Rob and Charlotte
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 Durham’s Masonic Hall. The burgundy bridesmaid dresses, autumnal cake and wooden heart centre pieces really complemented the natural beauty of the season. Charlotte looked gorgeous in her rose-pink dress, and I particularly enjoyed her ‘tiara-off’ with The Queen. I also loved the red butterflies nestling in her bouquet. The grand Templar Hall that Charlotte got ready in was really stunning, I was fascinated by all of the ancient symbols on the walls.
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. And it was hugs all round in the pews, as he spread the love amongst the guests. 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. Durham’s Masonic Hall has the most spectacular staircase, which made a perfect centrepiece to base the group shots around. Rob and Charlotte’s nephew also made the perfect model, he really was one of the cutest little guys I’ve ever met.
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. Thank you so much, Rob and Charlotte for making me part of your special day, love Lindsey Xx
