You just can’t beat the colours and the light of an autumn wedding. Charlotte and Rob really embraced autumn as a theme for their wedding at Masonic Hall Durham. (Freemasons Hall) The burgundy bridesmaid dresses, autumnal cake and wooden heart centrepieces really complemented the natural beauty of the season.

      Charlotte looked gorgeous in her rose-pink dress, and wore a Tiara that even Megan Markel would be jealous. At Durham Masonic Hall. (Freemasons Hall)

      Furthermore, also loved the red butterflies nestling in her bouquet. The Grand Hall (Freemason hall) that Charlotte got ready in was really stunning, I was fascinated by all of the ancient symbols on the walls. Some are covered up with little curtains, but I had a sneaky peek. So much history at Masonic Hall Durham. They have perfect function rooms for weddings.

      Charlotte and Rob’s service was a really personal affair, as both are members of the church on Durham’s Old Elvet. The vicar was a friend of theirs and even had a present for the couple. I was super impressed that Rob had applied the personal touch to the day by designing the service books. Having been there when he tried to get them printed, I can confirm it is not as straightforward as you might think!

      After the service, we took a romantic walk down to the river to see the rowers in action. It gave me a chance to play with the leaves and take advantage of the autumn light and colours. We even managed to capture some Durham rowers going past. It was a beautiful day as we managed to capture some pictures on the bridge and stroll by the riverside.

       Masonic Hall Durham has the most spectacular staircase, which made a perfect centrepiece to base the group shots around.
       Meanwhile Rob and Charlotte’s nephew also made the perfect model, he really was one of the cutest little guys I’ve ever met at Durham Masonic Hall.

      To conclude, Charlotte and Rob had booked the most fantastic wedding band, Switch. As the guests danced the night away, I must confess I downed tools and had a little bop with Greta, my second shooter. They were too good to resist. I had a great day in Durham, it was my first time inside a Masonic Hall, and I’ll never forget that staircase! Freemasons Hall are fantastic. Thank you so much, Rob and Charlotte for making me part of your special day, love Lindsey Xx
