RELAXED SPRING WEDDING AT ACKLAM HALL IN MIDDLESBROUGH – RACHAEL AND GRAEME

IF YOU LOVE DOGS WEARING BOW TIES AND CHINA TEA CUPS THEN YOU’LL LOVE THIS SPRING WEDDING!

Rachael and Graeme got married at the lovely Acklam Hall, Middlesbrough, on May 19th, the same day as the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It was a wonderful relaxed wedding, with china tea cups on the tables and pretty pastel pinks as the colour scheme.

Getting ready

Rachael got ready at her parents house in Tollesby, Middlesbrough with her bridesmaids, and there was such a happy vibe. Lots of excited tears from everyone! She wore a gorgeous dress from Butterflies in Thornaby, and looked so stunning. She then hopped into a fancy wedding car to get to the ceremony.

Graeme got ready at his parents house in Marton, Middlesbrough, with his little dog all dressed up for the occasion wearing a smart bow tie! Graeme wore a dapper suit, and looked really handsome. He travelled to the ceremony with his Best Man.

The ceremony

The ceremony took place in St Cuthberts their local church in Marton. The ceremony area was inside the tiny Church, which was so perfect, because it made it so cosy. The ceremony began with everyone singing their favourite song, and finished with a sweeping first kiss. It was a beautiful ceremony, full of excited hand squeezes and nervous giggles.

After the ceremony, we travelled to the reception, which was really chilled out. Then the couple mingled with their guests, which was the perfect time for me to get candid photos. I got some lovely guest photos as they enjoyed the afternoon – After that we snook off to get some lovely couples portraits. The weather was all sunshine and blue skies, it was a beautiful day.

The reception

Rachael and Graeme chose to have their wedding at Acklam Hall because it’s near their home, and it’s so cosy and relaxed. Acklam Hall is an old former school, and it’s got such a romantic vibe, especially at sunset when the golden sun is glowing.

The party

After dinner, guests played in the photobooth, and the evening got started. The live band played all the best songs to get everyone dancing.

I loved this Acklam Hall Wedding wedding so much. If you’re getting married and looking for a relaxed wedding photographer, get in touch. Here are the photos!

A colourful Engagement Photo shoot on Saltburn Beach – Sam and Craig

A colourful Engagement Photo shoot on Saltburn Beach – Sam and Craig

 

Sam and Craig chose lovely Saltburn beach for their Engagement Photo session.  Its a place they often go, so it seemed like a great choice for a relaxed and fun photo shoot.  Let’s face it, it is a bit weird having your photo taken, and thats why I love meeting couples before the big day for a practice shoot.  We have a bit of a laugh, go for a wander wherever the mood takes us, and all the nerves about being in front of the camera soon disappear.  Its great on the wedding day when we can just pick up where we left off and capture some amazing images of the two of you together.  I was amazed with the new funky coloured beach huts they have along the promenade, they look so cool!  The beach is amazing and there’s an old Pier too!  Sam and Craig are an amazing couple and I can’t wait for their wedding at Ormesby Hall at the weekend!!!
