We initially met Laura and Aaron at a wedding fair in spring 2016 at the Hilton in Gateshead. By their own admission, they were so laid back, it took them weeks to get in touch with us. When we did eventually meet up, it was meant to be.

Laura and Aaron chose Ellingham Hall as their venue. Surrounded by beautiful Northumbrian countryside, they had the entire venue to themselves for the whole weekend.

On the day itself, the sun was shining, which meant the ceremony took place outside on the lawn. With the guests seated and the harpist ready, the whole backdrop was in place for this incredible couple.

Aaron scrubbed up well on the morning as Laura relaxed with the girls.
Laura looked amazing from head to toe and she was beaming as she prepared to head downstairs.
The moment of the day that had everyone in hysterics. As Laura and her mum made their way down the isle, a gust of wind took her mum's hat and the photographs tell the rest of the story.
Look at that setting! Outdoors, sunshine and Ellingham Hall in the background. What a place to get married.
Some group photographs followed before headed inside for speeches. Then came the shot of the day, provided by the beautiful sunshine and some fortuitous barbecue smoke as the chef prepare the evening buffet.
After a relaxing couple session, we headed inside for the first dance.
Hip Operation provided the evening entertainment with a performance that had all the guests up dancing.
As you can see, we got in right among the action to cap off an amazing day.
