A wonderful summer wedding in a beautiful church in Darlington with a village hall style reception in St Augustine's Parish Centre. Grace and the bridal party walked in the sunshine to the wedding ceremony from the house, through Stanhope park, where we also crossed through shooting portraits on the way to the reception. Everything was very 'DIY', The reception was adorned with lots of Gypsophila and white flowers, matching the bridal bouquet with strings of fairy and festoon lighting and candles in jars. The couple had their own 'branded' wine on the tables, and lots of photos to personalise the bunting and welcome banner. Paella was served for the wedding breakfast by Antonio Garcia. Unfortunately, the heatwave brought a bit of a summer storm, but we got some great photos in the rain anyway!
