these two!!
The couple says that if you’re planning your wedding, the biggest piece of advice they could give you is to make sure the wedding planner at the venue you have picked keeps you up to speed with what’s happening and ask them to give you a timeline of what needs to be sorted when.
Emma and Richie’s wedding was everything I love about weddings and had such a fun atmosphere. Here’s their Horton Grange wedding!
