Emmie and Matt got married in the stunning setting of Rockliffe Hall, near Darlington in County Durham. The personal touches and the atmosphere at their wedding were second to none and it was an absolute pleasure to capture the day for them.
Mark started the day with Matt and his groomsmen who were getting ready in one of the houses in the grounds of Rockliffe Hall.
Meanwhile I was with Emmie and the girls in the hotel, capturing images of the beautiful dresses and flowers and the bridal preparations.
As Emmie’s dad was greeting his beautiful daughter, Matt was making his way over to Rockliffe Hall.
Then it was time for the guests to be seated for the ceremony.
Emmie and her dad descended the staircase to the Old Hall Arches for the ceremony.
During the lovely wedding ceremony, Emmie and Matt had expressions of sheer delight on their faces.
Following the ceremony, Emmie and Matt headed out onto the terrace where they were showered with confetti by their guests.
The hotel grounds provided a lovely backdrop for some photographs of the newlyweds.
Then we made the most of the stunning hotel interior too and captured some images of the two of them inside.
Back in the grounds we captured some group images of Emmie and Matt with key wedding guests, including this image of Emmie with her bridesmaids.
Just before everyone headed into the Rockliffe Suite for the receiving line and wedding breakfast, we captured an image of all the wedding guests together.
The Rockliffe Suite had been set up beautifully for the reception and there were lots of fantastic personal touches including this vintage suitcase table plan.
The flowers and cake were courtesy of Emmie’s very talented mum.
Emmie, Matt and their parents greeted family and friends as they entered the Rockliffe Suite.
The speeches were great.
After a fantastic day, the evening celebrations began with Emmie and Matt’s lovely first dance.
After we had posted their wedding disc, we were delighted to get a text from Emmie the day it arrived saying “We LOVE the pictures! Just amazing. We have no idea which one to pick for our thank you cards!!! xx” Shortly after we also received a lovely thank you card from them which read “We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you did on our wedding day. The photographs are incredible, just what we wanted. We are so pleased you captured our special day. Love Emmie and Matt xxxx”
